Big Sky Open Archery Tournament
An NFAA Pro Sanctioned Archery Tournament
June 17, 18, & 19, 2016
Our tournament is being held at the Easton Archery Center
Located at 575 John Glenn Rd, Salt Lake City, UT
Since 1974, the Big Sky Open has been hosting a por/am outdoor archery tournament for competitive archery from every part of the country. The tournament originated in Montana for the first year and then moved to Colorado in 1975. In the 35 years of its existence, the Big Sky Open was also held in Utah as well as different locations in Colorado. This year, the Big Sky is returning to Utah and is scheduled to be held at the wonderful new Easton Archery Center facility.
The Big Sky Open offers a different venue for those who love to compete in the sport of archery: Colored targets set in a V-Formation from 20-65 yards, 20 targets per day. Adult archers, in groups of 3-4, start every 5 minutes at the 20 yard target on either the left or right side of the field. At the end of 10 targets, they take a break and resume shooting on the opposite side from which they started. In two days of shooting, they have the opportunity to possibly shoot a perfect total score of 1200.
On Friday evening, the “GoForIt” Clay Pigeon event will be held. Archers will shoot a special scoring round that is not only fun, but is also a great warm-up for the main competition to take place on Saturday and Sunday.
Saturday afternoon, a “Shoot-Down” will be held for those who want to try their skills in breaking clay pigeon targets from 10 years to wherever the last man or woman standing takes them. This is an exciting event to watch and see who has the skills, nerves, and stamina to take on the small targets at any yardage.
Unlike other tournaments, and after 35 years, there has never been a recorded perfect score during the regular competition of the Big Sky Open.
At the new Easton facility, the youth will have their own range indoors and will shoot from 10 to 40 yards depending on their age.
Salt Lake City offers an abundance of attractions and shopping for the enjoyment of all when not competing. Bring the whole family and join us for a great weekend of archery and fun at the Big Sky Open!
