    SWAC Boxing Day shoot

    Got back a little while ago from my first NFAS shoot in 8 years (my second ever, as it happens). Had an absolute blast shooting at 30 targets, everything from a 3D owl to Spongebob Squarepants. Everyone in our group - yes, even me - won a medal. I came second Gent barebow (score of 446) ... out of two Ah well, better than third out of three. And I did manage to score with my first arrow on 2/3rds of the targets.

    Field Archer - Shel - was kind enough to offer to give me a lift, as his way to the shoot ran almost past my parents' front door. We went round the course with a couple of other great people, and had a great time. So, thanks Shel for your company and the lift. Very much appreciated, and I hope we get the chance to do it again sometime.

    I have some photos, which I will be uploading a bit later as soon as my sister gets home and tells me where the USB cable for her camera is.

    Good shooting John. There's a certain something about 3D's, have to admit!

    Good score too!

    South Wilts were up to there normal standards for their "Entertaining" Boxing Day shoot. From a hog roast on a spit to a kill on Bart Simpson's bum and a crocodile surrounded by Santa's remains. John shot well and was getting better as the day went on, he well deserved his silver medal.

    Nice to see Mr and Mrs (I beat Mr ) Radar UK there as well.

    Some piccies, with apologies for the poor quality of some of them. I was using my sister's camera and wasn't quite used to the settings.

    Shel, wondering whether his Christmas list for next year needs editing now he's shot Santa's reindeer:


    Pat had stolen from the post sack for the last time ...


    My target companions; Mick and Shel, and Emma taking a shot:


    Ho ho ho. My first arrow just caught Santa's hat, but we weren't sure it had so I had a second from the next peg, and nailed him in the nose:
