ASA Tour event this weekend

It’s almost time for competitive archers, family, staff and sponsors to arrive at Camp Minden for the second McKenzie Archery Shooters Association (ASA) Easton/Hoyt Pro/Am Tour event.

To assist the anticipated large crowds, Bossier Parish is supplying signage directing participants and guests to the shooting ranges for the big event which kicks off Thursday, April 27 and continues through Sunday.

Last year’s event, the first to be held at Camp Minden, drew a reported 1,655 participants, sponsors and staff from 41 states plus Canada and Australia. ASA signed a 10-year contract to hold the tournament at the site, and area officials predict the event will generate around $25 million in economic impact over that period.
