RATS !!! <_<
I'm not gonna get there this year!! :(

Matt wants to play in the Family Classic golf tournament...which just happens to be in New Glasgow on the same days... :o

Maybe I'll be able to pop on by later in the afternoon as we should be in the first flight of golfers...

Too bad Bob, I would have liked to meet you.

All the targets have arrived for the shoot and thankfully some very generous folks donated some nice targets too {rineharts too :) }. The last truck load was delivered on Monday. The course is going to be awesome, or at least that is what everyone is saying that has seen terrain (they can all thank our grandfather for giving us such a beautiful piece of property).

They have some great prizes and draws too, I hear 2 rineharts are going to be going home with some lucky winners...

On a side note;
Since the BANG-UP will be the first official club shoot, the guys are going to do a fun shoot this weekend (Sunday morning, July 11) just to get some experience under their belt and to make the bang-up run more smooth. Obviously the lanes this weekend will be different than the bang-up lanes.

Are ya's gonna do that as a raffle, or door prizes, or shooting prizes, Mecheng?

I don't have all the details but I believe one target is a door prize and the other is a raffle. I never heard what the cost are yet but I would imagine that $30 would get a fellow a chance at the loot. Well unless you are like me and plan to throw at least $30 at raffle tickets :D I would love to have a 3-d target for the backyard.

I had to withdraw from the golf tournament I was scheduled to play (pinched nerve in my neck), s-o-o-o-o-o-o...

Day 1 went GREAT in my opinion!! :D
A big THANK YOU to the Northumberland Shooters for sponsoring the shoot...and man-o-man :o ...ya gotta see the course these guys and gals have !! :) There was nothing...nada...nuttin'... said about the course that didn't have the highest of praise.
It was my first time through a 3D course, and apparently I picked a good one to see.
That 3D shooting could become addictive...real quick !! :lol:

Today is Day 2 of the shoot, and I won't be shooting, but...Good Luck to all the shooters. B)

The shoot went over great. The weather held off and everyone seem to had a great time. I did not do shoot my best but I was there to have good time anyway. My son once out shot me a <_< gain and he rubbed that one in....

Bob, sorry I missed you, but I did get to meet John which was a pleasure (next time I go down in the woods I need to go count the trees, I think John was eyeing up a couple for his next long bow :) ) . You had a good score going too.

The course was excellent and lots of compliments were received. I never seen so many people smiling and laughing over smashing arrows before but it was quite a sight. No one felt bad about missing shots because everyone was doing it, plus everyone recognized that those dips, hills, hollows, and brooks made for an extremely challenging day when estimating yardage.

It was great to have a number of folks staying also, we had some great campfire conversations. Hopefully next time a few more will come.

Believe it or not, I can be shy !! :unsure: :rolleyes: :lol:

For my first time ever on a 3D course, I figured that 265 was pretty good...it sure helps when ya have six 10X's!!...and NO misses !! B)
I was mulling about the house all day Sunday, wishing I had stayed up for the day's shoot.

Thank y'all for the day... :)

Were you on green stakes or orange stakes? I ended up with the 5th best score of the weekend overall, 3 of the scores ahead of me were shooting green stakes. I'm very happy with 2nd on the orange, probably the best shooting I ever did.

I shot the green stakes...didn't want to push my luck too much !! :blink: :lol:
But I looked awful hard at the ram target in the afternoon when the orange was back by the bridge...I figured 43 yards...then decided...Nah...I'm a rookie !! :lol: :D

Fifth overall?...Second for the orange? :o
Wow!! :o Good shooting !! B)

43... excellent range, it was 43 from the green on the ram side of the bridge and it was 50 from the orange stake on the far side of the brook.
The big thing you missed was the wolf at target 1 and the fish, those targets caught a lot of people by surprise on day 2. The little feeding doe was set at 40 for day 2 also, and the shot was from a ground blind. Many wimped out chose not to shoot from the blind on the second go around.
I was a rookie too, this is my first year going to shoots and my fifth actual shoot. The weekend before I shot with some older guys who have decades experience, I learned a ton from just being around them, two of them help correct a small torque I would have about every 4 or 5 targets, they told me what I was doing and how to avoid it. Can't wait to thank them at the next shoot.

It was a fantastic shoot and Northumberland did a fine job - especially since it was the first shoot
they have put on. I'm hoping they go for it next year as well - fairly central and an excellent course !

Congrats to all that shot and the organizers !!!

I'll have a chat with Danny (I think the interest is there already), we can make a few small changes to the spot and maybe the old farm house will be gone by next year so we might have more room for campers.
