THE 2008 NATIONAL INDOOR

Eleven Shoot Perfect at Louisville. Five Advance to Million Dollar Jackpot. article and photos by Paul Davison

W

e’re starting to feel at home here. This was the fifth consecutive year that the NFAA National Indoor has been held at the Kentucky International Convention Center in the historic part of downtown Louisville. The well-lighted main hall can easily accommodate the manufacturers’ trade show, food services and more than 150 target butts. With three lines per day, this means that more than 1800 shooters (and their families) can eat, shop and fling a few arrows, all at one place. Moreover, with three hotels connected by skyway to the Convention Center, there’s little need to venture outside the entire weekend. The middle of March is Spring Break time for most families. So, if you missed coming to Louisville this year, remember to mark your calendar now for next year’s Spring Break — March 14-15, 2009. Bring the family, too. Although the National Indoor is officially held on Saturday and Sunday, there is much to do on Friday, starting at 1:00 pm. Check-in and late registration begins; the Trade Show opens; and all registrants may practice at their

leisure, or shoot the new 3-Star Tour Novelty Round, which has replaced the Indoor Marked 3-D event. The Novelty Round consists of five, three-arrow ends at 40 yards, using a standard Vegas target face. Because of limited indoor space, it was held outside at Las Vegas. Here, again because of limited indoor space, the Novelty Round was held in the enclosed loading dock area, adjacent to the main shooting hall. Also on Friday, there’s the popular “Practice with the Pros” from 4:00-6:00 pm, where all kids under 18 can shoot alongside their heroes. Of the more than 1300 registered shooters, there were close to 200 NFAA Pros, 252 in the three Junior age groups, plus another 31 in the new NASP Division, and 192 non-professionals in the two Senior age groups. An additional 95 archers shot the Novelty Round at least once, and 214 archers paid $25 each to shoot in the annual Stanislawski Pro-Am Saturday evening. The National Indoor is the second leg of the continued on pg. 6

A room-full of shooters, friends and family wait for the Award Ceremony to start.

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 900 with 90X’s at April’s Stanislawski Open in Hartford, CT. Fifteen Pro men were eligible after the Vegas Shoot, but three of these did not register at Louisville. As we’ll see later, nine of the starting “perfect” twelve made it through Saturday

still perfect, and five of these nine made it through Sunday. There were also six Pro men who were perfect at Louisville, but who weren’t perfect at Las Vegas. Got it? The first round of the 2008 NFAA Indoor Championship got underway Saturday at 8:00 am, 11:30 am and 3:00 pm. No less than twenty-four perfect 300-60X’s were shot on Saturday ... one by Chris Berry in AMBHFS and the rest by the Pro men (PMFS). Moreover,

2008 National Indoor Pro Freestyle Champion, Chance Beaubouef.

The Adult Male Freestyle line on Sunday

nearly 400 shooters posted 300’s with 59 or fewer X’s in twenty different style/divisions (including crossbow). There were six fingershooters and thirty-six Juniors who shot 300, including one by Zachary Brister, CMFSL, who’s both a junior and a finger-shooter. With this many near-perfect scores and with twenty “unlimited” freestyle contests, one might expect that there weren’t many runaway leaders after Saturday’s round. Some of those with comfortable leads were Candy Wilson (AFBB, 17 points), Erica Strassman (AFBHFSL, 19 points), Rick Stark (AMBB, 9 points), Jordan Craig (CMFSLR/L, 21 points), Teke Phillips (SFFSL, 17 points), Joseph Maurin (SMBB, 10 points), Lenny Lattimer (SMTrad, 25 points), Ben Nguyen-Zhu (YAMFSLR/L, 13 points) and Bryanna Daugherty (YFFSL, 19 points). The casual Novelty Round competition ended Saturday evening. In the Trophy Division, Randy Hinkelman was the Louisville winner with a score of 147 out of possible 150. In the Money Division, Jim Butts (150, $500) edged Tim Gillingham (150, $250) by three X’s in Men Unlimited; Georgiana Braden (148, $250) won Women Unlimited; and Bill Lewis (147, $250) won Bowhunter Freestyle.

Saturday evening’s premier event is always the Stanislawski Pro-Am. The two-person teams are randomly selected. Since there are more amateurs than Pros, each Pro may have more than one teammate. The special 3-spot Pro-Am target face looks like a black and white NFAA Field face, but is sized like the Vegas 3-spot target face, and is scored 5-4-3. With a $5350 purse at stake, the prize money was distributed among the first 25 places. It should be obvious that there’re no big bucks to be made here, just a lot of fun. Pro Nathan Brooks and teammate Josh Binger scored 300 with 56X’s and split $883. Scott Starnes and Bryan Lovely (300-53X’s, $519) were second, and Robert Wolfram and Ben Blevins (300-49X’s, $433) captured third place. After subtracting their entry fees, the 25th place team split about $20. With twenty-three Pro Male Freestyle shooters going into Sunday’s round with perfect scores, a shoot-off in this division was almost a sure thing. It was a mild surprise, however, that the only other shoot-off for an Adult Championship was in Adult Male Freestyle, where Bradley Baker and Jacob Phelps were continued on pg. 8

tied with 600 and 118 X’s. [There was also a shoot-off for the Cub Male Freestyle Championship, noted below.] Because money is involved, those in the Pro ranks have also had a shoot-off when tied for second or third place. This year there was a second place shoot in PFFS, and a third place shoot-off in SPMFS. These three shoot-offs were conducted simultaneously just before the “big dance” involving eleven Pro Male Freestyle shooters. After four shoot-off ends, Jacob Phelps had edged Bradley Baker for the AMFS Championship. In the PFFS shoot-off, it took only two ends for Christie Colin to grab second place money ($575) from Holly Larsen ($422). Jamie Van Natta (600-116X, $1056) had won the PFFS Championship earlier. The Senior Pro Male Freestyle shoot-off for third place also took just two ends. Dwight Snodgrass ($568), Dee Wilde ($422) and Tom Coblentz ($374) finished third, fourth and fifth, respectively. Earlier, Steve Boylan (600-116X, $1,285) had won the SPMFS Championship, while Richard Smith (600-114X, $715) captured second place. Eleven Pro men were tied with perfect 600-

120X’s at the end of Sunday’s indoor round: Nathan Brooks, Bob Eyler, Reo Wilde, Gary Smith, Jr., Braden Gellenthien, Duane Price, Jedd Greshock, Chance Beaubouef, Joshua Schaff, Dave Cousins and Darrin Christenberry. Brooks (‘04 and ‘05), Gellenthien (‘06), Price (‘07), Beaubouef (‘03) and Cousins (‘99) are former National Indoor Champions. Greshock, Gellenthien, Eyler, Cousins and Beaubouef were also perfect at the 2008 Vegas Shoot, and therefore eligible for the Million Dollar Jackpot at Hartford’s Stanislawski Open. The eleven man shoot-off proceeded smoothly and quite quickly. After two ends, Gary Smith dropped an “X” and finished eleventh ($487). After the third shoot-off end, seven more were eliminated — Vegas Champ Dave Cousins finished tenth ($522), Reo Wilde and Darrin Christenberry shared eighth place ($600 each) and Joshua Schaff, Jedd Greshock, Braden Gellenthien and Bob Eyler shared fourth place ($965 each). The top three places were all decided after the fourth shoot-off end. Nathan Brooks dropped three “inside/out” X’s and finished third ($1,500), while Duane

Price dropped two for second place ($3,000). Chance Beaubouef dropped just a single I/O X, and became the NFAA National Indoor Pro Male Freestyle Champion for the second time. His prize money was a tidy $7,500.00. With sixty-three styles/divisions, it’s virtually impossible for us to describe all the close matches in this issue. In addition to the two Championship shoot-offs described above, there were thirteen other Championship awards decided by X-count. Five other Championship matches were decided by a mere single point. Moreover, virtually every Flight award, especially in the Freestyle divisions, was determined in the same manner. There are no tie-breaking shoot-offs at the Flight level. Duplicate awards are presented. Here are the Championships decided by X-count: 1. CMFS. Jeremy Elliott over Josh Ryan after two shoot-off ends. Both shot 600 with 119 X’s. 2. YMFS. Garrett Ayersman (600-116X) over Mitchell Scott (600-112X). 3. YAMFS. Frank Couse III (600-114X) over Will Thompson and Kristofer Schaff (600113X). 4. SMFSL. Rod Miller (592-78X) over Roger Pruitt, Sr. (592-68X). 5. SMFS. Ellis Gibson (600-111X) over Jim Burns (600-103X). 6. SMBHFS. Jim Bath (600-99X) over Gary Munson (600-96X). 7. PMFSL. Jeff Fabry (600 -116X) over Graham Cofield (600-104X). 8. MSMFS. Jim Goins (599-97X) over Loren Pagel (599-92X). 9. MSMBB. Dave Clem (553-40X) over Charley Washburn (553-37X). 10. CFFS. Katie Williams (600-113X) over Molly Veith (600-109X). 11. AMTrad. Paul Vogel (529-31X) over Mike

Frizzell (529-21X). 12. AMBHFS. Chris Berry (600-118X) over Lynn Hoch (600-115X). 13. AFFS. Jane Mowbray (600-107X) over Connie McKenzie (600-113X). Here are the Championships decided by a single point: 1. YMFSLR/L. Daniel McLaughlin (552) over Sean McLaughlin (551). 2. YAFFS. Samantha Pruitte (600) over Victoria Rogers and Kacey Eggers (599). 3. MSFFS. Rosie Pridgen (596) over Marilyn Venne (595). 4. AMFSL. Matt Carmin (596) over Chris Coleman (595). 5. AFTrad. Susan Hanson (520) over Diane Elliott (519).

