46th Annual IBA Spring Banquet
March 2, 2013
featuring Matt Stutzman
The 2013 Spring Banquet is set for March 2, held again at Prairie Meadows Hotel. We’re back on the same weekend as the Iowa Deer Classic, so plan on coming out for a full weekend. Unfortunately, Wayne Carlton is unable to fulfill commitments as our guest speaker for the 2013 Spring Banquet. But fortunately, Matt Stutzman has agreed to fill the void.
Matt Stutzman - The Armless Archer
* A Foot Above the Competition *
Matt is an American athlete who competes in archery. He is a member of the 2012 US Paralympic Archery Team; and is currently the world record holder for the longest accurate shot in archery. Stutzman was born in Kansas City, Kansas; and currently lives in Fairfield, Iowa. Born without arms, he has learned to do most everything with his feet.
According to Matt, impossible is just a state of mind. His goal is to be the best archer in the world. While he brought home the Silver medal at this years’ 2012 London Paralympic Games, his goal is still to be the best in the world.
So plan on attending the 2013 Spring Banquet, and maybe you can pick up a few pointers that will improve your own shooting. More details will be coming in the Winter issue of Bowhunter and on the website.
*The Meadows ballroom is over 14,100 square feet, with a 3000 square foot stage equipped with audio visual capabilities and five screens. This area can be divided into five spaces to accomodate five different groups.
