    Older than once was here; Open C - 40 yards. There ain't a club around that has 40 yards max. 45 and 50 all the time. Us younger geezers (?) did this past weekend. So this "pup" of some late 30s took first by 1 point, 2nd was 65 years old, 3rd was 64 years old and I believe 4th was 62 years old. Yes, small turn out, but we were there. 58 total I think. Regardless, 45 yards didn't bothers us one bit.

      However, I tend to agree with him.
      Sorry, wasn't aware that the post count had just be reset. I just don't understand why ASA created 3 Sr. Open classes and doesn't create a Sr. Bowhunter class. We have a single Sr. Open class and a Sr. Bowhunter class here in Bama. And the Sr. Bowhunter class is always a third or more larger than the Sr. Open class. Just sayin!

        To answer your question in a truthful response...I seriously do not believe there has been a strong request...in all seriousness.

          There were 12 classes last year that averaged under 20 shooters per class.
          Five where youth type classes.
          Three were ladies classes.
          The other four were, Limited, Crossbow, Traditional, and Sr. Masters.

          Does anyone really think they had a strong voice? They were created so family members could have something to do or they were throw back classes to the old days.

          I simply think ASA is missing out on a large group of shooters. The over 50 age group of men is LARGE and they seldom travel alone. They have the finanicial means to travel, they love archery, and they already have the equipment to shoot in a bowhunter type class. But, they are tired of competeing against young men with good eyesight and steady hands.

          Even though there are many more archers shooting pins in the world, ASA basically has 4 classes for adult pin shooters, Bow Novice, Hunter, Unlimited, and Women's Bowhunter.

          And us old guys would probably bring family and friends that would increase numbers in the other classes. I don't see a down side at all.

            Hey man, I'll be 49 this summer, and I agree with you.
