If you’re a competitive archer looking for a challenge, there’s a tournament coming up in the Southern California area you might want to check out.
In October, the Duel in the Desert Trials and Desert Open will be held at the El Dorado Park Archery Field in Long Beach.
The event is hosted by the United JOAD and Southern California Archers and is a Star FITA and IPC recognized tournament. It will take place on October 6 – 7, 2012.
The trials are a competition for a spot on the team that will represent California in the Duel in the Desert, an annual team competition between California and Arizona which will take place on November 10 -11 in Arizona.
If you’re not aiming to be on the team, you can still shoot. And, since this is a Star FITA tournament, you can get a special achievement pin from FITA if you shoot a certain score. There are pins starting from 1000, 1100, 1200, 1300, and 1400.
