Good luck this weekend down at Riverbottom Outdoors

I only shot two qualifiers this year, and didn’t qualify, after that family issues and work ate up my time and I haven’t been to a 3D shoot since, but best of luck to everyone, and remember to BE SAFE!

(I see a note in the forums that CBG is cancelling their shoot for this weekend due to a scheduling conflict on the property.)

Gainesville Archery Club – ASA Qualifier

We’ll be hosting Qualifier Sunday 5/15/16
registration 8:30-3:00
Guest class for those not qualifing

I haven’t shot much this year – I’ve been busy with my family (my daughter is 16 years old now), work, and life in general, to the point where archery took a back burner this season.  About a month ago though, one of the state qualifiers at Sweetwater just happened to fall on a day when it was perfect, not raining, good temperature, nothing going on at home, so I grabbed my gear and shot some foam.  I hadn’t even practiced in eight months, so I really went just for fun, but due to just about everybody who scored higher than myself having already qualified, I managed to get on the list for the states.

It was hot. Like ‘Holy Crap!’ hot.  And that was just when I got out of the truck at 7am.  By noon, when we finished up, I stopped at the first gas station on the way back to Doublasville and got two BIG sports drinks, and downed one in the four minutes it took to get to Gables.  I think I finished the other one in about fifteen minutes.

I still haven’t replaced the camera that was destroyed last fall at Joe Kurz WMA, but I did snap a few shots with my phone, towards the end of the day.  Overall, despite only having practiced a few times in the weeks since the qualifier, I was pretty happy with my score, I won’t win anything, but with five 12’s, that’s one of the better results I’ve had in a long time, and I got to meet and shoot with some great people.

This was a target towards the end of one of my courses – the sun was behind it, we couldn’t SEE anything on it, but the Senior Eagle I was shooting with made a GREAT shot, and the two adults (including myself) were pretty happy to have a neon-green aiming point on the target.
