Archers, take the line! 11:45 AM - May 24, 2008
Saturday, after a long week of anticipation (which weight most heavily on Jen) I went over to the Pasadena archery range for their open participation session for new archers. Due partially to the weather (moderately cold and damp) and partially due to the holiday weekend, the walk-on crowd was very small, with 10 walk-ons, as opposed to their max of 60. Some weekends they get 100, and have to turn 40 people away.
It was great to be able to walk up, borrow some well-kept equipment, receive instruction on how to safely start with good form, and get to shooting. I was happy to hit the 6'x6' bale of hay, personally...
After so much anticipation, I'm glad that it turned out to be fun. I'll probably go back, and we'll see how this develops as a hobby.
