    I would like to start a R-100 CONSTRUCTIVE critisism thread.....

    DONT GET ME WRONG......the shoot was awsome.....

    I just think that they have been doing this long enough that they should have had a few of the little things taken care of.....

    Lets start w/day 1.......

    1. The registration line should/could have been seperated into 2 lines......those that pre registered and those that didnt.....I mean what was the sense of pre-pay if you had to wait just as long on the line??? $5????

    2. They could have been more clear on the difference in the 2 shooting stakes......I dont know how many people I saw shooting from the kids stake, because they thought it was the hunter stake:doh:

    3. The steel target challenge should have been seperated from the main target course.....for 2 reasons.....
    a. you had people that tried shooting all 100 targets the first day and had no idea that they didnt have to shoot the steel.....
    b. it was a very dangerous situation when having tio back track to get from target 8 to target 1:doh:


    well thats my thoughts on the first day......

    AGAIN PLEASE DONT TAKE THIS THE WRONG WAY....IT WAS THE MOST FUN I EVER HAD AT A SHOOT

    LETS NOT START A WHY THE R100 sucks.....lets try to help them make it just a little better.....

    I agree!

    With all the things that Bowman listed!
    The camping and the talk and the Pa mountains,the hospitality of the people there was far better than the actual shoot!
    The targets were set-up in some great scenes,the bedded elk with the tending elk and such but the lanes were some times tight between targets where ya had to holler clear alot for shooters around the corner!
    And like Bm said This is not a bashing of the R-100 , the only thing that i didnt like was the Rienhart reps there seemed to be un-organized,like ok what are we gonna do next,and schedualing the drawing the first day so early we had to rush threw the course to get back to the drawing. But the sportsman club had there act togeather with the food and all, the water and snacks on the course.
    Great place for this type of shoot.
    In all it was still worth the 5 1/2 hr drive.:usa:

    Yeah the registration could of went somewhat smoother. As far as the shooting stakes, no matter how clear the instructions or obvious you make them there is always a percentage of people that will either not listen or do what they want anyway, that is just reality.

    I'm not for sure. But a friend of mine that shoots alot of R100's said it was more than that. And supposed to go up again in a few years. For me to drive down by detroit and then spend $40+. Is alittle steep. Unless they have one closer. I wont be attending them. Not enough payback to be worth the $100.00 I'd have invested.

    Ha,Pinwheel!

    My Back-straps and mrs.Smokes spegettii and Louie's and Joes Tenderloin and wild boar,and the camping with friends on this sight:COST

    PRICELESS!:peace:
    Really pinwheel the whole trip for me was something else just to meet archers on this sight who you do nothing more than to type to and send pic's!
    And then to actually meet them!
    Well you'll just have to check it out for yourself, kinda like the first day of bowseason!
    Be there next year!:biggrin1:

    If there were fun and cool people like you guys there I would. But the other problem is they always schedule it when theres an ASA or IBO shoot. Makes it tough..

    So!

    This wasnt just another shoot!
    I left my state where they had a 2 day shoot at a club that i really wanted to go to!
    This wasnt just a shoot, not to me anyway it was just a bunch of archers wanting to meet each other camp talk about hunting and where we live what we do.
    The shoot was just a meeting place that was in-between us.
    It was plained, you know that 4 or 5 months we were talkin about it!
    we all made a plan, made a sacrifice,We all did just to be there,next year u need to be there, you wont regret it!
    Cant u see, were still talkin about it!
    U wounder y ,well thats how great it was,Not the-R-100, The 3-Dshoots boys gettin togeather for a family reunion!:biggrin1:
