I shoot longbow at Royal City, buy almost all of my stuff from Boorman's Archery store, and have a lot of fun making up targets for the Stick-League on Thursday nights. Lately though I've been printing off pictures of monsters from the old first edition AD&D books and letting Greg Marrs cut them out and make templates so that he can draw and paint up targets. He says that the ones I print are harder to see. Here are some of the targets I've had fun making up!
Another thing we like to do is shoot out the middle of twoonies on Trophy Nights. This is basically taping a twoonie to the butt, lining up 8 archers about 15 meters away, and everyone firing a least a dozen arrows at it. Eventually someone hits it. Of course the cost of arrows damaged from gettting hit by other arrows is far in excess of $2 but its the fun that matters!
I got me a bow-bird at the First Arrow shoot on 01-Jan-02! First time ever! The secret? Don't aim. Just pull back, track, and let go! It's the one time in the year that I ever use my flu-flus.
Here's at shot of me receiving "Most Improved" for the Fall 2000 Stick League. Actually, all I did was change arrows about 3/4 of the way through to some that were a little bit less crooked and had a lot more fletching on them!
Here a shot (hahaha) of me that made the front cover of the June 19, 1996 issue of the Richmond News.
