Low key, but fun-filled!

How’s that for our description of the upcoming September 9-10, 2017, “Strictly Sticks Traditional Archers” 2-Day shoot?!!

Yes, The Crew has a pretty full set-up planned, and it looks like there will be all-kinds of Archery shooting possibilities, for EVERY type of Traditional Archer, young or seasoned, experienced or new-shooter!

A hillside’s worth of 3D targets for our regular marked course; our unmarked Hunter course (where only the two people setting up the course know how many targets there’ll be!); a “Hoot ‘N Holler” course; and introducing a “block target” course SPECIFICALLY FOR BLUNT-TIPPED ARROWS (no field points or broadheads…bring some blunts!!!!).

Plus, a long-distance “50/50” target to test you. The “Fred Bear Challenge” held Saturday evening inside the club, with competitions for ages 16 and younger, then for ages 17 and older. The “Eagle Eye Competition”, with ongoing qualifying on Saturday and Sunday and the shoot-off at 1 PM Sunday.

And the kitchen will be active, too, with Breakfast and Lunch both Saturday and Sunday, and the Traditional Spaghetti Dinner around 5 PM Saturday (before the “Fred Bear Challenge”)…..all reasonably priced and satisfying.

Plus, there’s a limited amount of primitive camping space for folks who wish to arrive Friday and camp until Sunday, in the parking area edges, and under a few building structures if needed. There’s a shower room, and restrooms that will be open. And enough dead/scrap wood around the hillside for those welcomed campfires.

“Strictly Sticks Traditional Archers” knows we aren’t Denton Hill, or Baltimore, or even a few other more regional events. But, we’re not really trying to be. We’re “Strictly Sticks”, a unique little happening tucked away in Alverton, Pennsylvania. Laid-back, low-key, fun-filled. And all depending on if YOU decide to visit us!

This year, we’ll be trying a few “Announcement Schedule Boards” for folks to see at-a-glance the whats and whens things will be happening, to “tweak-up” the original flyer that’s been posted online and found at various local Archery venues. And, we’ll trying out a few other events, if all things (including the weather) are co-operative. You may even find yourself shooting from clubhouse property you’ve not been on before!

So, what’s it cost, you ask? How’s this sound: Ages 17-older, $10 per day or $15 all weekend; Ages 12-16, $5 entire weekend; Ages 11-under, FREE all weekend!

As noted above and on the flyer, “Sticks” has an inside air-conditioned building, restrooms and a shower room, and enough chairs both inside and outside to just sit-down and “take it all in”. The beverage coolers will be stocked with water or soda and will be available throughout the day.

Does this sound like YOUR kind of Archery 2-day weekend? If so, then we humbly invite you to stop over with your bow, arrows, family and friends, and make it what YOU want the weekend to be!! Once you are here, it’s all up to you!!

The Crew will be awaiting, and welcoming!!

You're most welcome, Jeff! Really looking forward to seeing any or all of your crew, and all the other friends who stop by! AND THANKS AGAIN FOR FIXING "MY TEMPORARY APARTMENT" AT THE CLUBHOUSE, FROM THE GHOSTLY FLICKERING LIGHTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Looking forward to the event Randy! You guys do make it FUN!!! Laid back... I don't know. Still trying to get the kinks out from the "lim-bow" shooting position from last year... lol! Will the "nuclear" mascot be somewhere on the course? Will there be the famous "hunt'n" course this go-a-round? You can't beat the value for a late summer tune-up before hunting season. If you don't walk away with confidence after this shoot then you may not belong in the woods this season. Let the games begin! PS, you may hear banjos late at night but don't be scared. <')))><

Hawkeye, I'll do my best not to disturb ANY ghosts, or Voices that don't belong to me. ("Where's the Greasegun??" echoing from both near and far....)

Yes, Shortdraw, Nuclear Teddy is "still out there" to our knowledge, unless the DEP and MIB came to take him away. But as long as Nuclear Creek flows through the valleys of Alverton and East Huntingdon Township, there'll be a good chance a cousin or two of his might just take to the woods "Steve Earl/Copperhead Row" style, so keep yer eyes peeled. ANd if ya think something might be looking at you, iffn you find yourself on a shaded, dark part of the course, with a banjo pluckin off in the distance, you'll probably be right!! It'll be good to see ya there, Shortdraw... (And yes, the Hunter Course will be there...don't ask me where the targets will be or how many....I get lost easily, and those targets they use confuse these color-blind eyes...!!!!!!!! They'd find me over at Scotty Field, in the middle, mumbling incoherently!!!!!)

And, as you said, "let the games begin"....

Hey there and Howdy, Longbow Dave! We create our monthly single-day shoot schedule shortly after the 2-day is over. THe sportsmens club gives us the winter months, while the "open Archery" group gets the spring and summer months. Our schedule normally runs around the 3rd Sunday of November, December, January, February, then the "Archer Appreciation" day in March. We look at The Crew's availability, work schedules, the sportsmens club's agenda, all that, before we can create the schedule. But, we do get the word out ASAP when a schedule is created. I'll keep ya in the loop, Dave!

Wapiti--M.S.: we try our best! Sometimes, we surprise ourselves (!), and sometimes we learn...to do something differently!!! Our main goal is simply to provide a weekend getaway that's Traditional Archery based. Once our friends and guests arrive, the interactions begin, groups of friends join up, and the arrows start flying. Most first-time attendees quickly meet up with regulars, and are invited to join in. Folks shoot as much as they want, or as little as they want, when they attend ANY "Sticks" event. The only "competitions" would be a particular course (the block course)at a certain time frame. There's also the "Fred Bear Challenge", which is more of a public display of how folks do when LOTS of people are watching!! We don't make it where critical judges are needed, or people are going around making sure score cards are kept a certain way!

As we say, "Low Key", and "Fun"! Thanks for considering joining us!!

UPDATE!

The sportsmens club obtained a "whole bunch" of "NEW TO US" targets, from an event held at Seven Springs this past weekend. SOOOOOOO, "Sticks" attendees will be seeing some new "faces" out on the course. (OR YOU WON'T BE, DEPENDING ON HOW WELL SOME OF THOSE REALISTIC SHOT PLACEMENTS ARE!!!!! Heheheheh)!!!

ALSO: for those who knew "Saint" George Porterfield, one of the early "Sticks" founders, well, a few years before George's passing, he gave "Sticks" a contraption...totally homebrewed...that chucks aerial disks into the air, for "flu flu" shooting. A couple of the mechanically minded daredevils from The Crew fired George's creation up last night at the club, and good golly Miss Molly, we have a new toy!!!!! A little bit of tweaking, a few welds here and there, a handful of new Bungees, and actual UL-approved wiring will have the contraption, which we think we will now call "Saint George's Guillotine" (or something similar), up and ready for some fun at the 2-Day shoot.

So, BRING FLU-FLU arrows!! Bring BLUNT TIP arrows. Bring field and target tip arrows. Keep the broadheads at home....at least for a few more years!!

Oh, you ask: what will "Sticks" be doing with some of the old 3D targets and target pieces? We will either be selling them, or auctioning them, or both...at the 2-Day shoot !!! Might be the time to get some pieces to create your own "post apocalypse" 3D critter, for your own personal shooting enjoyment!!!

That's the latest! Stay tuned.....
