FEBRUARY 6, 7 & 8 The ESDF/Danage Instant Scoring System team at work: Greg Easton, Erik Kornbek (Denmark), Emmilo Allmendinger (Germany), Ardingo Scarzella (Italy) and Matteo Pisani (Italy).

The “New” Vegas Shoot— What a Difference a Year Can Make! Archery’s version of the “economic stimulus package” was found at the 2009 Vegas Shoot: New seating, new electronic scoring, new instant standings on big screen displays, and, finally, no more complaints about inadequate practice space or time. Thanks to grants from the Easton Sports Development Foundation (ESDF), in addition to some schedule and Novelty Event tweaking by the World Archery Festival, this year’s streamlined Vegas Shoot was acclaimed as the best ever. Yes, the poor economy, coupled with higher travel costs, affected attendance (over 1400) a tad, but you’d never know it if you were in the huge crowd watching Sunday’s exciting, sudden-death, shoot-off among the eighteen Pros tied with perfect 900’s. These eighteen are automatically in the running to win the WAF 3-Star Tour’s One Million Dollars. To win the million, they must shoot 600 with 120 X’s at the Louisville Indoor Nationals, March 14-15, as well as a perfect 1200 at the First Dakota National Bank Archery Classic in Yankton, June .13-14. Electronic scoring is not new to archery — it’s been used in Europe and the Olympics for many years — but the essentially “instant” scoring using the Danage Hand Held Terminal (HHT) is new to the USA and the World Archery Festival. Greg Easton, ESDF board member and President of Easton Technical Products, worked hand-in-hand 4 ARCHERY MAGAZINE

with a four-man international team headed by Erik Kornbek, founder of Danage of Scandinavia. The team set up shop in the Grand Ballroom, and were on-call from Wednesday through Sunday, assuring acceptance of the HHT and success of the Instant Scoring System. Since written instructions on use of the HHT were available at every target butt, and since line judges were trained beforehand to provide assistance, electronic scoring proceeded throughout the tournament with nary a hiccup. One HHT was holstered at each of the seventy, 4-target, butts in the Riviera’s Grand Ballroom. [Because this was test year, the Royale Pavilion was not “wired.”] Each HHT is programmed with the target number and the assigned shooters’ names. After each scoring end, the shooters’ arrow-by-arrow scores are entered on the HHT, duplicating what’s entered on the official paper scorecards. Once the electronic scores are transmitted to a central processor, the scores are totaled, sorted and displayed on the big screen monitors within a few minutes after-the-fact. Moreover, once all total scores from the paper scorecards are processed (about an hour after the scorecards are turned in), they’re transferred from the WAF computer to the Danage Scoring System computer for an instant error-check and subsequent reconciliation. The “paper” scores from the non-HHT Royale Pavilion are also transferred to

the Danage computer, then merged with the other “electronic” scores, sorted, and instantly displayed on the monitors. It’s really neat. The two major changes to the Vegas Shoot this year were: (1) thirty minutes of on-the-clock practice in addition to the two official practice ends allowed before start of official scoring, and (2) elimination of the three-arrow, five-end, 40 yard Novelty Round. There was still open practice (at no charge) Thursday afternoon in the Grand Ballroom, as well as in the small designated practice room off the Riviera Convention Center lobby from Thursday

afternoon through early Sunday afternoon. This seemed to satisfy nearly everyone. Since there has never been enough room inside for either the Novelty Round or its processor, the Indoor Marked 3-D Round, the “Vegas Shoot” is now only the Vegas Shoot. Besides, the weather outside the Convention Center was wet and nasty. The WAF Vegas Shoot and its sister shoot, the WAF Archery Classic, are rather unique tournaments in that only three of the seven adult “championship” style/divisions, Freestyle, Freestyle Limited continued on pg. 6

Round Two, Saturday, February 7th

The women’s Freestyle Limited Recurve line in the Grand Ballroom.

Recurve and Crossbow offer both male and female awards. Championship Bowhunter Freestyle, Freestyle Limited Compound, Senior Freestyle and Barebow divisions are all unisex. Likewise, all four “flight” divisions, Freestyle, Bowhunter Freestyle, Freestyle Limited Recurve and Freestyle Limited Compound, are unisex. Of course, the Juniors must be separated by male and female. Adults shoot for cash prizes only, while the Juniors (Cub, Youth and Young Adults) shoot for first, second and third place medals (Vegas Awards). Round One, Friday, February 6th Sixty-two archers in six divisions shot perfect 300’s on Friday. Forty-two 300’s were shot in the Championship Male Freestyle Division alone, while another thirteen 300’s were shot in the Freestyle Flights Division. Two 300’s each were recorded in Championship Bowhunter Freestyle (Lynn Hoch and Troy Knoll), Championship Female Freestyle (Erika Anschutz and Tiffany Reeves) and Young Adult Male Freestyle (Ben Cleland and Garrett Ayersman). Dennis Neely shot the sole 300 in Senior Freestyle. At the Championship level, first, second and third place ties are broken by a shoot-off, and not by total X-count. Nevertheless, a high X-count on Friday is a sign that you’re a favorite to make Sunday’s shoot-off. Jesse Broadwater’s 300 with a perfect 30 X-count and Grant Schleusner’s 30029X’s led the list. Seven others in the Champion6 ARCHERY MAGAZINE

