SoCal Archer Wins Big In Vegas!
Many of you know that last year we had a new archery pro shop open up just a few blocks from my house. I've popped my head in at Archery Outpost a few times in the past year to shoot, talk shop, fix gear, buy stuff and more. It's truly a happening place that just seems to get better and so do the archers that work there.

The National Field Archery Association - NFAA World Archery Festival was held February 11-13, 2011 at the Riviera Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV.

Connor Kelly, son of Archery Outpost owner Laura Kelly, was a big winner at the festival. Connor shot in the Compound Unlimited Flights division. There were over 600 archers in this division and at the end of day three there were four archers in Flight 1 tied for 2nd place with 899. The only thing separating them was the X count (knocking out the X in the bullseye). To give you some perspective a perfect score is 900 with 90 X's. There were six archers that shot 898 with one in that group that shot 76 X's. Prize money was handed out to the top eight archers in this division. Final totals brought everyone together and Connor ended up shooting an 899 for the tournament with a total of 75 X's as he took first place!

Congratulations, Connor!
