Flatliner Buckles Up

Postby Bender » Mon May 07, 2012 11:57 am

Just shot the NFAA National Marked 3D at Redding. Took first in Longbow across all age divisions.

Did some research, found records going back to 2003. Highest score in Longbow to date:
Larry Yien 2004 : 1024
Me 2012 : 1036

Once again there was "drama" amongst the Traditional classes. Seems some folks took upon themselves to go out and shoot from the kiddie stakes. They did post higher scores. So they did place for the Western Classic Trail shoot. But since none of them were actually registered for the Nationals and they didn't follow the rules, their scores don't count for the Nationals.

I think the high point of the shoot for me though was when my wife nailed the spot on Bigfoot at 101 yards. Pretty cool.

I wish I had some pics, but I'm too much into shooting to be diddly farting around with a camera, so I hope you'll cut me some slack.

I'll be posting this in a few other places in a while, but naturally POA is always where I go to first.

Thank you guys!
And hell yeah I would love to make it out East to shoot with you guys! All donations greatfully accepted. :D I need to find more competition!
Long sad story but my first day sucked. Found I was leading Adult Male but trailing Senior Male by 12 points. So I mentally made that guy and my buddy Nico who shoots recurve my "competition." Its like I don't shoot well under pressure, yet I need to have pressure in order to shoot well. Even if I have to manufacture that pressure. (I don't get it either.)
And tc what you sed about Redding is pretty damned accurate. I've been all over the country, and folks out in the Midwest and back East often have really interesting ideas of what Kalifornia is like. Its as if its all one giant LA or San Francisco. Had a guy from Arizona in our group who travels to the Midwest and East to shoot a LOT of IBO. Great guy, we'll hook up with him and his wife again. But he did get a few surprises here, shooting great country on some of the toughest terrain he's ever shot. (Redding is great. There are days where the trail seems like its uphill, BOTH ways.)

Whump Sez: congratulations Bender!
I have climbed and clawed from the pits of merciless persecution and suffered the tortures of the damned ,only to be thrust head first into what can be best described as organized confusion.