ship Male Freestyle Division recorded 28 X’s, while the rest of the “300” shooters’ X-count ranged from 27 down to 17 — all with a chance to make the Sunday Shoot-off. There were several other close matches with very fine scores recorded on Friday. There were five and seven 299’s scored in the Championship Female Freestyle and Championship Bowhunter Freestyle Division, respectively, to go along with the leaders’ 300’s. In the Senior Freestyle Division, four old-timers with 299’s and four with 298’s were close behind Dennis Neely’s 300. In Barebow, past champion Teddy Kibel led defending champion Rick Stark 293 to 290. In Cub Male Freestyle, Michael DeCosta led Jimmy Bell 295 to 292, while in Championship Freestyle Limited Compound Division, Graham Cofield led defending champion Jeff Fabry 297 to 295. Equally close matches were also evident in the Freestyle Limited Recurve Divisions. For the women, Aida Roman’s 286 was one point better than the 285’s shot by Khatuna Lorig and Jennifer Nichols. For the men, Brady Ellison (296) led Jay Lyon (294) and Joe McGlyn (293). Some fine scores were also shot by the Young Adults. Tristan Skarvan and Carli Cochran were tied in YAFFS with 295’s, followed closely by Elizabeth Sweet with 293. Gregory Scherer’s near-perfect 299 in YAMFS was only one point behind the perfect 300’s by Ben Cleland and Garrett Ayersman (noted above). Several other scores in the 290’s were shot in the Youth Freestyle Divisions, led by Hunter Jackson’s 295 and

This second day of the three-day Vegas Shoot is the final day for all Cubs, Youth and Young Adults. The Cub Girl gold medalists were Anna Whitcomb, Tayla McCue and Anna Miscione, in Freestyle, Freestyle Limited Compound and Freestyle Limited Recurve, respectively. The corresponding Cub Boy winners were Michael DeCosta, Jake Kuhlemeier, and Jacob Roshto. Paige Pearce edged Hunter Jackson 590 to 589 to capture the Youth Female Freestyle title, while Wu The McCurry rallied from ten points behind to win the Youth Female Freestyle Limited Recurve title over Tracy Lewis. In Youth Male Freestyle, Brandon Hood, Alex Wifler and Riley Whiting were all tied with 596’s with Brandon capturing the gold on X-count. Joseph Lira and Nathan Yamaguchi were the Youth Male Freestyle Limited Compound and Recurve winners, respectively. The Young Adult Female gold medalists were Tristan Skarvan and Nicole Crisp in Freestyle and Freestyle Limited Recurve, respectively. In the Young Adult Male competition, Ben Cleland and Ernesto Boardman, Jr. were the Freestyle and Freestyle Limited Recurve champions, respectively. Ben shot a perfect 600 to edge defending YAMFS champion Garrett Ayersman by one point. The adults completed the second of their three rounds on Saturday. The number of shooters remaining “perfect” was cut in half: 62 to 31. Twenty eight men scored 600’s in the Championship Male Freestyle Division, all of which were still in the “Shoot-off Chase,” with two-day X-counts ranging from 59 (Jesse Broadwater) down to 38 (Eric Osmonson). Cody Thompson in the Freestyle Flights Division, Dennis Neely in Championship Senior Freestyle Division and Ben Cleland in YAMFS (noted above) shot perfect 600’s as well. Nichola Simpson, Mary Hamm and Kelly Ward each shot a 599 to tie for the lead in the Championship Female Freestyle Division. Tiffany Reeves was just one point behind and three others, Christie Colin, Holly Larson and Camilla Soemod, were two points behind. Rick Stark passed Teddy Kibel, 582 to 581, to lead the Barebow Division, while Lynn Hoch and Bill Hakl, each with a fine 599, lead the Championship Bowhunter Freestyle Division. Jeff Human, Troy Knowl and Steve Wagner were close behind with continued on pg. 8

Aida Roman, 575 to 572, while Jennifer Nichols was one point farther back with a 571. In men’s Recurve, Brady Ellison’s 590 increased his lead to five points. Ashley Butler and Patricia Copley, tied with 592’s, led the Female Crossbow shooters, while William Pimm led the men with a 586. Although Cody Thompson remained perfect in the Freestyle Flights Division, eight others with 599’s were on his heels. Round Three, Sunday, February 8th The highlight of the WAF Vegas Shoot has always been the crowd-pleasing way of breaking ties. While X-count is used to determine the order of finish in the non-championship divisions and flights, all Championship Division shooters tied for first, second or third place after ninety arrows, not conHey!

