Dang, I've got a cute wife! ;-) I'm glad you have a pic of her up here. She adds a touch of class to these bows! Great meeting you guys. I laugh every time I see a pic of Rob. He's a real character.
Thanks to every one for a GREAT time!!! The shooting was a blast and Josh has elected to carry everyones arrows for the next course (he's been practicing :-). That was a fun course to shoot with everyone! and Thanks John I thought that was one of my best pics!!!!!

I have been a fan of GLLI for several years and haven't missed one since 2004. I was able to shoot one course this year. It seemed like attendance was way up. I know my van was lighter heading back to the shop. Thanks to everyone who came by the booth to say "hello." Sorry I keep forgetting your names.
A quick question to all of the other attendees...who was the woodworker who made the bow rack on the raffle table? It was the arrow with six, or so pegs.
I want one!

I only got on the course once myself Larry. Thanks again to everyone that stopped by our booth to say HI
The kids range was real nice. It was also great to see a lot of loner bows and arrows for the kids. That was something missing at Compton. I know my kids liked trying some of those bows. We are in the process of getting them some better bows right now and they both found bows they liked shooting. I was able to get some feedback from them on style and weight.
The courses and targets were great. There were a lot of nice hunting range shots, some long ones to challenge, and some short ones to build confidence. I know my kids had a great time shooting. I was impressed with the number of targets put out; the yellow ribbon course could have had 50, but I lost track so I am guessing.
The silver arrow was fun. I just wish I would have thought to start gapping on round three before I got to my third arrow.
I can’t think of a better setting for this event. With camping, a lake, and the village there is a lot to do if you are not shooting.
