martelvonc: (Archers)
Yesterday I went to the Baltimore Bowmen Traditional Classic. All traditional archery all weekend! Squee!

I've been trying to get to this event for a number of years but there was always something else I had to do this particular weekend. This year I put my foot down and said NO! I'm going!. So I did.

There was so much to do and see, from two woods shoots, to a kids shoot, to an adults pendulum, lollipop shoot (courtesy of the BH archery program since we have a target shed there), vendors, and some of the best pit beef and chicken cooked over live coals I've had in some time. I also got to hang with my archery buds and laugh, and shoot, and have an all over good time.

The best part of my day was one of the main reasons I went to BBTC and that was to purchase a new BOW! I've been happily shooting a 25# recurve I got on Ebay for about 3 years now. I've had plenty of fun with it mind you but I was ready to move up to a big girl bow. After much searching and keeping in mind all the things Seamus, Janyn, and Godai told me, I found a sweet 62" Long Bow that is 31# at 28" from Elk Ridge Archery.

It shoots very nicely and is laminated on the outside with beautiful birds eye maple and has antler, string nocks. I purchased it early and then proceeded to shoot with it the rest of the day. I must say what a difference a decent bow makes. My accuracy noticeably improved even without settling in to the bow. This bow is also lighter that my old bow which is also a plus.

I need to root out the camera and I'll post photos later.

But once again *squee!!!
