2007 Tucannon Shoot

We had a really good time camping last weekend. There were over 530 shooters there, which meant a lot of waiting in line to shoot. It was okay if you had others to talk to while you waited. Mike and the boys also went fishing. They didn't catch anything on the weekend. Mike and Andy did catch a few on Thursday and Friday though.

Our friends Martha, Luis and their family camped with us. They also cooked us up dinner on Saturday night. They have a 2 1/2 year old grandaughter that was a real trooper shooting with us. She did great on Saturday all day long. By Sunday, she was tired and really didn't want to be walking in the woods.

We stayed until the trophies were awarded. Andy got a 2nd place in his class and I got a trophy too. Those Blue Mountain Archers can really put on a shoot. They have some great targets and are very friendly. They are a great group of folks!
Here is Sadee, keeping guard inside the trailer.
Here's our trailer.
This is our group getting ready to shoot a target.

Here's Tyke, shooting his old compound bow. He has a very nice newer one that needs a couple of things done to it before he can use it.
Here's Andy shooting his Roy Coursey recurve that Mike won last year at the Moses Lake Rock Shoot.
This is what it looks like in places where they've been logging since the 2 fires there.
Andy and Sadee playing or chopping wood, I'm really not sure. I wasn't there when this one was taken.
This weekend is our club's Traditional Shoot. The course will be set-up differently this year, due to the flooded Yakima River on part of the range. There is 2-3 foot of water on the West side of the road. The ducks are having a great time on the new "lake" they have out there! At least the main range and the camping area is not flooded. In 2006, the area had a lot more water there than it does now. You couldn't even drive off the highway to get near the area. Houses were flooded and mobile homes floated off their foundations. It was pretty bad.
We are going to have a horseback archery demonstration at the shoot, bowbirds and flying pigs to shoot at. Yes, I said pigs, not live ones though.
Well, I've got a few things to finish up before the weekend. I'm going to set out some of my crochet stuff to sell at the shoot. I hope to sell a few things.

Have a great weekend everybody!
