Gold Tip and Bee Stinger's Conner Sears Wins Amateur Division
AMERICAN FORK, Utah – May 10, 2017 – Gold Tip pro shooter Kris Schaff won the National Field Archery Association (NFAA) Dakota Classic in Yankton, South Dakota, shooting Gold Tip's micro-diameter Platinum Pierce arrows.
The NFAA Dakota Classic is an indoor distance tournament held at the NFAA headquarters. It features a qualification round, followed by head-to-head eliminations. Targets are shot at three distances—40, 50 and 60 yards. Schaff beat out an incredibly stout field of shooters, including several World Champions, to take the top spot.
Gold Tip shooter Conner Sears won the Amateur division, which came on the heels of his win a couple weeks ago at the Archery Shooters Association Pro/Am in Paris, Texas. Sears was also shooting Platinum Pierce shafts and was fully outfitted with Bee Stinger stabilizers.
Another notable achievement for Team Gold Tip was a near perfect qualification round by Gold Tip staff manager Tim Gillingham. He missed only one 10-ring in qualifying using one of Gold Tips most popular hunting shafts, the XT Hunter. Additionally, Senior Pro Benton Christensen had a third place finish with his Platinum Pierce shafts after winning the NFAA Indoor Nationals in March.
