The estimated economic impact of the weekend’s two events — the U.S. National Indoor Archery Championships and the JOAD National Indoor Archery Championships — is nearly $100,000, she said.

All of the events are free and open to the public.

Competition begins at 6 p.m. today, March 10, and runs through Sunday.
