Here is a short note letting you know about the August Archery Shoot
We had 18 participant s this month. We had 12 shooters in the Hunter Class which seems to be the bigger class for us. We have changed the class as far as sights go. If you hunt with a single pin, HHA, Tru-glo, etc than you can shoot in the Hunter class. In the Hunter class the distances will be from 12 yrds. – 32 yrds with most being somewhere in between. Shooting the 3-D course is a great way to learn how to judge distances. Come on out, judge the distance, shoot the target, and than check it with a rangefinder if you choose. Or you can bring your rangefinder and check distances before you shoot if you wish. If you decide to do that, than please don’t turn your score in for the daily competition but turn it in for the prizes we give out from some of our Sponsors. We are changing the course each shoot and trying to make it fun and challenging at the same time. We had three probationary members show up to help which was great to see. Ron Gaw, Mark Belcher and Corey Faupel came and sure made it easier to run the shoot.
We will be having a Hunting swap meet at the next shoot, Sept. 6th. Anyone wanting to sell/swap something hunting related bring it to the shoot (along with your bow) and have it priced along with your name and phone number on it and we will try and sell it for you. We will not negotiate prices. That is why if you aren’t there they can call you if interested. I don’t think pistols should be there so if you have one either take a picture of it and/or have a description of it and we will have a board we will post it on. That also is for bigger items such as a boat, tent, reloading items, anything that is either to big or to much trouble to bring in the building.
Results from the shoot are;
1) Dave Eddings 269
2) Mike Day 243
3) Rob Hendricks 248
1) Joey Brian 275
2) Larry Brian 248
3) Barry Stapelton 228
1) Tim Eisman 121
(It should be noted that Tim only shot the first 15 targets)
We had three gift certificates donated by Scubachs that we gave out in a drawing from everyone who turned their scores in after the shoot. The winners were;
1) Rob Hendricks
2) Larry Brian
3) Barry Stapleton
They will be able to pick up their certificates at the next shoot.
We had three members shoot in August. Tim Eisman, Art Guzowski, and Breck Stringer. Thanks for the support. Lets see some more of the members out for the shoots.
