Steve is Archery Advocate, Level III Coach, Arizona JOAD Board member, Tournament Judge, and JOAD Club leader. All proceeds raised from this event will go to help pay medical bills and the many needs that arise from this diagnosis.

USAA Junior Dream Team (JDT) Program Invitation:
The JDT is open to junior RECURVE archers between the ages of 12-13 and around 18 (ends at high school graduation). It is a high level archery training program led by US National Head Coach KiSik Lee. Local archers who have in the past, or who continue to participate in this program include Kiley Larrick, Nathan Yamaguchi, Karissa Yamaguchi, and Andrew Mateo. Coach Mel Nichols and Gary Yamaguchi participate as coaches in the program. All participants must agree to learn the National Training System (NTS), and to shoot at tournaments using the NTS system. Successful applicants will attend at least two week-long training camps at one of the Olympic Training Centers per year, as well as agree to document their training on a weekly basis, serve as representatives of USA Archery and the United States, and to compete in national ranking events. Typically, JDT archers place at or near the top of youth archery events in the USA, and many go on to become Resident Athletes at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista CA, south of San Diego.
For 2012, the JDT Selection Camp will be held at the Chula Vista OTC from November 29th to December 2nd. Anyone who can meet the qualifications for the camp and who is interested in trying out for the team, please ask them to submit their application as soon as possible. Anyone who has questions can address them to Gary Yamaguchi at email@example.com The deadline for submissions is September 24th, 2012.

|Final chance. ASAA JOAD Clubs, we need your flyers to hand out at the AZGFD Expo. http://www.azgfd.gov/outdoor_recreation/showcase.shtml|
We expect 100 to 500 very interested inquiries about where to find a place to shoot archery. These are your future club members and those that will take over your clubs when you retire.
Get you flyers to Rick Bachman email@example.com
ALSO, we have very few helpers at the Expo. We need volunteers to answer question about your club and what target archery at your club is like. Please email Rick and volunteer firstname.lastname@example.org
I have worked this event for several years. It is best to have a group of people work the booth and then rotate staffing the booth while others walk around and see all there is to see and do.
