Archers from across the country will meet at Camp Minden Thursday, April 21
through Sunday, April 24 for the 2022 McKenzie Archery Shooters Association
Easton/Hoyt Pro/Am Tour, an event that will kick off a 10-year run at the 15,000
acre facility west of Minden.

Organizers expect the event will bring in more than 2,000 competitors along with
friends, family, manufacturers and staff, plus an anticipated $25 million in
economic impact over the course of the 10-year run.

Hosts for the event will be the Shreveport-Bossier Sports Commission and the
Webster Parish Convention and Visitors Commission, in partnership with the
Louisiana Office of Tourism and City of Bossier City.

A cooperative project by the Louisiana National Guard, Caddo Parish
Commission, Bossier Parish Police Jury, and the Webster Parish Police Jury
provided a 30-plus acre parking area/tournament village for the event, an area that
will also be utilized as a staging center for the Louisiana National Guard for
emergency response.

“We’re excited to know we’re getting something that is going to be so great for our
area, and it’s good for ten years,” said Bob Brotherton, Bossier Parish Police Jury
member for District 1, and member of the Shreveport-Bossier Sports Commission
Board.

“A lot of time and energy went into getting this event, and it’s the result of great
partnerships between Bossier and Webster parishes, the National Guard, the Sports
Commission and others who helped. I can’t imagine anyone not wanting to be a
part of this. It’s good for our economy and will showcase our area nationally,”
Brotherton said.

“The Archery Shooters Association has been conducting national 3-D Pro/Am
archery events for over 25 years,” said Michael Tyrell, President of the Archery
Shooters Association, LLC. “We have had the pleasure of dealing with many fine
host cities and are confident that our decision to come here is a solid business
decision.”

Competition Archery Media (“CAM”) provides “live” coverage on the national
cable The Sportsman Channel to showcase the Pro Pressure Point Shoot Down
which will be held at the Bossier Civic Center Saturday, April 23 at 4 p.m., in
partnership with the City of Bossier City.

CAM also will provide full media coverage of the ASA Pro/Am Tour weekend on
Facebook or YouTube under “Competition Archery Media.”
