We extend to the Arizona community an open invitation to help make the 2012 AAE Arizona Cup, the best it can be.
Some of the highlights of the 23rd edition of the AAE Arizona Cup include:

Last year, over 260 archers ranging from new target archery youths to world class champions and Olympians came from around the world.
The tournament takes place with the generous help of the at-large and Arizona Archery Community volunteers. Please considered yourself invited and encouraged to help. There are many jobs to accomplish.
To volunteer, show up with comfortable clothing including comfortable shoes, a hat and gloves and a desire to help the archers do what they do. On tournament days, dress smartly to represent the best Arizona has to offer.