T

his past winter I set off on an extremely fun journey to a place I didn’t even know existed. It was a lost place, like something you see on a Survivor show. A desolate island that is unique and challenging. The discovery came from a tip from one of my close friends Darin Cooper. He knew of a friend that had one time been to this place and had hunted. The experience was one that he recommended highly. We were both itchy to have a winter hunt and needed to let a broadhead fly. We both didn’t need much to be convinced on trying anything that involved hunting. After the description of this hunt we were sold. All I needed was a name and number and I would investigate getting onto this place. Darin got me the number and I made some calls. After an evening on the phone I had everything all set and locked in to hunt on the place we now call Ram-bo Island located in the middle of the Great Salt Lake. I got excited about the hunt and after a few days on my phone I had several good friends and hunting companions wanting to go as well. All of us were in need to hunt something again. The long winter months had already set its toll on all of us. The hunt was scheduled to happen on the weekend but I

decided to fly in early and meet with close friend Darin. A few extra days would give us enough time to meet the guides and research this place. I needed to find out what everyone should pack and plan for. The directions were simple. Pack light, dress warm, be sighted in good and be on the airport runway at 7 a.m. The hunt usually entails a fly in with a super cub bush plane. I don’t know about you, but hearing words like that tend to get me juiced up and ready to rock and roll. I immediately got on the horn and called the rest of the crew so that they would be prepared when they flew in to meet us Friday morning. Just like with any hunt I was constantly checking the weather forecast. To be honest it was changing several times throughout the day. There was a winter storm system on the horizon. It was still undetermined on when and where it was going to hit. The guide called me and asked if I had been watching the weather. He too was a little concerned. The winds were supposed to get high and the rain would eventually change over to snow. It appeared that it would start out beautiful but eventually turn into a real mess. I was persistent on him and gave him no way out of letting us go. I said we were all tough guys and a little weather wouldn’t keep us out of the Archery Magazine June / July 2008 21

game. Friday morning I met everyone at the airport and took them to the local shooting range. Everyone’s gear made it which was a definite bonus. Like most hunting trips we immediately had a little shooting session and double checked all the marks on our sights. Everyone was honed in and we wrapped of with some friendly wagering on some long shots. My bubby Eric nicknamed “Gudge” was the man on the range that day. I was totally impressed with his skills on long range shooting. The clock struck five and we loaded up and went over to pick of Darin from work and headed up to his place. I pride myself on being a camp chef so that morning before I left I whipped up a little slow cook surprise. When everyone walked into Darin’s house the aroma of some tri tip barbeque made a lot of friendly faces. We claimed rooms and started organizing gear as we fed or appetites with my Tri Tip. Later that evening the guide showed up to the house and met all of the crew. He said he had some good news and bad news. He said he had flown out the day earlier to check everything and see how much snow was there. The bad news was that the ground was too wet and the bush plane would not be able to land us on there. The good news was that he had found a shrimp boat captain that would be about to drive us out and drop us off! I was relieved and bummed all at once. I really liked the thought of the plane ride across the lake and dropping us off, but the boat sounded equally as cool. That night ended late and time in the bed was limited at best. That next morning there was definitely some frost on the pumpkin. It was one of those mornings that were dead calm but bone chillingly cold. I loaded on another layer of Under Armor because I knew that ride out on the boat would make a guys teeth rattle. None of the guys would be willing to show concern in front of the other. So like “real” men we all just piled into the truck and made way to the boat landing. I knew it was cold and knew the weather forecast was calling for “nice”, followed by “not so good” and ending with “take cover”. With that in mind I crammed several days’ worth of my Wilderness Athlete bars and hydration packets into my Badlands pack. Darin and I both were preparing for a nights sleep out on this place incase the boat would make it out to retrieve us that night. Most of our Double D hunting crew was there. We had the cameras and planned to capture every moment on film for the new DVD. The truck ride out was a total slop bucket. We had to take this little 22 Archery Magazine June / July 2008

continued hidden snake road along the North East rim of the lake. There was mud all over the place and this boat landing was back in the middle of no where. The only traffic that the muddy road had seen was the eighteen wheelers that role out the shrimp all season long. The sun was just beginning to peak the mountains and the reflections off the water were breath taking. For the eastern crew it was the first time they had got to experience such western beauty. We had to stop for a few photos of the scenery and then quickly made way to the dock and started unloading gear. There was no doubt this trip was just what the doctor ordered for curing cabin fever. The boat ride out was like something you would see on an Alaskan tourist brochure. The distant lake was surrounded by all the snow covered peaks of the Rockies. The sun wasn’t just bright; it was bright with an assortment of colors. We huddled in a group and captured the moments on film and cameras. We could see the island and our anticipation grew as we approached it. The boat ride was maybe about half an hour long and the water was fairly smooth going out. The wind was definitely starting to pick up and the boat captain told us that if the wind comes from a certain direction that the waves would be too high for him to return to get us. It was nervous hearing that but we quickly bailed off the boat and unloaded the gear. This Island now called Rambo Island is a little over 6 miles long, a mile and a half wide and about a thousand feet in elevation. The terrain was partly covered in snow, with rolling hills and plenty of steep jagged cliffs. This island is home for a variety of rams that have been there for who knows how long. They are extremely weary and any sign of trouble and they are gone without hesitation. We had spotted a heard of rams along the west face as we were approaching in the boat. But just the sign of man and they were on their way out of sight. It was at that point that we realized that we needed to be cautious and hunt these rams wisely. After some thinking we decided on placing groups at each end of the island and work towards the middle. That way the rams would eventually congregate in the center if perimeter stalks were blown. My group took the west shoreline and headed south to the opposite end of the island. Darin took his group and started onto the North Slope. We covered maybe a mile when I spotted a ram with a group of mews. We hit a little crevasse and made our way up it onto a flat. The ground was bare there and the

only option for cover was a large sage bush. I took the camera and got in front since I was all leafed up in Max 1. My friend Thomas was in line to shoot first so he was positioned off set behind me. This group fed right to us and then held up at about 90 yards. We sat absolutely motionless because I know from experience that sheep and goats typically have dynamite eyesight. It seemed that everything was going to be text book. They kept coming slowly and bedding down and then feeding again. But briefly I felt the wind brush the back of my neck and within seconds the ram was alerted and gone. We all looked at each other and realized these rams were not going to be dumb and we needed to exercise every amount of caution that we would any other game animal. We started to make our way down to the beach again and the third party of my group “Gudge” spotted a really nice loan ram feeding up the shoreline. The wind was totally in our favor and the shadows of the crevasse were perfect to get down low and cover some ground. We were in an absolutely perfect place and the ram fed slowly along the shoreline. Since the snow was still partly covering the island I believe the ram was taking to the only bit of green that was new and edible along the shore. Gudge staying positioned high and with camera rolling I stayed along side Thomas and slid on our backs to the bottom of the muddy crevasse. The ram made his way perfectly into range and Thomas let the Axis Full Metal Jacket fly right into the boiler room. It was obvious that the shot was perfect as the ram performed a awesome front summersault. We were totally excited and I couldn’t have been happier for everyone. Gudge filmed his first hunt and Thomas got his first western kill. We took some good photos and moved his ram into the shade. As the day went on there were more and more opportunities and missed opportunities. The fowl weather blew in for most of the day and the wind was absolutely fierce. There was rain, snow, clouds and sun. All and all we got to see everything the weatherman talked about. At one point we had to seek refuge inside a large deadfall to let the weather pass. We huddled close to make the most of keeping warm. It wasn’t all time wasted because we had some good laughs and humor trying to make the most of the situation. We had on every layer we had in the packs and it still wasn’t enough for the wind chill. Later on in the day the weather broke for the better and Gudge took a nice ram that was standing

