    Vermont Triple Crown 2012

    Happy New Year All,

    We are in the planning stages of the second year of the Vermont Triple Crown. This is my first posting of 2012 and with that comes excitement to grow 3-D Archery in Vermont and New England. This first post has two main objectives which are introducing our newest qualifying location and planning our for winter meeting.

    • We are excited to announce Catamount Bow Hunters, Inc. in Bennington Vermont will be the First Qualifying Shoot for the 2012 Vermont Triple Crown. Catamount Bow Hunters 3-D course has become one of the top 3-D archery courses in Vermont. They along with us are excited about holding the first qualifying shoot. We do have one dilemma that we want to get feedback from “YOU” the shooters before we finalize dates for 2012. Catamount has March 31st and April 1st open for a date to hold the qualifier. We have looked at other dates but with IBO Qualifiers, R-100 Shoot and the Tri-State Archers shoots it seems they have most of the dates used up. If we learned anything from last year is that we want to grow the Triple Crown and we can’t do that by competing against great organizations like the IBO. We all know the weather is 100% different in Bennington on April 1st compared to Montpelier or St. Albans at the same time. So I NEED and WANT feedback as soon as possible on these dates.

    • We are going to hold a winter meeting with-in two weeks to discuss several key topics like: Classes, Format, Dates and Payouts. If you want to come we are going to have the meeting in Burlington and I request you send me a private message or an e-mail so I will have a head count. This meeting is about ideas and not a conflict meeting. From day one I looked at you “The Archer” to help us model these shoots so they were something everyone would enjoy. I know the first year wasn’t perfect but we did receive a ton of positive feedback from a lot of different people. This year we are asking for more of your input and ideas so we can grow the Triple Crown to the next level.


    Thank You,

    Tim

    Hey Tim,

    Good to hear the planning is starting. I can not wait to start shooting again and look forward to the Triple Crown. Let us know the date of the meeting I would like to attend.

    Lastly, are there any league shoots going on in central Vermont this winter? I will be shooting at Kevin's Custom Arrows in Vershire starting the end of the month. Just curious if there are any others you guys know of.

    Changes From 2011 to 2012 Vermont Triple Crown:

    We have gone from a one-day qualifying event to a two-day qualifying event.

    Reason for the change: A lot of work is put into setting these courses so why not shoot two days vs. shooting one day. This also allows shooters who may work or have family comments one day be able to shoot the other day. Only one score per weekend will be used for the Triple Crown. This more of a convince thing for people who can’t shoot on one day or the other.

    We have gone from having to shoot two out of the three qualifiers to only having to shoot one qualifier to qualify for the shoot off weekend in August.

    Reason for the change: We are trying to attract people from Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and New York that cannot commit to shooting two out of the three qualifiers to qualify for the shoot off weekend.

    We are working on something special for those who commit to shooting all three qualifying shoots. It would be something like a new Muzzleloader, a couple game cameras. It will be a great prize. Your name will go into a special drawing at the shoot off weekend. So the best shooter and the worst shooter will have the same chance to win that prize as long as you shot in all three qualifying shoots. We are also looking at doing 1st place trophies in each class for the highest average combined score for those who shoot all three qualifiers.

    This is a money base shooting Triple Crown. The more people that shoot the more money that will be available at the shoot off weekend in each class.

    Change in Classes.

    Added “Backyard Bow Hunter Class: This class was designed for those archers that are new to 3-D archery or it’s for the archer that doesn’t have the skill set as some of the top bow hunter shooters. We want this class to be for guys who have bow hunting set-up only. We are going to put Money Cap on this class and we are going to do trophies for the top 5 shooters at the shoot off weekend. We want this class to be competitive for shooters with the same skill levels. If we see or know of someone trying to cherry pick in this class they we be moved to one of the other bow hunting classes. The person that wins this class will be asked to move up a class next year.

    Back Yard Bow Hunter- The Archer can use movable pins, fixed pins and optics. The Archer will not be allowed the use of stabilizers longer than 12” Maximum yardage will be 40yrds.

    Change Senior Bow Hunter Class: We are allowing this class to use optics and long stabilizers. As we age our eye sight goes downhill and I had been asked by a couple archers to allow them to use lens. I think it is a good rule change for this class.

    “Senior” Bow Hunter Class ~ The Archer can use movable pins, fixed pins, optics and powered lenses. Maximum yardage will be 40yrds. Age older than 60yrs.

    Fingers Class: Has been dropped from the Triple Crown

    Like always your comments are apprciated. We are willing to refine these a bit if need be. I wont be able to make everyone happy with these rules changes but we as a group feel they a re a huge step forward to making this a better Triple Crown. I will post all rules as soon as build these into my packet.