where the shooters finished.] The Pros shooting perfect 900’s, were (in alphabetical order): Michael Anderson, Nicholas Annen, Chance Beaubouef, Jesse Broadwater, Dave Cousins, Martin Damsbo, Jedd Greshock, Cabe Johnson, Kelsey Johnson, Morgan Lundin, Dan McCarthy, Levi Morgan, Grant Schleusner, Gary Smith, Jr., Scott Starnes, Keith Trail, Jackie White and Reo Wilde. After the second end of “regular scoring,” Levi Morgan and Gary Smith, Jr. were eliminated. Then in the third shoot-off end, where only the Xring counts as a “10,” Cabe Johnson, Grant Schleusner, Martin Damsbo, Keith Trail, Scott Starnes, Michael Anderson, Dan McCarthy, Nicholas Annen, Jackie White and Jedd Greshock were all eliminated. That left only five to shoot it out for the big money. Jesse Broadwater, Dave Cousins and Kelsey Johnson dropped out after the fourth shoot-off end, leaving only Chance Beaubouef, Reo Wilde and Swede, Morgan Lundin. Chance made it through the sixth end before he had to settle for third place ($2,500). Reo and Morgan remained tied for five more shootoff ends, when Morgan thought he had it won in the 11th end with a 30 to Reo’s 29. Morgan’s score was challenged, however, and both the second and third line judges declared his score a 29, making them tied going into the next, and final, end. It

sidering X-count, must face an end-by-end shootoff in front of a very large and boisterous audience. Thanks again to the Easton Sports Development Foundation, the spectators this year got a great view of nearly every shot during the shoot-offs. With two powerful TV cameras capable of zooming in very close, anyone who looked at the real-time display on those big-screen monitors, seemed to know “who’s still standing” even before the line judges got to the targets. The WAF Vegas sudden-death shoot-off rules are as follows: After two ends of standard Vegas scoring, the third and subsequent ends are scored with the X-ring as a “10.” All other “gold” hits are scored as “9’s.” This year, in addition to the 100% probable shoot-off in the Championship Male Freestyle Division, there were five other sudden-death shoot-offs: (1) Chris Berry vs. Lynn Hoch vs. Troy Knoll for third place in Championship Bowhunter Freestyle; (2) Bill Hakl vs. Jeff Human for first place in the same division; (3) Dennis Neely vs. Steve Boylan vs. Richard Smith for second and third place in Championship Senior Freestyle; (4) Tiffany Reeves vs. Mary Hamm in Championship Female Freestyle; and (5) Aida Roman vs. Khatuna Lorig for second place in Championship Female Freestyle Limited Recurve. These five shoot-offs were conducted at the same time on the same 21⁄2 minute clock. It was a great warm-up to the “Big Dance” involving the eighteen Pros tied with perfect 900’s. After the second end of the shoot-off, Troy Knoll (5th), Steve Boylan (4th )and Aida Roman (3rd)

was a worthwhile challenge by Reo Wilde, because his perfect 30 to Morgan Lundin’s 29 in the 12th shoot-off end earned him the 2009 Male Freestyle Vegas Shoot Championship. Reo collected $25,000 from the WAF, plus $10,000 from his sponsor, Hoyt. Morgan’s award was $6,000 from WAF, plus $2,000 from Mathews. Other Championship Division winners were: Rick Stark (868, $1,700), Barebow; Nichola Simpson (898, $3,550) Freestyle Women; Patricia Copley continued on pg. 10

Welcome NFAA Field Archers!

Mechanicsburg Sportsmen’s Association, home to the Mechanicsburg Archers, is proud to host the 2009 NFAA Outdoor National Field Championship, July 22 – 26.

Where Are We Located? Mechanicsburg Sportsmen’s Association’s Physical Address: 493 Sample Bridge Road, Mechanicsburg, PA 17055 Website: www.msa-pa.org

The Mechanicsburg Archers will also be holding a Penn-Dutch League shoot June 20 & 21, 2009. This shoot is 14 Field & 14 Hunter Targets both days. This is a casual registration shoot from 7:00 A.M. to 11:00 A.M. both days.

Our 153-acre club is easy to get to, located only 5 minutes from exit 57 of I-81. From the exit, take Rt. 114 west to the light. Turn right on Rt. 944, go approx. 1⁄4 mile and turn left onto Miller’s Gap Road. Go approx. 1 mile and turn right at the “Y” onto Sample Bridge Road. Club is located on the right.

Where To Stay For those coming in from outside the area, you will find all major hotel / motel chains located within 10 miles of the club.

About Our Courses and Us We are members of the PA State Archery Association, Cumberland Valley Archery Winter League, and Penn Dutch league. Our Archery facilities include four (4) 28 target NFAA / PSAA approved field courses with a fifth course that should be completed by early spring 2009. Most of our field shooting lanes are wide enough to accommodate all 4 archers at one time. There are no steep hills to climb; they are like walking on a golf course (grass and all). Each of these fine courses are numbered and color coded at shooting positions and target butts, with signs that have target numbers and all yardages listed for Field, Hunter, and Animal distances. All yardage markers are colored coded and marked to match the yardage signs at each target and are placed in the ground using concrete cylinders and/or steel plates. Our permanent courses have target butts made out of Celotex. Sometimes, depending on the type of arrows shot, this Celotex can leave a small residue on the shaft. Using and arrow lubricant to help prevent sticking and sometime even a steel pot scrubber to remove the residue can be beneficial. Our practice facility is shot from a straight single line with 24 staggered butts that can be shot from 10 to 80 yards We annually host the PSAA Field/Hunter, and Animal championships. This year’s PSAA shoot is the weekend before Nationals, July 18 & 19, and all NFAA members are welcome to attend this shoot and participate in the guest division. This is a Pre-Registration Shoot. For a Registration form and to get more information visit: www.psaa.net.

