2006 TSAA STATE FIELD RESULTS
May 13-14, 2006
As always, a special thanks to Nolan Blaschke for allowing all of us to have fun on his exotic deer ranch. Many thanks to my co-TD John Blaschke for all his tireless efforts in making this a success. A special thanks to all those who came out and lent a hand in setting up the field - some came out more than once. Thanks goes to: Tom Barker, Greg Petrosky, Ron Harder, Steve Jurek, Mike Holman, Victor Legler, Ken and Lou Eilers, Norm McCord, Dale Garner, Deidra Dufault, and to Janet Lesak and Kathy Adams for doing the administrative work on the day of the event. If I forgot anyone, send me a note and jog my memory as any omissions were unintentional.

Thanks to the Colorado County JOAD club for creating T-shirts for the event. This was a first ever and there are several shirts still available. They are really cool as they display the archery course on the back of the shirt to insure that no one could possible get lost on the course. Contact Janet Lesak

The weather cooperated and it was dry. It was also hot and it was windy, very windy. One of the very few field shoots that has wind affecting the scores. We will make an extra special effort to move this event away from Mothers Day next year. We normally have the state field two weeks following the Texas Shootout to allow for field set-up but if we have to go back-to-back weekends, then we will do so to allow the moms to have that day for themselves and give "permission" to the dads to come play archery.

When some of the kids send in their special stories from this years state field, we will add them to the report. In the meantime, I will add my funny moment.

Target #5 is an uphill 20 meter shot. I aimed at the upper left face. I set the site CORRECTLY but still managed to shoot the arrow OVER the target. Dale Garner said he could see it climb for as long as his eyes could see it. We briefly looked for it after scoring but another group was behind us. Later Saturday afternoon, due to the kindness of Richard Locke, Lynnette and Andy True, we went back to #5. Richard stood adjacent to the target, Andy was adjacent and part way down the hill and Annette hid behind target #6 down in the mud flats. I used an older ACE arrow with a hidden crack in it that I considered expendable. When I shot over the target, Richard dropped his raised hand to signal to Andy who did the same for Lynette and all three got a good bead on the flight of the arrow. Not only did it clear the near tree tops but went clean over a couple more tall trees on the far hill almost 150 yards away. There are many hollows out there and we combed them for over half an hour. Finally Andy gave a shout and we climbed up-and-down many hills and found the expensive X-10 shaft sticking in the side of the hill almost 375 yards away. We never bothered to look for the ACE arrow - maybe another day. Thanks to the three hardy archers who helped me find my "briefly" lost X-10.

As always, if anyone finds an error in the results, please let me know and I will fix it as soon as possible but I "tried" to interpret the hieroglyphic score cards as best I could.

From the peanut gallery:

Clayton shot at a gopher at (about target 17, neither of us can remember exactly where, I'm sure Tom can tell you exactly where.) He missed. However, Colby Hensel, shot and killed the gopher on Sunday, there is a (cross) tombstone at the site. Clayton shot and killed a gopher on Target 2 or there about on Sunday. We really enjoyed the course this year. Very enjoyable. A good way to enjoy Mother's Day weekend with my kids!!!!

I enjoyed the 2006 State Field Championship, especially getting to meet some really nice people. Getting to shoot with great archers like Debbie Krienke and Staten Holmes was a special treat. On Sunday towards the end of the day our foursome noticed something unusual. It looked like a prankster had placed a 3D target next to our target. But, since we were at Blaschke's Exotic Deer Ranch we knew that there was another possibility. Sure enough, when Jordan Brown's first arrow hit the 5 ring, the 3D target …er, the deer took off!

Note: The photo in the photo gallery shows an exotic deer standing right beside the target when the shot was taken.
