greetings fellow archers! Welcome to the first Vegas Edition of Archery Magazine! I hope you will enjoy reading this information-packed issue regarding the 2014 NFAA Vegas Shoot. We are excited to devote an entire issue to what has developed and grown into the world’s premier archery shoot, and what most refer to as the “proving grounds of archery.” The Vegas Shoot started in the 1960s and was purchased by the NFAA in 1999. In 1999, The Vegas Shoot was hosted in the Sands Expo Center with 700 shooters. From 2000 to 2010, the shoot was held at the Riviera Hotel & Casino and grew to nearly 1,600 archers. In 2011 we moved to the South Point Hotel & Casino, allowing us room to expand our shoot “under one roof.” South Point has proven to be an absolutely fantastic venue for The Vegas Shoot. The 2013 event boasted over 1,800 shooters from all 50 states and 38 countries! South Point features 11 restaurants offering everything from burgers to five-star dinning, a 64-lane bowling alley, over 2,600 slot machines, 60 table games, a 22-table poker room, a spa and fitness center, 16 movie theaters, a pool and jacuzzi, and much more! This year, the Vegas Shoot will once again host the final stage of the World Archery-Indoor World Cup Championship. Join us Saturday night at 7:00PM in the South Point Arena for exciting head-to-head shooting to determine the 2014 Indoor World Cup Champions (Male/ Female, Recurve & Compound). Enjoy the annual Archers Appreciation Night while watching the World Cup finals, with over $30,000 in prizes and a great western BBQ. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the all the sponsors of the Vegas Shoot for their loyal support and vision in helping grow the sport of archery! Please be sure to stop by their booths and thank them for what they do! They will be honored and introduced on Sunday at the Vegas Shoot Off. This year’s trade show will be the biggest and best we’ve ever had. A big thank you to all our vendors for their continued support. The best way to show your thanks to our sponsors and vendors is to purchase their products! There is no better time—do it now! The NFAA Foundation is kicking off a fund raising raffle that has three great choices for one lucky winner: 1. Trip for 1 to two of the 2015 Indoor World Cups; 2. Trip for 1 on a 7-day South Af4 Archery Magazine

The winner will be drawn August 9, 2014 at the WFAC in Yankton, SD. 2014 is also a huge year for the NFAA as we celebrate our 75th anniversary! The NFAA started in 1939 in California and is proud to be the largest archery organization in the U.S. We have affiliates in 49 states and an association of Europe, representing nearly 1,000 clubs and pro shops. This special anniversary will be celebrated at the 2014 Vegas Shoot, National Indoor in Louisville, KY and the big birthday celebration will be held at our corporate headquarters in Yankton, SD. July 30 through August 8 will be the 69th National Outdoor Championship and the IFAA World Field Championship. During this time we will be celebrating our 75th anniversary with a parade, entertainment and the opening of our NFAA Foundation Museum! See our 2014 Quarter 1 issue of Archery for complete details. On a sadder note, Marihelen Rogers passed away on November 6, 2013. Marihelen and her husband MJ worked for the NFAA for fifteen years. Representing the NFAA as the Executive Secretary, Editor of Archery Magazine and Tournament and Events Coordinator, Marihelen had a tremendous sense of appreciation for her friends in the archery world. Those that had the opportunity of working with Marihelen know how much she enjoyed taking care of archers from around the world.  She was one of the greatest examples of someone “giving back” to what they enjoy! Her love for archery did not go unnoticed, as she was a recipient of the prestigious and coveted NFAA President’s Award and Medal of Merit. Please keep MJ and their family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. n

JAMIE VAN NATTA

Female Professional Shooter of the Year Occupation:  Computer Programmer,

Project Manager, Database Administrator, all around computer geek From: Toledo, OH Family: Married with dog, 2 cats, fish

  What was your favorite Shooter of the Year event in 2013 and why?

Redding is always my favorite event.  The camaraderie on the targets, the sheer number of people who attend, the variety of the shots, it all makes for a fantastic tournament.  This year the weather cooperated too, which is nice as well.   

How do you celebrate an archery victory or new personal best?

I don’t really celebrate victories.  I celebrate personal bests by splurging on something I have wanted and setting a new goal!   

What goals do you have for your 2014 archery season?  For 2014 I

hope to qualify for the World Cup Final again in Lausanne Switzerland.  I also hope to make the World Field Team and represent the USA at the World Field.  ▶

Braden Gellenthien

Male Professional Shooter of the Year Occupation: Professional Archer From: College Station, TX Family: Donald Gellenthien (Father), Rebecca Gellenthien (Mother), Britt Gellenthien (Brother) What was your favorite Shooter of the Year event in 2013 and why? My favorite event of 2013 was the Redding Trail Shoot. This was my first time that I was able to attend this event due to conflicts with US Archery World Cup Team commitments. The format was incredibly fun, challenging, and unique; it’s an event I hope to make every year from now on! How do you celebrate an archery victory or new personal best? I normally celebrate a win or tournament PB by taking a few days off from training to go fishing or golfing. Competing at such a high level is very mentally draining and it’s necessary to take the time to recharge after important events so that you can maintain focus over the course of a season. ▶

Male Professional Shooter of the Year What goals do you have for your 2014 archery season? I’ve made great strides on my mental approach to archery and my shooting technique over the last few years. I’m very excited for the 2014 season and my major goals are more personal than results-based. In 2014, I hope to enter every event completely prepared, relaxed and focused. As long as I can achieve this, I know that I will have a successful season. Archery accessory or equipment you could not live without: It’s hard for me to pick out just one piece of my equipment that stands out among the rest. My Mathews Apex 7, Easton ProTours + Eclipses, Scott Exxus, CBE Quadlite, and Beestinger Premiere rods are all integral to allowing me to shoot to my potential and I can honestly say that I feel that I’m using the best equipment on the market. One random fact about you, not archery related: Even though I’ve moved around a lot in the last few years, I’m still a diehard fan of all New England sports teams, well, except the Celtics. I’m not a huge fan of basketball. Besides archery, what other sports or hobbies do you enjoy? Besides archery, I really enjoy fishing and golfing. With fishing, I use it as a relaxing escape to recharge and have no intentions of ever excelling at it. Golf started the same way but as soon as I started breaking into the 80s consistently, it’s becoming more of an addiction than a hobby.

JULENE HAKL—cont’d. Female Amateur Shooter of the Year

What was your favorite Shooter of the Year event in 2013 and why? National Outdoors in

Darrington because I set 2 national records

How do you celebrate an archery victory or new personal best? I call my parents. What goals do you have for your 2014 archery season? I am

going to try freestyle this coming year. Shooting a scope is like starting over in the archery world.

Archery accessory or equipment you could not live without: That is a hard one. I guess I

would have to say it would be difficult to be without my binoculars. 

One random fact about you, not archery related: I always have a

smile on my face and try to be positive.

Besides archery, what other sports or hobbies do you enjoy?

Gardening and spending time with my family.

jamie van natta—cont’d.

Female Professional Shooter of the Year I would like to shoot a few personal bests on the field round and also get my husband more involved in a couple tournaments.   Archery accessory or equipment you could not live without: That’s a tricky question, ‘cause it’s

not archery if you don’t have a bow and some arrows!  So I guess I would first have to list my Hoyt bow and my Easton arrows.  However, I always carry my release, a Carter Atension 2, on the plane with me because you can borrow a lot of equipment if your stuff gets lost, but a

release that feels good in your hand is hard to find. One random fact about you, not archery related: I am a Certified Trick Dog Instructor and my

dog Modig has his Trick Dog title.   

