Some of My Photos, and thoughts

can be seen here: http://www.pbase.com/billneve/vegas_09

Mostly of the Kids shooting.

Something good to say first:
Having a half hour to practice on the target you were going to compete on was fantastic! I really, really hope they continue this!

Soap Box Time:
I still think the NFAA should do more to promote Archery to the kids by not charging such a high entry fee for Vegas! And if they are going to continue to charge such a high entry fee, THEN they should give out nicer awards. The medals that the kids get are pretty mediocre at best. Maybe some kind of monetary gift certificate could be added to the medal?

Vegas Kids...

Hey Raptor,

I was there with my son Michael DeCosta, wish we could have met you and your son. Michael won the Cub Freestyle division. He shot a 295 and a 292, had a great time.

I agree with you, I think they could do a bit better on the kid's awards. When Michael won the NFAA Field Nationals in South Dakota this past year he got a really nice silver bowl and took it to school to show his teachers and friends. Don't mind paying the $75 for a kid to shoot, but like I said, I agree the award could be a little more.

We also live in CA, so if you see us at any of the shoots, please introduce yourself. Here's a pice of Michael at Vegas

I shot in the youth division. I got 11th place in the males. 75 bucks is not that bad. The travel costs more. But, if there are 1500 archers there, we better get something nice. I had some kids from my club win, but I didn't see their medals.

Just send in your money...

...and show up in Vegas!

Do a Google on "World Archery Festival" to get the details.

Hope to see you there next year.
