2010 JOAD Outdoor Nationals Bid Documents
2010 National Target Championship and Indoor Championships bid documents
The JOAD National Outdoor Championship rotates to the North Region in 2010. USAA JOAD Clubs are encouraged to bid on the tourney. Collaboration with a JOAD club is a great way to insure the event has that special JOAD touch.

Note that the intent of the regional rotation for the JOAD National Outdoor Championship is to bring the tourney to a variety of areas in order to promote JOAD to communities that have not seen USAA national championship target archery and to make the USAA national championships closer to those who might not otherwise be close to another national championship.

To that end, JOAD clubs, clubs, state associations and communities in the north region (Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin) are encouraged and invited to collaborate and bid for the event. The 2010 host is encouraged to visit and take part in the 2009 JOAD National Outdoor Championship, which is being held in Downingtown, PA. The tournament director is Cindy Bevilacqua

2008 National Indoor Championship and 2008 National JOAD Indoor Championship
The 2008 National Indoor Championship and 2008 National JOAD Indoor Championship is held in a dozen different locations across the country in late February and early March.

The National Indoor Championship is a 1200 round usually shoot over two days. The National JOAD Indoor Championship is a single 600 round. Note how Bowman and Cubs score at the National JOAD Indoor Championship, recurve archers compete on a 60 cm face and compound archers score the outer 10 ring of a 40 cm face.

“Indoor target archery is where most JOADs begin competing because the distance is only about 60 feet (18 meters), yet it is the same distance as the FITA Indoors World Championships. JOADs are lucky to be able to compete in two USAA National Championships during one trip.” said Bob Pian USAA JOAD Committee Co Chair.

On time registrations are due February 8, 2008.
