    Judges were as always, very professional.

    Only issue I saw was trying to run the fields simultaneously. I don't understand that decision. We ran them separate last year. I heard that comment...

    Not much to add here that Larry, Stash and Lynda haven't already said.

    But I'll ask, since you're in CA, have you lived outside that area? Because it's not really representative of what most of...

    On the road still, but just checking in. As Liz stated, PM me or her to let us know what you're thinking, and please be specific to Outdoor Nationals and how to include barebow in that event. That...

    Those who know, appreciate the effort for sure. Those who don't, cannot understand the undertaking that Nationals - esp. these days - is.

    Thank you Darrell and co. for all the exceptional...

    I know better than to hope the 1st leg will once again be at the TX Shootout. :D But then again, if I shoot well enough I suppose that will mean at least one leg will be a 'home game' right. ha,...

    Oops. Sorry. I'll clear that.

    Kevin, so far it's not been a problem. The moms checking the watches... that's a bigger problem IMO. :D

    Not something I'd use in a tournament, for the reason...

    I won't even use a riser that doesn't have a stabilizer bushing aimed back at the archer. For years, I shot without a v-bar and side rods - just a long rod and heavy backweight (ala, Butch Johnson)...

    Yea, because some of our archers have literally nothing better to do with their time. ;) And the ones who organize these events know that.

    I couldn't care less honestly. Show me the rules,...

    Yea, when someone wins the match. :D Hence the "neverending match" moniker. ha, ha. But that's the value of it. It teaches an archer to never quit. That even when the set points are earned, they...

    Set System Matchplay, with a twist

    As the coach of competitive JOAD archers, I'm always looking for new ways to help them gain experience in every type of competition. We routinely use 36 and 72-arrow ranking rounds to seed archers...

    It's been there a while ( I seem to recall seeing it years ago) and I like it. We should all want our best archers to have a legitimate chance to earn a spot to represent us.

    There are plenty of others, but I personally believe in Lancasters customer service and know that Rob has a staff of superb people assembled there. So it's easy to support them.

    Yes. Rule states that all arrows in an end must be the same. You can switch every end if you wish. However I've yet to see a 900 or 600 round host who would care.

    Except that I cheat and usually shoot 9-arrow ends when I'm training, both for shooting endurance, and to save on the walking.

    It's not the walking though. Compound and barebow archers will do...