The Holiday Inn West (717-697-0321) will be serving as the NFAA Host Location. This is located 10 minutes from the club grounds. They are home to the West Shore Hardware Bar (night club), Legends Sports Bar and Restaurant, and the Carlisle Pike Saloon. The rate is $99.00 a night. Be sure to mention NFAA. For those interested in camping, unfortunately NO camping will be available on-site. There are several privately owned campgrounds within 20 miles: Free Spirit Recreation Center, 20 miles (717-582-4443) Harrisburg East Campground, 15 miles (717-939-4331) Western Village RV Park, 15 miles (717-243-1179) Or you may choose one of the local State Parks that offer camping facilities: Colonel Denning State Park, 30 miles (717-776-5272) Gifford Pinchot State Park, 15 miles (717-432-5011) Pine Grove Furnace State Park, 30 miles (717-486-7174) For more information and on-line reservations visit the DCNR website www.DCNR.state.pa.us Special Events On Friday, July 24th, we will be holding a chicken barbecue followed by a Pro-Am shoot under the lights on our Trap Field. In order to make this a successful event, we need to have a rough count of those attending by Wednesday, July 1, 2009. If you are planning to attend the dinner, please send in the form below. With the fee per meal attached. Checks can be made out to MSA. Thank you for your support with this event. Vendors... We will have limited space inside for vendors to set up and promote their items. There will be limited space outdoors for vendors with trailers to set up continued on pg. 59

Proposed changes to the NFAA Constitution and By-Laws were considered by the NFAA State Directors at their meeting February 2009. The following proposals were adopted by the NFAA State Directors and will change the Constitution and By-Laws effective June 1, 2009: Submitted by: Council C-7 Rationale: This will insure that the surviving spouse of a Life Member (where husband and wife are both life members) will receive our publication and proper communication and membership privileges which are always keyed to the head of household. Page 10, Article III, Section A, Para 2.5: Where a husband and wife are both life members of NFAA and the head of household dies, the surviving spouse shall become head of household without charge.

Submitted by: Council C-6 Rationale: For safety and insurance viability – alcohol and shooting don’t mix. While the intent of our rule book is to make shooting facilities alcohol free during shooting, our By-Laws only restrict alcohol during 3-D and outdoor National Sectional events. The two changes below will publish the rule so it will apply to all our games and all our events. Page 27, Article I, Heading: Replace with “The following applies to all NFAA approved rounds.” Page 28, Article I, Section E: No alcoholic beverages may be carried or consumed on any range or practice area during shooting hours at any NFAA sanctioned or owned tournament. Anyone caught breaking this rule will be immediately disqualified and not be allowed to complete the tournament.

Submitted by: NFAA Council C-2 Rationale: Archery is a lifelong sport and all Americans are living longer. In order to provide services to older members, we must be pro-active and consider the national rate of inflation.

Submitted by: Southeast Section SE-5 Rationale: A description of the term “Inside Out” in scoring is needed to clarify the specific use of this scoring term. Two possible understandings are: (1) The arrow does not touch the applicable line, and (2) The arrow does not touch the area outside the line in that the line is manufactured as part of that scoring area. Placing a definition of the term in the rule book should eliminate miss-understandings when we score Inside Out. Page 27, Article I, Section A, Para 7 Proposed change: Inside Out – A scoring term describing an arrow that does not touch the outer ring (separating line) of the applicable scoring area.

Submitted by: Great Lakes Section, GL-2 Rationale: Establish a maximum arrow diameter for NFAA competition. Page 28, Article II, Sectin A, Para 1, Item 6 6. Maximum arrow diameter allowed in NFAA competition will be 0.422 inches with a maximum point diameter of 0.425 inches. Submitted by: New Mexico NM-1 Rationale: At last year’s meeting, the Directors made it legal to have a counterbalance, V-bars and string dampers in the other 2 Bowhunter sub-styles. In the Barebow style it is also legal and since the Bowhunters have to compete against the BB shooters in Vegas, it would only make sense to allow them to have the same advantages. Page 30, Article II, Section E, Para 13 Proposed Change: Allow V bar stabilizers in the nonsighted Bowhunter Division. One straight stabilizer, coupling device included if used, which cannot exceed 12 inches at any time, as measured from the back of the bow, V-bar, counterbalance and string dampeners may be used in the Competitive Bowhunter style. Submitted by: Southeast Section SE-9 Rationale: Unless an individual is the only one registered in a style/division, it is inappropriate to give an award to an individual who is in last place in their shooting category. Page 46, Article IV, Section J, Para 1 Proposed change: Awards at Sectional and National Tournaments shall be given for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in all divisions and styles except where the 2nd or 3rd place individual is in last place in the division or style. Submitted by: Colorado CO-1 Rationale: The Indoor Vegas round was adopted as an official NFAA round but is not listed as an official round for indoor sanctioned leagues. Clubs and affiliated lanes should be allowed to have a sanctioned league using the Vegas round in preparation for the Vegas tournament. Page 66, Article VII, Sections A-F Proposed change: Add Vegas 450 Round to approved games for indoor leagues and offer corresponding score

achievement patches. Submitted by: Mid Atlantic Section MA-1 Rationale: Archery clubs and shops must maintain affiliation with NFAA to remain eligible to host sanctioned tournaments and have coverage with NFAA endorsed insurance. If their state association is unable to provide approval for charter within the timetable set in the constitution, the clubs may loose their charter and their insurance coverage. This item would allow the NFAA headquarters to assist the clubs with charter applications and maintain the state approval requirement now in place. Page 77, Article XVIII, Section A, Para 6 Proposed change: New 6. If a state association is unable to process the charter application within thirty days of receipt, NFAA headquarters is authorized to accept the application and issue the charter. The state association will be contacted for approval and if the application is denied by the state, NFAA will immediately revoke the charter and notify the endorsed insurance carrier of the situation.

