On Sunday, July 21st, 47 archers, parents, siblings, coaches, and National Archery in the Schools program officials gathered at the Atlanta and Dulles international airports. Our destination was Johannesburg, South Africa.

The primary purpose of our trip was to join all-star NASP archery teams from Namibia and South Africa in a celebration of competition among the world’s best NASP® student archers. These all-stars – including Trigg County’s Jake MacNab and Clay Stevens – were named at their respective national NASP archery tournaments in May.

A secondary focus of this adventure was to provide opportunity for the young archers to serve others. Specifically, urban and rural African youth were invited to receive introductory archery instruction from the all-stars.

All but one of the archers made their connection from their home through Atlanta or Dulles to Johannesburg. The ‘one’ was MacNab and his mother Tracy. Storms delayed them at the Nashville airport and Delta re-routed them through Amsterdam, Netherlands and Paris, France to join our group a few hours late in South Africa.
