Designed to reward archers who achieve top placements in competitions while using Altra Arrows, the Altra Arrows Contingency Program aligns perfectly with the IBO's mission to promote the sport of archery. By offering financial incentives or rewards, our contingency program encourages archers to participate in more events while showing off their Altra Arrows gear. This symbiotic relationship between archers, Altra Arrows, and the IBO not only elevates the competitive spirit but also fosters a closer community of enthusiasts, all while potentially increasing the visibility and sponsorship opportunities for IBO events. Integrating a contingency program with Altra Arrows offers a new dimension of motivation and recognition for archers, enhancing the prestige of competing under the IBO banner and Altra Arrow Brands, and ultimately enriching the sport's ecosystem.
