Join us for a great weekend of archery on August 19–20 and compete for multiple championships at the 2023 North Star Open and Voyageur Cup.
Total prize money of up to $7,000 is available for male and female podium finishers in the senior compound and recurve divisions. Payout is $1,000, $500, and $250 for the top finishers in each division.
Payout notes: At least three participants are required in a division to conduct head-to-head elimination matches. Payout for second place requires at least four participants. Payout for third place requires at least seven participants. Youth may shoot up and masters may shoot down for the elimination matches as long as they shoot the senior distances for qualification.
Pre-registration is required. The registration deadline is noon on August 14, 2023. There is no same-day registration for the weekend's events.
The event will take place at Elmcrest Park. The address is 16303 Quicksilver St NW in Ramsey, MN.
This is the fifth and final leg of the 2023 MAA 365 Archery Shooter of the Year competition. See themnaa.org/shooteroftheyear for more details.
The Saturday qualification round scores will determine the winners of the North Star Open. (Check out the schedule below to see whether you would shoot your qualification score in the morning or afternoon on Saturday.) The Sunday Voyageur Cup competition will be a head to head elimination bracket of the top 16 qualifiers seeded according to Saturday's qualification scores. This event is open to all and only requires a USA Archery membership (or temporary USA Archery membership via the NFAA; see the link below for more details).
