: PBBH 30TH ANNUAL BEN PEARSON MEMORIAL MAY 15th & 16th
May 4th, 2010, 12:07 AM
The Pearson has been moved up to May instead of July this year to try to beat the heat. We are looking for a good turnout again this year. The shoot will be a stagger start on saturday and a shotgun start at 9:30 on Sunday. I will repost with all the times and prices. We have gone back to having a novice class and a fingers class seperate. We followed the ABA on combining those two classes but decided to change it back since it was not taken too well by members of both classes. Pro can only shoot pro and can only shoot on sunday. Pro shoots for money and first place will recieve a plaque. all other classes will be given plaques for top 5 places. (even fingers even though we only had 3 shooters last year) (we would really like to see more bowhunter finger shooters come out and support this shoot and their division). This is a very nice shoot with thousands of dollars in door prizes and several hundred shooters. You may shoot more than one division if your equipment allows and they are on seperate ranges (except pro). Also traditional shooters are allowed to shoot the same range more than once in different divisions. We will be having Country Gossip cater the food again this year, it was VERY GOOD last year. the ranges are clean and will be sprayed several times over the next two weeks for ticks and mosquitoes so they shouldn't be a problem. we hope everyone is able to come out and shoot and have a good time with us.

Will ASA guidelines be followed for the maximum distances in the classes ?
May 8th, 2010, 02:05 PM
this shoot will not be asa format or affiliated but the distances should stay within the asa limits. i was told there will not be any targets intentionally set over 45 yards for the higher classes and our club has come up with some max yardages for the youth and younger classes. hope this helps with your question.

there's some guys around here interested in shooting both days, they shoot longbows. what other division will you have that they can shoot for the second day? thanks

i know a longbow can back up and shoot barebow. i'm not sure what else they would be able to shoot. recurve is the next stake back so they might could shoot that but i'll have to check.
May 10th, 2010, 05:21 PM
long bow can step back to the next stake and shoot recurve for a score. the traditional range is the only range that can be shot more than once for a score and the shooters are supposed to shoot the furtherest stake first. the longbow shooters who are wanting to shoot both days will need to shoot recurve on Saturday and then shoot longbow on Sunday. thanks
