Mississippi Traditional Archery Association
May 6-7, 2006
The Mississippi Traditional Archery Association is part of the Mississippi Bow Hunters. With over 1300 members involved in the total organization, the Traditional Archery Chapter was founded eight years ago and has over 300 members. Since then, the Lofton Classic has been held at Grenada Lake for the traditional bow hunters.
Last year, 750 people competed in the two day festival from states such as Kansas and Ohio as well as the surrounding states. The Lofton Classic is a family oriented event, so with each entrant, usually comes two family members. Some families even camp out in the areas surrounding the event and view the competition, while most choose to stay in area motels. Entertainment and food is provided on Saturday evening. In addition to participants, around 35 exhibitors participated last year also.
Past participants have enjoyed the competition very much and hope to keep the event in Grenada. Melvin Tingle from Jackson (PBS) and Mid-South Outdoors (PBS) have filmed the event in the past.
I've been to this event. It is all they advertise it to be and more. My advice is DONT MISS IT!!!
