Thank you for the replies, it's nice to know there are so many
wonderful people in this society willing to share their wealth of
My knowledge of archery is certainy comparable to that of an
infant. There are a couple people in my shire that are a lot more
experienced then me; one has decided to overtake the task of
organizing us. It's just that they all agree they want to wait
until spring before they really do anything, and frankley, when I
find something that interests me, I go full speed ahead. So I guess
I'm here to get a head start. :)
I do not believe we have any equiptment yet as a shire, but we do
have an outdoors location (it's just under a few feet of snow at the
moment). I have been considering going to practice with a barony
north of us, they have been meeting at an indoor archery range
during the deep freeze. Not many from my shire are interested in
this alternative because it's a long drive for them.
I do have my own recurve bow that was given to me when my
grandfather passed away, but I'm afraid to take it out and use it
(sentimental resasons). So getting my own personal equiptment is
on my list of things to do, including getting a new bow. I will
continue to keep an open mind and accept any bit of wisdom and
advice you are able to share.
