Team Bows??????

Postby Gino Bruno » Fri Oct 17, 2008 6:30 am

back after the last event i jokingly said that we should not only enter individual bows, but it might be fun to also break off into teams, compile info, and then have a single person lay up a bow for that team using all the combined knowledge of the group.

is anyone still interested in that (if not, no worries)? it might be fun and we could get some friendly mud-slinging going between rival teams. :twisted: :D

Well we could put a sticky on the sign up thread and give it a couple weeks to get a good head count, then do a drawing for the teams. i'll bet we could get more guys interested in the event being part of a team too...... maybe start another sign up thread just for bowyer Teams WTT ????

how many teams? ............. would it be better to have just 2 or 3 teams?

or.....Maybe we should just go east coast, west coast, and midwest divisions....that would make for some good mud slinging in itself right there... :D


Hey Gino.... how do you put a sticky on a thread anyway? Kirk

NOW THIS IS WHAT IM TAWKIN BOUT!!!!!!!! :D I like this idea and I remember it before when Gino brought it up.What do we put up for stakes on this. Do we race for pinks? and like kirk said how do we divide up? I kind of like the east vs west thing Kirk mentioned. :o :? OH wait!!!! No I dont like that!!!!! (stupid mississippi river is on the wrong side of my state :roll: )

A point to consider; If you are on a team with someone known to make a really fast bow the rest of the guys may just say "well lets just use Ginos form and layup the way he does it." basically Gino makes an extra bow himself. and no "team" effort.I think we need to figure out how each person on each team has to do some work on each bow.
what if we drew teams on a scramble basis where your partner/'s names were drawn from a hat?



There might be a few glitches to work out on this but this is a cool deal in the makings. I think we need to figure out how to incorperate it into the event. :D
People used to say that I'd never amount to much but I can always say Ive served as a bad example!

This sounds fair. I like the idea of a traveling bow where each guy does something. The rules need to state that a new form is built for the bow. Winning team gets all bows...same number on each team as there are teams...for example four teams and four members on each team, or five teams and five members on each team. That way each member on the winning team takes home a bow. If there are extra bows, then we can blow them up on Ken's machine. :twisted: Jim

Cool... sounding good.

Now.....fact is.... ken knocked us out last year by 10 fps.... that is a LOAD of FPS.... Are we going strictly for speed here or should we come up with a composite score for these bows? Each category could be worth "X" points... add them up?? I am not the type to give up easy...but I dont know that any of us can overcome 10fps advantage from last year...

on that note...On Paleo...when that guy says the bow will shoot 10 gpp at 206 at 100% efficient...does that mean that it is IMPOSSIBLE to shoot more the 206 fps with a stick bow???

What if.... we all had to use THE SAME FORM!! and it was strictly a layup/material/shaping deal????????