RAMBO ISLAND

about 40 degrees above him. I was impressed with the Oklahoma boy that made a western shot like that at 60 yards. For my sheep I was teamed up with my normal team of Darin and Dan’L. Darin had spotted a few rams bedded on top of one of the jagged peaks. One of the rams was a ram bole with large full curls. I didn’t give it a seconds thought. It looked challenging and the terrain laid perfect for a stalk. We talked strategy and we made our way up through some rocks and cautiously watched every step along the shale. The rams looked skittish through the spotting scope and no one was even close by. I knew if the shale started to slide then they would be long gone. I did my best to tip toe, avoid shale and also keep close watch for cactus. A few hundred yards before the peak I started looking with extreme caution through my glass. I had thought that we had about another 200 yards to go before we were at the ledge they were bedded on. However, I was wrong. The rams had started feeding whilst we were working our way up the slope and had quickly closed the distance between us. Luckily I spotted ones horn through a tuff of grass and quickly signaled for Darin and Dan’L to hit the deck. We were on our bellies fast and I was doing my best to play charades and give them some hand signals letting them know what I saw, where they were moving and where we needed to go. Things happened fast and we belly crawled to the first bit of rock we could hide in. The rams were moving above us I had thought but I was somewhat unsure. It was one of those moments when you are trying to watch two different directions at once. They could have moved around below us just as easy. I had 100 tons of rocks blocking my view of what the rams were Archery Magazine June / July 2008 23

doing. We were in the shadows and I thought we blended in nicely. While still on my knees I peaked around the rocks. As soon as one eye cleared the rock I realized he was literally right there! I inched my head back around the rock and signaled for the camera to start rolling. I drew back and awaited him to step in the opening. He was so close that every one of my 5 pins was tucked behind the shoulder. I only awaited the camera man to tell me he was ready for me to shoot. Dan’l whispered the words “wait, you are in the way”. Meanwhile the ram is locked onto me trying to decide whether I am a rock, bush or predator. I thought I’m busted! Dan’L moved slightly around from behind my shoulder and still I waited. It seemed like a minute, but it was literally just seconds. By this point I thought it was all over but I wanted it all on tape. Finally I hear the words “take him” and just like that I let it rip. Impact was obvious and high fives were in order! We were all really jacked. It is always exciting to take something with a bow but to do it with good friends at your side takes it to a whole new level. We made our way around this peak to where we 24 Archery Magazine June / July 2008

continued

were following sign along the ground. My ram had went down and then wrapped around the bottom side of the highest peak. It was one of those track jobs were every corner you turn you are expecting to see your animal. Once the terrain flatted out again I spotted my ram laid up out in the open. I took one more look of assurance and then asked Darin to look. We all started looking with our Binoculars and then questioned if it was my ram or not? First off it was alive and secondly the tips of the horns were slightly busted on this ram. So I confirmed it was defiantly a different one and looked at Darin and said “looks like that one is yours”! Back to square one yet again. We checked the wind and picked a point of attach for this one. The ram was facing away and the wind was coming across. Darin used what little cover there was and got to about 60 yards pretty quick. At that point we had great footage and I was signaling to shoot. I guess Darin wanted to see how far he could push it though. He just kept crawling and crawling. Dan’L and I were at about 100 yards behind, propped up perfectly with the camera and tripod. I kept saying he’s getting to close... He’s busted... No way...

I guess Darin wanted to out do me or something because it got to the point where I was just laughing to myself. There was zero cover and if the ram would have turned his head one time it would have all been for not. However, the ground was moist, the wind was high and the ram’s eyes were fixed on something the opposite direction. Finally Darin got to the place he wanted to be. (Too close in my opinion given the situation). I saw him bring his fist up to his mouth and blow into his release hand which is always a sure sign to me that he is about to execute. Sure enough he loaded the string and came to full draw. The ram made a jump and then another and it was all over. He had dropped a 125 right behind the shoulder. I made a sprint out to Darin and gave him a Tom Cruise power hug. There was no doubt that we did work on that island. This was absolutely the best way it could have happened. The guide told us there were two large ram boles’ out there and that the horns were the largest. What are the chances of finding them within an hour apart? I guess it was meant to be for the Double D’s to double down on the double curl Rambo’s. We really did have a variety of situations and opportunities. We had a lot of photos to take and we knew the shrimp boat would be on time. We had to scramble and each of the guys had something to do. One guy was making trips with packs; others were in charge of cutting and packing while some were loading gear near the boat landing. Luckily for us the weather turned out for the best at the end of the day. I was so impressed with this experience because I literally felt like I was in Alaska or on some desolate

RAMBO ISLAND

place somewhere. The shrimp boat came in at sunset and we loaded all of gear and rewards onto the boat. It was all about high fives, hugs and smiles on the ride home. A few of the guys didn’t fill tags but it wasn’t because of the lack of chances. The wind was harsh and some of the shots were longer than average. I know one thing is for sure. Next time I get the mid year blues I will be heading back to Rambo Island to quench my thirst for outdoor excitement. I don’t think that I stand alone with my feelings in relation to hunting. I make the most I can out of the regular hunting season and love every minute of it. But by the time the regular season closes I am ready for a break. I get the same feeling when competing. I can stay focused and sharp for several months at a time, but once it drags much past that I need to step away for a short period of time. But I love to hunt and to compete just like all of you reading and after a short time away I am craving another taste again. This was a long hard winter in most parts of the States and the cabin fever was more than I could bear. I was much in need of a hunting excursion into the wilderness again. Rambo Island was my escape. Thanks to all of my buddies that were there. Count me in anytime! Best of luck to everyone in the woods and on the range, —John Dudley www.dudleyarchery.info www.ddbowhunting.com ■

WHAT TO EXPECT

Chuck Cooley

ye exams are important for everybody because it allows the doctor to evaluate not only your vision but the overall health of the eye. It is known that there is generally no way for the patient to tell when there might be a problem because there is no real way to feel pain IN the eye. Externally, yes an injury can be felt but if there are issues like glaucoma or retinal disease there is no pain, just the possibility of permanent loss of vision. Routine and regular eye exams can help to discover these issues and treatment may be available long before they become problematic. The reason for an exam should not be based on how you think you see right now. It should be treated like “preventative maintenance” for your vision. Generally it’s recommended that an eye exam be performed once a year for most people. In some cases the time frame is extended to two years but the general consensus is that annually is an optimum time frame to allow the doctor to monitor internal heath as well as refractive errors. I also recommend that once you start a relationship with one doctor you try to stay with that practitioner so that a history is developed. It’s not required that you get glasses or contacts from that office but at least the medical side is consistent. To get an eye exam you have to see either an Ophthalmologist or an Optometrist. In some states an Optician has the qualifications to do refraction, but not exams regarding the heath of the eye or treat disease. Who Does What? Ophthalmologists are medical doctors (MD’s). Not only can they refract but they can diagnose and treat eye disease and structural or physical problems, but they can perform corrective surgeries etc. If you choose to see an Ophthalmologist I recommend a smaller practice where the work is predominantly done by the doctor themselves. I’ve never been a fan of the high patient volume or “technician” route. In this scenario the patient is run through a battery of machines run by techs that will perform much of the diagnostic work and then have the MD review and finalize the findings. Ultimately it can 26 Archery Magazine June / July 2008

from an eye exam

be accurate and most of the time it is sufficient but in archery the demanding nature of our vision requirements I prefer the “one on one” route where the patient can make a solid decision and the doctor can make solid assessments based on personal patient interaction. Optometrists (OD’s) are also doctors but cannot do surgeries. They can perform many of the same tasks as an MD such as refraction, fitting of contacts and spectacles, diagnosis and treatment of certain eye diseases. Generally an OD will be involved in co-management care or post-op care for many surgeries including LASIK, cataracts, implants etc. In the rare case of the OD discovering something significant the patient would be referred out to an MD for treatment. In my opinion, Optometrists generally are recognized as better at refractions due to the nature of their specialty. This point might be argued by the MD but they are generally recognized as better at the medical aspect, so call it even. Ultimately my opinion boils it down to this. If I need a really, really good refraction I want to see an Optometrist in a smaller office setting who will have time to deal with me directly for 20-30 min with the full exam and refraction

done personally by the OD. If I need surgery or have something significant to deal with then I’m off to the MD. An Optician will use the refraction provided during the exam to fabricate a pair of glasses. Occasionally the optician can fit contacts as well but most often that is reserved for the doctor. Again the optician should be asking several “lifestyle” questions to determine how you use your eyes on a day to day basis. This will include lifestyle questions for hobbies and sports, work related questions about how you “see”. This information helps them determine what style of frame and lens you should be using for each activity. Often times for best performance this might mean multiple pairs of glasses. The Exam An eye exam is a series of tests to determine several things about your eyes. The good news is that it doesn’t hurt and you don’t have to study for it. During the initial portion of the exam you and the doctor or his assistant will discuss basic history and what if any your visual complaints are. This will lead to a quick look at the eye with a light to make sure the basic external functions are all working properly, and then a check of your visual acuity with and without the current glasses. They may start with a visual fields test. This test determines your blind spots or how big your field of view is. If you were to have a problem in your peripheral vision or an exaggerated blind spot it may be an indicator of a problem in the eye. This test can be as simple as following a pen or light from side to side or as advanced as using specialized equipment to actually map how your eye sees light. From here the exam moves forward in great detail. It will include the visual acuity and refraction aspect where the doctor will use various methods to determine how well you are seeing. The primary method is retinoscopy. This is a hand held bright light used by the doctor to determine the refractive error. Sometimes an auto refractor machine is used instead to evaluate the error. Then by showing you a series of trial lenses dialed in a phoropter they will fine tune and determine the new correction. This is typically where you get the “better 1 or 2” kind of questions. The really important part from the patient perspective here is to not cheat. No

squinting and no “guessing”. Every answer you give to the doctor has a specific reaction. If you cheat the answers you can expect to have problems with your glasses. No matter how good the refractionist is, bad answers get bad results. Although this portion of the prescription is a blend of objective and subjective information gleaned during the process. Generally a really good examination will uncover the inconsistent responses but it still might not lead to the best possible result. You should also expect a slit lamp exam. This is a type of microscope tool the doctor will use to look into the eye for abnormalities internally as well as on the cornea. It has a very bright light that can be shown in different colors. Using an orange dye eye drop that the doctor puts in they can see if there any surface problems like scarring or infections. The doctor will also do a retinal exam. During this procedure the doctor is looking at the back structures of the eye. Specifically they look at the retina, the optic disc, and the blood vessels that feed the eyeball. Depending on the in-depth nature of the exam the doctor may also dilate the pupil to get a better look at the structures especially in the case of stronger corrections or if there is a history of ocular disease. The dilation is not always mandatory, but it certainly is helpful. Tonometry is a very important part of an eye exam as well. It is a determination of internal pressure in the eye. An elevated pressure would indicate glaucoma. It can be treated with medication but left untreated elevated pressures can lead to blindness. There are other tests that the doctor may do during the exam to help answer more complex questions that may come up or to deal with specific eye health history issues, but for the most part these are the basic aspects that you should expect during an exam. Top 10 Tips One of the most important parts of an exam is who is doing it. This is probably the most difficult part of the whole thing. The following is just a guideline and there are always exceptions to the rule but in my experience I recommend some of the following tips. continued on pg. 28 Archery Magazine June / July 2008 27


