I thought I'd start this thread to give a place to post shoots that are totally traditional (like Denton Hill) or at least cater to traditional archers (like Chestnut Hill Archers in Morgantown). Feel free to add shoots in your area.

You know, George, if you weren't goofing off on the computer, you could have been shooting with Bull and I tonight! He shot better than last week and neither of us lost an arrow! He still can't get past that target panic.
Steve, yeah I know. Always enjoy shooting with you and Bull but I had to work a little later last night. Plus, with neither of you losing an arrow you were probably around the course before I could have got there. How was the trip to camp? You and the Bullster shooting next week?
I may make it Wednesday. Guess the IBO Trad Shoot this weekend at the Gem City Club in McKean, PA (off I79 near Erie) will be a nice event with some big names and vendors. Counting the Erie members, I believe there will be quite a few Bowbenders there. Also hear that Rainbow Archery Club, outside of Franklin has the Bowhunter Weekend this Saturday and Sunday. However, I think it is open to both wheel and trad bow shooters.
For any traditional shooters in the Mercer County area, the Bowbenders Club is shooting indoors at Bill's Field and Stream (Rt. 18, past the Shenango Dam towards Greenville) on Sunday afternoons 4 - 6. The cost is $6 and goes directly to Bill's. Don't have to be a member to shoot, so come on out, we would like to meet you. Ask for George, Bull, Calvin or Gary. P.S. MISS YOU BUCKETHEAD.
I too like Baltimore Bowman's! You would think that you are in northern PA by the scenic courses set up. I made a selfbow there one year at a class. Each year is entertainment such as Byron Ferguson. Great Shoot!
