Did you know…

Ben Avery is the largest shooting facility in the USA.
Your entry fee for the Arizona Cup includes use of the firearms shooting range.
Many archers are bringing their firearms to take advantage of this opportunity.
Have a good and safe time.

Make sure you prepare for all kinds of weather ;)

It is a great tournament, and was my first outdoor tournament when I started and I haven't missed it since.

Confirmed;

2005 Arizona Cup tournament entry fee includes the $5/day Ben Avery Shooting Range use fee.
The Ben Avery fee includes use of the public firearms range as well as the field archery ranges.
A voucher, that must be signed and dated by tournament organizers, will be available at the official tournament check in table.
(The Ben Avery Staff will distribute an example voucher to the Range masters so they should be well informed.)

Contact the tournament staff at [email protected] if a voucher is need on official practice day before check in.

Background:
Ever wonder why the Arizona Cup is a bit more expensive than other tournaments?
$5/day/archer is paid by the Arizona Cup to the Ben Avery Shooting Facility.
That amounts to $20 per contestant for the four day tourney.
We encourage you to use all of Ben Avery facilities…“You paid for it”
Parking and spectator admission to the 2005 Arizona Cup is FREE!

Thanks for the info, Bob.

It's great to have a world-class shooting facility to use when we're not launching arrows.

A few times, I have shot IPSC matches there during AZ Cup week, the Cactus League shooters run an evening shoot under the lights that has to be one of the best local events to be found in the nation, and of course Ben Avery is a national treasure to firearms enthusiasts. I particularly have enjoyed the many times I've been able to teach safe and effective firearms use to international guests at the tournament. (Those Swedes are good rifle shooters !)

Hope you can keep the developers who want that land at bay a while longer... I know it's a battle.

There's a downside to Ben Avery too. I was told yesterday that they have pulled all the markers from the two field courses on the hillside, in essence shutting them down because "nobody uses them". I shot the state FITA Field on that hillside last year. Guess the other shooters and I are "nobody".

As someone who wants to see field archery (both NFAA and FITA) come back from the grave 3D has burried it in, this was very bad news.
