Archery Encounters Snags Its First Blizzard Bi-Archelon Competition

ERIE, Pa: — Erie-based Archery Encounters will host the Blizzard Bi-Archelon on Jan. 25 at Erie Premier Sports Pennbriar, the first USA Archery sanctioned event hosted by Archery Encounters. 

Participants will compete in two formats to determine a winner: Indoor Target and 3D. Participants must be members of USA Archery in order to compete, and can register for membership on-site.

Divisions offered will include barebow, recurve, compound, para (including visually impaired, W1, compound open and recurve open) and collegiate bowhunter. A variety of classes will be offered for all ages.
