Commission discusses improvements to ASA tour event

Representatives of several local agencies involved in the successful inaugural Archery Shooters Association (ASA) tour event held at Camp Minden in April met Wednesday to discuss what can be done to make future events even better. ASA agreed to a 10-year run at the site.

Number for the 2022 edition showed 1,655 competitors, family and vendors attended the event from 41 states and two countries (Canada and Australia). Organizers predict a $25 million economic impact for the area over the 10 years.

Attending the after action review were members of the Louisiana National Guard, Bossier Parish Police Jury, Webster Parish Police Jury, Webster Parish Sheriff’s Office, Shreveport-Bossier Sports Commission and Camp Minden officials. Also taking part in the ASA event were the Caddo Parish Commission and the city of Bossier City.

Plans for the future include additional millage materials for the Guard’s staging area, tournament village grounds and archery shooting lanes. The possibility of electrical service to the area, along with Wi-Fi availability and other amenities were also considered.
