Some of the things we'll be doing at this event include shooting at 3-D targets all day long in a couple of different formats. We will have our usual 20-target course plus a 5-target Iron Man course. We will also have a five target coon shoot on Saturday night after dark. In addition, there will be a pot luck supper on Saturday night at 6:30 p.m. What's a pot luck supper? It's where participants bring a dish that they have either prepared or purchased to share with the group. If everyone brings a little something, there's plenty to go around.
In addition, there will be hunting equipment demonstrations going on during the day on Saturday as well. We will have several different brands of tree stands and climbing sticks to show you. We will have a tree saddle demo. We will have safety gear demos. So, you can see some of the gear that folks are using, learn how they use it, learn how they've modified it to make it more efficient, etc.
We will have a selection of broadheads available for you to try if you're looking for something different. We will help with bare shaft tuning if you need to do some of that. We will have a variety of field points of different weights for your tuning well. We will also have a hand held bow scale available so you can know your true draw weight. And we will have a chronograph set up so you can know what your arrows are doing speed wise.
We will not provide a lunch on Saturday but we will have drinks available for sale. Maybe snacks of some sort as well, but no meal at lunch time.
Sunday, we will have our regular format.
Lunch will be available on Sunday only at the same rate we always have. We ask for a $5 donation per person to help defray the cost of the groceries.
Both days will include hourly drawings for Lancaster Archery gift cards. These have been graciously provided by our friends at Lancaster Archery to help us promote our event.
This event is being brought to you by the North Georgia Traditional Archery Club and Lancaster Archery.
We had a pretty good turnout for the weekend and we almost made it the whole day Sunday without rain, but we got a mite wet picking the targets up.
We had 68 folks over the two days, some came for both days, and that's good. We enjoyed good weather all day on Saturday. The hunting demos were fairly popular from the look of it. Thanks to Steve Angell, Buck Ernst, Gordie Focht, and Crispin Henry for coming and setting up stands, sticks, saddles, and the like and sharing information with interested parties.
Thanks to Fred and Cathy Fox for performing the host duties perfectly on Sunday. Thanks to those who set it up, took it down in the rain and made short work of it all. And, as always, thanks to those of you who made it out to be with us. You are why we do it. See y'all in a couple of weeks at the TBG Dan Quillian Memorial State Shoot.
