Yankton hosting weekend archery tournaments

Posted: Updated:

YANKTON, S.D. (AP) - Yankton is hosting nearly 800 archers from around the country this weekend for a pair of tournaments.

The National Field Archery Association Unmarked 3D Championship and First Dakota Bank Classic began Saturday at the Easton Yankton Archery Complex.

Lifelong archer Eric Moore has seen the Yankton community grow from being simply an activity for those interested in the sport into a national hub. The 45 year old Yankton resident says getting younger kids involved is important, and more are starting to sign up for tournaments and do really well.

The tournaments allow the NFAA to show off a new 29,500-square-foot addition to the complex.
