2018 MA Outdoor State and JOAD Championships
2018 Massachusetts State Outdoor and JOAD Results Final Results!
The first day of the 2018 Massachusetts State Outdoor and JOAD Championships was plagued with bad weather. At 10:55 am after the first distance was completed, the weather turned from gray skies, with reasonable winds (4-8 mph) to a torrential downpour, that reduced visibility, with thunder ad lightning. As a result we discontinued the tournament after completing the first distance and we will resume on Sunday, 8/5/18, with practice at 8:00 am followed by the third and fourth distances.
The second day of the 2018 Massachusetts State Outdoor and JOAD Championships was gorgeous! Clear skies, occasional fluffy clouds, hot with low humidity. There was very little wind. We have a much better time on the second day!
Many archers posted personal best scores. Congratulations!
Many people we using this tournament to get ready for National Target Championships latter in week at Columbus OH. We all wish them good travels and good shooting at National Target Championships!
