... alone in distant woods or fields, in unpretending sproutlands or pastures tracked by rabbits, even in a bleak and, to most, cheerless day .... .  I suppose that this value, in my case, is equivalent to what others get by churchgoing & prayer.  Hank Thoreau, 1857

Since you already started a MoJam thread, I 'm happy to inform everyone that they just put a MOJAM Facebook page up yesterday so that everyone can keep up with what's happening for the 20th anniversary this year.  It's officially July 19-21, but most of us come early and stay late.  :)     :BB

I've talked to Bob and we should do a white wood/yellow wood shoot off part 2! Thats what got mojam started in the first place.

Maybe a pair shoot matching a first timer with an "old guy/gal", against other like pairs?  Or an apple shoot? 
How does one get to the range off I-70?  I know where that is >:D!  Hope to see ya'all in July!

I love this idea Patrick!!! It would be interesting to see how bows have evolved, performance wise, over the last twenty years.  Plus, it would a lot of fun to compete in.
I would volunteer to help be a part of organizing this if others show interest.  I can bring a chronograph and scales.

I hope Badger will chime in. Bob said he was the one that wrote out the rulles for the first mojam.  I would love to see how much 20 years has change wooden bows by using the same set of rulles.

Believe it or not Paul, there were a set of rules that were followed.  ;)  I had to go back and reread the "turtle bow" chapter in TBB4 to remember how they went.  I think some of the rules may need to be changed a bit to get more accurate, and fair results.

All this talk of White Woods/Osage testing/challenge/quest has persuaded me to get out a nice hickory bow blank Larry aka Caveman IL some time back and get to rasping. Perhaps I''l be able to coax a shooter out of it. rasp/rasp....
