2015 SPONSORSHIPS

3DAAA committee is pleased to announce some exciting new sponsorship & incentive programs.

Abbey Archery have confirmed their continued support of our young archers with the promise of two bows - one lucky cub & one lucky youth will again win a new bow, to be presented at the 2015 National Championship Presentation. Every time our cub & youth members shoot, their name is added to the draw. Shooting Nationals will give them two entries with the draw being conducted by random number generator.

We are also proud to announce that Hoyt has joined our sponsors with the offer of a new 2016 Hoyt bow of choice to an adult shooting member. All adults will receive one entry for every sanctioned shoot they attend & shoot, with two entries at Nationals. The winner will be drawn at the annual Presentation following Nationals & will be able to choose their bow from the 2016 line-up.

3DAAA have negotiated a deal with Benson Archery Supplies to supply us with 18-1 targets for our kids. There will be 2 brand new 18-1 targets at each sanctioned event a cub & youth will be drawn at random at each event to give them a new home. To be completely fair, this can only be won once by a cub or youth in the shooting year.

There has also been a program set up for Archery Allience endorsed dealers and some archery manufactures to have their logos on the score sheet for 2015. We developed a 3 level system, Gold, Silver and Bronze, due to the monetary value contributed by the sponsor.Part of this sponsorship will help with providing the end of year trophies and a pull up banners which will be at all sanctioned shoots. So please help support these sponsors who support 3DAAA.

Not to be left out, clubs will also have the opportunity to win their club a standing bear target. At each sanctioned shoot club members should write down the name of their club or, if a member of more than one club, their club of choice. At the annual presentation the club with the highest attendance at sanctioned shoots will win the target, which will be at the venue ready to be transported to its new home.
