Better late than never! Usually run in February, but because of Covid, the Vegas Shoot was first run virtually, but now the Championship divisions are underway at the South Point.
Wednesday the 14th was late registration, credentialing, and a practice day. Round 1 begins Thursday morning, 15 April. Round 2 is Friday the 16th. Round 3 and Finals on Saturday the 17th.
With few than 300 competitors, this is considerably less than the usual 4,000 from all over the US plus international competitors. There’s also a very small turnout from vendors, but the Shoot is happening and that’s the main thing.
Note – shooting indoors is very different to practicing outdoors. My string blur has all but disappeared in the overhead artificial lighting. The bales also leave fuzz on the arrow points that can be a little distracting if you forget to clean it off after each end.
