    So I want to go shoot at a major 3D event in hunter class (like an ASA or IBO tourney) and I am doing pretty well in the SOY standings, but there is no way I can shoot the event on the days that everybody else is going to shoot...should I be able to shoot the event on different days than everybody else since I can't possibly do it on the scheduled days? On a closed course with a couple other people to shoot with me (but not shooters in my class)...

    What do you think....Should I be able to shoot? And why?

    no, you should have to shoot in the exact same conditions as all the other competitors, pick what events are the most important to you and participate in the them.

    What, you get some new ink and all the sudden you think you're entitled to special treatment? :noidea:

    Alright, I'll put this in Texas terms so you can follow me.......

    Thats like Dale Jr. asking NASCAR to race on Saturday's so he can also do Indy car on Sundays.....come on Hook. :noidea: Its the same race buddy, i.e. its not the same shoot.

    I'm special

    ohhhh BS

    What if I have to work that particular day? Sooo what if the other 500 people have to work that day also...

    Tough tiddy said the kitty.

    If you can't make it on the day that the shoot is scheduled , then DONT GO! you loose, too bad.. better luck next time. take up another sport if it conflicts with your schedule that badly.
    Fair is fair.


    Hmmmm, maybe someone should send this thread to ASA.

    we let them at our club on local shoots. two called this past fri. and wanted to know if they could shoot on sat. I told them yes IF they would come early and help put up the targets. at our club we dont have any that want to work.one maybe two putting up 30 targets is a pain in the arse. just for the record, they didnt place so it was no advantage to them

    Hookem what has happened in the past is you could shoot it all in 1 day but some people have even had to shoot in a higher class for the weekend to do that and go bakc to thier regular class after that shoot. They are not going to let you come a day early and shoot it. Mike (ASA) would never let that happen. How did you and pink fair at TX. The Wife finished 12th in WBH and I finished 10th in Unlimited shooting A and B. Talk about rough courses. WOW. Hope this helps ya.
