I saw the date and location of this shoot and I have read all the old posts. It looks like fun and I was thinking of bringing my daughter to this. I sent an email to David Sykes to get more info but I haven't heard back.

Our bows are a Black Widow one piece and a Martin Savannah. Are these bows legal to compete or do I need to buy, beg, borrow something else?

Does anyone know?

Thanks

The black widow is legal. The savannah should pass pretty easily as well, but I'm not 100% sure on that. I'm sure someone has the spec sheet on how to measure it.

It is definitely one of my all time favorite courses and shoots to attend. You won't be disappointed!

I haven't shot it in at least 28 years. It was when you only had a 45 target course. I also think it was the 1st yr that they imposed the specs on the longbow.

The Savannah will not fit in the jig. I had a Savannah the first year I shot and had to borrow a buddy's bow. I really wish they would change the specs to just say 1 or 2 piece longbows with wood arrows to simplify it for everyone.

Well since it is a longbow championship, how about a modern longbow class with carbon arrows?

BW it won't happen. This shoot has had these same rules for over a decade and I don't see them changeing . It is a good shoot and get you some good woods and you will have a different opinion of carbons. I hated wood arrows till I got some well made wood arrows. All I shoot now. This shoot is a must for Arvin every year. See y'all in a couple weeks.

Thanks! Based on "No CENTER SHOT" bows, my Black Widow longbow is not legal either.

If it were just" one piece longbows only". it would open the door to more shooters. I think this will still keep it "longbow" and keep out aluminum riser and take down bows that the rules are aimed at. It just opens up the handle diminsion restriction a little to where more people can shoot a one piece longbow that they may own. Example above statement Featherflinger where a savanah longbow won't qualify , and that's just a basic bow .
I would like to shoot it but I don't have a bow that qualifies, Bodnik Quick stick and that won't qualify and it a simple bamboo limb bow. I don't want to buy a bow only for that shoot. It's not that I am bashing in any way, just see potential in more shooters out there.

I am not saying change anything with the diminsions, it will be the most popular catagory always. I'm just saying if someone chose to, have an modern longbow category. It is a great shoot, and will continue to be even if they have an ML category. I do have some good wooden arrows to shoot at it and look forward to shooting it. Just up in the air if I will be shooting selbow or longbow. Hope to see everyone there.

They don't enforce the center shot or pistol grip guidelines. They're only concern is if it fits the jig.

I just measured my bows. It looks like the Widow is in and the Savannah is out. I'll have to try and find a bow for my daughter to shoot.

Thanks!

stone 386, I see you are in Kyle. You should come out and shoot 3D with us sometime. We have a pretty good group that shoots a lot of the local, and most of the big shoots anywhere around here.

Looks like a good shoot, and really cool that they have kept the bow dimensions so basic. There is so much crazy stuff out there as far as bow designs that it is kinda nice to see something stay as it has been. Good luck to all who attend. I am a recurve guy, and have no issues those are not allowed. By the way, based on dimensions I believe a Bear Montana will work??

Bisch,
Thanks for the invite. I usually make it to hill country and Chester. I hope to make it to this one this year. I may have found a bow to borrow.
I have 4 kids and we are in church on Sundays so I try to pick the best shoots.

I have a bow your daughter can shoot, and maybe arrows to match, depending on how long her draw is, I am a member and vendor, if you live anywere in the dallas area, i'm in red oak...my number is 214-796-7808

these are my thoughts on the shoot, NOT THE CLUBS....
as for the rules and regs. THIS IS OUR 31ST YEAR, we have made only a couple of changes to the rules over the years. and i personaly think any changes are for the bad.
I know some don't like the rules, some hate them, but this is the shoot and the shoot rules. alot of others don't care, and they come and play,
my wife NEETZ AND I have shot all over the country, and this is by far one of the most diverse shoots you'll go to, and will meet a BUNCH of great folks.
like i said this is just my humble option

So I thought I had directions to this shoot, but so far I am not finding much. I sent a couple of emails and tried to call but I didn't get a reply.

This is all I could find using search:

"May 24 & 25, Memorial day weekend. The range is located just off of the 820 loop outside of Fort Worth. I'm pretty sure the road is Camp Bowie Drive?, but someone might need to correct me on that. Its just a couple miles though once you turn off of 820, not hard to find."

"It is called Sherwood and is on 580 just west of Chapel Creek Blvd."

I am scratching my head. Are we trying to keep this a secret? Can someone send me some more specific directions?

Thanks

I don't know the year the longbow shoot
Started. It was a couple or more before
I started going. I believe it began at the
Cowtown range the first few years. It has
Been 50 targets since I've been attending.

Maybe someone who has been around
Longer than me will chime in with some
More history.

oh almost forgot, ""been busy""

the main gate we usually go in MIGHT NOT BE OPEN. you will have to go in the gate by the bridge. we have cut many turn outs for traffic to pass, but please be careful coming down the road. A secondary opening might be open friday to get in to the field. as of right now we have not opened it yet. but watch for more updates, I'll try and post things as i get them...

I just got a call back from David Sykes. It sounds like they were having an issue with their email server and the emails were not getting through.

Everything sounds great, can't wait.

Sam, Enjoyed shooting with you today. Good Luck Tomorrow.

Course is set up great and is not in bad condition. You folks who set this up did an excellent job! I was expecting it to be far muddier (is that a word?) than it is. I wore rubber boots, but will not tomorrow unless it rains tonight.

Danny Jarmon had the high score that I remember seeing at 229.

Looking forward to tomorrow!

Rusty Horn is second in Open class behind Danny. Sparky Brooks had a 221. I think there are a couple of others inbetween those. I shot selfbow and shot what I thought was pretty good (199), but there are a half dz folks ahead of me. Brandon Rogers had a big lead in the Composite class!

Like Wayne said, the TSLC crew did a fantastic job setting a course, esp with the changes that had to be made because of the creek!

There are three guys tied at 221 in the Open Class, I think for Third Place

Brad Reuthinger is leading the Selfbow Class with a 218

I don't remember who is leading the Senior Class, but his score was 203. I had a 196 in Senior Class and that is 5th Place, I think.

Great course definitely a mental challenge.
Well I managed to lose 3 arrows and manage to finish last but I had a blast.

I love this stuff it's like driving a bicycle the harder you fall the better you get.

I had a blast! I shot my best two rounds I have ever shot at this shoot and with a Rob Green selfbow to boot! There were some very salty selfbow shooters this year. I ended up with a 400 and in 5th place in selfbow. Mark Holman won the selfbow class with a 434. Brad was 2nd with a 419, and Charles Alexander was 3rd with a 407.

Brandon Rogers shot lights out with his composite bow, and won the composite class running away with a 443! That was also the 2nd highest score turned in for the whole shoot!!!!

Can't wait till next year!

Nice meeting you David Rubio, even though it was brief along the trail!