Besides archery, what other sports or hobbies do you enjoy? There is no other sport for me, but for

hobbies I do lots of crafty things, like chain maille jewelry and scrapbooking.  I also have a pretty nice camera and like to play at photography. 

MARK PASMORE

MARK PASMORE

Male Amateur Shooter of the Year Occupation: Electrical Contractor From: Bridgewater NJ Favorite shooter of the year event: That’s a tough question as

I enjoyed them all, but Redding and Darrington were awesome! It was my first time to both events and I will be back to Redding this coming year.

How do you celebrate a victory or a personal best? To

honest I don’t do much. I will normally reflect on the day and try to learn something from it. I may call a close friend to talk about my performance, and then it’s time to get home and see my wife Dawn and kids Chase and Faith. I couldn’t do it with out them! Their support is amazing!

What goals do you have for 2014? I plan on moving up to

the Pro Class and competing in at least three of the five big NFAA shoots. During the Vegas and Louisville shoots I would like to get into the shoot off, not just a Lucky Dog like this year. I would like to make the top eight at Lancaster and just gain some respect from my peers. I plan on being in this sport for along time, and I have a lot to learn but I still want to keep it fun!

Archery accessory or equipment you could not live without: First and foremost my HOYT Vantage Elite bow is essential.

I have had a Hoyt in my hand since I was 14. My Stan-Shootoff 3 Finger has become a part of me also.

One random fact about you, not archery related? I ate

porkroll and bacon sandwiches almost every day, which is sad to say; I just cut it out of my diet and joined a gym. I am working out and eating properly now. Many people said it will help my shooting, and they were right. I feel better after only two weeks.

Besides archery, what other sports or hobbies do you enjoy? I enjoy watching NASCAR and football. I love to go camping

with my family and bring them fishing. I enjoy bow hunting, bird hunting with my German shorthaired pointers, and snow boarding.

Tomorrow’s

Archery: The Rise of Social Media IN THE SUMMER of 2012, Jason Corley was shooting an IBO tournament with friends when he asked someone the question, “who’s winning?” Nobody knew the answer. He was frustrated by the lack of coverage the sport provided and being an avid golf fan he saw the solution. Golf and archery tournaments follow similar formats and it was easy to see that through video coverage and live scoring updates it would be possible to follow our favorite archery pros on the tournament trail. So Jason showed up to the next IBO tournament with a video camera and walked out onto the pro range unannounced and starting filming.

the Iowa Pro Am in January and the next round of videos. Live scoring updates through Facebook and Twitter gave the fans back home a way to follow along and they were able to see Chance Beaubouef put on a clinic at both Presley’s and Iowa taking the top spot for the men’s pro division. The Midwest Triple Crown Series finished at the Kansas City Shootout and fans were given their first experience with end for end live scoring updates on the final round. They were able to follow along while Nshan Thompson shot an unbelievable perfect 300 30x on the Vegas round to capture the men’s pro title.

His experience and interaction with the pros after just a few IBO tournaments gave him the idea to start the Pro Reality Series. Bow Junky began the next tournament season with Presley’s Midwest Open in December giving many NFAA shooters their first experience with cameras on the range. Some of the shooters were nervous at first, however everyone was excited after they saw the videos. The shooters were hooked and everyone was looking forward to

The first tournament of the NFAA Shooter of the Year Schedule is the biggest indoor tournament of them all, the World Archery Festival in Las Vegas, NV. This was the first time for Bow Junky to be at a tournament with multiple media outlets. It was a great first experience as everyone worked together to promote the sport through media coverage without stepping on each other’s toes! One of the main goals of Bow Junky is to bring fans closer to their favorite pros like

never before. The shoot off at Vegas is the grandest stage of them all and also the most nerve racking. Fans were treated with play by play coverage from NFAA pro Dan McCarthy right behind the shooting line. The cameras were there as each archer was eliminated and got their up close reaction and interview moments after they stepped off the line. This up close and personal experience is what fans can look forward to for tournaments to come. After seeing Reo Wilde win his third Vegas pro title for the men and Erika Jones win her third in a row for the women’s pro class it was on to Louisville, KY for the next NFAA tournament of the year. Two rounds of 5 spot were the format and eleven men’s pros cleaned the tournament with two perfect 300 60x rounds. Coverage of the men’s final round expanded to include the women’s and senior pro classes with end for end live scoring updates to compliment the shoot off videos. As the season was progressing pro archers were getting more comfortable with the coverage and helping out where they

could which allowed for even more live updates from multiple classes. Ben Cleland won the inside out war and claimed his first ever NFAA men’s pro title. Erika Jones set a new national record on her way to her second NFAA win of the season and Tony Harbaugh won his second straight senior pro indoor title. The First Dakota Classic in April gave most archers their first glimpse at the newly expanded NFAA headquarters in Yankton, SD. The expansion allowed for the tournament to move back indoors and opened up new opportunities for coverage. Being able to connect to a high speed wi-fi allowed the fans to watch instant video updates. Hugo Barrientos gave us a show on Saturday night in the car shoot off and Jesse Broadwater and Braden Gellenthien had a dramatic final round shoot off resulting in Jesse claiming his first NFAA men’s pro win of the season. Erika Jones claimed her third win of the year for the women and Jackie White his second for the seniors. The Western Classic Trail shoot in Redding, CA is one of the greatest shooting challenges for any archer. Considered to be the best outdoor tournament in the country Redding is also one of the most beautiful. Lots of pictures and video coverage were on tap for the fans so they could see what this tournament was all about.

In the process this year we were lucky enough to cover one of the greatest performances ever in the sport. Jesse Broadwater’s near perfect 1539 tournament shattering record won him his second NFAA men’s pro title of the year. Erika Jones continued her dominate season as she finished on top of the podium for the fourth straight time and Alan Ruddock captured the win for the senior pros. The Outdoor National Championships in Darrington, WA completed the NFAA season in late July. It was great to be able to cover this shoot and follow Ben English as he took the lead for the men’s pros after day one and never looked back. Ben held a comfortable lead each day and captured his first ever NFAA men’s pro national title, which earned him a well-deserved Gatorade bath. Jamie Van Natta continued her dominance of this tournament adding to her already impressive silver bowl collection and Mike Leiter took the win for the senior pros. Fans were able to follow online the close battle for Shooter of Year as Braden Gellenthien edged out Jesse Broadwater for the title.