some of the statements in the Policy Section regarding instructor certification and requirements require updates to be consistent with the courses as currently structured. The specified certification duration is three years for Basic Instructors and four years for Intermediate Instructors. Also, the certification terms of many Advanced Certified Instructors (ACI) and Master Coaches are soon due to expire and the means of re-certification for Advanced Certified Instructors and Master Coaches needs to be clearly specified. continued on pg. 24

Submitted by: Southeast Section SE-1 Rationale: In 2008 the NFAA President called an emergency meeting after the adjournment of the regular session of the Annual Meeting. In order to do business at an emergency meeting, there must be a method for the decision of that meeting to be implemented... Page 83, Article XX Proposed change: The By-laws may be amended or revised by a two-thirds weighted vote of the Board of Directors as voted at the annual meeting, by mail ballot, or by the Board of Directors at an emergency meeting called by the NFAA President. At an emergency meeting called by the NFAA President, the weighted two-thirds vote must be two-thirds of the full NFAA Board of Directors. Submitted by: NFAA Council C-4 Rationale: To allow the NFAA Directors to do business in a more timely manner. Page 83, Article XX Proposed change: The By-laws may be amended or revised by a two-thirds vote of the Board of Directors, as voted at a physical or electronic meeting or by mail ballot.

All Basic Instructors Certified by the Universal Basic Instructor course must re-certify every three years by attending another Universal Basic Instructor course. Basic Instructors who take an active interest in the sport of archery are encouraged to upgrade to Intermediate level.

Steve Coleman (TX), Dave Blockcolski (OK) Scott Bradford (LA), Lee Gregory (SO Councilman), Garry Randall (MS Alternate)

All Intermediate Instructors Certified by the Universal Intermediate Instructor course must re-certify every four years by attending another Universal Intermediate Instructor course, or by applying to the CI Committee for re-certification and paying a $10.00 re-certification fee, providing that they have been active instructors during the last year of their certification.

als and certification plus the instructor’s fee which may depend on the number of students. The primary purpose of this course is to prepare Basic Instructors to teach youth and beginning archers. This class may be taught by an NFAA Intermediate Instructor, Advanced Instructor, Master Coach or equivalent level USA Archery/NAA instructor.

The minimum age for certification is 15 years old; however, any instructor under 18 years of age must be directly supervised by a certified instructor at least 18 years old who is present during the presentation of any youth archery program.

THE 2009 NATIONAL INDOOR THE 30TH ANNUAL NFAA NATIONAL INDOOR: IT CAN’T GET MUCH BETTER THAN THIS. Connie Calloway (2nd), Christie Colin (3rd) and Holly Larson (4th) break a tie in PFFS, along with Jeff Hunter (3rd) and Steve Boylan (2nd) in SPMFS

n the thirty years the NFAA has held its National Indoor Championship, only four cities have been host: Omaha (8 times), Kansas City (8), Tulsa (7) and Louisville (7). Since the “hotbed” of indoor archery is arguably in the colder, upper Midwest, north of Missouri and Ohio Rivers, it makes sense that the last nine Championships have been held in either Kansas City or Louisville, the last six being in the Kentucky International Convention Center, located in the historic part of downtown Louisville. The facilities are nearly ideal: A well-lighted main hall, which can accommodate the manufacturers’ trade show, food services, and about 650 archers on each line. Prior to this year, the major complaint at every major indoor tournament has been the lack of open practice lanes. Not this year. In addition to eight hours of open practice Friday, there was 30 minutes of practice before the start of each line. This practice was on-the-clock and at the archer’s 26 ARCHERY MAGAZINE

assigned target, and was in addition to the two official practice ends normally allowed. This scheme worked well at the Vegas Shoot, and was equally accepted by almost all the shooters at Louisville. In total, each shooter had between 45 minutes and one hour of official practice before each line. The “new” National Indoor was also streamlined like the 2009 Vegas Shoot — no peripheral Novelty Shoot or Indoor Marked 3-D event. The only extra event this year was the traditional Saturday evening Pro-Am competition, which is more for fun than for monetary award. The National Indoor is the second leg of the World Archery Festival’s 3-Star Tour. It’s also the second step to the Million Dollar Jackpot to the person who shoots a perfect 900 at the Vegas Shoot, a perfect 600 with 120 X’s at the National Indoor, and a perfect 1200 at the WAF’s First Dakota National Bank Archery Classic in June.

Here’s a summary of the matches: • Adult Female Bowhunter Freestyle: Charmain Nelson (600-101X) edged Carol Ayers (598-91X) and Melissa McBride (598-77X). • Adult Male Bowhunter Freestyle: Tim Ewers (600-118X), Bill Hakl (600-117X) and Darrin Davis (600-116X) finished one, two, three. • Adult Female Freestyle: Connie McKensie (600111X) edged Jessica Heeg (600-110X) for the silver bowl, while Samantha Pruitte finished third with a 600 and 107 X’s. • Adult Male Freestyle: Brian Visco, Jeremy Terhune and Michael Jablonski were tied with near-perfect 600 and 119 X’s. Jeremy bettered Michael in the third shoot-off end for the Championship, while Brian Visco finished third. • Senior Male Freestyle: The Championship was also decided by shoot-off between Pat Fleming and Roger Wilson, both with 600 and 110 X’s. Roger won the shoot-off, Pat was second, while Mark Irlbacker (600-109X) was third.

