I think it is fair to say a good time was had by all. There were no score cards and instead you had five instinctive archers wondering round the wood. Chatting about bows, life and stuff, while enjoying the day and hitting a few targets along the way.
It was so relaxing to shoot round with JT, Jim and Paddy and see the wood from their fresh eyes. Thanks to Paddy for the photos, think you did really well in capturing the atmosphere of the day. It was great to see all the regulars chatting to guests about the merits of this bow over another. Then again when you have the archery media icon that is Jim Grizzly Kent there’s bound to be a few conversations about archery books and bows.
On a slightly more serious note though, its good to remember that we can get caught up in life and can easily transfer this to our hobby. The result is we start stressing about what we should be able to hit or whether the bows performing correctly and all this can develop into you not enjoying the hobby or in worse cases to target panic. I know I’m guilty of this as I’ve been concentrating on re-learning the AFB and been stressing about it.
This weekend showed that throwing away the scores and shooting instinctively is so relaxing. makes you wish you could do it every day.
Thanks for the company guys, but I have one question though, who bought lunch afterwards?
As always thanks for reading.