Focus Form terry wunderle

Competing at an indoor target tournament, one of my students performed well with the exception of two shots. When I asked him if he ran his mental program on every arrow, he replied, “Yes.” His buddy who was standing beside us remarked, “He may have been running his program, but he was flipping the channels.” At that moment, the true problem came to light. The archer’s concentration was broken by something that was going on behind the line. Instead of letting down and starting over, he continued with the shot. Unfortunately, the results were reflected in his score. To produce consistent, tight groups, every arrow must be shot identically. When concentration breaks down, a variation in form often occurs and the arrow will not hit in the same location. I believe an archer’s primary focus

should be on executing a shot with perfect form, which then allows every arrow to hit where the sight is placed. Permitting the pin to hold on or float around the desired impact point allows the arrow to reach its mark. Conversely, if one’s concentration is directed at holding the pin on the bullseye, form is more apt to change and inconsistent results at the target are guaranteed. Most shots are missed because the archer had a breakdown in normal execution and form; rarely is it because the pin was not on the target. This is why you must concentrate and direct yourself through the shot process. The classic complaint from archers is that they do not perform as well in tournaments as they do in practice. Why not? There isn’t any pressure during practice, so they do not force themselves to focus on making perfect shots. They are relaxed and naturally produce the same shot. However, during competitive situations, the muscles tighten up and execute a different form. The mind is going in ten different Directions, so the attention on proper form is lost. Competitions are the only place to truly test your ability to focus. The more opportunities an archer has to strengthen mental techniques in tournament play, the better he or she will become. Even on the practice field, every shot that is executed should be done with the same amount of focus and intensity as would be required in a contest. If you do not follow the same format in practice, you cannot expect to follow it in a tournament. When you shoot, do you do everything in the same manner? If you pay close attention to your form, you can tell where the arrow will hit. Any variation will drastically affect the impact point of the arrow. Does your release hand finish in the same position? Is your bow arm following an identical path? Is the rhythm or amount of time required the same? If the answers were not a resounding “yes,” then you need to work on your form. Consistency in form produces consistency in arrow groups. The key to a winning performance is to remain focused on form. n

The following are excerpts from Idiot Proof Answers to Archery’s Most Asked Questions by Bernie Pellerite. From the author: “When I decided to write this second book, I felt that it should be completely different from the first. To determine what most people wanted to hear, we took questions for over a year from the internet and from past seminars and shooter’s schools. Then we selected the top 275 from over 500 questions we had compiled. In this follow-up book to Idiot Proof Archery, we tried not to duplicate the material covered in the first book. So, most of “Idiot Proof Answers” is brand new material with new pictures and there is much more technical information in this book than in the first. The chapters include the following: Equipment, which includes bows, tuning, strings, peep sights, sights, rests, stabilizers, releases and arrows. Also Form, Aiming, Mental, Target Panic, Back Tension, Practice, Tournaments and Hunting. This article is a selection of questions and answers from the Bow Equipment chapter. Can you explain cam timing, both single and binary cams? Is there timing on single cams? When do you twist/untwist cables and twist/untwist the string? If you have a two-cam bow and your string and cables are to spec and the bow is maxed out, you should look for the timing/performance marks or the holes in the cams to line up with the cable at full draw, as seen in the pictures 1.8A and 1.8B. Cam timing is not as mysterious as most people seem to think. If you want to advance or retard the bottom cam, just put in or take out 1-15 twists into the cable that is attached to the cam you want to adjust. This will roll the cam further over more or less, depending Fig. 1.8a

on what you wish to do. Then, get someone to check the rollover at full draw (or use a draw board) to see if both cams are in the same position. Perfect cam timing is possible, but it will take some work. With a single cam bow, all you need to do is make sure that all the factory specs are adhered to; brace height, etc. Then you can put in or take twists out to the cable end loop that attaches to the peg on the side of the cam. This will adjust the starting rotation, which may vary from shooter to shooter, so you can achieve level nock travel. Bare shaft testing and/or paper tuning can (sort of) verify this. If you are really anal, then construct a “special” draw board (big wooden “T”) that anchors the riser solid and actually plots the nock travel by measuring the limb flex (top and bottom) per inch of string movement. This is if you have waaaay too much time on your hands! That should put the cam in the optimum rotation (so you can sleep better… not necessarily shoot better)! A longer axle-to-axle bow is said to be steadier. What is the best way to determine what axle-to-axle bow a person needs? A longer axle-to-axle bow is not really steadier, it’s basically just harder to torque at the moment of release, because it is longer. The longer the bow is, the harder it is to torque. (see picture 1.9.A, below) However, there is a connection between holding steady and axle-to-axle measurement and that would depend on the application. If you need blazing speed because you are hunting or shooting 3-D, you may want a short axle-to-axle, lower brace bow. (see picture 1.9B, next page). On the other continued on page 18 Fig. 1.9a

hand, you can shoot indoors with a longer axle-to-axle bow because you don’t need speed. You’ll have to evaluate all of the information as to what you want to do with the bow. What is the truth about low brace height bows? Are they good or bad? Brace height is simply the measurement between the string and the farthest forward point of the grip. What it means to most shooters is how quickly does the arrow get off the string. On larger brace height bows (8 or 9 inches) the arrow leaves the string sooner than on a 5 or 6 inch brace height bow. The reason this matters is, the longer the arrow is on the bow, the more chance you have to mess up the shot with torque, flinching, dropping the bow arm or other flaws. Most people find that any bow with a brace height of 7 or less is more “critical” and “unforgiving” of your mistakes, even with a string stopper, which gets the arrow Fig. 1.10 off the bow a few inches sooner. If you are still struggling to get consistent form, you need to get a larger brace height bow. A person with perfect form will probably not have too much problem 18 Archery Magazine

shooting the smaller brace height bows like the bow picture 1.10. There is a trade off, though. I don’t know of many large brace height bows that are fast. If speed is important, consider a low brace height (7½” or less) and work hard on your form. If you are going to shoot indoors at 20 yards where speed is not important, then get a large brace height bow. When choosing a bow, you’ll have to decide whether you want speed or forgiveness. Most people would prefer to have a combination of both. Super low brace height bows, down to 5 inches, were a fad a few years ago, but for most archers they were too super-critical. The string had a tendency to hit your wrist because the string does not stop at brace. It continues 2-3 inches past brace height, which can actually come within inches of the riser, unless you have a string stopper installed. For most people, the magic number seems to be a 7or 8-inch (or more) brace height bow. This seems to be more forgiving for the vast majority of the competitive shooters. What is “forgiveness” and what features of a bow contribute to “forgiveness”? The term forgiveness is a subjective term used by archers to describe the features of a bow, arrow, equipment set up or tuning method that will forgive slight mistakes made by the archer in his shooting form or execution. For example, an 8-inch brace height bow is generally more forgiving than an 6-inch brace height bow. Why? Because the arrow gets off the string 2 inches sooner on the 8-inch brace height bow. (see picture 1.11, next page) On two same-draw-length bows, the bow with the shorter brace height will have a longer powerstroke. A bow with a longer brace height will have a shorter power-stroke. So, if the archer made a mistake during the power-stroke when the arrow is still attached to the string, it would be more noticeable on the 6-inch brace height bow. The longer axle-to-axle bows are more “forgiving” because it’s harder to torque a long axle-toaxle than a short axle-to-axle bow. Fall-away rests are more forgiving than a regular rest because it’s easier to clear the fletch. These are just a few things that help with “forgiveness.” I am presently shooting a 65% let-off bow and am considering buying an 80% let-off bow so I can hold 8 to 10 pounds at full draw. Will this help to make my release smoother and more accurate?

Is a 6-inch brace height bow with a 26-inch draw comparable to an 8-inch brace height bow with a 30-inch draw?

