make the game interesting. Say $10 a point as my lady would love
another trip to New York. Let me warn you however that with my
Olympic recurve you aren't going to beat me with a score in the 260s.
I admit that I am not as good with traditional equipment as I should
be. A couple of weeks ago when it was warm enough to shoot my
longbow I tried shooting a period Royal Round and FINALLY managed to
shoot a "100" (usually I'm in the 80s). Not bad on SCA standards but
definitely not great.
