Scoring     =    X  10  9           8   7              6    5           4     3              2     1

                This is an idea I got from
my friend Dennis Sheehan, from Chemung County Rod & Gun Club, that I modified a little bit. You will shoot 2 rounds of practice at 60 yards, followed by 4 ends of 5 arrows each at 60 yards. Then you will shoot 2 ends of 5 arrows each at 50 yards, shooting will stop, we will total everyone's score and the top 4 shooters will be on butt 1, the next 4 highest scores will be on butt 2 and so on. Then you shoot your last 2 ends at 50 yards and your 4 ends at 40 yards. You will be shooting with 3 other people with equal ability that day. There will be a winner on each butt. You will have a 1 in 4 chance of winning. After shooting we be eating beans and franks.
                For our first shoot, you will be able to shoot Saturday or Sunday. The shooting times will be at 8:00 am or 12:00 noon both days. Which will mean there could be up to 4 Top # 1 Butt shooters, and of course the person with the highest score, # of "X's", # of 10's, etc will be the BESTBUTT of the competition. No there will not be a BESTBUTT belt buckle. Call 392-2030 for your shooting time.
                For you western hunters this is super practice, that really builds confidence. For you local hunters, after shooting this round, your 18 yard shot will be a gimmy. You will meet some fun people, learn to read the wind and become a better shooter. Check Creekwood's calendar for the dates and time. Our first BESTBUTT will be Sat & Sun Aug 13th & 14th @ 8am or 12 noon. Call to hold your time slot for all the people you want to shoot with. The price is $12.00 including your meal. We can accommodate 16 shooters per time slot.

60 - 50 - 40 YARDS:

                This is called a 60-50-40 American Round. It is a brand new set up for us at CREEKWOOD. Last year we kind of tested the water by having the FITA targets out at 60, 50, and 40 yards. Lots of people had positive comments, so this year they are out again, and in bigger numbers.
                The targets are the big round 52" butts similar to those shot at the Olympics. You shoot 5 arrows in a END for score. There are 5 ENDS in each GAME  and 3 GAMES in a ROUND, for a total of 60 arrows shot; 20 at 60 yards, 20 at 50 yards and 20 at 40 yards. Scoring is X equals 10 (Tie Breaker), Inner Gold-10, Outer Gold-9, Inner Red-8, Outer Red-7, Inner Blue-6, Outer Blue-5, Inner Black-4, Outer Black-3, Inner White-2, Outer White-1; all others are scored as a "M" (miss). A arrow needs only to touch the scoring line to be scored as the higher value.
                Three to four shooters can score on each target at the same time so get your buddies and come have some FUN. This set-up will test your skills. For you 3D shooters or Western Big Game hunters, what better way to become confident on your shot at those long yardages during the week. We will have the targets out all spring, summer and fall. You may shoot it any time during the week that we are open, so this set up fits any-ones schedule. You need to lube your arrows on these targets. Check out our calendar for all the things we offer at Creekwood.
                This year at the Senior Games in Cortland, Ron Coyle won the  GOLD  and Ben won a  SILVER .
             Last year three of us went to Cortland and shot the Senior Games, which was the 60-50-40 American Round. It was a 50 degrees whit a 15 to 25 mile per hour cross wind in the rain. We are all going back next year, be the good lord willing. We were all in total agreement that the shoot was the most difficult shoot any of us had ever shot.

60 - 50 - 40 METERS:
                This is a brand new set-up for us at Creekwood. This 60-50-40 is what they shoot at the EMPIRE STATE GAMES. It is a FITA style shoot and this year the EMPIRE STATE GAMES were supposed to be in Rochester and were cancled by NYS.  60 meters is 65 yards 22.8 inches so it is a little tougher than the American Round. The targets are the big round 52" butts similar to those shot at the Olympics. You shoot 6 arrows in a END for score. There are 5 ENDS in each GAME  and 3 GAMES in a ROUND, for a total of 90 arrows shot; 30 at 60 meters, 30 at 50 meters and 30 at 40 meters. A perfect score is 900.
                If you pre-pay your spring or summer league, your half-price practice indoor range time will  start at the time of payment. If you are shooting multiple leagues, you will receive a 15% discount on your 2nd or 3rd league.