For most shooters, high let-off bows like 80% let-off bows don’t make your release smoother or more accurate. What usually happens is you will get more lefts and rights. The reason for this is that, unless your personal limit is 8 or 10 pounds, then most shooters require more of a holding weight to be able to stretch out the forearm, wrist and elbow in a straight line behind the sight. The higher the holding weight, the more tension is built up in the back muscles and the straighter the wrist and elbow are in relationship to the arrow. Frequently what will happen is, when they go to 80% let-off (less holding weight), the wrist will start to bend and the elbow will start to droop. They can’t feel it because they’re not holding enough weight to keep it stretched out. Hence, they get a lot of unexplained left and rights. This is especially evident with finger shooters. Sometimes, finger shooters need 20 to 25 pounds of holding weight to be able to get a good crisp, finger release. Most pros require 17-20 pounds of holding weight to be able to execute the shot properly. 80% let-off bows are useful in the hunting industry, because you can hold on an animal for as long as you like while he makes his mind up whether or not to come out from behind the bushes that he’s hiding in. But then again, in hunting, you’re not trying to hit a quarter at 20 yards like target shooters do.

No it’s not, because the arrow in the 26-inch draw bow gets off the string 2 inches quicker than the 30-inch draw arrow. A 30-inch draw bow with an 8-inch brace height means the arrow is on the string 22 inches (30-8=22 inches). A 26-inch draw bow with a 6-inch brace height has (theoretically) the arrow on the string only 20 inches (26-6=20 inches). The 2-inch difference in brace heights won’t make up the difference. A 6-inch brace height with a 26-inch draw is less critical than a 30-inch draw with an 8-inch brace height because the arrow gets off the string 2 inches quicker (See picture 1.13). But, most archers don’t have good enough form to shoot the 6-inch brace height without a string stopper. n Fig. 1.12

Mike Strassman | Wisconsin Mike is currently serving as NFAA director for the state of Wisconsin. Mike and his wife have been NFAA members for the past 25 years. He began shooting 57 years ago, starting out with a longbow and recurve— which he still enjoys today—progressing up to target compound with all the bells and whistles. He has been a state board member for the past 12 years and director for the past 5 years. He still goes hunting, although not as much as he used to for deer. Elk hunting was a favorite hunt of Mike’s until the knees said no more. He still shoots competitively, although no longer as a professional. Mike’s biggest win was in 2002 when he won the Senior Championship in Las Vegas. Mike Spence | Michigan Organizations Mike has been involved with include: ■ National Field Archery Assn. Board of Directors 2011-2013 ■ Michigan Archers Assn Board of Directors 1989-2013, Vice President 1994-97 ■ Metropolitan Archery Assn Board of Directors 1980-82 & 1986-2013 ■ Jackson Bowmen Board of Directors 1971-72 ■ Washtenaw Sportsman’s Club (associate and regular member since 1954). Have held various official positions in this organization. On a personal level, competitive archery and bow hunting have always been an important part of Mike’s life. Having a father that had bow hunted big game since 1942, was a world class archer in the mid 1950s, and owned an archery store (Roving Arrow Shop) from 1958-1976, was a privilege most beginning archers don’t have. Mike started shooting a


bow with his father competitively in 1959 and has been actively shooting since then. Mike has hunted game with a bow in many states, provinces and foreign countries: ■ Michigan, Ohio, Florida (1984, 1987, 1989 & 1993); Colorado (1986, 1988, 1990, 1992 & 1994); Ontario (1984, 1985, & 1991); Saskatchewan (1986, 1988, 2000, 2003 & 2005); Wyoming (1987); Quebec (1989), Newfoundland (1993); Texas (1994, 1998, 2000, 2002, 2006 & 2008); Northwest Territories (1995); Indiana (1996); Republic of South Africa (1997, 1999, 2001, 2004, 2007 & 2011); Alaska (1998); South Carolina (2000), South Dakota (2006); Arizona (2009); North Dakota (2009); Idaho (2010); Nebraska (2012). Mike has always enjoyed all aspects of competitive archery (indoor, 3D, Field, Target) and bow hunting (big game, small game, bow fishing) and maintains a balance between them. In 1969, Mike won his first state championship, the Michigan Bow Hunters Association state broad head championship. From 1969 to 1988, he competed in 693 archery shoots and won 519. 1986 was his first year competing in the bow hunter freestyle division, and he plans to continue shooting this style through 2013. He has held all of the Michigan outdoor state records (8) for the professional bow hunter freestyle and open bow hunter freestyle divisions. Mike has also held two indoor state records and currently holds one national field record. In 1993, Mike won the Professional Division at the International Field Archery Association World Championship, held at Niagara Falls, Canada. That same year, the Michigan Archers Association voted to award Mike an Honorary Life Membership. He became the youngest person to hold both Michigan Archers and Michigan Bow Hunters life memberships (two years younger than Fred Bear).

He has also won 81 individual state archery championships, 53 team state archery championships, 7 NFAA Sectional Championships, 2 CFAA National Championships and a North American Archery Championship. Mike was on the Hoyt/USA co-op national shooting team for nine years through JR Custom Archery, and he was on the Tomorrow’s Resources Unlimited (TRU) Inc. shooting staff during 2001. He was also on the JR Custom Archery shooting team for ten years. He has provided archery demonstrations for the Boy Scouts, church groups, sporting organizations and parties for more than 30 years, as well as bow hunting seminars for Cabela’s and the IBO. Mike coached his children to four international championships, two world records (in field archery), as well as four national championships,

sand numerous state championships for their age groups. He is currently a certified USA Archery/NFAA level 2 coach and an International Bow Hunter Education Instructor. His goals are to continue to enjoy all aspects of archery and bow hunting, and assure his three children continue the family tradition of archery.

lee gregory southern Section Councilman Prior to serving in the councilman position (beginning summer 2004), I was the state director. My current shooting style is barebow and I shot freestyle from the time I started archery in 1972 until 2007. The southern section consists of Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Mississippi.

councilman corner | continued from page 21 are Steve Coleman, Texas; Garry Randall, Mississippi; Dick Andrews, Arkansas; Jim Metzger, Louisiana; and Fred Hockett, Oklahoma. We have some of the finest ranges in archery. Garry Randall maintains a beautiful range in southern Mississippi called Percy Faith Archery Range. Louisiana has Red River Bowmen in Shreveport, maintained by Bill and Emma Jean Brown. Oklahoma has Trosper Archery Range in Oklahoma City. Texas has six ranges available for major tournaments: Irving Bowhunters in Irving; Huaco Bowmen in Waco; Archer’s Haven in Canyon Lake; Tejas Bowmen in Corpus Christi; Buffalo Archery Club in Houston; and Golden Eagle Archery Club in Harlingen. Texas currently has two businesses that are strictly for training archers. They have no retail sales—Texas Archery Academy in Plano and Straight Arrow in Victoria.

The outdoor season has been relatively quiet this year. We averaged 40-50 shooters per event. The weather was hot, and perhaps some shooters wanted to avoid the heat or maybe they were just too busy with other activities in the summer months. The kids have other sports that occupy their time as well as their parents’ time. My oldest grandson, Chase, spent about six weeks in a football conditioning camp, followed by a 3-day position camp. After that, he started the two-a-days practices. In addition to football, he held down a job mowing grass three days a week. He was able to practice about a week before the State Outdoor Tournament. The indoor season has begun and runs through the end of February. Texas will have around 31 shops supporting the state association with the 2014 SYWAT Program.

