Foley is quickly gaining a reputation as an archery city and the return of the USA Archery Collegiate 3D Nationals October 14 – 16 will only reinforce that title.
The competition, a partnership between USA Archery and the Archery Shooters Association (ASA), is set to draw more than 200 shooters from around the country including Tennessee, Kentucky, Wisconsin, Texas, and California. ASA President Mike Tyrell said this year’s participants will be excited to have the tournament banquet and shootdown return to the schedule after having to forego it last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He said hosting in Foley has always been a draw for the event.
“Foley has great staff, wonderful facilities, a great location, and usually very nice weather this time of year,” Tyrell said.
Foley Sports Tourism Event Operations Manager Angela Sullivan said the entire staff loves being a part of this event.
“These shooters are incredible because they never seem to take the opportunity to compete for granted,” Sullivan said. “There is a genuine excitement not just for themselves but also for their teammates. The shootdown is something our staff looks forward to every year because these kids are right there cheering each other on. The atmosphere is electric.”
The USA Archery Collegiate 3D Nationals will take place at Graham Creek nature Preserve all day October 14 – 16, with the final awards banquet and shootdown scheduled for Saturday evening at the Foley Event Center. For more information on this or any FST event visit our events page.
