This was the last shoot my wife (God Bless Her) and I went to before she moved on. I wasn't going to any gatherings this year but two of my buddies talked me into Marshall and now my grandkids are  bugging me about Elm Hall.

 It is a great shoot run by really hard workers who try and please everyone who attends. The Saturday night food ain't bad either.   If you are lucky you will run into the likes of Pappy, Pearl Drums, Matt and Heather Wirwicki and BJ and a hundred other fine folks..

Sounds like JEB should also be on the list of notables attending!  Be sure you get out and socialize!  I will blow my travel allowance on MoJam, and then some! Hope everyone has a good time, and good weather!

This year I should get the chance to tape off that area just  through the pines, same one we used two years ago. Ill be there a few weeks prior working on the 3D courses. That's a nice shady spot that will fit a few campers/tents.
Title: Re: Elm Hall Stick bow shoot.
Post by: Knoll on June 16, 2019, 06:45:57 pm
Looking like we will pay visit to Mom and then head up to Elm Hall. Should be there sometime Thursday.
Carol is tagging along again so, like last year, we will setup at motel in Alma and commute over to Elm Hall.
Nice eatery/brew place in Alma if you're interested in doing that maybe Fri eve.
Look forward to seeing yall!

Really looking forward to seeing you again Bill. Sure hope I can sneak a couple days in. I haven't had much time for shooting lately either.
Mike we went from cold and rainy to hot and steamy. Right now is perfect. Low 70's with a nice breeze off the lake. Not sure it the same in land and no way of knowing for Elm Hall. Hopefully it's good though.

It's really looking like it'll be the middle of our wheat harvest. I'm hoping to sneak a day in but it's not looking real good. Gotta stay optimistic though. If I can make it I have know idea when. Will be thinking of you all.

Unfortunately I haven't so much as drawn a bow Since May 25th :). Might be a tad rusty!

I'll be using 23/64 cedar arrows, so that might level the field a little. I just cant fall in love with carbons, but I cant argue how much better they are out of any type of bow and I sure own a pile of them in various styles.

You might want to stick with the cedar anyway....they will float in the river.

We started wheat harvest Sunday. Got rained out Monday afternoon. Hopefully resume today. Almost caught up spraying. I'm still hoping to sneak out but have know idea if or when that'd happen.
Have fun everyone.

Another great time with my best friends has come and gone. It seems the more we get together the less archery has to do with it. Its ALL about the people you spend time with, not bows and arrows and targets. I didn't take a single picture.

Post by: bjrogg on August 05, 2019, 08:44:23 am
I know what you mean Chris. I sure wish I could have been there. We did finish up wheat harvest yesterday. Taking the last couple loads out now. Thought about you all a lot. Glad everyone had a good time. Sure could use some pictures though. See you all another time.

Once again we had a great time at the Elm Hall shoot.  The folks there really know how to make you feel welcome.  The food Friday and Saturday night is wonderful.  The course is so much fun.  We missed BJ and Clint and Paul Newton but were glad to see so many of our friends.  Look forward to camping in the Pearly Compound again next year.
