[Ansteorra-archery] Tor and water-bearing..

Well, I guess I can take the hit on this one. I usually bring a 5 galloon
water jug with me.  But this time we traveled lite.

While it's nice to have the waterbearers show up, I really don't expect them
to.  We're usually a long way from the main group.  Carrying water, that
far, in the heat; all I can say is God Bless'em when they do show up.  Our
legs aren't broken.

Thank you Ironwyrm for bring your jug.  At least we didn't all forget.

Personally, I like to have a jug at the archery range first thing in the
morning.  In the future, if you all need more jugs, please let me know.  I
have 4 of the blue / orange jugs and several others.  Plus, I'm sure
Middleford would loan it's as well.  It would not be the first time that
Middleford has hauled water for other events.

Let's try to do better next time.

And what about Archer's Flights?  Have we stopped doing them????

But hey!!  We had plenty of water on Sunday, so good job!!!  :)

I was not a Tor thsi last week end, how ever I have been "waterstranded" and
have takenit upon myself to make sure that I have water at any (well most)
archery shoots that I am running. I have a 5 gal water cooler that I got a
Lowes or some where for less that a doz. arrows and take it and ice and
water to the range when I run an archery shoot. It dose not take much time
or space to take along and you know you will have water. It is nice if the
water bearer has the fixing but some times "life happens" and they get
cought a little short. I fully under stand that the water ends up where the
most visable action is.
plachoya who some times does more than shoot a bow
