Re: How's a strung recurve suppose to look?

Guess when my family & I go to the local event Saturday after next that'll have archery, this bow will make an appearance after all. Maybe, if I'm lucky, the archery MiC will be able to set aside a few minutes. Wonder if I can get more of my LWMiT training done while there.
