With three days of registration to go, more archers than ever before have registered to this year’s Vegas Shoot. More than 3830 shooters are on the entry list – and that’s above the previous high of 3816 set in 2020.
Competition starts this Friday, February 3 and runs until Sunday, February 5 at the South Point Hotel, Casino and Spa in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Archers from all 50 states of the USA will take to the line – plus a record 55 countries. (Two more than the previous high.)
“The Vegas Shoot is back to breaking records. We’re excited to host the biggest indoor archery festival ever – and edge ever closer to that magic number of 4000,” said Vegas Shoot President Bruce Cull.
“Our tournament attracts pros, amateurs, business, families and archers from across the globe. Having so many countries represented at the Vegas Shoot in 2023 is a huge accomplishment – and we’re so excited to make this the best event to date.”
The compound flights have the highest number of entries with more than 1200, followed by the recurve flights on nearly 400.
The compound open championship has about 250 registered shooters, who will compete for the main event winner’s check totaling $57,000 – to mark the 57th edition of the Vegas Shoot – the largest grand prize to date.
In total, archers stand to win a record $500,000 at this year’s tournament.
