WTA State shoot
« on: July 27, 2010, 07:08:00 AM »
Being a newbie to traditional, decided to attend the state shoot this weekend. It was a blast. Met some friends and made some new ones. A great bunch of people. To the group from Wis Rapids, thanks for letting me shoot with you. See you again next year. Will be ready for the alligator next year.

Any update on what the qualifying scores were, how many shooters and who won the Sunday shoot? I had a 450 and my buddy had a 445. I don't shoot the competition but always like to see where I would sit amongst the qualifiers.

I had to go home Saturday so I missed all that excitement.

Found out from Sue TerMaat that Russ Johnson came in first, Austin TerMaat second in the mens division.

Like Bill said, had to leave Saturday due to other commitments on Sunday, but super shoot and kudos to all who made it happen.

Also had a good time and don't ever let Orion(Jerry Karbon) tell you he's having a bad shooting day. He nailed that gator twice in his two rounds.

Bill, You would have qualified easily. The top qualifier was a 490, and while I don't know what the final qualifying score was, it was quite a bit lower. I spent two days there, and thought it was a really nice facility for a shoot. Well run, lots of room for camping and ample woods for the course.

Congratulations to both Russ and Austin. Sounds like a replay of last years top two with Russ taking it this year (Austin won last year).

Anyone know how the ladies shoot off went?

I agree on the course and facility. Very nice place for a shoot. I enjoy the course and set-up every time I shoot at Sparta. The WTA also did a great job. Makes me glad to be a member.

Thanks,
Bill

In the ladies division, I believe Sue TerMaat beat Pam Prahl.
   I don't know the young mans name, but the 15 year old that won the youth division could compete with the adults. He'll be a contender whenever he wants to move up.

The young mans name was Mac. Good shot. You could tell he knows what he is doing. He was very methodical setting up his shots. Wish I could remember his last name.

Glad everyone had a good time. I spoke with a guy at the Sparta club. He told me they wanted the state shoot in the hopes of drawing shooters that would not ordinarily come there. They went out of their way to show people a good time. There was two novelty shoots that were free. And the one they charged a buck for three arrows (gator) was 100% pay out. The chicken dinner was good too.

The WTA picked up a number of new members as well. We hope to them on a regular basis in the future.

Thanks, I should have remembered that. I was doing all the scoring for him in the shoot off.

Hey guys, when is your 2011 shoot and where? Do you have to be a WTA member to shoot? Is so, how much is a membership? Would like to plan a trip across the lake to shoot with you guys, especially Tony Carpenter!

Owlbait, I smell trouble brewing. But it is at Tony's expense so what the heck.

Our state shoot is Aug. 6 and 7 at Ojibwa Archers in New Berlin. That is just west of Milwaukee. You need to be a member to shoot the championship round. Tony says save your money, you wouldn't win anyway but if you would any how that would cost $25 to belong to the best state tradition organization in the country. There is free camping at the club and on Sat. I believe they will have their famous pig roast. This is well worth the trip even if Tony splits every arrow you might be lucky enough to get in the ten ring.

My only goal would to beat Tony on his home grounds and MAYBE a couple of his buddies. I'm not sure if I need a sponsor to join, if so I may be in trouble. I hear and read only great things about the WTA so I would be proud to join if they would have me. I will try to save up for a cross lake trip in August! Thanks Greg.

No sponsor needed Mike. We have other out of state members and always welcome more. Our magazine, the "Stump Shooter" is worth the price of membership right there. Let me know if you are coming or want to make a longer stay out of it. I am in the Milwaukee area and you can stay here. For the shoot I will be camping at the club.

Thanks Greg. Now I have to retract an e-mail I sent to Tony! I will look forward to planning a trip this August. Hope to see you at Compton's in June.

Sorry Mike, we won't be going to Compton this year. My wife (that has now taken up traditional archery) says we are going to Coon Rapids MN instead. I guess I just have to put up that. Somehow I think I will get by.