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 27

#1 Don’t choose a provider based solely on your insurance provider. If you feel like cattle going through the mill to get an exam then trust your gut. It’s not a tire shop, it’s an eye exam. You should feel comfortable, confident, and relaxed about the whole event. An ultra high volume office is not the place that will normally cater to the specific and finicky visual needs of an archer. #2 Ask your friends, ask fellow archers in the area, and ask people who do gun sports. Often they have done their homework or at least been through some of the bad choices and you can benefit from their experience. #3 Don’t be afraid to visit the office on a random day like a recon mission. It’s easy to get the feel and vibe of the practice and the people working there. In a medical type setting where it’s an exam only setting it might be a little tougher but usually they are so

busy you can just slip in and find a seat in the waiting room, read a magazine for a few minutes and listen. If it’s a retail setting where exams and glasses are done then browse, listen, even ask some light questions to get a feel for their experience, their attitude, and their abilities. #4 Never forget that this is totally your decision. Generally you are going to spend several hundred dollars on a few pair of glasses so you have lot of buying power. The practice DOES want your business, especially if it’s long term. Exams should not be done based on price alone. That said, the most expensive isn’t always the best either. #5 Buy one get one free or other type of huge offers almost never work out right. #6 Most chains pay their staff heavy commissions, most private offices do not...keep it in mind. #7 Ask the staff about licenses. Or at least look for them on the wall. Most states require certification or licensure. Since this is not a “summer job” make sure you’re dealing with experienced professionals who are committed to the craft. Most of the time technicians should be certified by the state if they are in the exam room helping. These certifications will be hanging on the wall and listed on their name tag. #8 No... there is NO stupid question when dealing with your eyes or your glasses. The more you ask the better educated you become. An educated consumer is great to deal with. You wind up getting what you want and what you need. You’re less likely to get something that doesn’t work. #9 Don’t feel rushed or pressured to do anything. All additional tests can be done at a later time with planning, especially if it’s an extra fee. Make a well planned and thought out decision. Do your homework like mentioned above or online. #10 Be specific in your expectations. Now once you have the correction in hand it’s off to the optician for a set of glasses. That will be the next installment... [Chuck Cooley Background begins pg. 68] continued on pg. 28

PERFECT PRACTICE, PART 3

by Bernie Pellerite ©2008

The Do’s and Don’ts of An Accelerated Learning Curve Due to the length of this subject it has been broken down into three parts. The first two installments appeared in the previous issues. This is the final installment. s stated in the last two articles, consistently hitting what you aim at with a bow and arrow is really hard to do! This “predictable accuracy” that eludes so many of us is an attainable goal, but it’s never really achieved or maintained without endless hours of practice. For those of you who would rather “pray for luck,” here’s an old archery saying . . . “It takes a lot of luck to succeed with a bow and arrow . . . the more you practice, the luckier you seem to get!” It follows that if we’re going to have to practice, we might as well make it count. Like most good archers eventually discover . . . practice does not make perfect . . . perfect practice makes perfect! The best way to do that is to have a qualified coach keep you on track. By the way, besides teaching the shooter’s school, I also do private and group lessons at my home.

The following is part 3 of a uniquely productive and accelerated practice regimen. These “super sessions” are for serious bowhunters and target archers only. With the proper dedication, these do’s and don’ts will greatly accelerate your learning curve and your level of understanding and accuracy with a bow and arrow. • DON’T randomly fire arrows without a purpose, a system, a rhythm and a sequence. If you don’t shoot every one the same way, or if some are flying differently than others, or you have no particular purpose to accomplish on a given session, then you are probably just wasting your time. For example: “I’m going to shoot 30 arrows at an empty bale, and watch my bow hand, to learn to quit grabbing the bow.” Work on one problem area at a time until it is no longer a problem. • DO record your shot sequence, and number and chart your arrows. Use your log book to triple your progress! Number and enter the steps of your individual shot sequence in your log book: Example: #1 Nock arrow, #2 Hook release (or fingers) on string, #3 Set bow hand, #4 Pre-aim, #5 Draw to anchor, #6

Center target in peep, etc. etc. Some people will have five steps and some have fifteen steps, but it’s important you record yours, so you can systematically analyze and improve any one of them, if you need to. Video yourself if you can, so you can compare what you look like shooting well with what you look like when you are in a slump. It will get you back on track, if you inadvertently start changing something. You should also number your arrows . . . but don’t put the numbers where you can see them while you are drawing the bow (see photo). For instance, this could cause you to start to anticipate or predispose that #2 arrow will hit high right. . . because it did the last two times. You will then start continued on pg. 30

You don’t want to know the number of the arrow you are about to shoot. Archery Magazine June / July 2008 29


to subconsciously favor holding low left on the target for the #2 arrow. Draw the scoring rings, representing the target, on the pages in your log book, or make reduced copies of your targets (see diagram), and record where each numbered arrow hits the target . . . put the number where the arrow hole was. Example: #3 hit 6 o’clock in the 5-ring; #6 hit 1 o’clock in the 4-ring; #8 hit the center of 5-ring, etc. At the end of five sessions or so, take your log book and chart the results on a “bar graph” or “pie chart.” You will probably notice certain patterns developing. Maybe, for example, 70% of your misses are low left. Now, this is valuable information! This could mean you are dropping your bow arm or maybe popping your head up. Or, you might discover that 62% of your misses are on the last two arrows. This could mean you are not resting between shots and are getting tired. Or, you may be over analyzing and trying too hard to shoot a perfect end . . . holding way too long, thus making you shoot outside your comfort zone. Or maybe you find out that your #4 arrow, always shoots high. This could mean it is hitting the rest, weighs less than the others, is bent or you need to check the fletch and/or nock alignment. This type of accelerated practice session can put you years ahead of your competition in just a few weeks or months. • DO run what I call, “instant replays.” What this means is, 30 Archery Magazine June / July 2008

as soon as you shoot an arrow, “replay” in your mind where the sight was (or more important, where your mind was!) . . . at the instant of release. For instance, if the sight was at 6 o’clock, one inch below the bullseye, and your mind followed it down there . . . and then the shot went off and the arrow landed at 6 o’clock . . . then you shot a good shot! You will usually find that, if you think in the middle . . . the sight and the arrow will go where you think! Write it down in your log book. Record the shots that felt bad or were aimed off target, and you

will be surprised at the results. If you have access to a video camera, use it in your practice sessions. Record yourself from a side view and then, from behind and from the front. When you shoot a good or bad shot . . . tell the camera what you think. Then, tell it what you did right or wrong immediately, while it’s still fresh in your mind. Hold up a target for the camera and point to where that arrow hit. By talking to the camera on bad and good shots, later when you watch it, you can analyze this “instant feedback” . . . which is invaluable for self-coaching. By recording your practice sessions, you can discover and analyze patterns and flaws . . . to learn why and when you miss most often. Then you can overcome anything that arises, before it becomes too serious or ingrained into your form. You can also put an inexpensive ($5) wardrobe mirror under the camera, leaning against the tripod, to show a

Use a video camera in your practice sessions. Put a mirror under it and look at it occasionally to see if your form is okay!

profile view of your form. As you come to full draw, peek out of the corner of your eye and look in the mirror at your form . . . are you leaning back? . . . is your elbow too low? . . . is your draw shoulder up or down? If you see something wrong . . . let down and start over! This will help you stop a lot of bad form before it takes hold, if you are willing to apply yourself. • DON’T pressure yourself into trying to beat the local “hot shot” or into trying to shoot a perfect 200 on a 3-D round, if your personal best is only 174. Only a fool expects to shoot twenty bullseyes in a row in a tournament, when he has never shot more than eight in a row in practice. • DO set realistic and attainable goals. You should have three types of goals. Your immediate goal should be to shoot only this one shot today . . . in the exact center of the target. Your intermediate goal should be to beat your previous best score. Your long term goal may to be to win the world championship . . . but that one is up to you! You should only compete, in any given tournament, with your last best score, not the local hero. Pay no attention to your competitor’s scores . . . you can’t change them. The only thing worrying about them will do is change your score! Your goal should be one point higher than your best previous effort!

at a tournament, then you must be more astute, organized, analytical, and intense in your practice sessions than you’ve ever been in the past. Remember . . . “If you continue (in practice) to do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you always got (in tournaments)!” Also, don’t forget the Rule of 6 P’s — Persistent Perfect Practice Prevents Poor Performance! You’ll get worse before you get better If you do decide to bear down and “take the cure,” remember this: you’ll get worse before you get better . . . accept it! Normally, it takes sixty to ninety days for your score to return to normal . . . and then to steadily increase. The reason for that is, as you try parts of the new “idiot proof” form, each shot will be part your new way and part your old way.

