Who we are... & what we do...

The Alaska State Archery Association (ASAA) is a not for profit, volunteer organization that supports all things archery at the local, state and the national level. Our mission is to foster, expand, and perpetuate the practices of archery throughout the state of Alaska while encouraging a spirit of good fellowship among all archers within the state.

Meet the Executive Board of Directors 

Evan Cotten

Term 2020
Shooting Archery since 2014.  Loves tuning, testing and shooting bow. He is always working to improve his, his daughters and everyone else's archery around him. Favorite colors are purple and black and enjoys long walks on the Archery range.

John Zell

Vice President
Term 2019
International man of mystery, John hits what he aims for.  Boone & Crockett and Pope and Young record holder, he has proven he is willing to put in the work for the reward.  Also he takes having his arrow being  Robin Hooded better than anyone I have ever seen.

Rick Tuohy "2E"

Term 2019
Rick became addicted to stick and string in the Spring of 2015.
Loves spending time on the range with friends and family, and trying to out shoot Tom!!! Also his favorite ice cream is which ever one he is eating.

Cindy Tuohy

Term 2020
Avid Photographer, you'll never find Cindy at the Archery Range with a Bow. Nevertheless, she will hide in the bushes to get that perfect shot on you, with her camera.  Always supportive wife to Rick and a heck of a pie maker.

Justin Befort

Tournament Director
Term 2020
“Konnichiwa” fun fact, not only is Justin well versed in many things Archery he is also fairly fuent in Japanese.  When not at the Archery Range he most likely can be found at a car meet up.  Does anyone know how to say Rocket in Japanese?

Bernie Punzalan

NFAA State Director
Term 2020
Known for changing his strings the day of a tournament and still win, Bernie's Archery is on target.  If he is not tweaking his equipment  he is making sure everyone's paperwork is in order for the next tournament.
Glad to have him on our team!

Julie Gagnebin

Webmaster / Social Media Coordinator Assistant
Julie, says often "I am just happy to be here!" Known for being allergic to just about everything except Archery, she has no anxiety about hitting that X.  Her favorite colors can often be found in her hair.  Starting out as a fairly new shooter she has already racked up a pretty impressive archery resume. We know great things are coming her way!
