Well, I got a surprise for you.  I don't like to shoot them either.  OK, you
all can close your months now.  Ya'll look like the catch of the day at the
fish market.

So why do I do it??  So the "Kingdom" won't look bad and maybe even look
good in comparison to the other kingdoms in this area.  Sorry, should have
given the corny alert before I said that.  The year before I started running
IKCAC in the Kingdom, we didn't even have a score in it.

Heck, I had been running IKCAC for about seven years before I even shot a
pointed arrow.  Why did I start doing IKAC?  So maybe someday I could help
out with those scores too.  I got a crossbow this year for the same purpose
and I hope to have scores in wit it this coming season.

So, there you have it.  I don't do it because I like it.  I sure don't do it
because I love it.  I do it for the Kingdom.

Yes, I know, over sharing.

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