Thumbs up Chester is next

Hill Country is over. As always Bug Scuffle and TBoT put together the best shoot in Texas. Pat, the course was great, a challenge to all. And the get together with new and old friends is always rewarding.
Chester is next!
May 19th and 20th.
No rocks, but plenty of pine straw to lose an arrow in. 40 targets, night shoot, and novelty shots.
2 moving targets, might adjust skeeter so that it does not zip along so fast.
Picking and grinning Saturday night, if weather is bad, we will move into the chapel for that.
Sunday morning after chapel, we will honor Joe Krout with a short memorial service and shoot an arrow into the woods in his honor.
RV spots are full, family accomodations are full, and bunkhouses are filling fast. David Oakes has 15 people coming alone.
Chester is the second family reunion for the year, Hill Country the first.
See you there
email me any questions you have
bdecker@nederland.k12.tx.us

TBoT has my email wrong on the website.

It is really a great shoot, alot of fun, with some awesome people, i can tell you all kind of great stories such as one year i lost a bunch of arrows all were recovered and brought inside for me to claim one gentleman gave my daughter a glove to shoot with after she misplaced hers, also the knowledge and help was top notch. i no longer shoot 3D with a compund after my first shoot with a recurve thats the only way ill shoot 3-D again is with a stick and string

This is gonna sound stupid but is there a longbow wood separate of recurve wood like before or am I just reading the traditional class wrong... I'd imagine this couldn't be there first time I've noticed but does the flyer say it's one traditional class you can shoot both longbow and recurve in it?

Sorry if I'm just confused

John,

I've never been to this one and I can understand your confusion from the flyer. Here's the scores from last year's Chester. From that I would say both wood and open for both bow types (4 classes).

John, the classes are just like always. RC, RC Trad, LB, LB Trad, Primitive (no composite). At least that is how it has always been at Chester.

Caleb, I am going to TRY to make Cinnamin Creek but can only shoot Sat. Right now I'm looking at coming up Friday evening, shooting 2 rounds on Sat, and coming back home.

We have seperate classes for Longbow and Recurve. The Longbow and Recurve classes can shoot any arrow type. The LB Trad and Recurve Trad classes only can shoot wood arrows. We have divisions for men and Ladies. Check out my post above, I listed all the differant classes in it. It is just above the first page of the flyer posted by Jerry. The second page of the flyer contained the pre registration form with all the divisions listed seperate.
Don't hesitate to email me at bdecker@nederland.k12.tx.us with any questions.
Hope to see you there.

John this shoot allows you to shoot wood arrows in all classes if you wish. Open is open which I tend to agree with.Just saying not knocking other shoot rules around the state.

Forgot to list Old Farts division for anyone, any traditional equipment over 60 years old.
Amazing how this division gets larger and larger each year. In more ways than age!

Also we will honor the memory of Joe Krout, Sunday morning after chapel by shooting one of Joe's arrows (donated by his wife) into the woods.

If I remember right, and that's not the case very often, weren't we suppose to mail the check to a different name or address than the one on the flyer?

You are correct. Due to banking disagreement,(small hometown bank-bought out by large national chain) make out checks to Camp TaKuLa.

I would love to be there, but it's a long trip from Alabama. I'm not a Texan but I've spent many days in the Lone Star state. Drove an 18 wheeler for 22 years, lot of miles in the beautiful state of Texas.
I miss Texas, hope yaw have a great time.

I especially love the West Texas area, Van Horn, Junction.

would love for you to come join us. Chester is located approx 90 miles NE of Houston and 70 miles north of Beaumont on Hwy 287, between Woodville and Corrigan. It is held at a youth camp that allows us to use the bunkhouses for overnight accomodations and they open their cafeteria to serve meals on Sat and Sun. 40 targets, with several divisions to shoot in. (listed in previous post)
If you would like to recieve a flyer, send me your postal address (snail mail) at bdecker@nederland.k12.tx.us
One day I will have the ability to scan it and be able to post/send it by email
