The course was a bit rocky in spots, but not too bad... stayed on my feet, or rather outta the dirt... :chortle:

Believe it or not there was a Shoot Off.... Sticky vs. Bowgod...

Target was decided upon, set up at a relatively unknown distance, and let the Shoot Off begin.. :cheers:

The boys lining up for the Shoot Off....with the peanut gallery in tow...
613691

The target.. it was about 55 yards.. no rangefinders allowed.... Sticky & BG had to wing it..
613692
BTW... took a few ends before the target was pierced clean thru... :mg:


The winner
613693


Sticky eating the target... :faint:
613694

I know there's a video of the whole thing....

And a new "corn shoot" tradition is born. The "Corn" shoot off:D

And just to clarify it took 2 ends to complete I hit the husk on the first end wich was ruled a no hit since it didn't pierce the corn.

Also it shoulf be noted that the target holder is a 2 inch aluminum pipe, so you don't want to miss low.

Can't wait for someone to post the video!!!!!!!

:ROFLMAO: I missed ya today Bro.... I know if you were there, I'd have not dropped six points between target 27 and 28! :frusty: :mg: :ROFLMAO:

TA has been great and miserable for me.. I've shot it quite a few times, and last year shot my PB and PW all in the same season there... :ROFLMAO:

Today I shot about my average for this summer, so... I'll do better tomorrow.. ;) :D :darkbeer:

Heck I did the same thing on Sat @ Nationals on 26 and 27....then 19ed the 80 to end the day....there went my 540 :doh:

Do I need to tap a pic of me to your limb :chortle:

You could always take the long way to get corn and go across the WW Bridge :chortle:

But that course always kicks my butt for some reason :noidea:

Well, if it wasn't for going back and shooting target 1 again, as we took it for practice, I wouldn't have even tied.. at least I 20'd that sucker the second time around.. :ROFLMAO: :becky:

Shoot Off!!!!!!

Hinky & Young Jedi.... And because it was these two, it was debated wheither they were going to shoot at 80 yards... however, the peanut gallery decided on 57 yds.

There's no video of this, as Sticky, Bees, Jay & Lisa headed out after the rain...

Here we have Hinky & Young Jedi, with the peanut gallery.... and a pict of the target... 614818

Yes....We braved the rain, but it quit by the 5th or 6th target. If it wasnt for NANAYAK's lens cover I would have had no chance! Thanks again for that, it was a life saver.
