Trying to pop a couple of balloons – Easy right???

Trying to hit two balloons
Trying to hit two balloons

Following a very enjoyable Sunday shoot during which a few personal best scores were achieved (well done Ruby and Ryan), some of the archers decided to carry on shooting a few more ends as time permitted.  I’d been working hard with a few people who were not shooting the scoring round and I decided to put out a few balloons – just for a little fun.

Now, it weird.  You can watch archers shooting in the gold all day long.  You put a couple of harmless balloons on the boss and the archers just can’t hit them.  In fact, half the time they do everything but hit them.

No disrespect to four of our archers, but just how many arrows can you get around two balloons without hitting the balloons?

Nice try guys, but the balloons won out on the day.

All good fun though and I should point out that Martin managed to pop the balloon on his boss at 50 yards and then he went one better and broke the pin holding the balloon on the boss – Nice one.

Hmm – After this posting and the dig at the guys, I’ll never be able to shoot at AoR again <rofl>.
