3d Open Shooters: $1000.00 1st place, IL,IN,MO,KY Etc. Would you come??
Hey Friends, my name is Erik Sullens, I am one of the guys who helps run The South Central High School Archery Club, Forbes State Park, Kinmundy, IL.
My question is simple, if this was to happen, would you come and take your best shot?
1 class: Open Entry fee $50.00
1st place prize $1000.00
2nd place $500.00
3rd place $250.00
I want your honest opinions. Do you think we could get 50 + shooters to come and play? We would need at least 50 shooters to make this happen. If we could get more maybe we could even pay down a few more slots.
Would it bother you if you shoot against some pros and semi pros? I myself would love to see where I stand against them. This would be a chance to maybe even shoot in the same group as them, just like your a pro on the national circuit.
This would be a one day deal. You wouldn't have to waste the entire weekend away on it but we have a great campground close by if you do want to make a weekend out of it.
With guaranteed money on the line we would need to have some type of pre entry where it would be $25.00 sent in advance and the other $25.00 paid at the shoot.
Would you want a speed limit? Would you want to shoot center 12 or low 12?
Again the main question I have is would you play???

I heard this on AT that this shoot was a scam. Because people never did get there prize money they won. But I don't know if that was true or not.Snake Creek Mafia

Not a scam buddy because it has never happened yet. I just posted this today to start getting some feeback.
I have to find out if I could get the 50 shooters + thats all.
we just want to start having bigger and better shoots and thought this would raise some eyebrows.
I go by the same name on archerytalk and have been a member there since 2004.
I am just a die hard 3d shooter with a passion for 3d. Our archery club is South Central high school archery club. We have after school stuff for the high school kids. They help a ton with the set up and tear down at the 3d shoots.

we have a big team shoot next month and if you look around on here you will see where i have posted several other shoots.
Hope this helps later friends

Here's what I think !
Westy , I'll fire up the Pontiac and pick you up for this one , as we'll need that fast running car to race away with all the winnings , also if we fail to place , we might want to leave real quick anyway ! .............
There are some shooters here in westcentral Iowa , who would do that , but I'm not one of them really !
Wish you well trying to do this !

I would shoot in it for sure........with or with the pros doesnt matter. I have spent more money on less. Let me know when

I would come. I think ASA rules would be great only scoring the low 12. Great warm up for Augusta the following weekend.

First off let me say congratulations for working with the youth promoting archery. I think the team shoot you spoke of with 1 youth and 1 adult is great. I wish we could get enough youngens at our range to do something like that.
I think the money shoot would go over just fine. Picking the right date is the hardest part. I wouldn't think the $50 entry would detour to many. We spend way more that that to go to a ASA, (motels, food, gas, entry fees,) usually totaling around $500 for me in the amateur senior class. And if I win
1st place (not likely) I don't win enough to break even. ????????
I think if you are only going to have 1 class then the speed limit would help to even the field for the ladies, youth and us old timers (seniors). I see nothing wrong with the 280 speed limit. Granted most bows these days shoot way over that, it is much easier to slow one down than for a short draw archer trying to get every fps they can out of one. With 3D archery aging the way it is, the senior classes seems to be one of the bigger growing classes any more.
Definitely bust groups!!!! Even better would be have a shotgun start and randomly assign shooters to targets. I vote for the low 12's too.
I'm not for sure letting the professional and semi professional shooters in would help your participation. Maybe it would, maybe not.
