My good friend, Kelly Wells, Executive Director at the Shreveport/Bossier Sports Commission, broke the news over the weekend about an incredibly exciting event scheduled for our area in the spring of 2022.
According to Kelly's post, Shreveport, Bossier City and Minden, Louisiana, have partnered with the National Guard at Camp Minden, Bossier Parish, Webster Parish and Caddo Parish, along with the City of Bossier City and Lieutenant Governor Billy Nunguesser and the Louisiana Office of Tourism, to host the 2022 ASA Easton/Hoyt Outdoor 3-D Archery Tournament.
This is a huge, national event that is expected to bring an estimated two thousand archers from forty nine states to compete and another fifteen hundred friends and family to the Shreveport/Bossier/Minden area from April 21 to April 24, 2022.
The four day archery event will take place at Camp Minden and the Pro Shoot will be held at the Bossier Civic Center on April 20th and will be televised live on the Sportman’s Channel.
Kelly goes on to challenge our local archers to compete in hopes some will make it to the podium.
