I get it I was just disappointed to see the focus on paper in May/June.

Paper shoots bring in just as many shooters now.  The days of huge attendance at 3-d shoots are gone.

Each year in October the WSAA has a convention and they seek clubs out/ to hold the different state sanctioned to events. Often times we out in for the State 3D but we have held it so many times it's been other clubs time in the rotation.

The club has a good mix of hunters, target shooters,and Tradtional shooters so we try to do something for each of the groups.

I will also add that they are 1/3 The work to put on.

Went out this morning and shot a round. The mapping system works best if you leave it on while walking the course.

And 1/3 the fun!

In all seriousness I can respect the economics and effort involved.

I understand I'm a 3d fan myself and don't get as excited about papershoots. To do a 30 target 3d setup probably takes 6-8 guys 5 hours to setup... and it can take 2 guys several hours just to setup moving targets if we set those up. Unfortunately there arnt a lot of people who can't take off or have Fridays off to setup.

Setting up shoots is the worst clubs get very little help setting up for most shoots.  When granite has shoots I'll be there everyday until dark trying to get set up.

I often wish I'd just pay the $20 to shoot my own 3ds instead of set up....

So I've been playing with the Avenza App Map  for the club, and overall it's working pretty good. I've found that down in the bottom of the valley is where it is  the least accurate. Not really a shocker I know... aside from about 5 targets it's pretty accurate. Of the 5 that it doesn't work as well it still puts you close enough to find a target butt or stake with a number on it to refine where you are at. Shouldn't be too difficult just looking at the map.

Any thoughts on the map or course is appreciated!

Enjoy  shooting the course I do!

As some you may know Silver Arrow Sponsors a 4H archery program. This was their setup at the Skagit County Fair this weekend.

Looks cool.
I'm greatful there are still places that are around with people who love archery enough to put all this time and effort into helping others in the sport.  :tup:

If you live in the City of Mount Vernon and are not a member but shoot the course we NEED your support through membership. This isn't about the $, or trying to Shanghi you into working at the club.  We need you to increase our pull with the mayor and city Council.  If you have a fiend/fellow shooter encourage them to join or give them a gift so that we can reinforce the good work the club does providing the community with a place to shoot.

Silver Arrow Bowmen wants to extend  a special offer to all City of Mount Vernon residents.  We want you as a new member!  Next year membership prices are going up but we would like to give you the old price for our yearly membership with no initiation fee! $30 for an Individual or $40 for a family. As an added bonus when you join you can shoot the rest of 2017 for free!

Here is how to join. Come to one  of our business meetings, the first Monday of the month. At the meeting you can pay by cash, check or credit card.  If you can't make a meeting stop by the clubhouse and fill out an application, attach a check and place it in the shoot box by the door. We will mail you your membership card.

As a member you can shoot the outdoor course as much as you want anytime it is open.  The course is open nearly 350 days a year during daylight hours. Use the flat range after dark using the quarter fed lights. Attend club events like the Turkey and Christmas shoots where we have a potluck and play shooting games afterwards. Join us for our indoor league shooting, just for fun, the competion, or practice.  Meet other Archers from the area. We have a good mix of families, competitive shooters, hunters, and Traditional shooters.

Good time at the Clubhouse. Got to shoot an amazing Ben Pierce and old Bear. Not something a lefty like me gets the opportunity to do often. Also got to shoot a local bowyers bow. Nice but a little heavy for late in the evening.

Did some lights out, lighted knock  glow stick shooting.
