2010 TSAA State Field Championship Summary
By TD Rick Stonebraker

2010 State Field Wrap-Up
What a wonderful weekend! We had a lot of newbie’s this year and glad to have them and hope they return. The weather on the second day was as cool as could be and very much appreciated by all. Many hours and days go into setting up this temporary state field event and it is not possible without the assistance of the TSAA members who come out on various weekends to do whatever it takes to make this event possible. Even to the point of cutting vines at the base of hundreds of cottonwood trees that choke the life out of them; and no one came away unscathed without the itching that comes along with poisonous vines. But, it has to be done and more of that needs to be done but our work parties are more than work. It is an opportunity to come out, be among friends, BBQ, bring your favorite weapon as we blow up things. In the evening, we watch across the prairie as hundreds of exotic deer graze.
Speaking of exotic, on the Wednesday just before the event, John and I lassoed a five-foot alligator to get it out of harms’ way and the morning of the event, Ed Vargas nearly stepped on a rattlesnake. It was killed and grilled for lunch. Gina said it was good!

A major thanks to Nolan Blaschke for his generous support of his land and the use of his enormous LODGE for lodging, dining, and restroom facilities. When I say thanks, it is not me personally (although I certainly appreciate help) but it is the archery community that says thanks to all who come out to make this a huge success. And those who stay afterwards to disassemble the course and put it away for next year. Too many to name there but their assistance is appreciated.


Many records were set this year, especially the Master 50+ barebow division. Both gentlemen broke all the previous records. It is always a shame when one breaks the current records but comes in second place. That shows competitive spirit and character.

Thanks to the 40 participants from the South Texas Archery club or customers of Straight Arrow Archery Learning Center. Without these young archers, archery cannot grow. “Ya’ll come back now, ya hear?”


In rodeo, they give out the “Hard-Luck” award to a cowboy or cowgirl who takes the biggest tumble during the rodeo. A “Hard-Luck” award goes to Roderick Ambrose this year. This courageous stroke survivor took a major tumble on this not-so-kind course, got back up, dusted himself off, completed the round on Saturday and came back on Sunday to finish the event; that takes tenacity and guts. Way-to-go Rod!  You the man!  Too many stories to write down so hope to see you all next year.