Until you totally ingrain the new form into your subconscious, it’s still not yours. That’s why we recommend not shooting a target . . . just an empty bale or a bow simulator. Gradually, the new form will completely replace your old way and you won’t even be able to remember how you used to do it. Don’t give up! Stick with it . . . it will pay off in the end. Just ask any of my students! Stay away from targets. They will only slow down or kill your progress. Remember, you can’t learn while you’re aiming. Insert picture “eyes closed”. Caption: Shooting with your eyes closed transfers the feeling into your muscle memory. Here’s an idea that a lot of pro shops and clubs have adopted that will help make empty bale shooting less boring. I call it “Empty Bale Night.” One night continued on pg. 32

a week (usually just an hour), is set aside, just like for a league, for anyone who wants to work on their form, release or whatever. All shooting is done up close to the bale with no targets. Anyone who comes in to shoot, must shoot up close, or not at all. This way, you can help and remind each other what everybody might need to do. You can ask your buddies to watch you (and you them) to make sure you’re correctly doing whatever it is that you are working on.

It’s fun, because the competition (the target) is taken away and you can relax and feel like you’re actually accomplishing something.

2008 WAF STANISLAWSKI OPEN

How do you split a esides being able to compete at a truly “open” international archery event, there are three very good additional reasons for attending the Stanislawski Open, the last leg of the World Archery Festival’s 3-Star Tour: 1. You’re eligible to enter a shoot-off for a Ford Mustang (or about $14,000 cash) if you’ve shot in all three legs of the 3-Star Tour; namely, the Vegas Shoot, the NFAA Indoor Nationals, and the Stanislawski Open. 2. Similarly, you can win $1,000 if you survive a match-play shoot-off among the top thirty-two, based on aggregate score, who’ve competed in all three Novelty Rounds. 3. You can win the $1,000,000 jackpot if you scored a perfect 900 at Las Vegas, a perfect 600 with 120 X’s at Louisville, and a “super-perfect” 900 with 90 X’s at Hartford using the new Stanislawski Open Round, which is a slight modification to the Vegas Round. Primarily because of space limitations at the new venue, the 20-yard modified Vegas Round was created to replace the Classic 600 Round, which was shot at 40, 50 and 60 yards. Instead of three games of 30 arrows each, at three arrows per end for ten ends, the Stanislawski Open Round consists

of two games of 45 arrows each, at three arrows per end for fifteen ends. The standard Vegas target face is used at both tournaments, but at the Stan Open, X-count is considered a part of total score, whereas X’s are not counted at the Vegas Shoot. This was the first year that there were five top shooters eligible to win the $1,000,000: Jedd Greshock, Braden Gellenthien, Bob Eyler, Dave Cousins and Chance Beaubouef all shot perfect at both Las Vegas and Louisville. Now all they had to do to win $1,000,000 is to put all ninety arrows in the tiny X-ring. A piece of cake, right? There were three shooting lines on Saturday: 7:30 am, 11:30 am, and 3:30 pm. As expected, very few shooters picked 7:30 am for their first round, but the 11:30 am line was full, while the half-full 3:30 pm line was reserved for those who really wanted to sleep in. Since the three-spot Vegas target face is familiar to just about every archer, Saturday’s round was scored by all with very few hitches. All eyes were on the three “future millionaires” who made it to Hartford: Braden Gellenthien, Dave Cousins and Chance Beaubouef (Bob Eyler and Jedd Greshock did not register). Chance Beaubouef came closest to remaining perfect. His 450 with a near-perfect 44 X’s led everybody. Braden Gellenthien was out

Mustang 14 ways? of the million dollar jackpot early with a 450 and 36 X’s, nine off perfect, while Dave Cousin’s had a very bad day (for him) by dropping one “10” and five X’s. Consequently, the $1,000,000 Jackpot goes begging for another year. Someday, somewhere, somebody’s going to find the pot-of-gold. There were no less than twenty-three perfect 450’s shot in the Championship Freestyle Male Division. [Note: One must remember that according to the rules, all ties for first, second or third place in the championship divisions are broken by shoot-off and not by X-count. Otherwise, everyone would be in the dark until all scores are posted. Besides, shoot-offs have tremendous spectator appeal.] Following Beaubouef, Rodger Willett, Scott Starnes and Reo Wilde were nearly perfect with 450 and 43 X’s. Four more were tied with 450 and 41 X’s. As you’ll see later, even Braden Gellenthien at 23rd place, remained in the running for the Championship. Perfect 450’s were also shot by Dwight Snodgrass in the Championship Senior Division and by William Simas in the Freestyle Flights Division. There were also fifteen 449’s and twelve 448’s shot on Saturday. There were several very close matches (separated by one point or less) on Saturday. In the Bowhunter Flights, Tim Ewers and Bill Hakl were tied with 448’s, while Vic Ziliani followed closely with 447. Christie Colin and Samantha Neal, both with 447, led Connie Calloway and Holly Larson by one point in the Championship Freestyle Female Division. Dwight Snodgrass (450) was just one point better than Dee Wilde in the Championship Senior Freestyle Division, while Terry Butler and Joe Silvasi were tied with 434’s in Crossbow, as were Eric Facklam and Jimmy Bell with 421’s in Cub Male Freestyle. In the Freestyle Flights, William Simas (450) was just one point better than Mike Lamar and Gary Schuler. Other one-point margins were with Phillip Tucker (444) and Blake Trail (443) in Young Adult Male Freestyle; Michael Chemistruck (420) and Colin Foreman (419) in Young Adult Male Recurve; and Aaron Lopes (440) and Alexander Sahi (439) in Youth Male Freestyle. continued on pg. 36

This is how you divide a Mustang into fourteen pieces. Actually, they got $1,000 each

Split a Mustang...continued

Hall’s Arrow All Stars, from nearby Manchester, CT

Saturday evening was capped off with the traditional 3-Star Tour shoot-off for the Ford Mustang. There were 140 shooters at Hartford who had competed in all three 2008 3-Star events, and who were therefore eligible for the shootoff. Starting at 10 yards, those eligible shot one arrow at the special “Mustang” target face. In 5-yard increments, only those who scored a “5” advanced to the next longer distance. Gradually, as the line moved from 15 to 20 to 25 to 30 to 35 yards, the number of survivors was reduced to fourteen. Suddenly, as the group moved back to 40 yards, somebody (either Nathan Brooks or Dave Cousins) suggested that they stop here, and divide the prize equally among the fourteen. You can’t split a Mustang fourteen ways, but you can split the $14,000 cash-equivalent. In a “Deal or No Deal” fashion, the fourteen survivors unanimously agreed to accept $1,000 each. What a letdown to the spectators! Like in a Roman coliseum, they had come to watch the gladiators fight it out until only one was left standing. Although it was a donedeal, the fourteen agreed to continue on with the elimination. Finally, at 50 yards, Keith Trail became the “what-if” winner. Keith’s only comment: “My wife is going to kill me” (... for giving up $14,000 for $1,000). Keith had a good reason for accepting the deal, however. Last year, he finished first runner-up, which earned him absolutely zero dollars. There were just two lines on Sunday. All juniors and some adult Freestyle Flights shot at 7:30 am. All others were assigned to the 11:30 am line. Cubs, Youth and Young Adult archers made up about 20% of the total registration, more than 36 Archery Magazine June / July 2008

one-half of which were members of three “travelling teams.” Two teams are from Connecticut, Sagittarian Archery School and Hall’s Arrow All Stars, and one is from Vermont, Pelkey’s Road Team. Pelkey’s has always made it a habit to come to the Stanislawski Open. The kids experienced some fine rallies and some very close matches. Caleigh Tierney came from twelve points down after Saturday’s round to better Kim Rinaldo by four points in the Young Adult Female Recurve Championship. Likewise, in Young Adult Male Recurve, Schuyler Routt came from six points down in third place to win the Championship by two points over Colin Foreman. Erin Fitzgerald managed a similar feat in Youth Female Recurve by coming from three down to win by sixteen over Catherine Brennan.

The proud junior shooters pose with their plaques

As at the Vegas Shoot, an adult archer may opt to shoot in a non-championship division for about one half the registration fees. At Hartford, these “Flight” Divisions included Freestyle, Bowhunter Freestyle, Freestyle Limited, Barebow and Crossbow. Men and women are combined in all Flight Divisions except Crossbow. Likewise, men and women, as well as compound and recurve bows, are combined in the Championship Freestyle Limited and Championship Senior Divisions. All adults compete for money only, while the juniors are awarded plaques for first, second and third place. Ties in the non-championship division are broken by total X-count. One such tie occurred in the Bowhunter Freestyle Flights, where Tim Ewers and Bill Hakl shot near-perfect 897’s, but Tim won the big bucks ($400) because of a higher X-count, 75 to 63. There was a three-way tie in the first flight of Freestyle Flights, where Charles Raeth, William Simas

did just the opposite. After a 450 on Saturday, he dived to seventh place on Sunday after a 442, and out of the money. Dee Wilde and Dick Smith held on steadily and finished just one and two points, respectively, behind Steve.

