Here's a couple of photos, the DAS Bow and the two bows from Bear Archery.  I'll try and post photos of the other bows when I get them.

Folks, for those IBO shooters that have never been to Tannehill State Park, the primitive camping is almost unlimited.

Alright folks, the IBO Mid America / Howard Hill Classic T-Shirts are now being designed.  I haven't seen the final images, but so far I AM VERY EXCITED!!

Let me also add, there will only be a limited number of shirts available because they will be dated.

NOW, an important question, do we want a few long sleeve shirts so we can wear these shirts on cooler weather.

WE NEED SOME INPUT FOLKS!!!

Folks, I walked the area I'll be putting out targets for the Howard Hill Classic Range.  for you IBO shooters that have never been to Tannehill, I truly believe you will definitely have a blast shooting this course after or even before to get ya limbered up for your IBO ranges.

I have no doubt the brand new Rinehart targets are gonna look awesome on this course.

I'M GETTING PUMPED!!!

Spoke Shana & Levy last night, two IBO reps and I must say, we're all getting very excited about this DUAL EVENT.

The Shoot-Downs alone should be a hoot.

The one I'm most interested is the IBO's "Last Man Standing" event.

I, myself, am not sure how it works but what little was explained to me was that all participants are welcome to participate and will have a blast.

Men & Women can compete in this, and you men better watch out, there's some pretty awesome women out there you'll be competing against.

By the way, you don't have to join the IBO to come to the HH Classic & IBO Mid America.

Folks, let's talk Self Bows for you SELF BOW COMPETITORS..

For competition purposes, the definition of SELF BOW will be a bow made from ONE piece of wood with no performance enhancements on the bow such as a bow backed with bamboo, leather, etc.

If you have any questions regarding this, please contact me.

Folks, over the next two months, there are still some outstanding events coming up.

In less than two weeks, the Kentucky TradFest in Harrodsburg, KY, a great shoot for competition or just for fun event . Also, lots of Vendors.

Then, you certainly don't want to miss the Twin Oaks Classic in Clarksville, TN.  One of the largest in the south and one of the best shoots in the Country IMO. Again, lots of Vendors.

When finished having great times at these events, catch your breath and make your traveling plans for a RARE DUAL EVENT, in one location.  The HOWARD HILL CLASSIC & IBO MID AMERICA held at beautiful Tannehill State Park in McCalla, AL.  Lots of Vendor will be here as well

Alright, for you IBO shoots, we're laying out, what I think will be a great course for you.  You'll have two chances to shoot both ranges on Friday or Saturday, or one Friday then Saturday.  OR, if you don't get here until Saturday, you have Sunday to get your second round in, BUT, even getting here on Friday, you can also wait until Sunday to shoot your second round.

With all that said, it gives everyone plenty go time to shoot the Howard Hill course.

OK, my wife says I'm horrible a giving driving directions, let me see if I can make your experience shooting the IBO/HH Classic easy than I do for driving, LOL.

First, you don't have to join the IBO to shoot the IBO Mid America.

The IBO has two 20 target ranges, Course A & Course B.  If you shoot in the IBO competition, you must shoot BOTH COURSES, 40 target total for the IBO competition.  The cost is $30.00.

You have 5 different times you can do this.  On Friday, the times are 8:00 AM and 12:00 Noon.  On Saturday, the times are 8:00 AM and 12:00 Noon.  On Sunday, only at 8:00 AM.  All times are a shot gun start.

As long as you shoot both courses, it doesn't matter the times YOU choose.

The Howard Hill Classic has 25 targets and the Course opens at 7:00 AM Friday, Saturday & Sunday.  If you can only shoot one day, there is an all day fee of $25.00 and you can shoot as many rounds as you can get in.  There are special weekend rates for Singles & Families.  Fee's for a Single weekend rate are $35.00 and Family rates are $60.00 for a family up to four, living at home.  These rates entitle you to shoot as many rounds as you can get in.  FOLKS the HH Classic is a multi-round shoot with you highest score you shoot over the course of the weekend counting for your competition.

NOW, if you like to compete with multiple bows, you only have to pay an extra $20.00 per bow, and you can also shoot the different bow as much as you want.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me by phone or email.

Let me remind everyone, not only will there be Tim's bow from Acadian Woods but Big Jim's Bow Co., 3Rivers Archery and Bear Archery (two bows) have also donated bows to be raffled off for the Boy Scout Camp.

Also a reminder, THERE WILL ONLY BE A LIMITED NUMBER OF CHANCES FOR EACH OF THESE OUTSTANDING BOWS.

Let us also not forget Arvin Weaver bow to be raffled off for the Self Bow Shoot-Down.  I'm not sure how the IBO will be raffling off this bow.

Folks, there are some good traditional archery events still coming up before the Howard Hill Classic / IBO Mid America dual event.

In two days the Alabama Society of Traditional Bowmen' "Children's Hospital Benefit at Brierfield State Park here in Alabama.  This is a good event and raises money for a GREAT cause.

Then, the first weekend in May, 3, 4 & 5, the Twin Oaks Classic in Clarksville, TN.  This event is a can't miss event.  Not only is this a great event but you can also build that Self Bow you've always wanted (more on that in minute).

On Memorial Day weekend, May 25 & 26, is the Texas Longbow Championship.  And for those of that want to REALLY show your skills with a Howard Hill style longbow, THAT'S where you want to be.

NOW, on to the HH Classic / IBO Mid America, May 31, June 1 & 2 at Tannehill State Park in McCalla, AL.   Folks, we have so much going on, you don't want to sleep in, rest when ya get home, LOL.

For those of you that built your Self Bow at the Twin Oaks Classic, don't forget to bring 'em for the Men & Women's Self Bow Shoot-Down.
