The 2006 Southeast Sectional 3-D completed on Sunday, 25 June with a light drizzle of rain on a beautifully set course at Smokey Mountain Archers in Tennessee.  Oly Oland, Tennessee Director and the working members of the Knoxville TN Club provided an unmarked course on Saturday and a marked course on Sunday utilizing offset 12 rings and challanging uphill and downhill shots on a heavily wooded hillside.  Although the turnout was small, the facility was inviting and the host organization simply outstanding.  Archers traveled from as far away as 800 miles to shoot on the truly exceptional facility. 
Once again we had a longbow (traditional longbow with wood arrows) shooter register in the olympic recurve (freestyle limited recurve/longbow) division not realizing that the division is a sighted shooting division following shooting equipment rules identical to those for NAA recurve.  Unfortunately, not enough of our national state directors realize the confusion for the growing number of truly primitive equipment shooters:  They see "longbow" and assume that it is the Internationally recognized unsighted longbow with wooden arrows.
