Archery and the Superbowl


This is the first year in a long time that all 4 of us will be cheering for the same team, the Indianapolis Colts. Forget da'Bears!

Well, Superbowl Sunday is tomorrow and we have an archery shoot the club is putting on. It's gotten to 28 degrees today and has been raining and hailing all afternoon. If this keeps up, it'll be us having a snowball shoot, not the Hermiston club (next week). In recent years, we've had over 250 shooters coming from all over to shoot our courses. Hopefully, the weather will not deter them from coming.

We have to be there by 6:30am to get setup for registration and breakfast. Last year, there were about 20 guys waiting by then to sign in. We open at 7:00am, but if we can be ready sooner, we may sign in folks early. The earlier they can get done shooting, the sooner they turn in score cards and the afternoon stuff can be done.

I'll be taping the Superbowl events while we're gone. We should be home by the end of the 1st quarter or sooner, if all goes well.

Two weeks ago we had the sportsman's show, which is a 3 day event. We setup a 15 lane shooting range and talk to all the interested folks that come by. It is a lot of work and it takes 20-30 people to help out. I do enjoy being there and seeing everyone. There were a lot of folks that showed up to shoot or just go to the show that we hadn't seen a months.

I'll post some pictures of it on another post.
