  Advanced Archery to Host First NASP Tournament on 2/8

On  Saturday, 2/8 Arete Prep Archery will host over 200 Archers in a NASP "Fun Shoot" Tournament on the Arete Prep campus. This tournament will feature archers from grades 4-12, and will include bullseye and 3D competition for NASP archers, as well as a novelty shoot and learn to shoot area for all in attendance. This tournament will help bring in funds for both the Archery program, and Arete Prep Athletics. There is no admission charge, and parking is free. Parking will be limited on campus however, and cars will be directed to the parking lots north of Baseline Road. There is no parking at Wedgewood on this day either, as they have an event of their own. 

There will be concessions, raffles, and prizes as part of the day, including a raffle to win a 3 day guided hunt courtesy of Dream Mountain Outfitters. You can purchase those raffle tickets at the following link, right up until the day of the tournament.
