Oh yes there is no charge to watch and the Big shoot off will most likely be Sat night hence the reason for the extra day being listed and incase they need to space out the shooters.. This is not an ignorance issue. This was a very good question, but I have one for you Why Not shoot?? Then you can experience the best of both worlds

Heck yeah. I’d shoot, but have no idea how a Vegas shoot works or how/where to qualify

If you don't mind I can explain it to you as until I moved to Texas I was the South West Councilman (7 SW States) and help run the Vegas shoot. Vegas round is 30 arrows shot at a multi colored face, (same as US Archery with a small exception) the target is scored 10 - 6 on a 3 spot target and 10 - 1 on a single spot. Possible 300 points. No qualifying you pay your money and shoot away.
If you go to NFAA Vegas 2019 and watch the Big shoot off. What equipment are you shooting ?? Sights ? release ?? Tell me and I will direct to accordingly. Most likely flights?? Let me know

Shooting a Quest Archery Centec bow. Fast Eddie XL with Ultraview 4x lens, 3/32 peep, and Hamskea ProHunter rest, Nock On Backstrap back tension release, Black Eagle PS23s, three fletch with wraps. nothing spectacular.

Good sounding setup, then you can shoot unlimited in the flights unless you want to shoot Championship, look farther down and you can see shoot off from other years. You need to try and make it, as this is the Super bowl of archery. Watch Chris Bee's $100,000 and you will get a taste of it all.

Wow, I remember the Vegas shoot from the 70s. It was a blast to attend and I recommend it to every archer including new shooters. I placed 4th in the main even with recurve one year and 1st in the firsts flight. Made $500. Seems like there is a lot more money these days.

I also coached three young shooters to win in their class. I hope everyone that goes has as great a time as we did in the 70s.

It's been years since I went to the Vegas Shoot. It's something you should not miss. Lots of fun, meet new and old friends and a lot of shooting. Hopefully they will have sponsor tents. You can learn a lot.

I remember shooting a perfect 300 with my fingers and recurve. Brought it to my sponsor's booth and they said it wasn't that great a deal ( with a release ). I did get a lot of Kudos when they saw I was shooting one of their first target recurves.

I ended up 3rd that year. I was excited. Finished first a few years later.
