Yep...Allen ran me outta the longbow class, but I've been shootin' the Sheepeater pretty good; will probably bring both.  When y'all gettin' here?

We plan on coming over Friday evening, probably darkish when we get there....unless Dany gets away from work earlier.

Don't worry Doc, I may buy something new between now and next weekend!! LOL

No show???  Jeez, the guy misses one target last month....granted, there was absolutely no explanation for that miss; none whatsoever....but still, he shouldn't feel he can't show his face at Dixie this month    :saywhat:  I really think he needs a firm talking to, you know, by somebody who can get inside his head and crawl around a bit.......anybody got his number?

Bill, if you're listening....ya gotta learn to leverage these things.....for instance, you could tell your wife that your attendance at Dixie this weekend and her invitation to a certain crustaceous event later this summer are inexorably linked....  :bigsmyl:

Bill hasn't shot the last 2 Monday nights at Cool Springs either. Maybe he's just too good for us common folk now.  :archer:  

I think he's just trying to avoid paying Joe for the fancy score keeping!   :biglaugh:  


Burley, look us up when you get there Sat. We will be camping, I have a Silver Tacoma, and will be shooting my ACS.

Doc,
I've been hearing voices inside my head for a lot longer than I've known you!  Lately they've been telling me to choose my friends more carefully  ;)  
Sorry Monday night gang, but it will be 3 weeks for me as a no show.  I know you always look forward to my coaching tips,and worship my every step (especially you Allen), but do your best to get by without me.  
I'm still working on Dixie plans. I may come down early Sunday morning.  Do you think you will all stick around long enough Sunday to make it worthwhile?

Hey All, I will be bringing all four Teenagers again....   :scared:   I'm still stoking the Traditional fires.  We should arrive Friday evening around dark thirty.  After camp set up maybe we can have a little informal coon shoot on the bales.  I'll bring some reflective tacks and a flash light.  My wife Becky will not be with me.  She has surgery on the following Monday and needs to rest up.  Looks like some warm weather.  Should be a great rendevous.  

Mr. Luke Warm Springer....(Bill)  Please come back on Monday nights.  I have attempted to keep Allen amused, but alas he thrives on competition.  Now don't get me wrong... Danny's a great shot also,  But Allen gets all happy getting under your skin.  You should never have beaten him last year.   It will take many more victories before he is avenged.  Get your brownie points for going to the wedding on Saturday.  lord knows we all need them come hunting season.  Hope to see you on Sunday.

Hi guys,
I came home tonight and had a package waiting for me!  My newly camo dipped bow and quiver were awaiting.  Now I know how Allen feels about once a month  :p   If the old girl shoots as well as she looks, look out everyone!  Now I'll surely have to make Dixie so yall can see it.

I knew you were in hiding for some reason, Bill.

Figured it was that or you were in some Olympic training camp in Korea trying to master your archery yen or yang or something.   :archer:  

See you Sunday.

Me and my dad(Andy Diggs) plan on attending on Saturday. This will be our first official trad 3D shoot. Is there anything we need to know about dixie as first timers. Will there be vendors there? Are there a lot of people that are camping friday night and does it cost anything to camp and can you camp if your not a club member? Any basic information about the shoot that isn't listed on their website would be appreciated.

Hey Seth, Camping is free and primative.  You do not need to be a member.  The targets are put out Sat morning.  So, registration and shooting begins after 9:00 am.  Look forward to meeting you and your Dad.  Look for the Cool Springs Gang.  We show up from Charlottesville.  Jeff
