The only thing McKenzie has comparable to Rinehart is their XT series and costwise they're right up there, too. Most clubs are not going to go out and plop down the coin to replace all their McKenzies. Clubs don't have the money. I don't compete in IBO shoots or ASA for that matter, and haven't for quite some time. Both organizations do some good for the archers that attend them, but IMO all the money payouts have taken a lot of fun out of the 3D game, and it is a game.

Most clubs, at least around these parts, use IBO scoring, but do not adhere strictly to IBO rules. Most shoots are for fun and in them it's more of shoot what ya brung. There are some leagues and they have different classes but they make their own rules and classes to accomodate the recreational shooters that attend them. Makes it more fun no matter what targets are being used, which they mix and match at times.

I'd like to see both IBO and ASA come west of the Mississippi river. Sanctioned 3d shoots are non existent in Iowa.

As for the target choice, does not matter to me. I like 'em all.

Here in Ca. we don't have ASA or IBO.
We shoot CBH/SAA, they go with the NFAA rules for everything.
I would like to shoot some IBO and ASA shoots, the 35 yard max for my class would be awsome.
Every 3-D shoot I go to has targets out to 80 yards and most average at about 35-55 yards.

Don, I've read several of your previous posts on this. 80 yards is a far piece to shoot 3D. Are you guys shooting known yardage? That would account fr the loinger yardages, but that's still a long ways. Here in my neck of the woods most shoots ar just club shoots with some scattered IBO qualifiers. Yardages can get stretched to about 55, but most guys are savvy enough to realize that most attendants are of the hunting variety so keep distances to something reasonsable, meaning 45 and closer.

One fo the clubs I belong to also are members of a winter league. 5 clubs with three shoots each on a rotational basis. Starts the Sundy before Xmas and runs for 15 consecutive weeks, Sunday only. There are divisions and classes within these divisions----Open, Hunter Release, Women, Intermediates, Cadets, etc. Cost is $8 for a 30 target shoot using IBO scoring. Senior men are all lumped together with no equipment limitations. This means I am often shooting basically a hunting setup against guys shooting long stabilizers and scopes, etc. with 35 yards being max. Sometimes I place in the top 3, sometimes not. I never feel much bitterness about it. To me it's about having fun and not whether I get some little medal or something. The only person I feel I am competing against is me. Most clubs use Mckenzies, but some have a mix of Mck., Rinehart, with even some R&W's thrown in. It does make things interesting.

Berry,
The shoots are marked and unmarked, some 1 arrow and some 2 arrow shoots.
If you look up the shooting distance and rules for CBH and the NFAA it has it all listed.
As for the classes CBH and NFAA has alot less than IBO and ASA I belive.
Everyone shoots he same stakes, other than some places have Trad stakes and all the ranges have cub and youth stakes.
Other than that it's that same for everyone.
Here are the shoots here in Ca. for Sept. and Oct.
I go to everyone that has a "S" in the last column, they are for So. Ca.

I have the Ca. State 900 Championship on Sat. the 8th. and then I will be going to the shoot at the Mojave Archers range on Sunday the 9th.
I have a 3-D that I can shoot every weekend within an hours drive on my house, thats year round.
Don.

our association, 3DAAA, here in australia follows IBO (except we don't score the 11 ring) so we will go to rineharts also. our club has a mixture of rineharts and old mackenzies. i like shooting all of them.


and good luck on the weekend don

Personally I love the switch to Rinehart. My club has had McKenzie's forever, but we have hosted the R100 the last 2 years (and one more next year i think) and have taken our cut in targets and I think they are far superior to the McKenzie targets. Plus Mike from Rinehart is an awesome guy and runs a great company.

Does Easton own McKenzie/Delta?
