Beginning May 8th at 4:45pm the first of over 10,500 archers will take the range to begin the 11th annual NASP® national tournament. In 2012 this event was certified by Guinness® World Records as the largest archery tournament in the world with 7,804 archers. This year 10,800 archers are registered. The doors will officially open at 3:00pm on Thursday May 8th for the first of three scheduled flights at 4:45PM-8”15PM. Friday; flights are scheduled all day from 8:00am through 8:15pm.

Several exhibitors will display their archery, outdoor, and “kid’s stuff” throughout the event. Interactive shooting exhibits will provide aerial, pop-up, archery golf, and simulated bow fishing fun.

New this year, in partnership with the International Bowhunting Organization (IBO), a new and exciting event will be held in addition to the standard NASP® National Bulls-eye competition. The NASP® IBO 3-D Challenge will offer opportunity for students to experience the fun of 3-D archery in a NASP®-friendly style at familiar shooting distances and equipment. With their NASP® bows and arrows, archers will shoot 30 scored arrows, at foam animal-like targets for a possible 300 points—just like the NASP® bulls-eye competition.

Many of the NASP® national tournament archers will meet again at the 2014 NASP® World Tournament in Madison Wisconsin, at the Alliant Energy Center, July 11, 12, 13, 2014. Joining them will be their NASP® peers from Canada, Africa, and the United Kingdom.

Immediately following the World Tournament will be the 2014 NASP® All-Nation All-Star Championship, also being held in Madison, Wisconsin, July 14, 15, 16.
