Wow, GREAT NEWS for you men & women self bow shooters.  Even though I've always had those two self bow classes at the HH Classic, The IBO has not, especially for the women.  But maybe in the future for both, in the meantime, here's a pretty good idea.

Levy Bryant with the IBO, has just let me know that there will be a men and women's self bow shoot down on Saturday afternoon, time yet to be announced.  There will also be some sort of 1st place prize, also yet to be determined.

NOW, you don't have to turn in any kind of score, JUST BRING YOUR SELF BOWS and you're in, EXCITING!!!

Am I correct in assuming "Men's senior traditional" allows recurves, and "Men's sr. wood arrows only" is for longbows?

Folks, as I mentioned earlier, the IBO is having a Men's & Women's Self Bow Shoot Down on Saturday afternoon.

The 1st Place shooters will be splitting $250.00 to start but Arvin Weaver has generously donated one of his outstanding self bows to be raffled off and the proceeds from the raffle will also be added to the $250.00.

NOW, will all that being said, there is a woman competitor, can really shoot, has informed Levy Bryant, that she can get as many as TWENTY WOMEN self bow shooters to compete.  Sh'e been trying to get the IBO to have a Women's Self Bow class in the IBO for years.

I know who she is and I must say the ball is in her court.  Let's show Levy that YOU CAN BRING IT GIRL, LOL.

Alright everybody, I've explained that the HH Classic is a multi round event with the highest score you turn in counts, no matter if it is your 1st round or your last.

NOW, I'm gonna try and explain a little about how the IBO rounds are to be shot.

There will be FIVE times that IBO shooters can go out to shoot 40 targets.

There will be two times on Friday and it will be shot gun starts:  First time will be 8:00am and 11:00am.  Saturday will be the same, 8:00am and 11:00am.

On Sunday you can start at 8:00am, but it will not be a shotgun start.

THIS IS IMPORTANT!!
As long as you get 40 targets shot, you are finished with the IBO round.  You can shoot all 40 on Friday same on Saturday, if you can get them in..

Or you can shoot 20 on Friday & 20 on Saturday. 

Or you can shoot 20 Targets on Friday or Saturday and finish your 20 targets on Sunday.  AS LONG AS YOU GET 40 TARGETS IN.

All other time can be spent shooting the Howard Hill Classic range if you'd like.  WHEW!!!

If you have any questions, please feel free to write here, email me or call me.

All IBO times are shotgun starts. You will be assigned a stake with your peers. Shotgun starts for the IBO are Friday & Saturday 8am & 11am, and Sunday 8am.
You must shoot 40 targets, however you get them in. I suggest shooting all 40, or 20 and 20. IBO course has A & B ranges made up of 20 targets each. It will be a weekend full of shooting our bows. Can't wait.

Here's a photo of one of Big Jim's beautiful longbows. 

Let me say again how generous Big Jim has been to me by donating for years one of his custom longbows to be raffled off at the Howard Hill Classic.
