The course will officially open at 8am, but if everything is ready at 7:30, shooters can go out as soon as they register.

My new handle is not ready, so I picked up the limbs from Rob. Got them stuck on my other BL handle, got a string rigged up, and the Franken-bow is sending them down range.

I got a 2-day pass from my wife, so I'll be there bright and early Saturday morning!

I thought I shared this earlier, but now I'm not seeing the post. Anyway, the Sleep Inn and Suites at 2825 North Earl Rudder Freeway in Bryan is offering a discount on rooms booked for shooters participating in the Bob Lee Memorial, thru choicehotels.com. Angela is the contact rep, and the number for the hotel is (979)485-5577. The Sleep Inn is at the corner of Hwy 6 and FM 2818, and is less than a 10 minute drive from the range.

Glad to see you'll be able to make it!

Counting down the days...

Folks, bring your bug spray and/or Thermacell. I think they are going to fog the lanes today or tomorrow, but with all the recent rain, the mosquitoes are the size of hummingbirds and fairly aggressive. Not much we can do in some areas, as thick as the brush is.

There will be bottled water in coolers every 5-6 targets, but you might bring a bottle to start out with. Make sure you are staying hydrated!

Randy Madden 06-17-2021 09:42 AM

Well, not gonna make it. Just got word that my daughter and grandkids will be here Saturday morning to spend the weekend with us for fatherís day!
Iím way more excited to spend time with them than yíall anyways!
:D:D:D
Have fun, shoot straight, and donít get to hot!!

Bummer to miss you. But that sounds way better than shooting silly little bows with a bunch of sweaty, stinky hunters.

Thanks for the warning about mosquitos!

Is this standard TBoT shoot fees?

I am double checking with the powers that be on the fees. I Ďthinkí it is $15/round, but Iím not 100%. Iíll post up once I hear for sure.

The range at BCAC had a 10 minute torrential downpour yesterday. There isn't any standing water to worry about, and most of what is there should dry out today. I walked most of the course in tennis shoes, but mud boots wouldn't be a bad idea. Some of the trails are a little slick in areas. The mosquitoes are pretty aggressive, much like they are everywhere right now. Spray and/or a Thermacell are strongly suggested, lol.

Thanks for the info!

Since this is a TBOT shoot is there going to be a self bow class?

While this is not a TBoT shoot, we are following TBoT classes. There will be a self bow class.

Here is the answer I got on the entry fees: $15/round, and you can buy up to 3 mulligans per round for $1 per mulligan.

Trumpkin 06-19-2021 07:42 PM

The course was absolutely fantastic! I had a great time, shot two rounds, and managed not to get devoured by mosquitos. Thanks for the great shoot!

LAW 06-20-2021 01:32 PM

Bisch 06-20-2021 01:36 PM

Yep, a fantastic course! Excellent set up, quality 3D targets, great practice range.

BBQ was darn good, too!

I'll certainly be back and hope to bring others.

ballgame 06-20-2021 06:12 PM

Totally agree! Great course with a great mix of shots! Really hoping this becomes a yearly thing. Thank you to everyone who made this happen!!!

Awesome time with great folks!

Skunklady 06-21-2021 08:10 AM

Thank you Brazos Cty for putting on this memorial tournament in honor of Bob Lee. We had lots of fun seeing everyone and shooting with friends. Bob Lee Memorial will be one I will put on my schedule every year.

Trumpkin 06-21-2021 09:13 AM

I'm interested to see how many people turned out to shoot. It sure seemed like a good number of folks were on the course.

This one is definitely going on my list of must do shoots next year.

On Facebook they said there were 99 people who signed in and 195 scorecards sold.

CamoQuest 06-21-2021 05:55 PM

Bisch kindly offered to post the scores up here once we had them. We’ll try to finish them up tonight and get them to him. I know folks want to see them. :)

SJP51 06-21-2021 07:55 PM

I know my score and will pay an extra Mulligan fee if you'll not post it!

I attended my first traditional shoot, didn’t win, had a blast, met some great people, found out there is a difference in aiming a recurve and longbow. Also learned you shoot better with lower poundage. I shall return.

pure lefty 06-21-2021 10:27 PM

Oh and match was well run, great course!

I shot with them Sunday morning, some fine folks no doubt!

CamoQuest 06-28-2021 08:08 AM

The awards that were not picked up on Sunday will be mailed out today or tomorrow. Some of the winners I will see in the near future and I will hand deliver... congratulations to everyone who came out!
