The Local Organizing Committee of the 10th African Archery Championship, the 2nd Africa Open International Tournament, Federation of African Archery, and Egyptian Archery Federation, have invited the african countries to participate in the 10th African Archery Championship, which will be held from 10-13 October 2014 in Luxor, Egypt. This event will also include the 2nd Africa Open International Tournament.
The city of Luxor:
Luxor is a city in Upper (southern) Egypt and the capital of Luxor Governorate. The population numbers 487,896 (2010 estimate) with an area of approximately 416 square kilometres. As the site of the Ancient Egyptian city of Thebes, Luxor has frequently been characterized as the "world's greatest open air museum", as the ruins of the Temple complexes at Karnak and Luxor stand within the modern city. Immediately opposite, across the River Nile, lie the monuments, temples and tombs on the West Bank Necropolis, which include the Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens. Thousands of tourists from all around the world arrive annually to visit these monuments, contributing a large part towards the economy for the modern city.The economy of Luxor, like that of many other Egyptian cities, is heavily dependent upon tourism. Large
numbers of people also work in agriculture, particularly sugarcane. To make up for shortfalls of income, many cultivate their own food. Goat's cheese, pigeons, subsidized and home-baked bread and home-grown tomatoes are commonplace among the majority of its residents.
The practice, competition and final venues are all located at the Maritim Jolie Ville hotel courts.
