SALT LAKE CITY – Hoyt is excited to announce that world-renown recurve archer and instinctive trick shooter Frank “Aspirin Buster” Addington, Jr. has joined Hoyt’s Pro Staff. A household name at archery exhibitions for over two decades, Addington has entertained packed houses, politicians, celebrities and dignitaries with his instinctive trick shooting and unbelievable accuracy. This year marks his 25th year on stage, and he’ll now be delivering his pro-archery, pro-family message and delighting audiences with the latest Hoyt recurve gear.
Addington and his Hoyt travel across North America, performing well over 100 exhibitions annually at a number of archery shows and other venues. He’s famous for a long list of unbelievable trick shots, including three baby aspirins at once – behind his back. Another of his amazing feats is hitting a mustard seed in mid-air. His show promotes archery and families spending time together outdoors. “When people come to my show, I want them to have fun and be entertained, to get an intense interest in archery, and to listen to my message about families spending more time together outdoors,” Addington said. “I tell my audiences that a video game, cable TV, or a computer game won’t take the place of a day spent outdoors with their families.”
Addington’s relationship with Hoyt goes back several decades, as he and his family were personal friends of Earl and Anne Hoyt. “Hoyt has been very good to me over the years and my archery career has opened doors I never would have dreamed about,” he said.
Hoyt is proud to have such a well-respected, talented professional represent the Hoyt name. To learn more about Frank Addington, Jr. – and to see his schedule of 2010 appearances and exhibitions – visit his Website at www.frankaddingtonjr.com.
