Winter Classic

Welcome to our 4th annual Winter Classic event.

Please note that the Rcherz registration site is not working correctly. We will be moving to a new platform for next year.

  • It is unable to accept payments, so we will collect registration fee’s on the day of the event.
  • The system will also not allow you to select Universal gender. We will move you into that category. 
  • If you are interested in the Money Open Division, it is also not selectable. Register for Senior and then send us a quick text at 586-770-1859 to let us know who you are and that you want to be in the open class. We can change it on the admin side.
  • If you plan to walk in, you must already have an Rcherz profile created. Their system seems very broken this year and we are unable to create a profile for you this year.

Please understand that we are just as frustrated with the system this year as you are and are already testing on other platforms for next year. 

Thanksgiving Weekend November 2018.

We believe that this is the event to kick off the indoor archery season.

Our genderless format has been a huge success! In 2017, female archers placed on the podium in 11 of the 15 categories they participated in. Winning 7 of them!

The Winter Classic by Rising Phoenix features  nineteen Vegas style genderless shooting categories including a Money Open class with an 100% payback and a minimum prize pool of a $1,000 – guarantee.

We will be shooting a 660 round format where the X counts as an 11 – Lancaster style.

Follow along at home or anywhere as this event features real time LIVE scoring!

Our coveted custom Crystal Trophies for the winners and new Acrylic Medals for 2nd and 3rd place are display worthy awards.
