    The more you shoot the better you will do. My boys shot low 200's last year and are now shooting 270's

    I agree with kebee4, the more you shoot the better you'll get. The only thing I can add is to shoot your game and don't worry what the others around you are scoring. Oh yeah, and have fun while you are shooting!

    That's some pretty good shooting for your first time. Are you shooting spots or 3D? The reason I ask is that on a 30 target 3D course 26x's will put you well above 200 on the score, in fact as long as you shot no 5's, your score should have been between 262 and 326 depending on the number of 8's or 10's you shot.

    I don't shoot spot's so I am not familiar with that scoring system, but if you were shooting spots, then that is a pretty good score first time out.

    Just go and have fun. Indoor archery takes practice. Many think because its 20yrds its a cake walk. Not the case on the line with others.

    You would do well eventually in tournment archery. Just got to learn the tricks and practice. Joining a bow club would be a start in right direction.

    You will improve with practice. However, you will improve a lot more and a lot faster if you can get help from a competent coach.

    If you live near DB, I think that you also live near Dean. It would be hard to find someone better than him to coach you. I don't know if he does coaching, but it would be worth finding out.

    The indoor game is one of perfection. To do that you need equipment that fits you and form that will hold together under pressure. I've found out the hard way that you can't get that without a coach.

    Also, you need to be careful, indoor spots can be very addictive

    Good luck,
    Allen
