We will have a full 3-D course for the archers. Bows are limited to traditional bows. No compounds or x bows.

There will be an AWESOME potluck lunch so bring a dish to share.

Had a great time at Jerry Russell's place today. Got to shoot with old friends, eat good food, and see Al make the toilet seat shot from across the lake! Thanks to Jerry, Al and others who worked hard to host this shoot. The course was excellent. Looking forward to the annual banquet and then hunting season.

Thanks to all of you that could make it this year!! Our crowd was off in numbers from years past but not off in fun, fellowship, and awesome dishes to eat. Best weather day we have ever had for this event. It sure is nice to be surrounded by some of the best people this old world has to offer. Glad to call you my friends!!!
