Our first 4-H archery competition for the year!
Bean's first ever competition.
We actually had to divide and conquer because Missy had a softball game as well.
Dad took MJ and Bean and I took the rest to the softball game and met up with them after the game was over. Welcome to our weekends for the next month!
Ever wonder what an archery competition looks like?
Well here is the scene. A big open field.
The clubs pretty much all sit together with tents and chairs and then all the different stations are on the outskirts. This particular shoot had just three different ranges. The 3-d range was in the woods. It was really windy, that is why there are weights hanging from the tent. One club was not so brilliant and apparently their tent blew away and broke.
MJ at one of the ranges.
They are pretty strict on rules and such.
Where to stand, when you can go get your equipment, when you can begin shooting etc.
It works well.
It was actually a really nice day to be out.
They did not do awards or anything that day, but we got the scores a few days later.
It still looks like mumbo jumbo--but from what I can make out, MJ did really well in his age group. Again, it was Bean's first competition and she hadn't had much practice--so I think that we will only see improvement on her end.
Next weekend, next competition!
