    You saw her improve in the 5-spot smack down league, but she is really getting good. She shoots FBHFS class and is kicking butt! She won the southern sectional and has her eye on state next weekend (and then the ASA shoot in Paris, TX)! Wish her luck!

    She scored 598-91x at the 2 round sectional to win 1st

    Me and Dave don't mind at all that she constantly kicks our butts :frusty: :frusty: :frusty: :frusty: :frusty:

    so how about a little story of how I did at state......hmmm.....

    First Day: (Saturday) 1 o'clock line....

    So I show up, do my pre-practice rounds... doing good. Shoot my official practice rounds.... still doing good... Round 1 - bottom target - first scoring arrow.... I nock my arrow, find the correct bow hand placement, pull back, settle in, aim... and let down... Don't want to rush the shot. So I start over with the exception of nocking the arrow.... find the correct bow hand placement, pull back, settle in, aim and pull through the shoot with back tension like normal... man that felt good... oh wait.... what was that sound... that sounded funny.... was that MY arrow????? So I look at the target.... WHERE'S MY ARROW?????? Glass the target... nope definitly not there.... glass the whole block... oh no!!! I shot the top target, but not just the top right x spot.... I shot the top of the top target..... I was aiming at bottom and shot 3 feet above my target!!!! Way to go me... bummer... But what happened?????

    So at this point I'm kinda upset... and I get mad at myself... shot 4 x's after that... So first round 4x's and a big fat ZERO! So I shake it off and shoot the next round clean.

    3rd round.... I'm looking at my STS and see a bunch of damage to the side of the rubber where my cable has been hitting it. So I call equipment failure to fix it and miss round 3. At this point, I fix my STS and told the Line Judge I didn't need a practice round to get back in.... in which I should have... because I was shooting to the right the whole Tournament and could have fixed it in the 3rd round! :doh: :doh: :doh:

    Ok 4th and 5th round... I shoot clean... and clean for me is no 4's... FYI.

    6th round.... what do I do on the very first arrow???? Shot the top of the top target again in the same spot! But at this point... I'm ok with it because it just confirms that it was all my fault on the first arrow and nothing was messing up on my bow... well atleast that's how I look it. So oh well...

    The only thing I can figure, is that I nocked below my d-loop on both of those shots. I'm going to try and duplicate it tomorrow. :frusty: :frusty:

    I ended up shooting a 288 40x on the first day.... which put me in last out of 6. And then I shot a 299 46x on the 2nd say which put me in 2nd. So I got 2nd at State. :p

    It's really been a learning experience! I've got to remember shot sequence!!!! Hopefully I'll do better in Paris!
