The Sherwood gang should be there around 1:00 Thursday. We even conned ol Jimmy Brugh into camping with us. I think he kind of likes this trad archery. Looking forward to seeing old friends again, Steve.

Here's 4 pictures from ATAR.

 
Killdeer after we shot at the Wolfabou or was it a Cariwolf?
 

Here's my little campsite in the overflow.
   

Vendor row Sunday just before I shot the final Fun Course for the week-end.
   

This is Lake Stephens
 


I was VERY pleased to get to speak a few minutes with G. Fred Asbell.  He is a man I have always admired and enjoyed reading.

I thought I did well enough on the pop-up 3D's for shooting them for the first time, they were GREAT fun.

I met up with GMMAT, PE Bowbender and a few others there as well.  We shot the comp course and went to Outback for dinner.

All in all it was a very good time.

We had a great time too. We were right across from you VaBowbender in the overflow. My two little ones ran around like crazy and they loved the rocky beach. Shoot primitive on the comp course with my hickory but not even close to the top people but only missed 5 targets and they were all rick-a-shay most of them. What a great place and fun for the kids too. really glad we made the trip out. Wify wants me to build her some arrows now and did get a great little stick of Osage for my 4yr olds bow. He shot on the fun course with me but got hurt after 8 targets thanks to me....   :mad:  But he recovered...

Daryl, I just got your strings re-served. I can mail them to you, or bring them to you in Aug....just let me know.

They had the serving going in the wrong direction, is why it was slipping.

Wow, I can't believe how many people who were there that I didn't see.  I was looking for Jeff (GMMAT) and didn't see you either Rob.  But I saw the Cool Spring Bunch lots of times (besides back at the campsite) and Kathy and Bernie and Tom.  I had fun in spite of the downpour Saturday night.  Sunday turned out real nice though and made up for it.

Rob, it was sure a blast to shoot the course with you! Seeing you walking in while I was walking out of the comp course on Saturday made me wish our timing had been a bit better. I hope you will make this shoot a regular part of your yearly routine.

I met GMMAT and Waiting for Fall, and a slew of other folks, and it boggles the mind who else I missed. I spent some time with Fred and Theresa Asbell, also, and was pleased to have found two new trad friends.

Our club is holding a shoot Sunday, July 26th, for any in the area who would like to come.
NORVA is at the entrance to Fountainhead park, near Clifton, VA.

Killdeer

Downtime Sunday night...

 
Long, long afterward, in an oak I found the arrow, still unbroke;
And the song, from beginning to end, I found again in the heart of a friend.
