bounce back

Since my last post things are definitely on the up, I have beaten Bodger in 2 competitions and well and truly beaten R.P.G. at the Dunster two way.

The first defeat was at the Waterside long western where would you believe I was top of the leader board for two dozen before things went back to normal, still I did come home with a medal, silver, so it was still an above average day. Minichamp and Goldengirl also had Silver.

On to Dunster week, and that fateful 2 way western-

R.P.G. only managed to hit the 60 yards 14 times, hee hee, and I finished 70 places above him and 190+ points above his score. Things were so bad Bodger sent him his condolences! I felt so sorry for him (not) that I didn’t enter him in the Owl shoot so he didn’t have to suffer 2 defeats in a row.

The previous day I did the field and went round with Dave Smith who acted as a very good Bodger replacement, lots of barracking and a close shoot even down the the result depending on the last target, if a tree had not jumped out in front of my first arrow I would have beaten him.

notice the annoying tree with my first arrow in it.

Golden girl came to Dunster for a couple of days and enjoyed it so much she intends to be back next year.

The Owl shoot was last weekend and several of us went, once again it was a great result Bodger getting beaten by me!!!

What do you notice different between the two photos, thats right the longbow pair seem to be missing I wonder why could it be,was it because I was fifth and Bodger wasn’t even that good?

The good ones are
