2019 AZ State Masters Archers


Of the 44 archers that registered, 39 were present and competed. Archers ages 50+ were eligible to compete for the state champion title in one of 18 available divisions. The archers shot 30 arrows at 3 different distances (60/50/40 meters) for a total possible score of 900 points.

The shoot started promptly at 8:30am and awards wrapped around noon. The weather was agreeable with light winds & temperatures in the 80s. All archers competing completed the 900 round.


The top score shot in the tournament was an impressive 881 by Larry Butterfield (Compound Master 60 Men)! The top Barebow score was shot by Ron Shinn with a 675 and the top Recurve score was shot by Gary Yamaguchi with an 808! Caytie Belzner shot the top female score of the tournament with an 823. Congratulations to all!

There were 20 new state records set this year and 1 record tied. It's incredible to see how the Masters archers just keep getting better with age and bring some fierce competition to the shooting line each year.

RESULTS - 2019 AZ State Field Championships

posted Mar 11, 2019, 8:50 PM by Kristy Wapniarski

Thank you to Lawrence Brady & Desert Destroyers for hosting such a fun event this past weekend at the Oro Valley Naranja Archery Range. This inaugural two day event consisted of 24 unmarked distance targets shot on day one and another 24 marked distance targets on day two. Many of the competitors were experiencing field archery for the first time and walked away with a new appreciation for the sport. 

We want to acknowledge both Terry and Diana LaBeau for all of their hard work and time that they dedicated to the set up and execution of this tournament. This shoot would not have happened if it was not for their willingness to share their expertise with the community. THANK YOU for all that you do for the Arizona archery community.
