Fall Vegas 450 League at Tri-County Gun and Rod Club
Archery leagues enable shooters to improve their abilities and to focus on specific areas of improvement in a measurable fashion. Each week you are able to see your improvements via a score. Sometimes you like the score, other times you wish you could have a do over! This article is focused on the reactions of a first time archer in the league captured in the transcript of an interview.
Vegas 450 League Interview
Could you tell us a little bit about the Vegas League you are in?
Sure, it’s on Friday nights at 7:00PM at the Tri-County indoor archery range. Tri-County is in Linwood, Kansas
Tell us more about the bow you are using in the league.
I’m using a Mission Craze with a tru-glow hunter sight. I also use a QAD Ultra Release
What release do you use?
Is it a good environment to practice? Why or Why not?
I would say it’s an OK environment to practice. There’s some really competitive archers while others aren’t so much.
What’s the best part of the league?
The best part is going out and shooting for a couple hours even when the weather’s bad and it’s dark outside. It’s nice and spread out between shots and you can take as much time as you need. And you can socialize with other archers.
You mentioned there’s a lot of other archers? Is that a good thing?
Yes, it’s good to find people like you who can make recommendations. Having a lot of people means that there is not much space between archers. I’m used to shooting out in the field with entire fields between targets. Indoors you only have 3 or 4 feet between archers.
Would you recommend the league to other archers and why?
Yeah, I would recommend to others, cause there’s a lot to be learned and you can get the help of others.
A couple weeks before the league started we had the opportunity to fulfill some of our volunteer time as a family. We had a lot of fun with the league directors getting to know more about the fellow archers who would participate and the setup that would used as well as the rules. Having this opportunity allowed us to get to know the group better and confirmed that we had made a good choice in participating in the Tri-County Gun and Rod clue league.
