NASP Tourney set for Friday and Saturday

A record number of archers are scheduled to compete this weekend in the North Dakota National Archery in the Schools Program state tournament at the State Fair Center in Minot. The tournament will feature competition in Bullseye or Olympic style, and 3-D.

The tournament, to be held Friday and Saturday, consists of team and individual competition in elementary, middle school and high school, including awards and prizes, and up to $20,000 in college scholarships available to the top 10 boys and girls in each grade division.

Additionally, the top 10 boys and girls qualify for NASP nationals in Louisville, Ky. The top prize in the 3-D competition is an all-inclusive pronghorn hunt in Wyoming.

The state tournament and all other local and regional NASP tournaments are open to any student in grades 4-12 who attend a school that offers NASP lessons during the school day. If a school has an after-school club, third-graders are also welcome, with permission from the coach and principal.
