A Shooting Stimulus From The International Bowhunting Organization
Vermillion, OH – -(AmmoLand.com)- In consideration of the hardships some of its members may be experiencing as a result of the current tough economic times, the International Bowhunting Organization’s Board of Directors this week agreed to a restructuring of the entry fee schedule for the remaining 2009 IBO shooting events.
As a result, entry fees for all IBO Shooter of the Year (SOY) division at the amateur level will be $37 for the remaining IBO Southern Triple Crown events and the forthcoming IBO National Championship Triple Crown competitions.
Entry fees for all youth classes will be $35, Cub class will be $20 and Physically Challenged will be $25.
With the decrease of entry fees for the amateur classes to match those for the Hunter Division, cash purse participation with be strictly voluntary, with a contribution of $15 per competitor. There will be a 100-percent purse payback.
These changes do not affect the Semi-Pro or Professional Class entry fees or purses.
In addition, there will be no changes in the fee structure or payback schedule for the IBO World Championship.
“We hope this restructuring will help ease the burden felt by many of our devoted IBO shooters,” said IBO President Ken Watkins. “It is our intent to do everything we can to keep increasing participation and we know my shooters are feeling a financial pinch.”
The IBO Board will revisit the entry fee structure at it fall meeting.
