Well the big Archery Shoot in the North State ended Sunday. After 3 days of great weather good food and great people, I realize i need to shoot more......Didn't stay Sunday to see who won the whole thing,But 1 thing i do know for sure it wasn't me.It was put together very well again and they had a Huey Helicopter on display in honor of our Troops and Veterans. A group of Vet's take donations to fund the restoration of this work horse of a helicopter. The guy shooting with me and my son is a Vietnam Vet. he saw a lot of battle action over there. he is one of the great people i have met over the years.So, there's not much more to say here i'm gonna post a couple pics of Curt,Colby and myself and some of the Huey.Posted ImagePosted ImagehttpPosted Image

Sorry i just assumed that anyone into archery would have known about the shoot.Its a 3 day event and is the second largest archery tournament in the United States. Its held on the 1st weekend in May every year. It is a 70 target shoot at 2 arrows per target with a total of 1540 points available.There are pro shooters from all over the world and sponsors have their booths set up displaying all the latest Archery equip. just a bunch of good stuff going on.i shot a 1390 and Curt shot a 1394. My best was 1464 back in 2007.Fridays tally of shooters was just a bit over 2000. I have shot with people from Europe and Australia. It is a pretty big event and has a very broad participants list.There is another local shoot im going to be in up in Mt. Shasta on July 17-18th at the Shasta Mtn Archers range.

Hey Thumper, did you know about the shoot? I'm probably the odd man out because I don't keep up on archery.

When I shot the World Championships and the Nationals in 1988 in Darrington Washington it was really fun,,, Those Aussies really liked to party after the shoot. Looks like a great time was had by all !!
