2012 IBA Fall Festival Information
This years FF will be Aug 3 – 5 at Pine Lake Archers club grounds just north of Eldora, IA. We are ALWAYS looking for volunteers to work registration, merchandise, raffles, novelties, course set up/tear down, and other general things that need to be done. Please contact Shann or Larry about helping out (see IBA related information in the Iowa Bowhunter newsletter or click on the Board of Directors tab on the websiste for contact information). Please volunteer; we need your help.
The range and novelties will be open to the public on Friday. So come early and have some fun. The novelties will be located in the same area as last year - northeast end of club grounds and behind the pines.
Come out and enjoy the archery shoot with its many group shots and unique setup on each target. Some of these you won’t see anywhere else but here. They do a fantastic job of setting this course. Let registration know if you like it or what can be improved. There’ll be seminars, good food, archery vendors, and plenty of fun for everyone.
Refer to the agenda for what’s happening throughout the weekend and associated time frames.
Stop and visit with all the vendors, and of course, all IBA merchandise will be on sale throughout the weekend at the pavilion (don’t forget the coupon in the last Winter issue of BH). So we’ll plan on seeing ya there.
The Fall Festival is a shoot where it takes a lot of personnel to organize, set up, operate, tear down, and clean up everything throughout the weekend. The novelty area is where we are going to change things a bit. A few years ago, there were no novelties available, so we brought them back for people to enjoy. It was a good thing, but we just don’t have the personnel and volunteers to keep them going. So, the IBA is looking for any club that is interested in taking over the novelty area. That means they will be responsible for setup, operation, personnel, and cleanup; with all proceeds going to the club that is operating it. This is being done to bring in new ideas and to alleviate some of the workload of the IBA board members as it takes a lot of personnel to accomplish the Fall Festival shoot.
The IBA can give the club guidance on how to operate the novelties from past experience, and also requires someone in the club be an IBA member. One prize will be provided by the IBA to be given away, and safety must be a high concern. Please contact Larry Krohn for more information (319-360-1707 or email at email@example.com).