The Shoot Your Way Across Texas (SYWAT) program is a collaboration between the Texas Field Archery Association (TFAA) and the various pro shops around the state for indoor and plus state clubs for outdoor. This program is intended to increase TFAA/ NFAA membership and provide a source of income to the state organization and the various host shops. As a result of the SYWAT program, we recently set a new attendance record at indoor state. We recorded 1,900 entries across 24 different pro shops during the three month season leading up to the state championships. That amount brought the TFAA over $14,000 in entry fees. Everything should be settling down for a few months now, so PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE—Vegas will be here before you know it! n

The Pro Line Let me take this opportunity to say “WELCOME” to all my fellow professional archers. I hope you had a wonderful outdoor season, full of fond memories and are now eagerly preparing for the up-coming and exciting 2014 Indoor Season. I have been asked to contribute to this issue as a continuance of what Chuck Cooley, our former Pro Chairperson started in the previous publication. For those of you who are unaware, Chuck stepped down from his position, prior to the beginning of a new term, citing increased family obligations. I would like first to offer a very warm heartfelt “thank you” to Chuck for the good work that he commissioned while at the helm. I accepted the nomination for the position of Pro Chairperson, on the premise that during my term and with the help of Pro Executive committee, we will address some very important internal issues. It is my opinion that these internal issues have dogged the Pro ranks for a very long time. With your help, I genuinely believe we can rectify some of these areas of contention. So, where do we start, you might ask? My response to that question is “at the grass roots.” Our growth is a direct by-product of the Local Associations and State’s offerings. If the local associations or state associations don’t cater for or offer incentives for archers to join the Pro ranks, one needs to ask the question, why should they? The question of “how to build the ranks” is forever being thrown out there for discussion with some very good ideas being offered. However, as the individual suggestions get brandished around from shoot to shoot, archery forums and camp fires, these ideas eventually fall on deaf ears,

because they either lack commitment or endorsement from the masses. Then there is the flip side where changes are implemented, only to find out that many of our members were unaware of the pending proposals. For lack of a better description, it is my opinion the NFAA Professional Division lacks cohesion or solidarity, the very elements necessary for the growth of any organization. If we as a group want to see constructive changes implemented, then we need to “get our act together.” My suggestion is to utilize the established structure as set out in the NFAA Constitution. Believe it or not, the existing guidelines actually do identify the protocols necessary to organize ourselves into a well managed arm of the NFAA, which ultimately would be of benefit to us all. Imagine this: • Establish a Management Committee whose primary purpose is to truly represent the rank and file members. • A State Pro representative who can liaise with the State Director on Pro issues. I do understand that there are some states, whose constitution and by-laws preclude the inclusion of this position. However, I am certain there is a Pro within those states, who could “step to the plate” and offer his or her expertise to the State Director. • A Sectional Professional Representative in direct contact with the State Pro Representative in their Section and the respective Sectional Councilmen. Imagine all these elements coming into play. Surely, this should be the first step necessary to develop the Professional Division into “marketable” entity.

EASTON FOUNDATIONS NATIONAL FIELD ARCHERY ASSOCIATION FOUNDATION JOINT SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM 1. Deadline for 2013 scholarship applications to be received at the NFAAF Office in Yankton is December 31, 2013. The winners will be announced at the World Archery Festival Vegas Shoot, February 2014. 2. The NFAA Scholarship Committee will review and rank the applications, place each applicant into the appropriate category and present their suggestions to the Joint Scholarship Approval Committee for their approval. The Joint Scholarship Approval Committee, consisting of two Directors of the National Field Archery Association Foundation and two Directors of the Easton Foundations, will make a joint decision on winners and the final amounts for each scholarship. 3. The NFAA National Office will notify all applicants if their application was denied or approved, and the amount of the scholarship. If approved, it will also describe the procedure for the scholarship payment. 4. For all scholarships greater than $500, the recipient will receive an Archery Activity Report form that must be completed and sent to the NFAA National Office twice a year, showing their archery activities during the year. Applicant Requirements The maximum amount of all scholarships for the first three years will be $50,000 per year. The goal is to provide 50% of the scholarships to recurve archers and 50% to compound archers. A secondary goal will be to split the scholarships equally between men & women. • Applicants must be a member of the NFAA or the NAA/USA Archery. • Applicants that are not graduating from high school in the current year (JOAD, NASP, junior high, or high school freshman/sophomore archers) may apply. n For this group, any approved scholarships will be held by the Foundation until the student notifies the Foundation they are graduating from high school, and the name of the qualified school they plan to attend. • High school applicants must be applying to be full time students at a two or four year college/university or a technical training college (these are considered qualified schools). n Applicant must maintain a 2.0 GPA minimum on a 4.0 scale in the current year. • College applicants must be full time students at either 38 Archery Magazine

• •

a two or four year college or university. Applicant must maintain a 2.5 GPA minimum on a 4.0 scale in the current year. Scholarship recipients must compete in archery during the entire academic year. Olympic, PanAm, or World Team members that have graduated from college may apply for training grants. n

Scholarship Levels 1. JOAD, NASP, Junior High, High School, Junior College or Trade College Students: Eligible for $500 scholarships. 2. College Freshmen, Sophomore, or Juniors: Scholarship amounts will vary between $500-2,500 based on the archer’s accomplishments, future competition plans, and the following: a. Applicant is attending college, participates in the college archery club program, and is shooting competitively. b. Applicant is attending a college that does not have an archery club program, but the student is shooting competitively on their own. i. If the student starts a new archery club program at their school, this will be a major factor to receive a scholarship the next year. ii. Students that are more successful starting archery clubs will be considered for greater scholarship amounts. 3. If the Applicant has made the current Olympic, PanAm, or Other International Team through the USA Archery selection process: Scholarship amounts will vary between $2,500-5,000 based on the archer’s accomplishments and future competition plans. a. The Joint Scholarship Approval Committee may approve a ‘training grant’ for Olympic, PanAm, or World Team members that have graduated from college, and allow them to use the grant to pay for training, and competition travel expenses without needing to be spent on the archer’s education. (Though this situation is expected to be rare, it will allow top US archers to apply for financial support.) 4. The Joint Scholarship Approval Committee has the discretion to create a larger scholarship for an extraordinary applicant (up to $20,000) depending on special

OFFICIAL VEGAS ROUND Target: All Championship and Flight divisions will shoot on either the 40 cm, “Vegas” threespot target face with gold – red– blue (10-9-8-7-6) scoring areas or the 40 cm single spot face with 10 through 1 scoring rings. The X-ring of the 40 cm Indoor Vegas Face will be used for tiebreaks in the Flights divisions and for 4th place or below in the Championship divisions. All Cub, Youth, and Young Adult Recurve division entrants will shoot on the 60 cm Indoor Face and all Cub, Youth and Young Adult compound shooters will use the standard single spot 40 cm Indoor Vegas Face or the “Vegas” threespot target face. Distance: 20 Yards Rounds: Each round on Friday, Saturday and Sunday will consist of ten ends; 3 arrows per end. The Cub, Youth and Young Adult divisions will shoot only two rounds; one each on Friday and Saturday. OFFICIAL VEGAS ROUND RULES You may enter either a Championship division or a Flight division. You will remain in the same division all three days. The number of entries in that division will determine the number of places offered in each division. The number of places listed for this year are based on last year’s attendance and are subject to change; however, there is a guarantee for the first three places in each division. Any division with

