MADISON, Miss. – September 8, 2022 – Gold Tip®, an industry leader in carbon arrows and bolts, along with Bee Stinger™, maker of the most advanced line of stabilizers and side bars for bowhunting and target archery, congratulates team archers for their strong finishes at the NFAA First Dakota Classic and NFAA Outdoor Target Nationals. Team members Tim Gillingham and Kyle Douglas captured multiple top place finishes during the two matches, with Gillingham receiving additional honors as “Shooter of the Year” in the Senior Pro division.
The 2022 NFAA First Dakota Classic and the 2022 NFAA Outdoor Target Nationals both took place August 26-28 in Yankton, South Dakota. At the Dakota Classic, Gold Tip and Bee Stinger archer Kyle Douglas took second place in the Men’s Pro division. After battling for the lead all-day, the winner was decided in a head-to-head shoot-off where one arrow, closest to the center decided the victor. Douglas was edged out of the first place spot by a mere 1/16” of an inch.
Coming off recent victories at the NFAA Field Nationals and ASA Classic Championship, Gold Tip and Bee Stinger Staff Manager Tim Gillingham also took home the Shooter of the Year title as well as finished third in the Senior Pro.
At the NFAA Outdoor Target Nationals, Gillingham set a Senior Pro national record of 596 out of 600 on day one and cruised to a first-place finish on day two. Meanwhile, Kyle Douglas fought his way to a tie for second place and won the single arrow shoot-off for his second podium finish during the weekend.
