Hey Fox Fire, Twin Oaks is a really neat club that has always had a big traditional following, but in the last fifteen years or so has really grown in it's self bow/primitive following. Their big spring shoot, the "Classic", has a self bow challenge whereby you bring a floor tillered selfbow (or you can start on one from scratch when you get there) and finish it out and shoot it that weekend in the tournament for score. They are a good bunch of guys and very helpful. They are usually at the club most weekends and receive visitors. I'll look up their contact info and post it a little later. I'd recommend the trip to anyone.

looks like Lost was posting as I was typing.

I was going to go to the Classic this year but with my wife's cancer issue we didn't make the trip.

thanks.

we made the KY tradfest and used our new/used pop up camper without much problem but we were going to need a generator for the Classic. she enjoys camping so we hope to make more of these type trips next year.

Hey guys there is a shoot at twin oaks this coming weekend it is a open shoot but as always there will be a large number of trad shooters there.

Its is a charity shoot for wounded vet hunts and kids that have lost a parent to the war good cause.

there are always a few who come on Friday evening and camp the night to get the most out of the twin oaks experience that they can.

Hope to see you there

Grant, I wasnt sure if they were going to do the camping routine for this sboot or not. I could more than likely make it if they were. Never got a clear answer.

Btw, welcome to the site.

they don't advertise it but any one who wants to camp is welcome especially anyone with a long drive.
let me know if you can make it I will plan cooking Friday night.

thanks for the welcome I have been on here for some years but rarely post I use to go by CastIron but I could not log on today but I found a later reg from when I worked in Nashville and changed the e-mail address so all is good.