less than 20 competitors will be awarded a 70% payback based on actual registration. This may be different than the published awards. Non-English Speaking Competitors: Every effort will be made to contact those archers who require assistance to understand the equipment divisions, scoring procedures, tournament rules, etc. Please notify a tournament staff person if language or other circumstances may cause communication problems. Flights: Flight placements will be determined at the discretion of the tournament management. The method(s) used for determining the flights can be any combination of all three days of competition. Junior Divisions: There will be three Junior Divisions open to all archers, 17 years of age or younger; Freestyle, Freestyle Limited Compound, and Freestyle Limited Recurve. Each Division will offer three age groups. Recurve Division archers will use the 60 cm FITA-NAA Indoor Face. Compound Division archers will use the 40 cm 3-spot “Vegas” Target Face OR the standard 40 cm single spot Indoor Face. NFAA equipment rules will apply. All Junior Divisions will shoot at 20 yds. “Vegas” Awards will be presented for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for boys and girls in the Cub, Youth and Young Adult divisions. If attendance warrants, some divisions may be flighted. Ties: It is the intent of the tournament to break all ties. Championship division ties for first, second and third place will be determined by the highest total score from all three days of the competition (X’s will not be used to determine ties). All competitors tied with the same high score at the end of the third day will compete in a shoot off to determine final places. The shoot off will include one practice-end followed by an end-by-end sudden death. A maximum of two ends will be shot using regular scoring, then only the X ring scores 10 points until the tie is broken. After each end, only those still tied with the highest score will continue in the shoot off. Each archer’s placement in the tournament will be determined by the order in which he/she drops out of the shoot off. If more than one archer drops out of the shoot off in the same end, those archers will be placed based on their total score and X count, including the score and X’s accumulated in the shoot off, then first day score, first day X’s and so on. All other ties will be broken by the highest score in the following sequence:

The 899 shoot off will be held immediately following the last line- it will be a 1-arrow/end shoot off (1st arrow counting the X as a 10, then for each subsequent end counting the X as 10 scored inside out- no practice ends). All qualified archers (899 and 900’s) must turn their scorecards in at the podium within 10 minutes of the conclusion of the regular round.

vegas TIPS shoot Darrin Christenberry Shawnn Vincent Pam Severtson Shane Wills Henry Bass Josh Ulickey Randy Spanfeller How to Calm Your Nerves Shane Wills: “I usually listen to music that helps relax me before a shoot/shoot off. Go take in all the sights and sounds and enjoy [the tournament]. It is definitely a shoot you will not forget.” Henry Bass: “Treat Vegas like it was a local tournament or league, most people put a massive amount of pressure on the shoot because it’s “Vegas”. I try to look at it like it’s another night at practice.” Shawnn Vincent: “Get to know the people you shoot with, make jokes and get yourself to laugh. The more relaxed you are with the people around you, the better your shooting will be.”

Practice Shane Wills: “Put yourself in as many pressure situations as you can; whether it be local shoots, state shoots or regional shoots. The more you are put in that type of environment the better you will be.” Henry Bass: “Practice as much as you can. The shoots I have done the best at, I did nothing but practice the round every day for weeks. The more arrows you put through your bow the more you learn your and the bow’s tendencies.” Josh Ulickey: “The first 1-2 ends are usually the most difficult, so practice them. Hang half dozen targets and shoot only one or two ends on each. This will help you to establish a good hole to aim at on a clean face. It’s also important to keep score regularly, so

you know what your true average is.” Darrin Christenberry: “I try to shoot every day in preparation for Vegas. Some practice days are better than others. If I’m shooting well, I shoot until my arms are ready to fall off. If I’m not holding well or not executing perfect shots, I will put the bow down for a while and try not to force anything.” Pam Severtson: “If you know which lane you are shooting on for the tournament, check the lighting on that lane and try to shoot under the same lighting for practice.” Shawnn Vincent: “Once you get to Vegas, don’t practice for hours. Practice just enough to make sure your gear is on.”

Experience Henry Bass: “There is no better feeling then shooting under the same roof as the World’s best, in the same conditions, and knowing where you rank with them. I feel Vegas is one of the best learning experiences in all of archery as well as my favorite shoot of the year.”

Shawnn Vincent: “Be careful being on your feet all day before shooting. My first time at Vegas, I was so excited to meet and see all the different sponsors and vendors that I was wore out by the time it was my turn to shoot. Visit the trade show AFTER your line time.”

Josh Ulickey: “Go see a show, check out the strip, remember to be safe and know when your line time is the following day!”

Josh Ulickey: “Be respectful, act professionally, talk with your competitors and to the manufacturers at their booths. Always represent yourself in good spirits even if you shoot badly, it not only helps you but it makes the experience a lot more fun for the people around you!”

Darrin Christenberry: “I love Vegas. I have been going to The Vegas Shoot for 14 years and I see something new every year!” Randy Spanfellner: “If they aren’t into archery, leave your wife or husband at home so you can enjoy the whole shoot and not worry about entertaining them.” V18 Archery Magazine

Williams Age: I am 17 years young Hometown: Stillwater, OK How did you first get into archery? | One summer my mom told me I had to pick a camp to go to. Whether that was band camp, basketball camp, volleyball camp, she didn’t care just as long as I picked one. I ended up hearing about an archery camp and decided that’s what I wanted to go do. Then it just blew up from there! What is your favorite memory from The Vegas Shoot 2013? | My favorite part was getting autographs from some of the big time archers! My mom was laughing at me because I was a little bit more excited (at the time) about the autographs I had gotten rather than the trophy or even just that fact that I had won! What advice would you give to first-time Vegas shooters? I’ve heard from some people that they don’t think their scores are high enough to go yet, and I say, so what? Even if they aren’t it’s good to go just to get the experience and the feel for what it’s like to shoot there. Then use the entire year you have after that to work on getting your scores higher. Who is your archery role model? | That one is kind of tough. I have many archers here in Oklahoma who inspire me. But looking at the big picture and where I plan on aiming for the next 20 years, I’d have to say Erika Jones. She has won so much! And I know of many girls who would love to be in her ranking and status. Other sports or hobbies: | I like to ride horses. This weekend, labor day weekend, we had the county

fair, and I went and watched the horse show. This was the second year in a row that I haven’t showed; I started showing in the county fair when I was five. I miss it, but it was a sacrifice I was willing to make to be able to shoot as much as I do. If I can find time within this next year to ride I would like to show next year. Favorite subject in school: | Haha! Currently

ceramics! Ever since sixth grade my school schedule has been from eight until three. But this year, my senior year, they changed it to start at nine and go until four. So not only do I get an extra hour of sleep, I get to start my day off playing with clay! It’s great! Future plans: | I plan to continue shooting as long as I can. I would like to be professional archer but I don’t want to solely rely on that. So I do plan on going to college, I’m just not sure yet what I want to major in or where I want to go to college. I’ve been thinking about majoring in sports psychology, and minoring in business. I would love to grow old owning my own bow shop and just floating through life helping others buy their first bow!

GRIV will spend two hours going through advances shot execution techniques. He will explain how shot execution, form, and stability are interconnected with each other. He will cover how to get the most out of each release style and what to do when problems arise. The techniques outlined here will help you cross the plateau and into peak performance archery.

