    The little things

    Well finished the beginners course today which was great and big thanks again to NAC for making it a really good and fun learning experience.
    The personal achievement bit is I got to shoot one of the clubs longbows for a few ends, nailing mostly 9s and 10s.
    granted it was a 30lb bow at about 10 yards so pretty hard to miss but still a happy bunny especially with how natural it felt.
    Well that wasnít supposed to happen!

    If it feels natural, no doubt you'll have a very satisfying shooting career.

    A recurve IS a proper bow, dude!

    - Some might even say "THE proper bow"

    he he
    for an English history nerd like me there is only one proper bow
    although I do admit the recurve is more fun than I thought it would be

    We don't get to make french kebabs anymore, mores the pity

    Freestyle isn't just more fun to shoot, it's also more fun to research/plan your wishlist for (and find loadsa 'tube vidz for).

    - Just wait until you're shooting the same distance as your Olympic heroes, with a bow that looks (to the non-shooter) identical. MAN what a feeling!

    ...anyway, if you're *that* much of a history phreak, you should throw away your 'puter, learn Latin & illuminate parchment
