WEll, you only beat me total score by 4pts so I don't feel too badly. Wheels made it farther than me and I actually beat her by a couple points but it's the way the individual scores go each round which is kind of interesting.
Back to what I was originally going to say though. Shooting that many arrows isn't the bad part, it's the having to go retrieve and score which is the hard part. You have to do 6 ends of 6 arrows then hike out 70meters score and come back. It wasn't too bad at first but the temp got into the 90's somewhere and by the afternoon going to 30 meters after 3 arrows became almost torture.
The gal I was shooting with was a past champ at something and is a class3 coach and was a great boost to the morale all day. Even though I got sunburned (of course I had on sunblock, but obviously not enough) I had great fun and we might go back and do again on the 9th of Sept. There is the Pacific Coast Championships there on the 14th, still trying to figure out if I can manage that. I'd have to spend the night up there and that's tough with my feathered children.
