    Well, got back from the 2 day Pacific Coast Championship and I came in 3rd place. The most important part was that I had lots of fun and the weather couldn't have been better. Here are some pics to give you an idea of the way it's set up. There were about 180 folks and we had a really nice group. The first pic is me and my group that I shot with. From left to right is Sami, Stacy, me and Connie. Stacy took 1st place and a lady from another group got second and I came in third.

    This is a long shot to show the shooting line...seems to go on forever.

    Here's a shot showing just half the target lineup with the "stop lights". Was pretty nice..lights and whistles ....and good food too....

    NAA rules say tops can be any color and no advertisement. They can be archery club shirts etc...but they did mention several times that if people didn't have right dress code they couldn't shoot. NO JEANS for sure, you can wear shorts, pants or skirts in Blue, white or khaki and shirts for women can be short sleeved but have to have at least 3" strap. Most folks wear polo type shirts. It was lots of fun and quite the experience. I will be doing this shoot again next year for sure because it's always in the same place.

    What is the purpose of the dress code? I understand that you should wear soemthing that is respectable and not distracting to other shooters... but no jeans??? :noidea:

    Here is the direct link to the dress code of FITA and the NAA http://www.usarchery.org/html/DressCode.htmlIt's the same dress code for the Olympics and they feel that denim is suitable for field archery not the FITA stuff. Hey I don't make the rules...but it looks nice when folks are dressed nicely.
