Drunk??? I don't make that much money.

To use a bow and an arrow to do what??  Make kindling?  Olympic sports is
not what we do.  SCA stuff is.  If you don't want to promote Ansteorra on
the"world" stage, whatever.

You all think what you want.  But, going on this shade tree archer thing is
just going to get our collective ass kicked again, and again and again.

We got gorilla stomped 3 out of 3 last year on the archer only battle.  Why?
Because of our use of pronouns!!  What in the world does that mean??  Too
much I and not enough we, that's what.  Some steps are being taken to
correct that.  However, we don't have the disipline to practice enough to
hit a bear Trimarian tuccaus.

Wake up and smell the coffee and put an arrow in the X.  Do we know where
the X is located?

I love ya all.  But I'm starting to think some are as dence as purple hart.

Shoot more arrows.  You're bound to hit something.

See, now that is the most stupid thing I've ever heard.

Accordian to Mirriam Webster, definition number 1, an archer is "a person
who uses a bow and arrow".

Archery is not about being recognized world wide.  If you're interested in
that, leave the SCA and start doing Olympic Archery.  You'll shoot at paper
all the time, and be recognized far more widely than any SCA endeavor will
ever bring you.

If its not fun, its not worth doing.  Anyone who steps to the line and is
willing to try their hand at firing arrows at targets, whatever they are, is
an archer.

Grow up, and don't post drunk,