Looking down a Saturday target line, where styles, ages and genders are mixed

and Gary Schuler were tied with 897’s but declared first, second and third, respectively, based on total X-count. A shoot-off, however, was required in Championship Freestyle Female Division where the positions among the top five ladies changed quite frequently on Sunday. Tiffany Reeves, who was fifth on Saturday, shot a perfect 450 on Sunday to capture first. Christie Colin and Holly Larson who were first (tie) and third (tie), respectively, on Saturday, were tied for second place after Sunday’s round. Holly won the mandatory shoot-off. Connie Calloway dropped a tad from a third place tie on Saturday to fourth place on Sunday, whereas Samantha Neal went from a first place tie to fifth, and out of the money. The Seniors also did some leap-frogging. Tied for fourth after Saturday’s round, Steve Boylan shoot a perfect 450 on Sunday and jumped to first place. Dwight Snodgrass

Holly Larson and Christie Colin shoot-off for 2nd place in the Freestyle Female Championship

No less than ten men shoot off for the Freestyle Male Championship

Now for the big dance. The twenty-three Championship Freestyle Male shooters tied with the 450’s on Saturday were reduced to ten tied with 900’s on Sunday. The ten, none of whom are strangers to shoot-offs, were Duane Price, Jim Despart, Braden Gellenthien, Reo Wilde, Michael Anderson, Scott Starnes, Andrew Wilson, Jesse Broadwater, Michael Braden and Chris Eggers. Incidentally, Braden Gellenthien was the only NFAA Pro on the line who shot a perfect 2400 total score for the three 2008 3-Star Tour events. The shootoff rules are as follows: After one practice end of three arrows, the next two ends are scored using “regular” scoring. If still tied, then the subsequent ends are scored with only the X-ring counted as a “10.” After the first scoring end, Michael Braden departed with a 29, while the other nine scored 30. In the second end, Andrew Wilson dropped out with a 29, while the remaining eight all had 30’s. After the third end where only the X-ring counts as a 10, only Jesse Broadwater, Chris Eggers and Scott Starnes were left standing. Jesse Broadwater dropped out after the fourth end, leaving Chris Eggers and Scott Starnes to duel it out. It took three more ends before Scott nailed a perfect 30 to Chris’s 29. It was Scott’s first championship as an NFAA Professional. Before the afternoon awards ceremony, the continued on pg. 38 Archery Magazine June / July 2008 37

3-Star Tour Novelty Round shoot-off took place using a match-play format. As with the Mustang shoot-off, one had to shoot a Novelty Round at Las Vegas, Louisville and Hartford. Then the scores were summed for all three sites, and the total scores were ranked from 1 through 32. The match play starts with 1 vs. 32, 2 vs. 31, 3 vs. 30, et.seq. Jim Butts was seeded first with a 448 (450 is perfect), while Ron Hardesty (419) was seeded 32nd.

Proliferation of NFAA Divisions and Styles—the First 60 Years 1946

by Paul Davison NFAA Historian

DIVISION (MALE AND FEMALE) Open (Adult) Youth Young Adult Amateur (Adult)

Once Upon a Time... Only Four Championship Trophies Were Awarded have an officially-issued name badge saying that I’m the NFAA Head HasBeen. I only wear the badge at the annual NFAA Board of Directors meeting, where it draws a few laughs at the welcoming reception. With this title, however, together with a recurring NFAA history article in this magazine, I feel that I’m justified to get on my soap box once or twice. At this year’s annual meeting there was considerable discussion, with no resolution, on the increase in the number of NFAA awards presented at our Sectional and National Championships. This same discussion has been repeated at virtually every annual meeting for the past ten years. I first reported on the subject in the Sep/Oct 2001 Nostalgia Corner article in this magazine. The problem is money. The NFAA wants to balance the tournament registration fees with the tournament expenses, which are essentially the host club’s tournament operating

costs, plus the cost of the NFAA awards. The NFAA doesn’t expect to make a profit on their tournaments, but they also don’t expect to lose much money. The smaller NFAA tournaments, especially Outdoor Sectional tournaments, have been money losers for several years. This is because as many as 60% to 70% of the competitors receive either a first, second or third place championship award. A reasonable goal is about 1:3 award-to-shooter ratio. The following table (see facing page) shows the proliferation of NFAA awards over the past sixty years. At the first Outdoor Nationals in 1946, there were provisions for only four championship awards — 1/18th of the 72 authorized today. There are seven nonPro (plus one Pro) divisions and nine different styles for two genders. Not all styles are represented in all divisions, but the total number of possible championship awards still adds up to 72. Something’s got to give.

Either we reduce the number of awards, reduce the cost of the awards, or increase the registration fees. Another solution could be some sort of handicap system similar to what was tried (and quickly rejected) by the NFAA in 1974. That is, competitors are grouped according to the average of their most recent scores without regard to style of shooting, or possibly without regard to age or gender. It could be worth another try, however. In addition to the “styleless” handicap system, here are a few specific solutions offered over the past few years: 1. Merge like styles; such as, Barebow with Bowhunter and Bowhunter Freestyle Limited with Freestyle Limited. 2. Merge age groups; primarily Senior with Master Senior, and Young Adult with Adult. 3. Provide complimentary, and less costly, awards for Seniors and/or Young Adults, who could still compete for championship awards in the Adult Divisions. Seniors

were treated this way before 1994. 4. Instead of using the current “unit rule” (first, second and third place awards for one, two and three shooters, respectively); return to, for example; one award for 1to-3 shooters, two awards for 4-to-6 shooters, and three awards for seven or more shooters. This option only

reduces the number of second and third place awards. 5. Replace the championship silver bowls (Nationals) and plaques (Sectionals) with less expensive medals. 6. Increase registration fees. Most people agree that this is just a temporary patch, and not a viable, permanent solution. This is about as far as I’m

going to go on this sensitive subject. Remember, it’s you, the NFAA member that has the most to say about this issue. Your state’s NFAA Director needs to know your opinion on which direction the NFAA should go. Thanks for letting me step out of my historian role for a minute. I’m getting off my soap box now. ■

Mental Management® with Lanny Bassham

Lanny Bassham is an Olympic Coach and an Olympic Gold Medalist. He is a member of the Olympic Shooting Hall of Fame, ranks third among all shooters in total international medal count for the USA and one of the most respected mental trainers in the world. His book With Winning in Mind and his Mental Management® concepts are used and endorsed by Olympian and World Champion archers. You can reach him at 1-800879-5079 or at www.lannybassham.com When Silver Isn’t Enough! For all of you great natural athletes out there that lettered in 4 sports in school I have another story for you. When I was a little guy I was the worst athlete in my school. I ran the 100 yard dash in 12 minutes and played alternate right field in little-league baseball. Ever play baseball? That’s where you put your worst player and I was the alternate. One day after studying the Olympics in class our third-grade teacher said, “It is just possible that one of you might one day win an Olympic Gold Medal. Who do you think has the best chance of winning a medal in this class?” A boy sitting next to me stood up and said, “I don’t know who has the best chance but I do know who has the WORST chance. Lanny has!” That’s when I realized that it doesn’t matter if you win or you lose... until you lose. Losing hurts and I was losing a lot. I was sick and tired of being sick and tired of losing. I had to find a sport that would take a short, slow athlete to the Olympics. Shooting is more an exercise in making the body stop than in making it go. I could make it stop. I found my Olympic vehicle in the sport of International Rifle Shooting. In 1972, I found myself competing for the USA in the Olympic Games in Munich, Germany. Ask any Olympic champion what the recipe for winning is and you will likely receive something like the following. Take a huge amount of desire and dedication, add mental control, stir in proper technique, blend it well with quality equipment and mix in a dose of the opportunity to compete and you might just have something that has a chance to taste like winning. However, just as with any recipe, if you leave out any ingredient the outcome just doesn’t

44 Archery Magazine June / July 2008

taste good. I had almost all of the ingredients in Munich. The missing one cost me the Gold Medal. I did not have mental control in the competition and I came home with the Silver instead. Frustrated, I began my search for the secrets of the mental game. It made sense to me that the Gold Medalists must be thinking differently than the rest of us so I decided to survey as many of them as I could to gain insight. What they taught me was truly amazing. It formed the basis of a mental system I call Mental Management®. In the next Olympics, the Gold Medal was mine because I used a mental system to win. For the past 30 years I have been studying and coaching mental control to all sorts of performers; Olympians (including the US Olympic Archery team), PGA Tour players, Fortune 500 companies, The United States Secret Service, Miss USA and even The US Navy SEALS. My Mental Management® System is used by the Olympic teams of nine nations and countless national, world and Olympic champions. I am not a sport psychologist and the basis of my system does not originate from psychology. I am a competitor and the foundation of Mental Management® comes from the study of winners and what works for them in under the stress of competition. So, why should an archer read a series of articles from a rifle shooter? I don’t make a living shooting a bow or teaching archery technique. I can’t tell you a thing about how to point the bow BUT I can tell you how to point the mind. Over the years I’ve had competitive archers in my classes and within recent years I’ve found myself becoming much more involved with the sport. The Missing Ingredient In my experience as both an Olympian and an Olympic coach, the ingredient most often missing in the recipe for winning is mental control. In fact, I often ask Olympians what percentage of winning is mental. I have never had a champion archer say it was less than 90% mental. What do you think? If you said 90% mental are you spending 90% of your time and money on your mental game? If not, why not? Perhaps a place to start is to be introduced to

