The last of the Georgia outdoor contests is a part of 2019 archery history. Perhaps, those events where I competed won’t make their presence known on Wikipedia. Locally, there’re a lot of folks looking forward to practicing in a climate-controlled environment.
Shooting indoors is a nice break from shooting outside if you can afford the range fees and have time to travel back and forth. Many of us are content to practice 18 meters in backyard nature-controlled conditions.
It is still hot here in Georgia with the high today expected to reach 98°F (37°C for most of the world).* So, 18-meter practice for me begins hot and moves indoor during December though February. Along with that move goes $180.00 for the three months ($60.00 per month for anyone without a calculator or cell phone). It is pay the price or freeze; north Georgia feels cold to me during the winter so I’ll fork out the bucks.
Nevertheless, I’m looking forward to the indoor season. I know by the time we’re done with it I’ll be hankering to shoot outside.
- Note: The temperature reached 99 degrees breaking the old record high temperature of 95 degree!