• Senior Male Bowhunter Freestyle: Jim Bath (600 105X)finished first, Bobby Roe (600-103X) second, and Doug Nihart and Merlin Oswald tied for third with 600-98X. • Master Senior Male Freestyle: After about forty years of collecting silver bowls (indoor and outdoor), Dean Pridgen (600-102X) collected another one. Loren Pagel (600-94X) and Clayton Venne (599-97X) were second and third, respectively. While there were “only” seven divisions competing on the morning line, there were fifty-nine divisions shooting the afternoon line. There’s no room here to describe all the matches ... only the close ones. All 2009 National Indoor scores are listed on the NFAA website at www.fieldarchery.com. The first three places are listed in this issue. In the afternoon there were fifteen Championship matches decided by two points or less. Eight Championships were decided by X-count alone, while two other s required shoot-offs for first place. Because prize money is involved, shoot-offs were also required for those tied below first place in the Pro Female, Male and Senior Male Freestyle divisions. Those Championships decided by X-count were: AMFS Champion Terry Terhune shows off his absolutely clean, “inside/out,” shoot-off target • Pro Female Freestyle: Mary Hamm (600-118X, $1,086) over Connie Calloway (600-115X, $590), Christie Colin (600-115X, $417) and Holly Larson (600-115X, $289), Second, third and fourth place were decided by a head-to-head shootoff. • Cub Female Freestyle: Gabrielle Meylan (perfect 600-120X) over Ashley Rogas (600-119X). • Male Crossbow: Terry Butler (600-95X) over Brent Hankins (60092X). • Master Senior Male Crossbow: Dave Clem (569-36X) over Eddie McCrary (569-32X). • Senior Pro Male Freestyle: Richard Smith (600-117X, $1,418) over Steve Boylan (600-116X, $790) and Jeffery Hunt (600-116X, $628).

Smith (597) in SFFS by two points. Prior to the “Big Shoot-off” among the ten perfect Pro men, there was one other exciting shoot-off. Lucas Kenley, Jimmy Bell and Jeremy Elliot ended up tied with 600 and 118 X’s in Cub Male Freestyle. [Note: Jeremy won the 2008 CMFS Championship in a shoot-off.] These three kids certainly showed a lot of poise in front of a large and boisterous crowd. It took three ends, including one with inside/out scoring, before Jimmy Bell emerged Cub Male Freestyle Champion. Lucas and Jeremy shared second place. Now we’re ready for the Big Shoot-off. Ten Pro men were tied with perfect 600’s with 120 X’s. Five of these ten, Reo Wilde, Jedd Greshock, Dave Cousins, Chance Beaubouef, and Grant Schleusner, also shot perfect at the Vegas Shoot, which means 30 ARCHERY MAGAZINE

that they’re eligible to win the Million Dollar Jackpot at Yankton in June. The other five, Jim Despart, Braden Gellenthien, Russell Payne, Chris Eggers and Rodger Willett, although not eligible to win the million bucks, are certainly eligible to win the 2009 NFAA National Indoor Professional Men’s Championship. The $7,500 NFAA award, plus $7,000 (or more) contingency money, for first place is nothing to sneeze at. The first two shoot-off ends were scored the “regular” way. So, naturally all ten Pros remained tied with perfect targets. Starting with the third end, however, scoring is “inside/out,” meaning that an arrow shaft must be entirely within (not touching the line) the X-ring to be scored an “X.” Grant Schleusner and Russell Payne were almost perfect with 25 and 4 X’s.

44 FORM FLAWS—PART II WHEN THINGS GO WRONG Editor’s note: The following is an excerpt from Idiot Proof Archery s promised, here is the next edition of the most common form flaws. In the last issue, we covered 14 form flaws under the headings of Stance, Alignment, and The Bow Hand Grip. In this issue we will cover Anchor and the Bow Arm. In the next issue we will cover both the Finger Release and the flaws associated with the Mechanical Release. The assumption will be made that this is a right-handed archer. The opposite will be true for a left-hander.

ANCHOR 15. Thumb Behind Neck This causes the wrist of the draw arm to kink or bend. Upon release, the wrist recoils and returns to its original straight position, which in turn creates sideways, pre-loaded torque in the wrist

and hand and is, therefore, transferred to the bowstring. Putting the thumb behind the neck also allows the archer to collapse into the back of the neck, thereby negating any back tension the archer may have had. A straight, relaxed and expanded wrist/forearm/elbow unit (in line with the arrow) is the most forgiving, “Idiot Proof” method in archery. 16. Head and Neck Too Far Forward As in the “Z formation” mentioned in #4, when the head and neck are pushed forward into the bow string for peep alignment, it creates tension in the neck. This is not conducive to consistent shot execution. The head should be upright and relaxed, and only slightly tilted to the side to accommodate peep alignment. The string should just touch the tip of the nose. (Archers that wear glasses may have to touch the side of their nose in order to see past the frames.) If you can’t reach the string with your nose without tipping your head forward, either your draw length is too short or, more likely, your anchor is too low.