Mental Management®. If you are ready to make a serious effort to improve your mental game then this series is for you. The next few installments will cover some essential areas of mental control as it relates to winning from my prospective. Some of the topic areas will include: • Starting Early with Mental Skills • Understanding Pressure • Using a Proven System • Seeking Balance in Your Mental Processes • Controlling Your Response to the Environment • Principle Directed Training • Running a Mental Program • Understanding the Zone Phenomenon • Building a Winning Self Image

My goal is to cover all of these areas in the next few articles. So let’s begin by covering the first in this session. THE FIRST MISTAKE MOST SHOOTERS MAKE Since beginning my survey of Gold Medalists in 1972, I have talked to hundreds of winners and find that almost all of them made the same first mistake I made concerning mental control. We began to study mental control much too late in our careers. This comment is made far too often. “You don’t really need to worry about the mental game until you have a high level of mastery of form.” Nothing could be further from the truth. You need a mental game in the beginning. In fact, if you have a grasp of some of the Principles of Mental Management® before you begin to shoot you will learn proper form faster and with greater precision. I had a chance to test this theory myself during the 12 years I owned and operated the International Shooting School. Most of the students at this school had National Team goals and were funded by themselves or their parents. We had little time and money and needed to maximize the training. I found that by teaching mental skills early prior to beginning form training that we were able to cut the time in half from beginning shooting to placing an athlete on the National Team. I had one exceptional student that made the World Championship team for her country within one year of beginning shooting. Sounds good doesn’t it? Unfortunately this is not the normal way we learn

shooting. Most of us learn the hard way, the way I learned. We begin by pointing the bow with little regard to where our mind is pointing. As time passes we develop bad habits. They become imbedded and become very difficult to dislodge later on when we finally get around to being concerned about mental performance. Most shooters loose points because of preventable mental error every time they compete. This is an outrage and I’m unable to understand why so few shooters are concerned about it early on. If you are a parent reading this and paying the shooting expenses of your children then let me tell you the most important thing anyone will ever say to you. “Learn the mental skills in the beginning. Do not wait until they have technique down because it is way too late by then. Proper mental control builds self image that pays off in the classroom and in the archery tournament. You cannot begin too early.” An archer’s success is as much a result of where the mind is pointing as it is of where the bow is pointing. Get the mind pointed in the correct manner from the beginning! If you start shooting with poor equipment or poor form bad habits are inevitable. This is common knowledge. The same is also true with mental performance. The problem is that most coaches do not teach the mental game. Oh, they think it is important but they are not trained to teach it. I understand their dilemma. Teaching mental skills is difficult and here is one reason why. A coach can point to a winning shooter and say “See how they are holding their bow. Hold it like that.” But it’s a different matter when the coach says “See what that shooter is thinking. Think like that.” So, how do you find out what the winners are thinking? Ask them. That’s what I have been doing for the past 25 years and in the articles to come I’ll be telling you what they have been telling me. In the next issue of Archery Magazine we will begin to look at building a mental game that you can use to help eliminate the most common mental errors in competition. ■

SECTION & STATE ASSOCIATION NEWS

By Terry Wunderle

Five Ways to Enhance Your Yardage Skills Yardage estimation is the Achilles’ heel for most 3-D archers. You can be an excellent shot, which many 3-D archers are, but it does not do you any good if you do not know the distance. There are several things that you can practice to enhance your distance judging skills. First, learn to identify a known distance. If you compete on a national level, learn to recognize where 35 yards is located. Practice this until you can recognize 35 yards on the mark. Check it with a range finder. You need to be exact. Thirty-four yards or 36 yards is not acceptable. This skill requires several days of hard practice to acquire and continuous practice to retain. When you can identify the location of 35 yards, it will be very close to the distance of the majority of the 3-D targets. The average 3-D target on a national level course is 37 yards. When you can identify the 35-yard mark, it will be much easier to judge the distance from that mark to the target. Look at it this way, if at every 3-D target there was a yellow flag designating where 35 yards was located, how much more accurate would

46 Archery Magazine June / July 2008

you be in determining the distance of the target? If you only compete on a local level or perhaps you shoot in a division that does not have a 45 to 50 yard maximum, you would probably want to make your known distance less, such as 25 or 30 yards. Second, most targets are misjudged because of an error in figuring the last ten yards in front of the target. You need to be able to determine this critical point. Practice this by looking at trees, rocks, or any distinguishable objects and try to identify a point that is precisely ten yards in front of them. Then check the results with a range finder. Because very few people practice estimating distances near the target, they have difficulties arriving at the correct yardage. If you master learning the 35-yard mark and the distance of 10 yards in front of the target, you should be able to use them to get a third measurement that will give you the total distance. For example, if the 10 yards from the target is still two yards from reaching the 35-yard mark, the target is 47 yards (35+10+2=47). With the combination of these two basic distances there should only be a small piece of ground that you need to identify. Third, when practicing yardage estimations and figuring distances to a target, always do your calculations off the ground and vegetation. If you do the estimations according to how the target appears, you can run into complications. More or less light on the target makes it seem farther or closer. Using the ground as your focal point will give you a more constant factor with which to work. Next, when walking down a path to the upcoming target, always take a side view of the distance between the target and the stake, if this view is available. This additional piece of information often reveals the secret to the distance that is blocked by variations in the contour of the ground. Finally, when archers arrive at a tournament, they go to the practice range for a number of shots and then start the tournament. Studies have shown that archers have the most difficulty with judging distances during the first six targets. Instead of spending so much time on the practice range, use part of it practicing yardage estimation. Practice identifying where the 35-yard mark is located and get the feeling for the distance of ten yards back from any object. This practice will sharpen your skills before you face the first target. Judging distance will always be one of the most difficult skills to master in 3-D archery. Practicing this skill the same amount of time as you do shooting will sharpen your performance and enhance your score. ■

State News WASHINGTON

Crystal Parker, Director WA_NFAA@washingtonarchery.org Washington State NASP Championship by Linda Parker Washington State Archery Association conducted the third annual Washington NASP State Championship on 12 April 2008, with Clovis Point Intermediate School in East Wenatchee as the host site. In all, 171 archers competed in this event, with nine schools fielding eleven teams (some middle schools had both an elementary and a middle school

team entered, due to the grade levels represented at the school). With 20 targets set up in the school gym, and four archers sharing a target, we used three line times to accommodate all the registered archers. This year’s participation was approximately double the 2007 field. Some excellent scores were shot, and new records were set in every category except High School Boys. In the team competition, Easton High School took top honors, with a combined score of 3042 (of a possible 3600) amassed by the top four girls, top four boys, and next four overall representing the school. As highest scoring team, Easton High School took home the “Wolf Cup” trophy to keep until next year.

A Note on the Southeastern 3-D Sectional by Tim Austin Fifty one archers gathered in Myrtle Beach, SC, to shoot the Southeast Sectional Marked 3-D. Those of us who arrived the night before were guided to Socastee Station, a local restaurant, for wings and drinks and check-in. The way to the range was nicely marked with large clear signs, good parking, a fine practice range, and beautifully cut-out lanes in thick South Carolina woods. The fifty mostly Reinhardt animals were set out in two 15-target ranges and one 20-target range. We were grouped with different shooters, regardless of division, for each of the 15-target rounds, and then grouped by division for the final 20-target round. Perfect weather and a gracious, friendly, hard-working, host club made for a fun weekend.

SOUTHWESTERN SECTION Becky Pearson, Councilwoman beckysayre@hughes.net

News for the Southwest Section Members by Becky Pearson The indoor shooting season is over, and we’re well on our way into the outdoor season. The results from the Southwest Outdoor Sectional held May 17th and 18th will appear in the next issue. There were few changes to the rules as the result of the Board of Directors meeting held just before the Vegas Shoot. There was one item of discussion at this meeting that I would love to get your opinions on: Should the NFAA have a maximum arrow size? Would it be fair to the archers, manufactures, retailers, or clubs? If you would like to let me know your opinion, please write me at: Becky Pearson, PO Box 308, St. David, AZ 85630. Agenda items for the 2009 Board of Directors meeting are due to Headquarters by the end of September; so if anyone has any ideas on agenda items please get them to your State Directors in early September. ■

Archery Magazine June / July 2008 59


TO RECOGNISE NEW DEFINITION OF PROFESSIONALISM IN ARCHERY On 05 April 2008 the IFAA World Council has accepted a new set of rules by which Amateur and Professional status of archers is defined. The new rules define the Professional status of an archer while protecting the status of the Amateur archer. As from 01 January 2009 the new rules will be fully implemented, which means that the World Bowhunter Championships 2009 in Yankton, South Dakota, will be the first Pro-Am event of the IFAA under these new rules!

tus. 4. Only Professional archers who have registered with the IFAA as Professional archers may enter IFAA sanctioned archery tournaments as a Professional. At this stage registration with the IFAA will be free of charge. Archers who are Professional archers but are not registered with the IFAA may NOT compete in IFAA sanctioned archery events either as an amateur or as a professional.

tus rules to be a Professional, see new IFAA Policy Article 15. 7. IFAA hopes that this recognition of the realities of our sport where some archers are full time professionals but most are aspiring amateurs, who may be encouraged by support from other sources, will encourage a wider participation in our sport to the ultimate benefit of all. We hope that these new rules will bring clarity to all. IFAA Executive

2. The IFAA will start a formal database for the registration of Professional archers. The IFAA plans to make such a database accessible via the IFAA web site.

