6th Annual 420 Pro/Am Tournament 2015:

                             Another saga for  The 420 Target  and its acceptance is now in the history books. The 6th Annual 420 Pro/Am was our biggest ever. It is our belief  that  The 420 Target  brings challenge to the Pros without hurting the amateur shooters, and this is why we have worked so hard promoting  The 420 Target  as "Bringing the CHALLENGE BACK to Archery" for everyone.  Most all the Pros shoot 60X 300's and are bored with the normal target. We have had Pros shoot the tournament every year.  The 420 Pro Records,  are posted at the bottom of this sheet. We have had nothing but good comments on the target by all that have shot it, and this year was our 6th Annual 420 Pro/Am. ELITE ARCHERY has always sponsored The 420 Pro/Am with $200.00 Contingency money from ELITE ARCHERY if you win your class with five or more shooters in your class shooting an ELITE BOW. The  The 420 Target  has been a big step on Creekwood's trip to "Shoot Em' In The Middle".

                        M & T BANK has also been a major sponsor of our 420 Pro/Am from the first year on. They help us out with cash, pizza, pop, pens or pencils and of course helping to support our business. Dan Kubit the President of The Hilton Branch of M & T and his son Dan will be shooting the 420 Pro/Am in 2016 because they are starting to enjoy archery together this year.

When you purchase an ELITE BOW this is the man that owns the company, Peter Crawford.
He is fun, honest, caring, loves perfection and on top of that, is my friend. Pete has
sponsored the 420 Pro/Am from day one.
Go get yourself an ELITE BOW and next year, win some money and get an extra $200.00
from ELITE by winning with 5 or more shooters in your class. The 2016, 420 Pro/Am will
be combined with The Winter Cam Classic a Major 3D Tournament in 2016. Watch for the
dates in 2016.

 This is The NFAA Pro information on the 420 Target

                I believe in Ladies before Gentlemen, so here are the PROS in that order.
Christie Colin 2010 -  300 + 53 X's + 25 IX's = 378  Pro Female Freestyle Record
Christie Colin 2010 - 300 + 48 X's + 24 IX's = 372
Samantha Neal 2011 - 300 + 46 X's + 12 IX's = 358
Samantha Neal 2010 - 300 + 41 X's + 12 IX's = 353
Samantha Neal 2010 - 299 + 33 X's + 9 IX's = 341
Jesse Broadwater 2011 -  300 + 59 X's +  42 IX's =  401  Pro Male Freestyle Record
Shane Wills 2011 - 300 +  60 X's (They are little)  + 31 IX's = 391
Ricky Smith 2010 - 300 + 49 X's + 29 IX's = 378
Mike Pollard 2011 - 300 + 47 X's + 22 IX's = 369
Jeff Human 2010 - 300 - 50 X's - 13 IX's = 363 Pro Male Bowhunter Freestyle Record
Jeff Human 2010 - 300 - 48 X's - 15 IX's = 363

Christie Colin, has the Female Freestyle record of 300 - 53 X's - 25 IX's = 378 which won her a check for $335.00 in 2010.
Christie is a real competitor with class, she has four world records and is a great ambassador for archery.
Part of being
a Pro is to come down and shoot with the amateur shooters like me and she is one of the few that actually does that.
Since she moved to Pennsylvania, I miss her and her hubby Terry who owns, World Record Strings a whole bunch. He
had to name his business that, because Christi set all her world records shooting strings Terry made.
Samantha Neal won $500.00 in 2011 with a score of 300 + 46 X's + 12 IX's = 358. Sam, her mom & dad have competed thru
WNYFAB at Creekwood since she was in her early teens. Her dad, Tracy made the 420 Pro/Am stickers that so many of
you have. Sam not only shoots em in the middle, but she is a super nice person, works hard at her archery and growing
the sport of archery.

Jesse Broadwater, has the Male Freestyle record of 300 - 59 X's - 42 IX's = 401 which won him a FIRST PLACE check for
$750.00 in 2011. In 2010 Jesse & Shane were coming and they both got snowed in. The snow was so deep, his
mini-horses just walked over the fence and got out. Shane was buried even worse than that. Both Jesse & Shane shot
5 inside X rounds (picture below) and you talk about ball busting. These guys are best friends who just love to push
each other and have a great time doing it. It's who shot the first 5 inside X round and then who shot the most 5 IX rounds,
and then it was, yes but who missed an X, followed by who had the most IX's. It is a HOOT to be around guys like this. 

Jeff Human is now on the PSE Pro Staff and the reason he is, he wins a lot. He shoots Bowhunter Freestyle. Two years
ago he started coaching so if you want to improve your game, there is a local person that you could work with. He knows
how to teach the mechanics, but more than that he is a mental - mental - mental shooter. Archery at his level is about 97%
mental and if you listen to Jeff, you might learn something.

Chuck Cooley had been a Pro for a couple of years and this was the first time he had ever won as a Pro and he was
excited. Chuck was here with his daughter who is a Cheerleader in Watkins Glen, and a good little shooter herself.
He won with a score of 300 +  48 X's + 21 IX's = 369. Chuck brought on-line video to our NYS Indoor Championships
and is now the spokesman for all the NFAA Pros at their meetings.
Chuck is a Optometrist and owns Feather Visions
located in Ithaca, NY. Feather Visions is a innovator in optics in the archery industry.

Ricky worked at Creekwood for many years, just recently graduated from college and plans on spending more time with
his bow now. Before Ricky went to Vegas last year he decided to turn Pro. Many years ago Jimmy Despart was seriously
looking at Ricky to be a shooter for Martin Archery, but back then he wasn't going to the big shoots and Jimmy went off
to Albany and opened his own shop Flying Arrow II. Ricky is now has graduated from college, has bought a house and
has a good full time job, and is shooting his best ever with his new Elite VICTORY.
If you want to compete for the money, have your name associated with the Pros listed above, keep an eye on our
calendar in 2016 for the dates of the 7th Annual 420 Pro/Am Tournament and remember to bring your game. When
shooting  The 420 Target , it separates the shooters from the shooter want to bees. The 420 Pro/Am may be in multiple
venues next year so if you register early, you might find out you don't have to travel as far as you thought.    
                          LIFE  IS  GOOD !
Matt MacDonald as always made the file for the BIG CHECKS we give away as Trophies. Like always we gave away the
real checks too.

                                    LIFE  IS  GOOD !
         AND SEE YA! IN 2016
This was billed on our web site as the best thing Creekwood has ever done, and it was. Now it is the "THE BEST  THING
WE EVER DID", more than six times.
