FLORESVILLE -- The third installment of the Texas 1080 Texas Outdoor Target Series will be held Saturday, June 15, in Floresville.

In an effort to offer more outdoor target archery events during the summer, the Texas State Archery Association (TSAA) has created an outdoor target archery series that will feature a new 108-arrow round in an “outdoor league” atmosphere, and a chance to shoot for two titles at the annual TSAA state outdoor tournament in the fall. Archers wishing to participate in the Texas Outdoor Target Series will have several opportunities statewide to shoot at qualifying events. A minimum of three qualifying scores will be required to compete for the championship title. The final championship event for the series will be decided on day one of the state outdoor target championship in the fall.

The “Texas 1080” round is designed to offer archers and event organizers an efficient, easy-to-set-up and easy-to-shoot tournament that can be completed in one day, while still allowing time for travel across Texas. The round reduces a full Federation of International Archery round by 36 arrows, but still preserves the multiple distances and target sizes many archers enjoy. It also features the target size and distance every archer will shoot for their elimination rounds during Olympic Round events.

Texas 1080 distance and target sizes will be gender-and discipline-neutral, and are as follows: Adults and Juniors: 70/50/30 meters; Cadets: 60/50/30 meters; Cubs: 50/30/20 meters; Bowmen: 30/25/20 meters. Target sizes will be 122/80/60 cm.

At the Floresville event, practice will begin at 9 a.m., and scoring starts at 10 a.m. The event will be held off F.M. 775. Participants and spectators should take chairs, as there will be limited seating, and are also encouraged to take a tent or canopy if they would like. Bug spray is recommended, as the event will be held near the San Antonio River. Junior Olympic Archery Development will be handling concessions at the field, and there is fast food in town.

For more information on the Texas Outdoor Target Series, call Angela Spangler at 210-464-7435 or email angela.spangler@gmail.com. The fee is $20 per shooter, and the field will be limited to the first 40 archers.

Local archers may also be interested in learning more about the Quivering Bulls Eye Archery Club located in Wilson County. The Junior Olympic Archery Development club meets on Friday evenings from 7-8:30 p.m. at the Wilson County Show Barn. Basic archery lessons are offered to the youth on Wednesday mornings from 9 a.m.-12 noon, and private lessons are available to adults and youth. The club is also currently looking for board members to help create a 501c3 to offer more archery in the county. For more information on the club, call Susan Schwartz at 210-632-7049 or email qbea@gmx.com.
