Title: Two Youth bows to be given away March 17
Post by: Mike Mecredy on February 18, 2017, 02:06:00 AM
Get your kids signed up,  I'll be making Two St. paddy's green pup longbows for the TGMM Youth Bow program, and we'll be drawing the names on St. Patrick's Day in the evening.

Winner just agrees to post a pic of his/her kid and the bow on the Tradgang.com pow wow for us all to see the future bowhunter.  Once the kid out grows the bow, he/she shall pass it along to another lucky kid.

Good luck      :D

My granddaughter, Mya, will be turning 5 in April.
When she was at papaw's house for Christmas, she really wanted to shoot my bows....but the weather didn't cooperate....

Thanks for the chance!

I have an 8 year old daughter Ellye that is outside "shooting" my 45lb recurve right now.  I have her enrolled in an archery class through home school, but it's using a Genesis compound that we can't bring home.  She loves being outside with me and my recurve and longbow.  I'd love for her to be able to shoot a quality longbow before the compound ruins her on trad.  Thanks

OK, let's do this.  We had 46 entries total.  Thanks to all the members who entered the kids names for the drawing.  Every entry was given a number, in order they entered.  The first entry was #1, the second #2, third #3 and so on, all the way to #46:

Title: Re: Two Youth bows to be given away March 17
Post by: ronp on March 17, 2017, 07:22:00 PM
Then I went to one of those websites that pick random numbers.  In this instance, #1 through #46.  I made up a target in Excel, and put in the random numbers. Top to bottom, left to right. I guess it sounds a whole lot more complicated than it really is.  Shucks, I figured it out!

Then I went out in the snow and stapled the "target" on my block target I won at the OxTAR shoot we attend every year here in NY when the snow melts (really good shoot to attend, by the way).

Then I strung up my awesome little Quarf recurve for the first time in months (Quinn Stallion riser machined for ILF limbs).  And sent one down range... about 8 yards!

Captain*Kirk and huntmaster:  Please contact Mike at Maddog Archery to give him the specifics of the Pup bows.  I am sure the kids will love them!  

And please, please, please, if you all would post some pictures on the PowWow forum of the kids with their new bows, we all would appreciate it.  We like to see those smiles   :bigsmyl:  

And remember, when the kids out grow these bows, please pass them along to other kids with the same stipulations.  Keep the TGMM program rolling!
