With weather in the high 80's, humidity low, sunny with some tricky winds, the Annual Texas State Outdoor Championships were off to a great start in Bastrop Texas.

Our gracious hosts, The Boys & Girls Club of Bastrop, helped the Tournament Director, Michael Hojnacki host a fine event. While on the surface the event looked smooth, behind the scenes was another matter. It has been ten years since I have tackled hosting an event and I must say that for the most part everything went as planned. I have to thank all those who helped in the background, Tom Barker, for target faces; Rick Stonebraker, John Blaschke and Cindy Mend for target stands, butts and the trailer with all the setup inside; Jim Krueger for target faces and DOS; Linda Misenheimer and Joann McMinn for doing a fine job judging; James Loesch, Chris Yeoman for their unending support and strong backs; and for all my local Bastrop helpers, Michael Neese, Christine Kempf and husband, Judi Hoover, and all the other volunteers who I did not get names, THANK YOU! I also want to thank all those who showed up early to help set up the event and tear it down at the end.

For those who missed out on the dinner Saturday night, shame on you! What a great dinner at the Yacht Club.

Though turnout was a little low for the State Championships, we had some great shooting. Several records were broken and many were tied. A big hand of applause to Coral McMinn for some awesome shooting, breaking every distance record and total in her age group, way to go! The same goes for Tyler Janota. This young man came to me through Tom Barker. I was happy to loan a bow to him a year ago and look at what he has done! Great shooting with all of your hard work. Sorry I missed that on my first go round with the scores. To all the juniors out there, keep up the good work!

Good shooting goes out to Guy Krueger for tying or breaking several scores including total FITA, which I had held for 9 years.

It was a pleasure hosting this tournament and I hope to have the opportunity several more times to run this event in Bastrop.

Thank you again to everyone for showing up and having so much fun! Wait until next year!

Rick Stonebraker adds:
I would like to add that the State Target c-ship was a success. The location of Bastrop is an ideal location and centrally located for all to attend. The small town setting is low keyed enough that one can maneuver around quite easily and still plenty of big-town features to accommodate everyone's taste. The motels were close by and affordable. For those who are outdoor minded, the nearby Bastrop State Park has excellent camping facilities, golf course, hiking trails and a fishing lake.

The weather was warm but by Texas standards, enjoyable. The field was large, flat and easily accessible. I thought the tournament director (Mike Hojnacki) did a very fine job in hosting this event and look forward to coming here again next year if that is the plan. This event will more likely be moved to May next year.

Saturday evening, 24 archers and their supporters clustered in the Yacht Club overlooking the Colorado river and a good time was had by all. This place has charm and ambience. The food was good and the price was right. With the on going Olympics on the TV, several casual hours were spent spinning tales of the days shooting or shooting of the days past. Look forward to doing this again next year. Rick Stonebraker