5. All IFAA sanctioned tournaments must allow for professional competition in the Freestyle Unlimited, Freestyle Limited Compound and Freestyle Limited Recurve shooting styles for men and women in the Adult division. No other styles are recognised for the Professional archer and archers who shoot as professionals in other than those three styles in non-IFAA sanctioned events may only compete as Professionals in those styles in IFAA sanctioned events. E.g. an archer who shoots as a Professional in the Bowhunter Unlimited or similar style in a non-IFAA event may only shoot as a Professional in the Freestyle Unlimited style in an IFAA sanctioned event.

3. Any archer who is found by IFAA to contravene the definition of Amateur status will be considered to be a Professional archer. An Amateur archer or a tournament organiser may now lodge a report to IFAA against an archer who has contravened the definition of amateur sta-

6. IFAA is encouraging Style Team competitions at IFAA sanctioned events for Amateurs as well as for Professionals in Corporate Team, see new IFAA Policy Article 16. However, it should be noted that any archer shooting for a Corporate Team is deemed under the Sta-

It is considered necessary to safeguard Amateur archery, which is largely self-regulating with regard to the Rules of competition, so that it may be equally enjoyed by all Amateur Archers.

The following steps have been taken to make this all work: 1. As from 01 May 2008 the IFAA will level the playing field. All archers who are paid up members of Full or Associate IFAA members will be deemed to be Amateurs irrespective of their previous status.

60 Archery Magazine June / July 2008

ARTICLE 15—RULES ON THE STATUS OF ARCHERS With effect from 1st May 2008 all archers who are members of an IFAA member association are hereby deemed to be Amateur Archers within the meaning of these Rules, irrespective of their previous status. PURPOSE AND SPIRIT The purpose and spirit of the Rules is to maintain the distinction between Amateur archery and Professional archery and to keep the Amateur sport as free as possible from the abuses, which may follow from uncontrolled sponsorship and financial incentives.

DOUBT AS TO RULES Any person who wishes to remain

as an Amateur Archer and who is in doubt as to whether taking a proposed course of action is permitted under the definition of Amateur status should consult the IFAA Secretary in writing. DEFINITION OF AMATEUR STATUS: 1. An Amateur Archer may work in an archery shop and receive a salary. 2. An Amateur Archer must not take any action for the purpose of becoming a Professional Archer, including entering into an agreement, written or oral, with a sponsor or Professional agent. 3. An Amateur Archer must not hold or retain membership of any Professional Archers’ Association. 4. An Amateur Archer may compete in IFAA archery tournaments for prize money but must not accept a prize (other than a medal or trophy) or prize voucher of retail value in excess of Euro 500 or the equivalent in another currency. This limit applies to the total value of prizes or prize vouchers received by an Amateur Archer in IFAA sanctioned tournaments over one calendar year. A prize or prize voucher may not be exchanged for cash. However an Amateur Archer may submit a prize voucher to the national association with which he is registered and thereafter be reimbursed from the value of that voucher in accordance with 5. a. below. 5. An Amateur Archer must not accept expenses, in money or otherwise, from any source to compete in an archery tourna-

f.

ment or exhibition other than provided for in this Article: An Amateur Archer may receive expenses, not exceeding the actual expenses incurred, to compete in an archery tournament as follows: i. Paid from a member of his family or a legal guardian or ii. Paid by the national association of which he is a member. iii. Expenses shall only be paid for the actual duration of the tournament as well as for reasonable travelling time and practice days. An Amateur Archer may accept archery equipment or any other gift (e.g. complimentary sight-seeing trips, hunting trips, etc.) provided no advertising is involved. Such equipment or gift may not be exchanged for cash An Amateur Archer who is invited to take part in a tournament for reasons unrelated to archery skill may receive reimbursement of his actual expenses. An Amateur Archer who is participating in an exhibition in aid of a recognised charity may receive reimbursement of his actual expenses, provided that the exhibition is not run in connection with another archery event. An Amateur Archer may receive payment or compensation for actual expenses incurred when giving instruction in performing archery. An Amateur Archer must not use his archery skill or reputation to: i. Promote, advertise or sell anything or for any financial

gain. ii. Obtain payment, compensation, personal benefit or any financial gain for allowing his name or likeness to be used for the advertisement or sale of anything. iii. Obtain payment, compensation, personal benefit or any financial gain for a personal appearance at an archery tournament or archery exhibition. 6. An Amateur Archer may compete in a Pro-Am event (i.e. WBHC) without compromising his Amateur status so long as he complies with paragraph 4 above. DEFINITION OF PROFESSIONAL STATUS: 1. A Professional Archer must register with the IFAA as a Professional Archer to be able to compete as a professional in IFAA sanctioned tournaments. Such registration shall be handled through the IFAA Secretary, who may delegate such function to others. 2. An archer shall be deemed to have registered as a Professional Archer when he first contravenes the ‘definition of Amateur status’. 3. An archer who is a member of a Corporate archery team shall be deemed to have registered as a Professional Archer. 4. A Professional Archer may compete in the Amateur division if no Professional division is advertised for an IFAA sanctioned event. 5. The IFAA Secretary shall maintain a register of Professional continued on page 62 Archery Magazine June / July 2008 61


Archers. A listing of the register will be accessible on the IFAA website for reference purposes only. The authoritative register will be that held by the IFAA Secretary. 6. Once registered as or deemed to be a Professional Archer, an archer shall be deemed to remain as such until reinstated as an Amateur Archer by the IFAA Executive Council. DECISION ON A BREACH 1. The responsibility to maintain Amateur or Professional status shall lie with the archer. 2. If a possible breach of the Amateur status by a person claiming to be an Amateur Archer comes to the attention of the IFAA, it is a matter for the IFAA to decide whether a breach has occurred. Each case will be investigated to the extent deemed appropriate by the Vice- President and considered on its merits. The decision of the Vice-President as to a breach shall be communicated to the person and shall be final, subject to a referral by the person of the Vice-President’s decision to the Executive Council. ENFORCEMENT 1. Upon a decision by the VicePresident that a person has breached the Rules of Amateur status, the IFAA Executive Council may declare the Amateur status of the person forfeited or require the person to refrain or desist from specified actions as a condition of retaining his Amateur status. 2. The IFAA Executive Council must use its best endeavours 62 Archery Magazine June / July 2008

to ensure that the person is notified and may notify any interested archery association of any action taken under paragraph 1. REINSTATEMENT OF AMATEUR STATUS 1. The IFAA Executive Council has sole power to reinstate a person to Amateur Status or to deny reinstatement. Each application for reinstatement shall be considered on its merits. 2. In considering an application for reinstatement, the IFAA Executive Council shall normally be guided by the following principles: a. Awaiting Reinstatement The Professional Archer is considered to hold an advantage over the Amateur Archer by reason of having devoted himself more fully to the sport as his profession; other persons infringing on the rules of Amateur status also obtain advantages not available to the Amateur Archer. They do not necessarily lose such advantages merely by deciding to cease infringing the rules. Therefore, an applicant for reinstatement to Amateur status must undergo a period awaiting reinstatement as prescribed in this Policy. The period awaiting reinstatement starts from the date of the person’s last breach of the rules unless the IFAA Executive Council decides that it starts from the date when the person’s last breach became known to the IFAA Vice-President.

b. Period Awaiting Reinstatement The period awaiting reinstatement is normally related to the period the person was in breach. However, no applicant is normally eligible for reinstatement until he has conducted himself in accordance with the rules for a period of at least one year.

right to approach National Authorities, Tournament Organisers and sponsors etc. in the pursuit of information to consider in connection with the said application for reinstatement. Such applications for information by the IFAA to other sources shall be copied to the applicant who may request from the IFAA a copy of any information so provided.

The following guidelines on periods awaiting reinstatement are indicative: Period of Breach : Period Awaiting Reinstatement Under 5 years : 1 year 5 years or more : 2 years

REVIEW OF THESE RULES The IFAA Executive Council retains the right to revise these Rules by an Executive Ruling that shall be referred to the World Council for endorsement or reversal at its next meeting.

The IFAA reserves the right to extend or to shorten such a period.

ARTICLE 16 – STYLE TEAMS

c. Status While Awaiting Reinstatement During the period awaiting reinstatement, an applicant for reinstatement must comply with these Rules as they apply to an Amateur Archer. He is eligible to enter IFAA sanctioned tournaments in the Amateur Division, however he is not eligible to receive medals or trophies and his scores shall be excluded from the scoring list when determining the medal position. PROCEDURE FOR REINSTATEMENT An application for reinstatement shall be submitted in writing to the IFAA Secretary and it shall include such information as the IFAA may require. The applicant shall respond to any further requests from the IFAA that reserves the
