ASA State Championship Buckles
I was told that our State of Illinois are going to be giving out Plaques this year instead of Buckles at the State Championship. What's the story here? I read on ArcheryTalk that "Some People" wanted something different. Who are these people that makes the decision for ALL? Why wasn't a poll given to see what ASA members would want? ~Curt Taylor
I liked the buckles myself.
i'm waiting to hear from Tim on this one. its a Federation decision, isn't it?
btw, i only wear one pair of pants at a time so i only need one buckle...and i've already got three of 'em.
This year Georgia got buckles for "first place", and placks for "placing".
Hey Carlossi --- ya only got 3 ??? --- Yer 1 short !!! --- 1 fer yer pants, 1 fer yer quiver belt, and 2 fer a pair a shotgun bandolears to give y'all the Poncho Villa look !!!
that might of been because re went an pick them up at the office.

What you would need to do is contact your state director and voice that you would like to see the belt buckles brought back, and/or a different look to them. These sort of subjects are what is presented to us the directors.
I'm from Illinois and I don't remember the question posed. There once was asking if we wanted a fancier belt buckle if we shucked out a couple bucks more. Again, I don't remember be asked.
Heard rumors. We have a Illinois Director?
You don't even shoot sonny...

Here I thought all these years, that I just got placks cause I only placed, figgered Jake n' the other boyz hadda "buckle hoard" growin at home in their dens. Oh well, can't win em all.
Here I sit bored n' broken hearted --- rainin cats n' dogs n' bows n' arrahs here today, so we didn't go to no shoot, but theirs anuther shoot tamarrah if it ain't rainin we'll blast off at first light in the mornin to go to it.
I still think a "Texas Style Buckle"'d be nice for Classic 1st place.--- them are real eye-ketchers.
I think the "state" buckles are fine the way they have been --- BUT, the "Classic" buckle should be fancier like the "Texas" buckle to set it aside in looks from state buckles, cause the Classic is more a special event than a state level shoot.
