Southeast PA Indoor 3D Shootout
Last year I started shooting 3D Archery as often as my schedule would allow. I had a great time walking through the woods (often times with my 3 year old daughter) and being challenged with various realistic shots.

I was a little bummed out when the season came to a close and had a few people recommend I give Indoor 3D a try. To be honest, the thought of taking 3D archery indoors sounded painfully boring and I had very little interest.

The 2014 Curt Peterson Southeast PA Indoor 3D Shootout kicked off earlier his month and I thought I'd give it a try. I wound up having a great time at the last two matches and hope to shoot a bunch more before USPSA Season starts.

The shootout is a 32 target course that rotates between three clubs - French Creek Outfitters (Pheonixville), Stowe Archers (Stowe), and Reading Archers (Mohton). The cost is a little more than an outdoor shoot (I have no idea why) and runs $13 for adults.

If anyone is interested in giving it a try, you can find the schedule on the Stowe Archers Website.

I also wrote a little blurb about the two events on my blog

If I wasn't in the opposite corner of the state I'd be there.

Every league my club trys to put together ends up with about half of the people that started. I was director once, never again...I busted my ass so everyone else could have fun & shoot but when it came time to set up or tear down, it ended up being just me. Kinda takes the wind out of your sails real quick.
I would have really liked to do a spot league this year (I had no idea shooting spots could be so much fun) but the timing didn't work out. I'm pretty sure this particular club was looking for registration payment up front for 10 weeks. I imagine that would cut down on drop-outs throughout the indoor season.

I know all about the problems associated with a lack of volunteers. I shoot a fair amount of competitive pistol and try to help out with setup and teardown for most of the matches that I shoot. I don't think the average shooter realizes how much work falls onto a very small group of people to make a given match happen (pistol, archery, whatever...).
