Hi Joe and Don...we enjoyed spending some time with you. Those sure are some fine boys you had with you. All well mannered...good firm hand shakes and look ya straight in the eye when they talk to you. You can tell the Dad's are doing a great job.

Don...we will ask for you when we stop at Big Daddy's (our favorite store) on the way to Missouri. Hmmmmm ya know I always feel like Miss Scarlet when I am in that store. Remember when she is in the restaraunt with Rhett after the war. Shes got more good food in front of her then she has seen in years...an the dessert tray rolls by...so with a mouth full she says....ohhhhhhhhh Rhett...I want that...and that....and that!

I am still tired and sore for the tournaments...sort of achey. But hey my last radiation treatment was last Monday...when we got to the shoot both days it was too late to warm up...I shot only a 150 on the first course...but jumped to 185 on the second course. That put me briefly in 2nd place...and I wound up shooting a 165 for the last course which dropped me to 3rd place in ladies traditional. The last day I got to shoot with the two best female archers in Florida...Susan Nelson and Debbie Smith who are both good friends of mine. Susan held on to first and Debbie claimed Second. Third place for me was a real accomplishment ...been through a lot this year and I am glad the chemo and radiation is over. The shoot was great fun...an awesome shoot...great targets and great target placement...lots of fun novelty games were available.

Dina, it sure was good to see you and Tom...you both looked great and seemed none the worse for the wear despite your recent trials. Looking forward to seeing ya'll again soon. Appreciate the kind words about our family. Yes, one of the many reasons Don, Jimmy, and I gravitate together is we are all proud to have our kids associate with each other, very similar (high) standards on raising them.

Tell Tom I'll never forget what he said to me as you guys walked out the door...

"You shot good once again JC, you're my hero."
"Tom, I got lucky, but I'm sure glad I'm somebody's hero."
"You are a hero to those boys, and raising them is the single most important thing you'll ever do."

That right there boils it down for all of us fathers, lest we forget in the bustle of raising them.

Bob, Chase had a bad weekend and did not shoot up to his typical level, but never gave up and turned the corner near the end of the shoot. BUT, when he's on, he's definately serious competition for most adults I might add. I'm just happy Connor is excited about anything trad. He's now talking about what animals he might like to hunt...guess I better get another job to pay for three on trips instead of just me! [clapper]

Thanks to all for your kind words, undeserving though. Now ya'll forget about this thread and move on to someone who really did something special...like the guys who went to the muzzy shoot [readit]

JC, after watching you fling a couple at Bear Camp, I thought just maybe you might could shoot. Well done.

Gregg, they'll never know how much fun we REALLY had until they come down for themselves. We drove 8hrs both ways with gas over $3.50/gallon in a large SUV loaded with men/gear and didn't bat an eye...if we can make March happen we'll be there for certain.

Thanks again guys, but honestly you do carry on too much. This was not the IBO championship or anything. There were a lot of good shooters but I certainly did not shoot a score good enough to deserve all this praise.

Great competition though, the pressure was something of a higher order than even the other big championship shoots I've been to. The scores were so close, the difference between 1st and 4th was one target. I just made one less mistake than the other fine shots there. I made plenty of them though, and am right back to practicing with the hopes I can eliminate those next time.

Anyone who says 3d shooting won't make you a better hunting shot has never been to a shoot of this caliber. Come see for yourself.
