ASA= Archery Shooters Association. It is a national organization that holds 6 National ProAm events/year and the Classic(their World Championship). They also have a Federation circuit at the state level. ProAms are held in Gainesville FL, Columbus GA, Paris TX, Augusta GA, London KY, Metropolis IL and the Classic will be held in West Monroe, LA.They have classes for everyone from Open Pro(compound) to Eagle(8-9 years old).
The Traditional class rules are simple, any recurve or longbow, any type of arrow, 12" max stabilizer, any rest, no string/face walking, no clickers. That pretty much covers the equipment. We are very fortunate that ASA gives us our own range on Saturday morning. With the exception of an occasional compound shooter(someone who has to shoot one round with us because of some type of time conflict) there are no compounders on our range normally. We shoot all 40 targets on Saturday morning beginning at 8 am. Usually we are finished by 11 or so(as long as we can get Van to remember to take an arrow with him to the stake
).Sorry Van had to let your secret out. It is a good group of guys to shoot with and you never know who might show up. As I said in last month's thread a lot of big name Trad shooters have shot ASA in the past.
Membership to ASA is $30/year and you must be a member to shoot. However in Traditional and a couple of other classes you can shoot one shoot/year as a "guest" for a $5 fee. The entry fee for the tournament is $30 with a payback of 70% to the top 15% of the field.
I hope this answers some of your questions.