    Thanks,
    Tim

    Shoot-Off Weekend August 25 & 26


    • The Vermont Triple Crown Archery Tournament was designed to bring excitement & sportsmanship back into 3-D Archery. We are combining the resources of 4 individual archery clubs to make one great product that everyone can be proud of. Its an opportunity to develop new friends and spend quality time with families. Archer’s are good people with good values that respect one another on and off the Archery course. These are the type of people we want our kids and family to be associated with.

    • The goal for the the Vermont Triple Crown is to provide a safe, fun and competitive atmosphere. We all know things won’t be perfect, but we want all involved to know that each club will be working as hard as we can to make this a positive experience for everyone.



    Tournament Overview:

    There are three events viewed as qualifying rounds for the Triple Crown Tournament. One qualifying shoot will be held at each of the three “qualifying” clubs. Any archer shooting in one qualifying events can shoot in the Triple Crown final tournament.
    The Vermont Triple Crown 3-D Archery Tournament, a TWO~DAY event at Whistling Arrow, August 25 & 26, 2012, will determine the overall winners. An Archer is only allowed to shoot one class during the Triple Crown events.

    **AN ARCHER ** only has to shoot one out of the three qualifying shoots to get qualified for the overall competition. The overall cash winners are determined from scores at the Whistling Arrow Triple Crown 3-D Archery Tournament weekend.
    Each club will have local shooters that will not be involved in the Triple Crown, but will shoot from the same stakes and use the same rules at each weekend of qualifying. We encourage all to be respectful and understanding that this may be a bit different for them than what they are typically use too. Each local club will do what they typically do for trophies and door prizes.

    Classes:

    FOR ALL CLASSES: An Archer cannot use a **RANGE FINDER** and MUST meet the 5 grains arrow weight per pound of peak draw weight. (IBO regulations).

    • Open Class ~ The Archer can use movable pins, fixed pins, long stabilizers, optics and powered lenses. Maximum yardage will be 50yrds.

    • Woman’s Class ~ The Archer can use movable pins, fixed pins, long stabilizers, optics and powered lenses. Maximum yardage will be 40yrds

    • Bow Hunter Class Fixed Pins ~ The Archer will not be allowed the use of stabilizers longer than 12”, sights with optics are not allowed. This Bow Hunter class can use fixed pins. Maximum yardage will be 40yrds.

    • Bow Hunter Class Movable Pin (Micro Adjustable sight is “ok”) ~ The Archer will not be allowed the use of stabilizers longer than 12”, sights with optics are not allowed. This Bow Hunter class can use movable pins. Maximum yardage will be 40yrds.

    • “Senior” Bow Hunter Class ~ The Archer can use movable pins, fixed pins, optics and powered lenses. Maximum yardage will be 40yrds. Age older than 60yrs.

    • Back Yard Bow Hunter. The Archer can use movable pins, fixed pins and optics. The Archer will not be allowed the use of stabilizers longer than 12” Maximum yardage will be 40yrds. (This class was designed for those archers that are new to 3-D archery or it’s for the archer that doesn’t have the skill set as some of the top bow hunter shooters. We want this class to be for guys who have bow hunting set-up only. We are going to put Money Cap on this class and we are going to do trophies for the top 5 shooters at the shoot off weekend. We want this class to be competitive for shooters with the same skill levels. If we see or know of someone trying to cherry pick in this class they we be moved to one of the other bow hunting classes. The person that wins this class will be asked to move up a class next year.)

    • Senior Youth Class ~ The Archer can use movable pins, fixed pins, long stabilizers, optics and powered lenses. Ages of this class will be between 12yrs-16yrs. Maximum yardage will be 40yrds.



    Cost & Prizes:

    If you’re just attending the local shoot for fun and have no desire to be part of the Triple Crown the cost will be $12.00 per shooter.

    Each qualifying event will cost $25.00 for archers that want their score counted as part of the Vermont Triple Crown 3-D Archery Tournament. The Club will receive $12.00. $10.00 will be set aside for the Final Triple Crown Prize Money. $3.00 will go to door prizes and certificates. If you shoot in 2 of the 3 qualifying events and attend the Whistling Arrow Triple Crown shoot-off weekend you will be placed in a drawing for a NEW Glendale Full Rut Deer Target. We will also be presenting certificates to the top three in each class after qualifying events based on the high average from two qualifying events.

    Whistling Arrow’s final event fee will be $35.00 per shooter for the Triple Crown, because it is a two-day event compared to the other clubs holding a one-day shoot. (If you are just attending the local shoot the cost, will be $12.00 Per Shooter.) The club will receive $25.00 and the Triple Crown will place $10.00 per shooter into the Final Shoot-Off Prize Money.