with the string without bending your head forward, try raising your anchor farther up the side of your face until the string naturally comes up under your nose. Finger shooters tend to use fingertips in contact with the corner of their mouth. This is not as solid as locking the bones of the string hand into a place on the jawbone. Different shaped faces accommodate different anchor points. Find one that is comfortable, relaxed and touching at least two places on your face (plus the front and rear sight aligned), like your hand locked into the jawbone and your nose touching the string. 19. Moving Lips To Touch Kisser Button A kisser button is used instead of a peep and really shouldn’t be “kissed”! Moving your lips over to “kiss” a kisser button is not a consistent anchor, because the lips can be moved into almost any position. If you insist on using a kisser button, make sure it is anchored into something solid, such as the corner of an upper tooth . . . the lower jaw moves. 20. Floating Anchor—Draw Hand Doesn’t Touch Face Your draw hand should be locked in on the side of your face where you can feel the bones in your hand mesh or interlock with the bones in your face (jaw). Most archers find placing one or two knuckles behind the jawbone is solid and easily repeatable, regardless of whether you shoot with your fingers or a mechanical release.

17. String Too Tight Into Face at Anchor Pulling the string into the skin of the face or side of the cheek causes left and right string oscillation (resulting in left and right misses) and inconsistent anchor. Adjust your draw length, release rope, string loop, and/or anchor up or down until the string just touches your nose.

Thumb behind neck 36 ARCHERY MAGAZINE

April / May 2009

18. String Doesn’t Touch Nose at Anchor A solid and consistent anchor is imperative for good shooting, and is especially true when shooting up and down hills. The more points of reference you have, the more consistent your shots will be. (I recommend at least four.) Your scope or pin on target is one anchor . . . your eye looking through the peep is a second anchor . . . the tip of your nose on the string is a third . . . and the knuckles of your draw hand solidly touching and/or locked into your jawbone is a fourth. A kisser button is an optional anchor, but it’s not necessary if you use a peep sight. Note: If you have trouble touching the tip of your nose

BOW ARM 21. Bow Shoulder Too High This is one of the most common flaws that I see. One of the reasons for this is because a lot of us learned archery on a recurve bow, or we were taught by a recurve shooter that needed all the muscle they could get to draw the bow back. This bad form is passed down from shooter to shooter. Another reason is pulling too much bow weight. This causes the deltoid muscle on the top of your bow shoulder to be used to push the bow out, and is tense at full draw (like some recurve shooters), which in turn, causes the sight to shake. The bow shoulder should be down and locked in the socket but relaxed. It should be level with the other shoulder. This is bone-to-bone form, as opposed to using muscles to keep the bow pushed forward toward the target. If it is done properly, the upper arm bone (humerus) will slip down and lock into the shoulder joint and the shoulder blade in the back will actually jut out. All of the bones in the arm unit including the hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder should all line up. This produces a much steadier sight picture and will be much less tiring, because you are using bones to hold the bow, not muscles. 22. Bow Shoulder Rolled Into The Bow Similar to #21, this causes tension and excessive sight movement, which can lead to anxiety, fear of missing and later to punching and/or snapshooting. It is also hard to duplicate, and usually will break down over time. It is a symptom that the bow is being held with muscles instead of bone, and the shoulder is not down and locked. It also frequently goes hand in hand with shooting with a bent bow elbow. See #23. 23. Bow Arm Elbow Bent This technique has been mastered by a very few archers, but most shooters will find it almost impossible to duplicate the bend in the elbow, exactly the same way every shot, especially shooting up and down hills. Sometimes the degree of bend in the elbow causes a slightly different draw length and the archer can’t really tell if he is exactly against the wall or slightly into the valley of the bow, from shot to shot (unless you use a clicker or marks on your cables that ensure the same draw length). Now the bow is, once again, being held with muscles, because you must also use the deltoid (shoulder muscle) to support this “bent elbow style.” This can cause a shaky sight picture. Also, shooting with a bent elbow probably requires two to three times more practice than shooting with a straight, but relaxed bow arm.

Don’t “kiss” a kisser button!

44 FORM FLAWS—PART II: WHEN THINGS GO WRONG

24. Bow Arm Elbow Locked And Tense This is the opposite of #23. If the elbow is hyper-extended, tense and locked, it also can create tension in the shot and movement in the sight. It is important that this elbow remain relaxed, but not bent. You may find it easiest to pull the bow with the elbow locked, but once you get to full draw, “unlock” it but don’t bend it! All bones from the lower part of the hand all the way up to the shoulder socket should be aligned as much as possible, to support both the mass and draw weight of the bow. 25. Bow Wrist Bent This is when the archer bends the wrist out away from the midline of the bow, sometimes in an attempt to keep the string from hitting his bow arm. As in #12, the handle of the bow is too far out on to the thumb where only soft tissue, not bone, is holding the bow, plus there is excess tension in the bent wrist. This shooting position will almost always give the right-handed archer pre-loaded right bow torque (resulting in right arrows). Again, the bow wrist should be straight and relaxed and the bow handle should contact your hand at the base of the thumb.

