Bullseye Bulletin, August 2010

A Few Words from the MAC President.......
The heat of the summer is still upon us but just around the corner hunting season will be here.  There is not much time to practice and get those bows tuned.  The Thursday night 3D shoots last until the end of the August and we have our last 3D shoot "The Greg Sisk Memorial 3-Man Shoot" on August 28th.  You still have enough time to get your three scores in to qualify for "3D Shooter of the Year".

Last month was a busy month for shooting at MAC, with our 4-Man Team Shoot.  1st Place went to Tommy Jenkins, Brian Benson, Authur Sommers and Wade Colton.  Brian Benson had the high score with a 191.  The food was great again, thanks to all those who prepared and donated food.  Also thanks to John Barbee for donating the pig.  We also had our Annual Shoot last month.  We had a fair amount of shooters and a whole lot of fun.  Justin Lloyd won the Long Distance Shot at 104 yards.  Wade Colton won the 1st round of the Iron Buck Contest at 50 yards, while Arthur Sommers took the second round.  Wade Colton and Charlie Wright tied in the Coon Shoot and split the money.  Finally, Ray Kimble from Shenandoah Archers, won the TUFFMAN 3D shoot.  Again the food was excellent and we really appreciated all those who brought food.

Food donations will also be needed for the 3-Man Shoot on August 28th and our Annual Awards Banquet which is scheduled for September 25th.  Speaking of our banquet, I believe it will be bigger and better than last year, with more awards, great food, door prizes, and raffles for some great gear.  Please plan to attend; you just may be receiving an award.

Until Then, Wade
