    Thumbs up ASA REALTREE Ft. Benning Championship->1350+!

    Not a bad turn-out this weekend! It looks as though ASA is doing well!
    I wish I could have been there...My baby brother and his sweetheart tied the knot this weekend.
    If it wasn't for that, I would have been there myself. I hope everyone there had a great time.

    Mike told me 1469 shooters. A new record attendance total, also a new record for K45 class.

    141 shooters in K45....had to split us up, half shot the range we were assigned to, other half shot the Sims range, after they reset it a little. Today, we swapped....definitely a great weekend. Weather was perfect. My shooting was not..lololol

    Yeah, the k45 split up was actually very nice! I hope they keep the format going forward. Only 4 to a target which made it quick and really gave us time to focus on the shooting. Great times!

    Glad to see K45 doing well....

    I'm hopeful it eventually leads to growth of K50 too. Not that a bigger K50 would've done me any good this weekend.

    I'm still a believer that known yardage fixes most complaints people have with 3d in general.

    Some dang good shooters this weekend. When someone shoots 36 up with 19 12s or 44 up with 22 12s that's dang good shooting!!

    Wow! 1469 shooters! I figured it was better than my number; I just counted in my head as I went through the different classes checking out the scores. The ASA staff will need some rest this week.

    I tend to side with you T. I think known distance actually will make you a better shooter. Thing is...there are too many die hards that would rather moan and groan about KD. So, ASA will try to offer everyone something.
    I think all the amateur classes should have UKD on Saturday and KD on Sunday. It would put you on the road home sooner.

    K50 would be a monster class size if 14s were put back in play......companys offered money of some sort since it is a pro class......I

    Lots of Georgia Peaches too. Love the Bow babes.
    Shot the team shoot, brought my team way down, reallly have developed some target panic, shooting spots too much and freezing up on brown foam.. Im a Hoyt guy, Shot with two Mathews guys, a Pro and a Semi Pro, I have to admit, these two guys were 1st class acts, impressive range estimating abilities.

    I have only attended 3 ASA big shoots, this is the 1st time I came in Thursday afternoon and took it all in. It was Great experience.

    I had a dream we were following the Lancasters trailer on the way home and it went off the road and came apart like a giant Pinata...and 3d Shooters following were having another X mas.......yeah, I know Im sick. Maybe I should see a shrink?

    I really enjoyed the weekend even though I didn't perform at my best. I loved leaving 5 inches of snow and rolling into warmth and sunshine!

    K50 will have to grow with K45 pulling 140+ this past weekend. K50 is a class that has to be initially filled by people moving "up" into it. Once it draws around 50 or so shooters it will begin drawing from Semi-Pro, Open A and B classes as well as the others. Not every one can or wants to go to "Open Pro". At some point some "newbie" K45 archers will filter over into the Open classes after shooting some tournaments in K45.

    oh yeah, the group of guys I shot with in Ft Benning were great bunch of boys to shoot with in Hunter class. The Gainesville shoot hooked me up with a couple of whiners, I wish I called an official over on hind sight at Fla.

    Wonder how many "former" IBO shooters are now going to shoot ASA since the target switch to Rhineharts?

    It's good to have such a large turn out. And it was great to see the K50 with 26 shooters! I thought the largest attended ASA Pro-Am was in Oak Ridge Tennessee a few years back though? Over 1600 if I remember right.

    I bet to say KY ASA will break all records it usually is one of the top attendance shoots and it is closest for the IBO guys! I say they ASA better be planning for 1500 plus shooters more ranges and larger practice areas!

    I believe if this was the case, there would be 200+ shooters in that class. K45 that is...

    I don't see it happening as it has been the same format for years and nobody moves into it. I see a few K45 shooters moving up to it but the way it looks is K45 shooters move primarily into open classes. My goal is to shoot K50 at some point.
