Foley, Alabama- February 29, 2024 The Archery Shooters Association (ASA) proudly concludes the highly successful Hoyt/Easton Pro/AM, marking the commencement of the 2024 Delta McKenzie ASA Tour. With unprecedented participation and thrilling competitions, the event set remarkable benchmarks in archery history.
Recording-breaking numbers underscore the magnitude of this year’s Hoyt/Easton Pro/AM, as 2047 registered shooters from 51 states and 6 countries flocked to Foley, Alabama. The enthusiasm was palpable as nearly 700 participants kicked off the festivities at the Match Bowstrings Team Shoot, setting an energetic tone for the weekend.
Perfect blue skies and idyllic 70-degree weather welcomed archers to the Graham Creek Nature Preserve, providing an ideal backdrop for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday’s scoring rounds. As archers scattered across the vast preserve, the natural beauty of Foley served as an inspiring setting for their pursuits.
The highlight of the event was the electrifying Pro Pressure Point Shootdown at the Foley Sports Complex, where standing-room-only crowds witnessed heart-pounding action. A record-breaking 87,000 viewers tuned in live via YouTube, Sportsman Channel, and Facebook, with an additional 401,600 viewers engaging with post-event video content. The overwhelming support from fans underscores the growing popularity and reach of archery as a sport.
ASA, along with sponsors and manufacturers, paid over $400,000 in prize money and contingency awards.
The success of the Hoyt/Easton Pro/AM would not have been possible without the exceptional hospitality and support of the City of Foley. From the Foley Sports Commission to the dedicated staff at Graham Creek Nature Preserve, their unwavering dedication ensured a seamless and memorable experience for archers, families, staff, and sponsors alike.