26. Bow Arm Fully Extended If the bow is pushed to the full extension of the bow arm, all the way toward the target, then upon explosion, the bow hand and arm unit has no more forward extension available to expend energy from the bow. This is known as “pre-loaded” torque. What happens is, for right-handers, the bow will kick or swing to the left immediately upon release, before the arrow clears the rest, causing left arrows. This is frequently a symptom of too long of a draw. As stated in #21, the bow shoulder should be down and locked into the socket but relaxed. Upon explosion, the bow arm will jump forward along with the bow, tocontinued on pg. 61

Quit Aiming!

ONCE AT AN NFAA INDOOR NATIONALS, one of my students had been battling it out for first place. The score was tied with only fifteen arrows remaining. Noticing that his rhythm was slowing down, I called him over and instructed, “Quit aiming and shoot form!” He knew exactly what I meant, as he proceeded to capture the title. When a competition heats up and the scores are close, archers tend to place more pressure on themselves, often trying to be too precise with the shot placement. By doing this, they add several seconds to their normal shooting rhythm and cause a breakdown in their form. Usually, the added time results in a weaker follow-through with the bow arm producing a low or low-right shot. When over-aiming happens, the bow arm loses forward pressure and more sight movement occurs. A weak shot is likely to follow. Many archers and some coaches put far too much emphasis on the aiming process. Put the pin on the target; then let it float and shoot a good, strong shot. Aiming is over-rated. If the pin is floating on the desired impact point, a strong shot with your normal form will hit the mark. The problem of over-aiming starts when ones

SWASEY DR.

I would love to share my adventure in the tree stand. My husband, Buck, and I have been playing the archery game for over forty years. Hunting, field rounds, target, 3-D, shot—every style you can name. We have owned and operated an archery shop, and we have been officers at local, state and national levels. I am a level 4 national archery coach all because we wanted to learn to shoot deer with a bow. When we started hunting, deer were not as plentiful as they are today. By the fifth year, I was starting to become a little discouraged. When my birthday rolled around, my husband bought me a tree stand; prior to that we would just climb a tree and sit on a limb. On the morning of my birthday, I climbed up my new stand for the first time. About an hour later, two deer appeared and started my way, giving me a broadside shot. I was able to harvest my first deer with a bow! That began the annual hunt for the “birthday deer.” Some years the birthday deer came a few days early or late. Some years they were pretty nice bucks. And some years, meat deer. You know I shot a doe so the herd wouldn’t grow! This year we have two grandsons who are first-year bow hunters. It was an all-out effort for them to get their deer before basketball practice began! As the rut—and my birthday—approched, they had each had a shot but hadn’t connect. Finally, the big day arrived: My 65th birthday. My husband bought me a new tree stand! A week late, the new stand was up and the rut was in full swing. It was a cold Sunday afternoon, just a week from gun season. I was up in my new tree stand and a nice 10-point came by at a fast walk looking for a date, but instead he became grandma’s birthday deer. I’m proud to be fit enough to still draw 46 lbs., climb trees, and teach my grandchildren to hunt, to track, and to know the pleasure of having an arrow find its mark. I hope to be at this a while longer—I have seven grand-

This allows the arrow to clear the bow before the arm reaches the “stops” (end of the arm extension) and then swings to the left . . . which is a normal part of follow-through, because the shoulder is in a ball socket. I hope these help you identify and correct some of the flaws in your form. In the next issue, we will cover the last two sections of form flaws, the Finger Release and Mechanical Releases, which are the last 18 form flaws of the 44 in this 3 part series. ■

VANES

For maximum stability and head-turning accuracy, nothing spins a broadheadtipped arrow faster than QuikSpin vanes from N.A.P. QuikSpin’s revolutionary patented “kicker” rotates arrows up to 300% faster than feather helicals. And Standard Vane faster spin means tighter groups and better accuracy. Durable, all-weather reliable and easy to apply with any standard fletching machine in straight, offset right or right helical fletch. QuikSpin Vane The unique combination of our patented kicker and micro-grooves stabilizes an arrow in less than half the distance of a conventional vane or feather.

thinking process is centered on score or winning. Such pressure often begins days before a tournament and intensifies after the competition gets underway. Focusing on scores and first place is an excellent blueprint for a poor performance. Where should you direct your attention? Picture yourself shooting your best possible form. This process will build a positive image, help you relax, and produce a more excellent shot. Many archers put their confidence in the sight picture, not their form. When they get nervous and see sight movement, their game begins to deteriorate. Very few archers are steady enough to “lock on” to the x-ring and have the pin stay there. They keep waiting for the shot, wanting the pin to hold on the mark. Before long, they have added several seconds to their normal shooting rhythm, which allows the back pressure to decrease. The stage is set for an ineffective shot. How can you remedy the problem? Trust your

form, not your sight. Quit aiming! Hold the pin as close to the desired impact point as possible and let the pin float. If you tighten muscles in an attempt to guide the sight pin, the effect of this tension will be reflected in the shot execution. Concentrate and make sure you produce a shot with perfect form. If the form is good, the result will be much better than if you had continued aiming. Prove this idea to yourself so you will trust your form. Place a 40 centimeter target at 40 yards and shoot twenty arrows for score. Now, repeat the process, but let the pin float as you shoot a rhythmic shot and concentrate on perfect form. The scores should reflect where to place your trust. The next time you find yourself in a pressure situation, you should have the confidence to make a good shot. Instead of worrying about erratic pin movement, the focus is on perfect shot execution. The confidence and trust in your form will help you perform like a champion. ■
