Title: Augusta Archers Trad shoot
Post by: Tom on May 06, 2008, 09:07:00 PM
Hope this is not premature but heard tonight that there will be a 2nd annual trad shoot  at Augusta Archers in Staunton, Va.
 Last year a handful of shooters showed up but considering the weather I believe that a good time was had by all.There is a camping area and Dennis did a fine job on setting the 3d ranges.
 Know gas prices are high but maybe carpools can work for some. Would like to meet and greet some of you before the main events at STAR and ATAR shoots.
 Dennis, didn't want to step on toes but Pat asked if anything was mentioned here so I started it.

Adam,
 I ran in last night and like a fool left out dates-might help, huh? 05/31 & 06/01.

That sounds possible actualy, Tom. How is the camping?
Title: Re: Augusta Archers Trad shoot
Post by: Tom on May 10, 2008, 07:33:00 AM
There is an area for camping, Adam. Last year there weren't many shooters so am trying to get more people to shoot , nice club and if people don't show its kind of difficult to expect clubs to sponsor trad only shoots.
 Would like to see you there.

Looks like I am off that weekend.  What are the start times, rules and camping details? Sounds like fun.
Title: Re: Augusta Archers Trad shoot
Post by: Tom on May 14, 2008, 05:52:00 PM
Ron,
 Registration is usually 8 am-1 pm around here, camping will be first come but is available. There will be food available during the day from the clubhouse.
 If you and Adam decide to make the trip I may have to stay over Sat. evening!
 Rules are??? no broadheads is all I know for the course-no wheels of course also.

Title: Re: Augusta Archers Trad shoot
Post by: UK Bowman on May 14, 2008, 09:49:00 PM
Me too, barring unforseen events. I guess I will leave the BH's at home.

Coming from Richmond: head west to 81 north,quick first exit- off 64- (Rt. 250 east). Believe at the third light-look for ASPCA sign-make a right, go under train tressel and look for road on the right, will have ASPCA and archery sign. Road splits, stay left and follow uphill to end.

I think I will try to make it to tom. how would you come from fredericksburg.
Title: Re: Augusta Archers Trad shoot
Post by: Tom on May 22, 2008, 05:43:00 AM
Chris,
 Probably the quickest way is 64w-81n.Scenic way would be 29s-33w-81s. The important thing is the Rt 250 east out of Staunton part.
 Will have my cell with me so I should be able to guide anyone in:(540)-421-4497.
Title: Re: Augusta Archers Trad shoot
Post by: Tom on May 22, 2008, 07:34:00 PM
Chris,
 Just about 4 posts up you will see directions from Richmond area, will be fastest for you. Other alternative is 29S to 33W to 81S to the 250E exit at Staunton.
 Hope to see you there.

 You know I'll eat whatever you want to cook, what else can people bring-pot luck works.

 Looking forward to seeing you and tearing up arrows in my diminshed capacity.

Excellent A.S., Looking forward to getting snuffed by you again, always a pleasure to see you shoot. Must be tough deciding what bow to shoot, eh?
 I'll roll in early Sat. and spend the night, should be a better turnout than last year-now if only the weather holds.

Title: Re: Augusta Archers Trad shoot
Post by: BigRonHuntAlot on May 24, 2008, 10:14:00 AM

I'm just seeing this.  I missed Baltimore due to dog issues, so I am taking this shoot into serious consideration.  

Are there any shower facilities there?
Title: Re: Augusta Archers Trad shoot
Post by: A.S. on May 27, 2008, 12:35:00 PM
Martha, yes they have showers and a very nice indoor range in case we get rained out one day like we did last year. We were able to bring in some 3D targets and shoot all day!
Title: Re: Augusta Archers Trad shoot
Post by: MarthaK on May 27, 2008, 01:11:00 PM
Sweet! Thanks.
Title: Re: Augusta Archers Trad shoot

2hats,
 Don't be scaring folks now, and leave the banjos at home,please. Looks like the weather might be iffy on Sat. but it didn't dampen enthusiam last year. Besides, you know how accurate the weather forecasts are anyway.
Title: Re: Augusta Archers Trad shoot
Post by: A.S. on May 29, 2008, 10:41:00 AM

Tom,

I wish you guys the best of luck with your shoot. Looks like the weather is going to be much improved over last year's.  I am stuck at my daughter's dance recital all day on Sat. and have to work on Sun. so will not be able to attend but I have sent out a couple of notices to all of our local guys so hopefully several of them will ride up to play with you guys. See ya at the S.T.A.R. in a couple of weeks if you can come.
