If we didn't already have a trip planned that weekend, would have had to make the drive down. Glad to see a shoot coming back to the camp.

What exactly is the Last Man Standing game and how does it work?

I had to cancel my Javi hunt this week due to wife having surgery. That being said if things go well and the weather permits I may run down and shoot a round on Sunday.

The Last Man Standing is an archery game that is fun for everyone. Show up with your bow to play. We will start with a donated amount of money say $50 just for having a number. The host will call a shot, say, "Shoot the elk". Everyone stands up to the line and shoots at the elk. The arrows in the elk are "free" to move on. The arrows who miss the elk must pay $5 to continue. So now say 4 people missed the shot, and want to continue, the pot grows to $70. You however can bow out at any time and not pay to continue to play. Next the host, moves to the next shot and maybe calls, "Shoot the deer inside the insert", or inside the 8 ring, or 10 ring, or whatever he chooses. Everyone shoots the deer and all the arrows inside the insert are "free" to move on. The arrows outside the insert pay $5 to continue to play and the pot grows. At some point, the continue to play price goes up to $10. Along the way the host gives money to archers playing and participating in the game for making certain shots, or for other various reasons. At some point the host will say no more "buy backs" so if you miss the called shot you are then out of the game. The host continues the call of the shot until there is a Last Man Standing, who wins the coveted trophy, a champion keychain, and last but not least, ALL THE Money in the POT! FYI...I have seen the pots from $250-$1000. It is very fun, lots of laughter, and picking at each other goes on to make it a great game to meet people, and have fun with no pressure.

$25 for the first round. $15 all other rounds. You can shot as many rounds as you have time for. I plan to shoot 6 classes.

So I'll probably consume some meals there. What are the rules involving adult beverages after shooting is done?
Also how many targets on the course?

We've been watching the weather there, and think along the same line. Can't wait for the weekend to get here! I wish we were closer so we could help set up. How many targets are you putting out?

Course is awesome. No rain at all. Looking good. If by chance it rains Friday we will move those shoot downs to Saturday. Also if rains we will do an archery class. All kinds of ideas.

Well there is two 20 target courses, Bob Lee course, and Pope and Young course, for a total of 40 targets. There is a 6 target shootdown field for our games. 8 practice bags for warming up, or instruction on shooting. The course is great BTW...Looking forward to it.

Y’all r funny. It is not a long course. It’s just a fun course. Some challenging. Some easy. Course I miss the easy ones every time. If u come shoot it I promise u will be surprised at the course. It’s one of the best. I have never seen one like it. Y’all let me know what u think after u shoot it. U won’t regret coming.

I'm sure that's true. I regret not getting there.
Unfortunately last night a good friend died of a heart attack. The call came in early this morning. After a discussion with my wife we decided going to visit the family was more appropriate than taking off.
I don't know, my social awareness is lacking. However she's pretty smart and the fact we've known them almost 3 decades, go to church with them, been in and through scouting with them, not to mention I have been a business associate with Larry last six years made me agree that being here was better. I lost a friend once and went on to the scheduled scout outing for the weekend before driving up to Missouri for the funeral and regretted later not just cancelling the campout and going straight to.
Sorry I missed it. Hopefully someone will post a few pics.

Great course, and well thought out. Robin Hooded my first arrow on the practice range this morning, my only lost arrow, so that was good!

Great bunch of folks for sure.

Sounds like some good shooting occurred.

Thank you Camp Ta-Ku-La family: George, Josh, Rebekah, Laurie, Bonnie, Dorothy, Aaron, Jed for your hospitality and help this past week hosting the Chester Classic. What a pleasure it was to work with you all. Bill Decker left a wonderful legacy for the archery community there at Chester. I was fortunate over the years, along with hoards of others, to spend many fun weekends with family and friends enjoying fellowship and archery. Thanks Bill Decker for your mission and we hope to continue that mission with the Camp Takula family and all the fine archers that have come and will come to make their precious memories moving forward. To quote “Big Jed”, “I just so happy!” Also want to thank all the dedicated archers who came and braved the elements to make the first Chester Classic a great one. See Y’all next year May 13, 14, 15, 2022. Had a wonderful time with everyone. Thx. More Pics to come.
