I'll see YOU at ATAR, Tom!  :readit:

Killy,

I spent the whole weekend givin ya a ration of sass! But having just found this thread, I'd say "hat's off, Gal!"  You done good bringing this to light.

Matt's older sister used to come to B'more years ago with Dad when she wasn't more'n 11 or so. And could that gal shoot!

Nothing lightens my heart more than seeing kids fishing or shooting unless it's young gals gettin after it and makin their way!

All outdoor sports need more support and the best way to keep what we've got is to share it with the female side of our world. Kids and women are our future!

Thanks, Killy. You rock!
The words "Child" and "terminal illness" should never share the same sentence! Those who care-do, others question!

Here's my daughter in Florida. Master Sgt. Cortney Spangler USAF.  She makes me proud.

Killy,
 Don't think I can keep with you and that whole new stable of yours-must be something to keep all of them feed.
 Yes, I do hope to catch up with you at ATAR, fancy getting a peek at that ACS, Morrison,& etc.
If you think you can or think you can't-you're right.

Jealousy rears its ugly head,Killy. No intention of adding, by any means, of adding to an over crowded rack as is.
 But it is fun to see what I am missing.

The only reason I can think of for girls (women) not to shoot a bow is that they just might whop us!!!!!
Far as I know the ladies have eye hand coordination and eyesight equal to or better than a mans. Nough said.

A couple of years ago at the Al state shoot this little girl and her grampa joined our group. We shot 3 complete rounds with her and she was the most enthusiastic archer I have ever seen.

We were completely spent after three rounds but she was ready to hit the course again. She ran to the first target and waited for another group so she could go out again. Before the day was up I believe she shot 5 complete, 25 target rounds.

I think her name was Kayla but am not sure. In the picture she is pointing to a pinwheel ten she made on the bear.

If you ain't seen it, go back to page one and look at the pic of that little girl in the red jacket at full draw. Her form is excellent! I should have such form! Look at her eyes; intent, focused. Serious business. If she stays with it, we'll hear from her, I promise.
