Charles LTB is still around, the web site is down.
Right now not much going on club wish, but some of us plan on making a hunt at Tenses NWR on the MLK weekend in Jan.  We are also planing to have our North/South fun shoot in the spring at Mountain Bayou Boy Scout camp as we have been doing the last few years.

Here are the dates for the upcoming shoots for the LTB.  I will add more info as I get it, we are presently have the same discussion within the LTB that has happen in the BSBA (Bayou State Bowhunters Asso.) and that is, unless we can get more people willing to step up and assume leadership roles and volunteer to help we don't know how much longer the organization will continue.  The BSBA has shutdown effective 12/31/2011.

I don't want to see this happen to the LTB but we need help.  I am pushing for holding our shoots this year and see what happens but if thing don't change I don't see us continuing.

Don Jackson - President LTB


The dates set for this year are:

North vs South – 3/17-18

Sterling Harrell – 5/5-6

Don, I understand what you guys are going through. I was a BSBA Advisor and life member for many years, and helped set up and take down too many 3D shoots than I can remember. Send me some information and about shoot setups and volunteering for different activities. I don't mind helping out. Send info to my emial below. Sorry I missed the Tensas hunt.
Thanks

Site is up but the info. is not current. I never see or hear anything about LTB up this way. Other than emails that Mike sends. As far as I can tell there is only a handfull of traditional shooters in this area. Maybe it's just because I haven't been active in the regular shoots so I haven't seen the traditionalists. I'm in Bastrop, NE LA. Maybe I just need to try to promote it more myself. Any suggestions on what I could do to help promote our passion? I know for sure I need to get my membership current.Is there any kind of ID card or sticker or anything that has the logo on it for members. I know when I joined before I never saw anything as far as being a member.

Thanks Guys for any support you can help us with, sorry I hadn't got back here sooner but it been a wild week.
Michael Harbinson and I are working on the details for the upcoming shoots and I will post that info. soon and email each of you that need more.
Yes the info, on the web page is not updated, sense Phil Parker our Web master passed away we just have not had anyone to help us keep up with the site. Phil would email everyone and get pictures to post and write storys about our events and that kind of person in a very small organization like ours is not easly replaced.
The LTB has always been a small group with limited funding raised through our two major shoots each year. That money is used to keep us in targets and to help out the Boy Scouts who allow us to use their camp for our shoots.
Yes we have window stickers and some T shirts with our Logo, not sure what's instock right now, Michael has those and he can be contacted at 337-842-2033 or btarchery@centurylink.net. He will be bring them to the shoots with him.
A lot of groups are having trouble right now like the BSBA and are giving up.  If I had the answer to how to fix it I could quit my day job. Michael and I have talked about what can be done to keep the LTB alive, we have desided that we will try and hold the shoots and keep trying to find more folks that are willing to help this year and see what happens.
If you are not on his email list give him a call or email him and get on it as he sends out all LTB info by email.


As I said above I will post more info as I have it but the dates above are good and if the shoots happen and I think baring any problems with Michael or my schedules they will, we will set up targets on Friday afternoon and the shoots will be on Sat. and Sunday

OK folks it been decided that we are going to put all our efforts into the Sterling Harrell Memorial Shoot.  We feel we just don't have enough interest in the North/South Shoot and without the shooters it just would not be worth while for the LTB to hold the shoot.

So here's some of the details;

The 2012 Sterling Harrell Memorial will be held on May 5-6 again this year at the the Mountain Bayou Lake Boy Scout Scout Camp which is just north of Lake Chico State Park.  

We will set up targets on Friday starting around noon if anyone would like to help.
There are cabins at the Boy Scout Camp and the price, if like last year, should be about $10 per person, 4 per cabin, or $40 per night per cabin, let Michael know if you want a bed or cabin reserved.  There are about 8 cabins.  
Also there is parking for RVs without hook-ups at the BS Camp or there are full RV camping and cabins at the Lake Chico State Park.

Will add more info as the Sterling Harrell gets closer and Michael will be sending out a news letter to everyone who's on the email list.  If you would like to be added to that list let him know at 337-842-2033 or at btarchery@centurylink.net.

Hope to see everyone there.

I would like to thank everyone who came out this last weekend to the SH.  I think everyone had a great time.  
We had 98 paying shooters and with some great competition and some additional young people who were getting their feet into trad. archery.
The weather was a little on the warm side (some called it HOT) but it didn't stop anyone.  
Also I know all of us that ate supper Saturday night would like to thank Michael Harbinson for some wonderful fryed fish.
I would also like to THANK Everyone including a wonderful bunch of young people who help with the set-up and pulling the targets..It sure make things easier on everyone when theres plenty of help.

I will be trying to post the scores here as soon as I can for everyone to see.

Also it was desided at our meeting that the LTB will be continuing through this year for sure and since next year is our 20th Anniversary we are going to plan on doing our best to have something special for that anniversary.

Thanks Again to Everyone who came out to shoot and a Big Thanks to all the folks that jump in and helped.

Don Jackson
President LTB

Don, Thanks to you and the LTB for hosting a great shoot!   :bigsmyl:    It was my first time shooting wooden arrows and I think I found the right spine, but I didn't write the specs down. Could you PM me the specs. on those arrows?  Thanks very much!   :thumbsup:    :thumbsup:

Thanks Rod, I enjoyed it also and glad we had time to shoot together.
The arrows were 60/65 spine, 29" BOP with 125 gr. heads and they did fly well for you so good luck with venturing into the world of wood.
