At Vegas - the very center is an X - scores 10 but the next smallest ring also scores 10 -


So an X is a "higher" rank and tie breaker for tie scores.

(At least that is what I was told.)

Yes the very center scores a 10 but it is a 10x if it is in the x ring. These guys shot 300 (30 10's) with 30x's (absolutely perfect).:o

You may have to scroll your window over to the right, as it lists the score total, number of 10s, and then lastly number of X's. Looks like you are only seeing the total, and total 10s.
For example, you will see a score as 300, 30, 27.

Wonder how far the 'lucky dog', Jimmy Butts got in the shoot down? He has to WIN IT ALL to get any cash at all! He won't butt anyone else out of their money payout unless he WINS THE SHOOTDOWN...if he doesn't, he gets nothing.

Why no INTERVIEW with the winner of the event? They were tripping over themselves to interview SECOND PLACE, however? Everyone on the chat when the shoot off and waiting for awards was hollaring for Jesse B and an interview..but why not Dietmar; afterall, he WON the event!

Isn't that sorta like, impolite or something? Surely there must be a good reason that the WINNER wasn't gaga'd and goo-goo'd over for an interview the way 2nd place was?

Heres why from my end...
1. Jesse is a long time friend and I felt comfortable asking him for an interview...

2. He didnt quite have the crowd around him.

3. We r from Md. and alot of Md. folks were watching.

4. I dont get paid 2 do this...its just for fun

They did interview him....YOu have to watch the entire shootoff video.....you will see Tim Gillingham walk up to him and say...Congrats a Puncher finally won it...I cant believe a puncher won it.....And hey congrats to Brian Helland for making it to the shootoff...Gotta love those TrueSpot Scopes.

Congrats to all of the shooters that made it to Vegas.:D

Good deal. I guess I didn't watch along far enough. I stand corrected.

Notice that, like the true professional he is, Michael Branden came back and shot his full round on Sunday even though he didn't stand a chance of winning a thing. This speaks very, very highly of Michael Braden.

I know many, many shooters would have just "bagged it in" and not finished up at all.

Way to go Michael Branden!

That shows the kind of determination and drive it takes to compete at that level. He is a great archer and a good guy to match...He and his wife were both very friendly at the Outdoor Nationals in 2009...and at lancaster too. was a pleasure to meet and chat with them both.:D

Ok so did any one wonder why there was a shoot of for second place?? I thought that you shoot untill a winner is determined and then if there are same scores shot after the winner is determined it goes by x count. Im not trying to say that Jessie didnt get second or anything i am just confused on the rule... Watching the crowed and shooters after Detmar shot, the general assumptoin was that the shoot was done and Chance got second because he had a more x's???? Does anyone know the official ruling for this?? ?? ??

In the Championship Div. all ties for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd are shot off. After Dietmar won then the other two were tied at 29 and had to have a shoot-off for 2nd, place.

I was reffering to the chopping to condense it down to 20 minutes. It may be blas'e for those who attended but the rest of us would really like to see every detail of the event. And yes, Hi res would be nice as well.

3. "No second place winner" Bill Jordan

Ask the Indianapolis Colts how they feel about coming in second !

Maybe so....but there is also my favorite..."winners loose more often"

Meaning pretty much that there is always someone better somewhere and there is only one number 1 spot...
You must first know how to loose gracefully in order to appreciate winning with dignity..

if you are that focused on only winning you will not be having fun. and for me having fun is first and formost. sure shooting good and winning is fun but the guy that does his or her best on that given day and still has fun will be hard to bring down.

I agree with you that one should lose gracefully and I always have outwardly.
But, I would lay odds that every archer that qualified for the shoot off after 3 days of shooting a perfect 900 was very disappointed not to have won.
Except for Dietmar, of course. :)
Some took it well but some were hurting inside more than they will ever admit.
But, like you said, only one number 1 spot so what can you do. ;)
Hey, "only one number 1 spot"; that sounds like another good quote about winning. :thumbs_up :D

Yepper, I was taught to ALWAYS look at things this way:

In ANY competitive endeavor, there are those that haven't been beaten, and there are those that are going to be beaten, and ALL OF THEM end up in the latter category. The difference is just that most of them end up in the latter category sooner than the few others.

I remember when I was playing semi-pro racquetball, a young whipper-snapper came up to me just prior to us playing in the finals at a smaller tournament. He said to me, "I'm going to kick your ever-lovin' arse, old man." I looked at him and said, "Be my guest, cuz if you don't, then there are plenty around that are going to." He gave me the funniest look and was caught speechless.
I won that match in two games by the way: 15-12, and 15-2. By the middle of the second game he was so frustrated that his "Jack rabbit" maneuvers weren't making it easy for him that he was skipping almost everything he hit. So much for the "arse kicking" hahaha.

I Think that it would be a great honnor to be second or third in Vegas... Placing in vegas is a HUGE accomplisment. When you place second or third in vegas then you can talk about how you wish you were first....... Untill then maybe you should keep your opinions to yourself... those are my friends you are talking about.... THANKS

You're right about that, Springy.
For the last several years, I have watched the shoot off at the NFAA indoor tournament.
The general public is never there to watch; the archers in the shoot off have only their peers to watch them try to win the tournament.
If an extremely painful to watch boring game like Golf made it big, why not archery ? :)

All of the shooters that made it to the shoot off, If they are 100% honest with thier selves, should be happy with where they placed. They are all incredibly talented.

Thier accomplishments should not be diminished simply because they didn't take first place. Don't get me wrong, I like first place as much as anyone else but I can also recognize the hard work it takes for the winner to beat me and be happy for them for it.