    Breakdown / Explanation of fees

    • Backyard Bow Hunting Class will be broken down with the same percentages but the cap will be $200.00 for the class.

    • The local club holding the qualifying event will get $12.00 from the original entry fee of $25.00 per Shooter. $10.00, set aside for the Final Triple Crown Prize Money, will go into the class associated with the entry fee

    Example: If you’re shooting in the Bow Hunters Class the entry fee will go into the Bow Hunters’ prize money. Some classes will have higher payouts, because they will have more shooters in the class.


    • Prize Money for Shoot-Off Weekend:
    The qualifying entry fees will be added to Whistling Arrow entry fee ($10.00 per shooter) The Shoot-Off weekend will be a clean slate for all. The qualifying rounds will mean nothing at this point. You do have to shoot two out of the three qualifying rounds to be eligible for the Shoot-Off Prize Money. Local shooters will also be shooting this event like the qualifying events, but will not be involved in the Vermont Triple Crown Prize Money.

    After day one of the Shoot-Off Weekend scores will be posted. The top 5 in each division will be paired off for the final day of shooting on Sunday. This will insure that fair shooting will happen across the board. An official from Whistling Arrow Archery Club will walk the course with each division and keep score. (Ex. Open Class will have 5 shooters and an Official, Woman’s will have 5 shooters and an Official and so on)

    The Final Prize Money will be paid to the top 5 in each class. They will also receive a certificate indicating their finishing place.

    Example: Final Prize Money after adding in Whistling Arrow contribution.
    $1000.00 (Bow Hunters Class)
    • First Place: $1000.00 x 40% =$400.00 Prize Money
    • Second Place: $1000.00 x 30% =$300.00 Prize Money
    • Third Place: $1000.00 x 15% =$150.00 Prize Money
    • Fourth Place: $1000.00 x 10% = $100.00 Prize Money
    • Fifth Place: $1000.00 x 5% = $50.00 Prize Money

    (THIS AN EXAMPLE ONLY TO HELP EXPLAIN PRIZE MONEY PAYOUT)



    Final Thoughts:

    We want everyone that is thinking about participating in the Vermont Triple Crown 3-D Archery Tournament to think about one thing and that’s the “Old Days”. We all remember when a family could travel to a local shoot and enjoy a day of shooting archery, having a burger and tell some deer stories with friends. We are all trying our hardest to make those days come back to Vermont and 3-D Archery.

    Rule changes ~ Woman’s bow hunting class and backyard bow hunting class

    FOR ALL CLASSES: An Archer cannot use a **RANGE FINDER** and MUST meet the 5 grains arrow weight per pound of peak draw weight. (IBO regulations).


    Woman’s Bow Hunter Class ~ The Archer can use movable pins, fixed pins and optics. The Archer will not be allowed the use of stabilizers longer than 12”, Maximum yardage will be 30yrds


    Backyard Bow Hunter Class. The Archer can use movable pins, fixed pins and optics. The Archer will not be allowed the use of stabilizers longer than 12” ,Maximum yardage will be 30yrds.


    I had received a bunch of e-mails and calls about adding the Woman’s Bow Hunter Class and I feel it’s a great class to add. We want everyone that comes to the Vermont Triple Crown to have fun and have an opportunity to shoot against people of the same skill level. We want it to be challenging but in the same breath we want everyone going home with the same amount of arrows as they came with.

    I have also decided to drop the Backyard Bow Hunter from 40yrds max down to 30yrds max. This change is to help promote the class to the new archer trying 3D archery. We want these archers to hit every target and enjoy the sport as so many of us have grown to love over the years. I feel if they come and enjoy themselves they will be back and they will also support their local archery clubs.

    I hope everyone is excited about the change and please pass the word around about the Vermont Triple Crown.

    Thanks,
    Tim

The main reason why were doing the Vermont Triple Crown is build the future for our kids.

    (This class was designed for those Archers that are new to 3-D Archery or it’s for the Archer that doesn’t have the skill set as some of the top Bow Hunter shooters. We want this class to be for anyone who has bow hunting set-up only. We are going to put Money Cap on this class and we are going hand out trophies for the top 5 shooters at the shoot off weekend. We want this class to be competitive for shooters with the same skill levels. If we see or know of someone trying to cherry pick in this class they will be moved to one of the other bow hunting classes. The person that wins this class will be asked to move up a class next year.)


    • Traditional Class ~ Maximum yardage will be 30 yds.

    Longbow, Recurve, or Self Bow (no compounds)
    No release-aid – No Mechanical Devices
    Sights, or marks on string or bow for sighting;

    • Senior Youth Class ~ Maximum yardage will be 40 yds.

