What a great Indoor Championship! See the Results tab for the full listing. Over 160 archers took part and over 30 new state records were established or broken (these will be posted soon).
It's almost time to put the FIELD back in NC Field Archery Association! If you've never shot field archery, come along and give it a try.
Our opening shoot will be on Saturday March 14th at Durham County. We're also planning to hand out Championship awards that day, and since March 14th is Pi Day, we shall serve pie! The outdoor schedule is still filling up, see below, and they'll be added to Carolina Archery Schedule, too. We are delighted that Big Buck will be hosting the 2015 Outdoor Championship in August.
A few Indoor State Championship numbers to show why archery is such a great sport for everyone:
45% of our Championship archers were under 15 years old and they broke 11 state records. This is great for the future of the sport!
10% of our Championship archers were over the age of 50 and 5% were over 60. They broke or established 13 state records this year.
43% of our archers were women, 57% were men.
