2017 Arizona State JOAD Indoor
Desert Sky Archers would like to thank Corner Archery for hosting an excellent tournament. While the tournament was held at our home range; Corner Archery and their Corner Kidz JOAD did a superb job running a well-organized tournament.
The Desert Sky coaches are proud of our archers. They all shot incredibly well and more importantly, they should be proud of themselves.