    The Archer can use: Movable Pins, Fixed pins
    Powered Lens
    Stabilizer; any
    Ages of this class will be between 12 yrs-16 yrs.





    Cost & Prizes:

    If you’re just attending the local shoot for fun and have no desire to be part of the Triple Crown the cost will be $12.00 per shooter.

    Each qualifying event will cost $25.00 for archers that want their score counted as part of the Vermont Triple Crown 3-D Archery Tournament. The Club will receive $12.00. $10.00 will be set aside for the Final Triple Crown Prize Money. $3.00 will go to door prizes and certificates.

    Whistling Arrow’s final event fee will be $35.00 per shooter for the Triple Crown, because it is a two-day event compared to the other clubs holding a one-day shoot. (If you are just attending the local shoot the cost, will be $12.00 Per Shooter.) The club will receive $25.00 and the Triple Crown will place $10.00 per shooter into the Final Shoot-Off Prize Money.

    Breakdown / Explanation of fees

    • Backyard Bow Hunting Class will be broken down with the same percentages but the cap will be $200.00 for the class.

    • The local club holding the qualifying event will get $12.00 from the original entry fee of $25.00 per Shooter. $10.00, set aside for the Final Triple Crown Prize Money, will go into the class associated with the entry fee

    Example: If you’re shooting in the Bow Hunters Class the entry fee will go into the Bow Hunters’ prize money. Some classes will have higher payouts, because they will have more shooters in the class.

    • Prize Money for Shoot-Off Weekend:

    The qualifying entry fees will be added to Whistling Arrow entry fee ($10.00 per shooter) The Shoot-Off weekend will be a clean slate for all. The qualifying rounds will mean nothing at this point. You only have to shoot one qualifying rounds to be eligible for the Shoot-Off Prize Money. Local shooters will also be shooting this event like the qualifying events, but will not be involved in the Vermont Triple Crown Prize Money.

    After day one of the Shoot-Off Weekend scores will be posted. The top 5 in each division will be paired off for the final day of shooting on Sunday. This will insure that fair shooting will happen across the board. An official from Whistling Arrow Archery Club will walk the course with each division and keep score. (Ex. Open Class will have 5 shooters and an Official, Woman’s will have 5 shooters and an Official and so on)

    The Final Prize Money will be paid to the top 5 in each class. They will also receive a certificate indicating their finishing place.

    Example: Final Prize Money after adding in Whistling Arrow contribution.
    $1000.00 (Bow Hunters Class)
    • First Place: $1000.00 x 40% =$400.00 Prize Money
    • Second Place: $1000.00 x 30% =$300.00 Prize Money
    • Third Place: $1000.00 x 15% =$150.00 Prize Money
    • Fourth Place: $1000.00 x 10% = $100.00 Prize Money
    • Fifth Place: $1000.00 x 5% = $50.00 Prize Money

    (THIS AN EXAMPLE ONLY TO HELP EXPLAIN PRIZE MONEY PAYOUT)


    Final Thoughts:

    We want everyone that is thinking about participating in the Vermont Triple Crown 3-D Archery Tournament to think about one thing and that’s the “Old Days”. We all remember when a family could travel to a local shoot and enjoy a day of shooting archery, having a burger and tell some deer stories with friends. We are all trying our hardest to make those days come back to Vermont and 3-D Archery.

    I am very excited to let everyone know that the Vermont Triple Crown has a Primary Sponsor for 2012. The most exciting part of it is that one lucky shooter who attends all 3 of the qualifying shoots and the shoot-off weekend will be entered into winning a 5 days, fully guided hunt in Ohio with meals and 6 nights lodging for 10/22 to 10/26 on thier 10,000 acres of bow hunting only property!!!! The value of the hunt is $2,650.00!!!!!! What I need is everyone to do is send Matt and Brock a quick e-mail thanking them for this awesome opportunity. Please check out their web site at sunfishvalleywhitetails.com it’s AWESOME!!! I will be handing out flyers and brochures to all shooters. Like last year we gave out about $2,000.00 in door prizes and this year with this donation we could push $5000.00. I will continue to talk to companies about donating items. What I need is for everyone to bring a friend and help grow the numbers.

    PLEASE CHECK OUT THIS WEBSITE!!! The deer they are killing will blow you away. Again if you could take 30 seconds and send them an e-mail and say thanks it will be greatly appreciated!!! For guys thinking about hunting Ohio this is the place!!! Send an E-mail out and they will gladly answer all questions. sunfishvalleywhitetails.com

    Thanks,
    Tim

    I'm going to go up for a qulifier and the final shoot. The closest club is the one in bennington which is almost 2 hours. Can't wait to shoot at a different club.
