The R100 consists of two different courses, African (exotic) and American, as well as novelty shoots and a practice range provided by the club.
Course lengths are roughly 1.5 miles each, but are much longer when walking back and forth to each target is considered. Total distance walked can be anywhere from 3-8 miles for each course depending on whether each individual walks to all targets, looking for arrows, etc..
Courses generally take most of the day to shoot, we highly encourage people to shoot just one course a day. Depending on the course traffic it can take anywhere from 4 to 8 hours to shoot 50 targets.
New this year, the R100 will feature 4 different shooting stakes for the various classes. The stakes and corresponding max yardage are below:
- Men and Women's Open - 55 yards max
- Men's Hunter, Women's Hunter, Youth Advanced - 44 yards max
- Men and Women's Traditional - 28 yards max
- Youth, Cub - 28 yards max
The club provides a variety of food and drink at extremely affordable prices, these include:
Food - Breakfast sandwiches, hotdogs, burgers, sausage grinder, meatball grinder, french fries, chips
Drinks - Water (also on course at various water stations), soda, gatorade, coffee. Alcohol is served at the bar *Shooters must be done shooting for the day and receive a stamp*