How did you first get into archery? | When I was eight years old I started shooting a compound bow. What sparked my interest is when I was with a friend of mine who had a bow and he asked me if I wanted to try to shoot it. I said sure shot three arrows and missed the target all three times and have been hooked ever since. That year I received my first compound bow. Shortly after that I joined a JOAD club at a local archery shop and started shooting competitively. Around August of 2010 I began working with a U.S.A. Olympic Coach by the name of Mel Nichols. After shooting a compound bow for a couple of years my coach and I decided continued on page V22 #VegasShoot ■ www.nfaausa.com V21

that I should start shooting a recurve bow as well. It was tough at first but with a great coach and a lot practice I am getting it figured out.

Danny Button

What is your favorite memory from The Vegas Shoot 2013? | My favorite memory from the Vegas Shoot is that I won my division. After the first day, I was in second place and knew I was going to have to shoot my best to pull off the win. On day two I shot very consistently and won.

Family: Jessica (sister), Jeff, and Beth Button Age: 17 Hometown: Cottage Grove, WI

What advice would you give to first-time Vegas shooters? | Some advice that I would give to first time shooters is to have confidence in your self and treat it like you would a local tournament. Always remember to have fun and keep a positive attitude. Attitude is everything. Who is your archery role model? | Brady Ellison, USA Olympic Archer Other sports or hobbies: | I like to play baseball and really like to go camping with my family. Favorite subject in school: | My favorite subject in school is P.E. Future plans: | I am working on my goals for the future as we speak. I really think it would be neat to travel outside of the United States for an archery tournament. I hope that is in my future plans.

2013 Vegas Shooting Division: Young Adult Male Freestyle

How did you first get into archery? | I started archery when I was five years old when my dad gave me my first bow and taught me the basics. What is your favorite memory from The Vegas Shoot 2013? | It would probably have to be the final ends of our second day of shooting. Family members were coming in and several archery friends had come to watch me finish. After the first day I learned I wasn’t the only archery who had shot clean. The gentleman was even standing right next to me the whole day! Throughout the second day the nerves continued to build and I couldn’t help but glance once in a while at his target to confirm that he was shooting really well. The relief I had felt after I shot my last arrow and looked back to confirm from a friend that I had finished shooting a clean round again was huge. Even better was when I learned that the gentleman had also shot clean again, myself only beating him by a couple of x’s. What advice would you give to first-time Vegas shooters? | Have fun!! Don’t worry about the pressure, the lights, and the noise. Enjoy the exciting atmosphere and live in the moment. Chances are the person standing right next to you is feeling just as nervous as you, maybe even more. Trust yourself and what you can accomplish.

Other sports or hobbies: | Varsity football, track and field, and a business group called DECA. Favorite subject in school: | Anything engineering or business based.

Louisville is a city full of endless possibilities. It’s a city located somewhere between “way out there” and “feels like home”. A place known as both the “southern most northern city” and “the northern most southern city”. A place so unique, that you can pronounce our name 5 different ways – Looavul, Luhvul, Loueville, Looaville, Looeyville. It’s a place just for you, no matter how you wanna say it. Walk the streets of downtown, along Museum Row and you’ll find more galleries and museums than you can shake a stick at. And speaking of sticks, you sports lovers can see the world’s biggest bat on display at the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory. In all, Museum Row on Main houses nine original attractions all within a six-block radius, now that’s what I call convenience! Since you are already downtown, you may as well stroll along the Urban Bourbon Trail or just hang out at Fourth Street Live, the city’s premier dining and entertainment district.

Be sure to stop by our Visitors Center located downtown at the corner of 4th and Jefferson Streets, where you can pick-up literature, buy souvenirs, grab your Urban Bourbon Trail Passport, purchase discounted attraction tickets, get directions and make restaurant reservations, all with the help of friendly travel counselors. While you’re in Louisville for the National Field Archery Association Indoor Nationals make sure you see the sites soak in some of the city’s bourbon culture, and we hope you enjoy all the charm and possibilities Louisville has to offer.

Amber Risner 2013 NFAA Shooting Division: Young Adult Female Freestyle Age: 17 Hometown: Circleville, Ohio How did you prepare for this year’s National Indoor Championship? I shot a 300 round every week. What was your best memory from the 2013 season? Winning the NFAA indoor nationals. How did you celebrate your National title? I went out to dinner Who is your archery role model? Levi Morgan What are your goals for the 2014 season? I am going pro Favorite subject in school: Nursing

How did you prepare for this year’s National Indoor Championship? Arrows, lots and lots of arrows. I don’t normally shoot this target so it was fairly mandatory for me to just get back into shooting this target. What was your best memory from the 2013 season? My best memory this season, being from Canada, would have to be being accepted onto the national team going to Youth Worlds this October How did you celebrate your National title? With a nice 15 hour drive back home the next day.

Cassie Hancock 2013 NFAA Shooting Division: Youth Female Freestyle Age: 14 Hometown: Palmyra, Missouri How did you prepare for this year’s National Indoor Championship? I practiced a lot! I shot every day after school and on weekends. The weekend before Nationals I won our Missouri Bow Hunters Association State Tournament and set a new state record. That win gave me confidence going into Nationals the next weekend. What was your best memory from the 2013 season? It is a tie between going to The Vegas Shoot for the first time and winning Nationals. This was my third trip to Louisville, I had placed 4th as a Cub, then 3rd my first year as a Youth, and finally, on my third try won my silver bowl. How did you celebrate your National title? There was not very much time to celebrate right after my win because of our 6 hour drive home. We did get to stop for supper where I wanted to eat on the way home. The next morning I ate my Honey Comb cereal out of my silver bowl. My mom called it “the breakfast of champions.” Who is your archery role model? I cannot pick just one! Erika Jones is one of my favorite female archers. She is an amazing archer and when I got the chance to meet her in Vegas she was really nice. She is a great role model for any up and coming archer. Scott and Dee Starnes are great people, they always encourage me to do my best. Dan Jasa is always available to help me when I need it. Richard Potter has helped me tremendously. He has loaned me equipment, given his time, and has helped me be a better shooter. His wife, Kathy, is also high on my list of awesome people. What are your goals for the 2014 season? Win Vegas. I missed it last year by 2 points and I

Who is your archery role model? As a role model, and probably because I know him personally, would be Crispin Duenas and it isn’t so much for the aspects of his archery. However good he is at that, it’s more for what he did while in school (Getting a Physics degree) while keeping up with his archery at the same time. What are your goals for the 2014 season? Indoors, on this target as far as score is concerned is to try and shoot a clean 300 at least once. Outside from that is probably keep a better attitude while shooting and clean up my form. Favorite subject in school: P hysics or some sort Math. Lauren Goodrich 2013 NFAA Shooting Division: Youth Freestyle Limited Age: 12 Hometown: Hilton, NY How did you prepare for this year’s National Indoor Championship? I shot in a couple of leagues at Creekwood Archery, the Sunday shoots and practice when I can. What was your best memory from the 2013 season? Overcoming many obstacles to win the 2013 Championship. How did you celebrate your National title? I wasn’t feeling well the day of the shoot so the celebrating came later. Once getting home and returning to school, my teacher, Mr. Strauss, at Village Elementary had a cake for me, celebrating with my classmates and friends. Who is your archery role model? I don’t have one particular person. People in the Western New York region are very encouraging and willing to offer advice. continued on page V46 #NFAAIndoor ■ www.nfaausa.com V31

