Times-Tribune Staff Report
Professional and amateur archers will come to London beginning Friday, June 1 through Sunday, for the Archery Shooters Association tournament.
The Laurel-County Tourist Commission will host the event at the Laurel County Fairgrounds on KY 229, south of London.
More than 1,300 professional and amateur archers from more than 30 states will be there. Monday and Tuesday of the week will see archers begin preparing for the weekend’s tournament.
Rodney Hendrickson, of the tourist commission, said local archers are more than welcome to come out and shoot with the pros or just watch the competition.
He added that the professional archers will happily provide pointers on archery fundamentals and techniques.
In past years, 15 percent of the competitors were women and about less than 10 percent have been less than 18 years old.
Tens of thousands of dollars in prize money will be at stake in the London ASA Pro/Am. It is the second largest ASA tournament in the U.S.
Costs to participate range from $5 for children, $30 for amateurs and $250 for professionals.
