After shooting at 20 meters for months it is refreshing to start 50-meter practice. The next competition for me is not until May. In May that event is the Georgia Cup.
There are other tournament, like the NFAA Nationals in Cincinnati, Ohio and the Arizona Cup, but I’ll skip those events. They both represent a huge expense for little reward.
There are 3D shoots but 3D probably isn’t going to be a major discipline for me in 2019. Certainly, 3D is enjoyable and I was looking forward to at a minimum the Georgia ASA State Championship. Being bow poor, having one for skinny arrows only, it seems like a waste of time to train then compete against fat arrows. Additionally, I’ve e heard that in Georgia archers who compete in the State Championship must complete two qualifiers. Georgia is a big State and getting to qualifiers can be expensive.
Still there’s a pull to shoot in some 3D competitions. I’ve got an old Mathews Conquest Apex 3 stored in a case; maybe I could bring that out and shoot it for 3D. I’d sold the bow once and the fellow that bought it gave it back to me. He said, “Keep this bow and keep the money.” It is suppose to have been a good bow.
Something may pop-up between now and May, I hope so. I need to feed my urge to compete. Worse case, I run a lot of 5ks.