Fourth Quarter 2013


NFAA INDOOR TOURNAMENT SHOOTING RULES 1. Two whistle blasts = archers to the line. One whistle blast starts shooting and the clock. Three blasts = retrieve arrows and score. Four or more blasts = Emergency; stop shooting. STOP IMMEDIATELY. 2. You, the archer, are responsible for your equipment to comply with NFAA rules. It is also your responsibility to confirm you are shooting in the correct style and division. If you are registered in the wrong division or style, this must be corrected prior to shooting your second day’s score. 3. All archers will straddle the shooting line. When finished shooting, please step behind the line. 4. When using the NFAA Indoor Five Spot Target: An archer may shoot any of the 5 spots in any order and shoot as many arrows into any one spot as the archer desires, not to exceed the prescribed number of arrows per end. Scoring shall be five points for the combined 4 cm. X-ring and 8 cm. white ring and four points for the combined 12 cm. and 16 cm. blue rings. 5. Prior to each shooting line there will be 2 ends of practice on your assigned target. Scoring begins immediately after the two practice ends, no additional practice ends will be shot. 6. Arrows must be shot within the 4-minute time limit. If an arrow is shot after the whistle blows the highest scoring arrow will not count. If you shoot more than 5 arrows, only the lowest 5 arrows will be scored. Missed arrows are counted as shot arrows. Additionally, a penalty of one point will be assessed for each arrow shot over the prescribed 5 arrows. 7. There will be a foul line ten (10) feet in front of the shooting line. If an arrow is dropped, within the ten (10) foot foul line, while the archer is in the act of shooting, another arrow may be shot. Arrows passing beyond this line, will be considered shot. 8. Witnessed bounce outs and pass through arrows will be re-shot after scoring of the last end of that round, on a target designated by the tournament officials. 9. Maximum arrow diameter allowed is 0.422 inches with point diameter not to exceed 0.425 inches. 10. In the event of equipment failure, please raise your bow to signal an official. You will have 15 minutes to repair or replace equipment. One practice end will be allowed. The archer will be allowed to shoot practice arrows during the 15 minutes of repair time; all arrows missed during the breakdown, will be shot after the final end. Archers are granted only one equipment failure per day. 11. Each group of archers on a target butt will appoint a Target Captain and two score keepers. Arrows touching the scoring line will count for the higher value. The Target Captain shall rule on all questions on his/her target subject to appeal to a line judge. An official will not be able to make a judgment on an arrow(s) value if the target butt, target face, arrow or any part of the arrow has been touched. Judgments made by a line judge will be final. 12. Archers must record X’s and numeric values of each arrow in each scoring box on the scorecard before touching or drawing any arrows from the target. Example: Score X’s X X X 5 5 25 3 X X X X 5 25 4 13. Scorecards must have all totals correct and in the proper place. Both score keepers and the archer must sign the scorecard. A scorecard submitted with incorrect total(s) may be disqualified. 14. EACH ARCHER MUST TURN IN THEIR OWN SCORECARD WITHIN 30 MINUTES OF THE END OF THEIR ASSIGNED ROUND. TURN IN BOTH SCORECARDS, THE WHITE CARD WILL BE STAMPED BY A TOURNAMENT OFFICIAL AND WILL SERVE AS YOUR RECEIPT. All scorecards must be turned in to

a tournament official within thirty minutes after your shooting line finishes. NO EXCEPTIONS Failure to do so will result in your score not being recorded for that day’s round of competition. 15. Ties for first, second and third place in the Professional Divisions will be determined by shoot off. One practice end; then end-by-end sudden-death shoot off (maximum of two ends using regular scoring, then ends where only the x-ring scores 5 points until the tie is broken). After each end, only those still tied with the highest score will continue in the shoot off. Each archer’s placement in the tournament will be determined by the order in which he/she drops out of the shoot off. If more than one archer drops out of the shoot off in the same end, those archers will be placed based on their total score and X count, including the score and X’s accumulated in the shoot off, then first day score, first day X’s and so on. 16. Ties for first place only, in the amateur Championship (First) Flights will be determined by shoot off. Same shoot off format as above. All other ties will receive duplicate awards. 17. All protests must be in writing and turned in to the Tournament Chairman within one hour after the finish of the shooting line where the protest happened. The protest must be accompanied by $50 cash. 18. No alcoholic beverages may be carried or consumed during shooting hours at the National Tournament. Anyone caught breaking this rule will be immediately disqualified and not be allowed to complete the tournament. 19. Any equipment that impairs the hearing of the competitor will not be allowed on the shooting line. This is a safety issue and will be enforced. 20. Pro Division Dress Code applies to all NFAA Pro Sanctioned Events including the 3-Star Tour Events.

NFAA

indoor nationals

Wyatt Bamfield 2013 NFAA Shooting Division: Barebow Age: 17 Hometown: Massillon, Ohio How did you prepare for this year’s National Indoor Championship? I prepared for this year’s National Indoor Championship by practicing every day that I could around my school schedule. I drove to an outdoor sports store, and used the archery range there for at least an hour. The minimum number of arrows that I shot during these practices was 120 arrows, but usually more. Another way that helped me to prepare for the National Indoor Championship was all of the state tournaments that I attended. These other competitions gave me not only a chance to practice against other archers, but also to practice shooting under pressure and with distractions. What was your best memory from the 2013 season? My best memory from the 2013 season is twofold. The first part of my favorite memory was when I first walked into the National Indoor Championships and

saw how many people there actually were. It was by far the biggest competition I have ever been a part of. It also made me excited to see not only younger kids becoming involved but also that I will be able to continue to hone my skills and compete in archery for years to come. The second part of my favorite memory was at the end of the very last round of competition. I realized that I had competed on a National level and had won in my division. It was very rewarding having all of my hard work and practice pay off, and be proud of my accomplishment. How did you celebrate your National title? When we got home that weekend my parents cooked a special dinner for me and my family, and we told my relatives and sent them pictures of me competing. I also told some of my friends at school who have seen me practicing and were supportive of me the entire time. I have celebrated my National title by practicing even more so that I can try and win another one this upcoming year. Who is your archery role model? My archery role model is my instructor, who has been coaching me since I first started four years ago, John Woodlock. When I first started taking lessons, at the local YMCA, it was the first time I had ever picked up a bow. John was and is one of the best instructors, in my mind because he teaches you how to shoot without using new technologies like; a stabilizer bar,

sights, and a release trigger for compounds. John knows how to use all of these because he shoots recurve, longbow, and compound competitively. However, John taught me how to use just a simple recurve bow, an arrow, and my body to make the shot. While this is more difficult than using sights and stabilizers, I love shooting barebow and I love the challenges that it makes. John has always been there through my career and has always encouraged me to continue what I love to do. That is why he is my role model in archery. What are your goals for the 2014 season? My goals for the 2014 season are to compete in not only more state competitions, but to also compete in more National competitions. Another goal is to also win some of these competitions, and hopefully become more recognized in the world of barebow shooting. I also want to meet new people, make some new friends, and continue to learn more about archery along the way. However, I also have the goal that is always with me, which is to do better in some way whether it be the amount of points I score, getting more bullseyes, a tighter grouping, or even just fixing part of my technique. As long as I know that I tried my best and I learned something that will help me, I will be satisfied. Favorite subject in school: My favorite subject in school is physics and I plan on attending college and getting my degree in physics.
