A trad shoot on 9-10-11?

That's a long way away, but maybe I can at least remember the date.

You know I didn't think of it like that but it does have a good ring to it doesn't it.  :)

I just checked... it's only 99 miles one way!  Only 2 hours, 7 minutes.  

By my math caculations (WITH THE COST OF GAS IN SEPTEMBER... carry the 1, and divided by 4 people in the vehicle, and the westerly wind pushing the Chevy Uplander)... well, that means (again, by thinking of September's gas prices)... it's only $982.00 per person to make the drive up and back).

Looks like 50 miles for me.  Anyone want to carpool from up north?  Kathy?

The novelty shoots that I'm thinking of:

Long shot at one of the 3D targets.
Jug shoot.
Maybe a CD shoot. or Clay Pigeon shoot


All Novelty shoots will be $1.00 per 1-2 arrows cept the Jug shoot & Clay Pigeons which will be $5.00 to participate with 50/50 pay back to the winner of each event.

The Long Shot is self explanatory.

The Jug Shoot is something I participated in last year at the St. Judes shoot in Augusta Archers.
2 1 gallon milk jugs suspended by rope & pulleys, 2 participants per end.
Whoever empties the jug first & causes opponents jug to hit the ground wins the round.

The CD Shoot is something I've started last year from an idea when I participated in indoor shooting with a compound.
A regular CD "junk or otherwise" suspended by fishing line in front of a target bale at roughly 20 yards distance.
Object of the game is to hit the center hole without touching the CD.
I may not do this one because it’s really geared for sight shooters with training wheels but who knows.

The Clay Pigeons Something I'm borrowing from Sherwood Archers "hope they don't mind."
Hang 3 clay pigeons & the object is to eliminate all 3 pigeons with 3 shots.
I know I had a blast participating in this, & if there is enough request I may bring this one out.

Well there you have it ladies & gents, my list of Novelty Shoots for this event, I will have at least 2 of these available.

Please let me know what y'all think so I can make sure I have my ducks in a row for this.
