The best shoot of the year is coming up fast, the Chamberlin Ranch Traditional Rendezvous is on April 10 - 11.
The shoot is put on by the Traditional Bowhunters of California and specifically by Vince and Cathy Grgas.
There will be three courses to shoot over the weekend as well as novelty shoots, a last man standing shoot, a battle clout and a broadhead challenge shoot.
In addition to traditional archery there will be vendors, flintknapping, atlatls, falconry, raffles, and presentations.
While the shoot officially starts on Saturday a lot of people will be headed in early. I'm hoping to get there on Wednesday myself and I know some who are going Monday. Dry camping is available at the ranch or hotels are nearby in Solvang, Buellton, or Los Olivos.
This is probably one of the best, if not the best, shoot of the year here on the west coast. If you'd like more information about the shoot you can visit the Traditional Bowhunters of California website or email Cathy Grgas at firstname.lastname@example.org before April 3rd.
Hope to see you there!
