    So we head out this mourning to go shoot at Algonquin Archers in Woodbury, Connecticut...But we end up at a Boy scout camp in Torrington...30 mi. NE of the shoot...:doh:
    So we get some good directions from the Camp caretaker and we're off again...We finally arrive at the shoot after 3.5 hrs in the truck and the last thing we want to do is shoot...
    I should probably mention that Bowman is running on 3 hrs sleep(he went to the Brad Paisley show at the state fair last night...

    Here's an accurate map of our trip out...:frusty: :frusty: :frusty:

    I'm glad you guys made it. We appreciate it. We had a very dissapointing turnout today. We only had 99 shooters sign in. It was a beautiful day, and Adam, if you shoot the course twice a week, you get used to it! :peace:

    Thanks again for making the trip down guys.

    No problem...I had a great time...
    And the course terrain isn't that bad...I think it was just that Adam spent more time driving than sleeping this weekend...:D

    Hey since we drove for 2 days do we get free t-shirts for the farthest distance traveled...???:lol:

    Google sent you that way?? :doh: The hunter stake was pretty easy...but the Pro stake looked harder. It was a fun shoot with my hunting gear...lots of deer targets, good tune up for the season :rockon:

    No...
    Adam had the wrong address on the first search...so we had directions to a boy scout camp in Torrington...The directions were great...they just went to the wrong place...:lol:

    I just happened to print John's directions from the post but didn't look at them until we got lost...:doh: but atleast from them we were able to figure out where we should have gone and make a course correction...

    The hunter stake was't bad at all...I was off a bit...to the left...and tried adjusting...by target 14 I figured out my sight was crooked abit...

    So my score was 240...But alot of 8's (doublelungers)...so good clean kills...I was satisfied...I know I can smok bambi and that's what I'm concerned with now...

    Glad you guys made it down, maybe next time you should use mapquest instead of google maps!!!! Or just have someone else print out directions!!!!! Turned out to be a nice day for a shoot after starting out so cold. I had a bad first half and kept second guessing myself with my yardage, I came back and did much better in the second half for a score of 233. Not my best score but good enough for 1st!!! :peace: I saw 2 other females yesterday and one didn't turn in her card and the other scored a 202 so I guess I didn't do to bad. Nice to meet you Ed and I hope you finally got some sleep Adam!!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Yeah...It was great to come out and meet you both...

    The problem wasn't the map generator...it was the destination address...I'm sure Mapqest would have given us similar directions...I don't know where Adam got that address...He said it came off your club's site, but I can't find anything even close to it...:lol:

    Ha! We beat your turnout at Limerick. We had a even Hundred. We hoped for more too, but there was some good competition for shooters this weekend. Other clubs switch to Labor Day weekend.
