When you say shooters can not shoot the same class twice in that per shoot or would i haft to move up to another class? An what class comes after novice? An what are the rules of the class? Is there some where online i can go an see all the rules an stuff like that? Sorry for all the questions i have only shot in 1 3D shoot an that was there with you.

Did the ASA change that too. Trying to figure out what speed to set my bow up at so I dont have to worry about changing it back and forth from asa to local stuff.
Flatwoodsbowhunter - unfortunately this year ASA has left Open C at 280 fps and 40 yards, but 290 fps and 45 yards max for Open B and above. If you are shooting Open C in ASA and keeping your bow below 288 fps, you will be fine for both, no need to ramp it up for the weekend shoots. Previously, with Open Trophy at 280 fps, and 40 yards, those who shoot Open C in ASA would have had to do the tune down, or shoot Open Money or fun. Rock Branch's change to Open Trophy at 290 fps and 45 yards will allow Open B or higher shooters who don't desire to shoot for money to have a "class" to shoot in other than fun class.

Honestly, the few fps from ~280s to ~290s should not make much difference. I changed my setup to go from ~284-5 to ~293-4 since I shoot Open B, and honestly there is virtually no difference in the sight tape that I can tell.
