Ok Sam :thumbsup:

Shawn, the Championship Shoot Downs will be at approximately 4PM on Saturday.

I think I've posted earlier that the Men & Women recurve and longbow shooters will no longer shoot combined.  The Men & Women will have their own longbow shoot downs as well as the recurve shooters.  $500 for 1st, $300 for 2nd and $200 for 3rd.  A total of $4000 will be paid out for the winners.  THEN, the 1st, 2nd & 3rd Place of the Men's Longbow & the 1st, 2nd & 3d Place of the Men's Recurve will compete for the Men's "Top Shot Award", same goes for the Women.  Should be very exciting.

Shawn, I'm hoping you self bow shooters will now have a chance getting into the Shoot Down with the Longbow shooters.  That's all I can afford, LOL.

Should not be a issue. I made it into the last man standing in 2018 with selfbow to the last six guys against any kind bow. When they started moving targets out to 35yds however it got tough.

Let's give a little more info on this year's "Championship Shoot Down".   :archer:

First, the Howard Hill Classic has always been a Multi Round event.  Your first round could be your highest or your very last round could be your highest to try and place in the HH Classic Awards.

You can shoot your main bow for competition and then shoot your other bows for fun, for one fee, OR, if you want to compete with your other bows, you would have to pay a fee to enter another Class.

NOW, with all that said, ONLY your first round qualifies you for the "Championship Shoot Down".

So, if you think your longbow will give you the best chance at a good first round score, use it.  The same can be said if you think your recurve will.   Let me also say again, there will be a separate Shoot Down for the Men's & Women's Longbow & Recurve shooters. 

Four Shoot Downs, each 1st, 2nd & 3rd Place Winners will split $1000.00 for a total of a $4000.00 pay out for the "Championship Shoot Down".

For you men or women that shoot self bows, if your first round qualifies you, you will get to compete in the Longbow Shoot Down.

For those men that will compete in the Men's Senior or Men's Supper Senior divisions, even though you may use any bow you want, YOU MUST inform us at the Registration Table as to what bow you shoot on your first round.  This way, we'll know if that round will qualify you and in what class you'll be in for the Shoot Down.

Whew!!! I hope this will make good sense for the "Championship Shoot Down".   :archer2:

Folks, let's not forget about the 2nd "Rhonda's Luck of the Draw" shoot down.

This event last year was very cool.

For those archers just getting started or that just don't get to practice like those that really do, THIS COMPETITION IS FOR YOU.

SO TAKE YOUR BOW TO THE "Championship Shoot Down"!!!

We'll take the non qualifying shooters and put their names in a bucket, then draw FIVE names, of men & women.

We'll put each of the five on a different 5 target range and let them shoot 3 of the five targets.

There will be three winners.  the 1st Place of each will win their choice of a Bear Archery "Montana Longbow" or "Grizzly Recurve".  The 2nd Place will win $125.00 and the 3rd Place will win $75.00.

Oh, by the way, the man that won $100.00 last year, had never shot in a traditional archery competition before.

Last year, the 1st, 2nd & 3rd place winners of the Championship Shoot Down, from both the Men & Women got to shoot for the American Traditional Archer's "Top Shot" award.

This year will now have the 1st, 2nd & 3rd place winners from the Men's & Women's Longbow & Recurve Shoot Downs.  Six winners from the Men & Women's competition will be shooting ONE ARROW for this year's "Top Shot" award.   This award stands 14 inches tall and 11 inches wide from wing tip to wing tip.:archer2:

I feel sure you'll be shooting in the Men's Longbow Shoot Down as well as you're shooting that self bow of yours, Shawn.

That's the plan Terry although its very hard to run with glass bows as they are just a little more stable and predictable. I shoot Selfbows cuz they are that way. I get a little complacent shooting glass rigs. I did it from age 5-40yrs and loved it but it's not in my wheelhouse any more especially hunting.
