Response to Thanks Ray! Anyone know where John M is this year .......
haven't been shooting much FT. My first love is really archery. The reason I took up FT was I had a shoulder injury which was caused by shooting archery twice weekly(or more) for over 40 years. My Dr asked me to enter therapy and give my shoulder a break. So My brother in law Anthony had developed an intrest in FT and suggested I give it a try as it was so similar to 3D archery. I really loved it. But more importantly I really enjoyed the FT people more than the archery world. I didn't take FT as seriously as I took archery so I think I found the shooting expierience and comoraderie more enjoyable. I met some really great people who taught me much early on and I developed some great friends as well. Well the shoulder improved and I soon realized how much I missed the cerebal sport of archery. It's just a mental therapy for me which I really enjoy.
I have only picked up the FT rig twice this year both times for a local shoot.I enjoy doing that but my dedication is to archery (as long as my body cooperates).
Good luck to you Bill. You Anthony, Hans, Ray,Bartek, Mike M, Hector are a few of the people I often miss. You never know I could end up doing it again. But for now I just really feel at home releasing arrows.
Good Luck everyone.
