    My club is putting in a permanent 14 target field course. We already have an indoor range and we usually keep out 10-15 3D targets between shoots. A couple of us were thinking it might be fun to shoot an archery marathon.

    Here was what I thought might be fun.

    10 targets - - unknown distance 3D course.
    6 rounds - - NFAA 5 spot target
    14 targets - - NFAA Field course
    10 rounds - - Vegas 3 spot


    We would just add the totals. Maybe even make it a blind double or something.

    That would surely separate the men from the boys.....

    Awsome idea.

    That is exactly what Jim was thinking for the Posten open, multi-disicipline.

    Will this be a league, or are you going to host a shoot?????

    Hasn't even started yet and it is already separating the men from the boys....:laugh: :laugh:

    All it is is 2 5 spot rounds in a day with a heck of a lot more time in between most shots....

    Dang why does all the fun stuff happen up north or out mid west. Man I can go toe to toe marathon with any one. We do not do things like that for some reason.
