  1. On Top at the First Dakota Classic

    YANKTON, South Dakota — The First Dakota Classic attracted archers from around the globe to come compete at the NFAA headquarters. Some archers trekked through snow and ice in an unexpected April storm. The Classic holds a unique format with the qualification round consisting of 4 ends of 5 arrows shot at 3 distances, beginning with the closest distance. After each archer is placed in their respective brackets, they will go head-to-head shooting 3 ends of 5 arrows — if a tie occurs, a one arrow shoot-off will be forced.

    Steve Anderson climbed his way through head-to-head matches winning the First Dakota Classic. NFAA hosts a special 3 Star Tour $10,000 Shoot-off, eligible to those who competed at The Vegas Shoot, NFAA Indoor Nationals and the First Dakota Classic. Paul Tedford walked away with full pockets.
