I'm not doing it to spit someone else. I'm doing it because I dispise
doing something and then someone tell me I'm not doing it well enough.
*I* don't enjoy shooting RR nor IKAC. I was doing it to better the
Kingdom scores and instead I am told I'm not doing it well enough.
I have one response to that and I won't say it in polite company.

Btw, I *know* I am not a good archer. I am inconsistent because I don't
practice. On the other hand when I shoot on the line or on the field, I
am having a blast now adays, as are the other archers I am shooting

Has he ever tried it without trying to humiliate people or to promote
how wonderful he is for doing this? I've not seen that tried yet.
