        MONTHLY SHOOT INFORMATION AND RULES

WE ARE A TRADITIONAL ONLY CLUB.   ONLY RECURVE, LONGBOWS AND PRIMITIVE BOWS MAY BE USED.  THESE BOWS MAY NOT HAVE ELEVATED RESTS, SIGHTS, OR STABILIZERS.   NO RELEASE AIDS OR STRING WALKING CAN BE USED.  ONE FINGER MUST TOUCH THE ARROW KNOCK, SPLIT FINGER OR THREE UNDER ARE FINE

OUR USUAL START TIME VARIES DUE TO THE SEASONS, IN THE EARLY SPRING WE START ABOUT 8:00 AM CENTRAL BUT AS THE DAYS LENGHTEN AND THE WEATHER WARMS WE GET STARTED A LITTLE EARLIER.  SCORE CARDS MUST BE TURNED IN FOR COMPETITION BY 3:00 PM CENTRAL.  SHOOTING FOR FUN MAY CONTINUE AFTER THE COMPETITION CUT OFF.

THERE ARE 20 3D TARGETS SET IN A WOODED AREA THAT IS SLIGHTLY ROLLING, SOME HILLS BUT NOT TOO STEEP.  THE PATHS ARE CLEARLY MARKED BUT UNIMPROVED,  WEAR STURDY FOOT WEAR.  

IF IT IS WARM INSECT REPELLENT IS A GOOD IDEA TO KEEP THE TICKS AND CHIGGERS AWAY.    SO BRING YOUR LUNCH AND DRINKS ( NO ALCOHOL ) AND STAY ALL DAY FOR THE MAXIMUM SHOOTING ENJOYMENT.
