Conejo Shoot

Next weekend I'll be going to the Conejo archery event in Simi Valley. I may be vending there but I haven't heard back yet from the organizer. The event itself is up and over some pretty steep hills so my boyfriend tries to get me to stay in camp. And right now I'm pretty out of shape so I'm happy to comply. And sometimes it's a scorcher. This is maybe my fourth time there. I'm sure I could get through the course if I had to but it ruins his fun if he has to worry about me falling off a cliff all the time.

More Arrows

Guy just finished two new sets of arrows and got them off in the mail. Another guy came by to get his 2 dozen arrows and ended up ordering 3 dozen more. Wow! There goes my social life. HAHA. It takes many hours to make a dozen arrows. Everything has to be done right and done 12 times over. The shape of the feathers, the trim on the shaft, the right tip, the right nock and so on. I've made a few dozen arrows myself and I find myself losing patience with it. So my hat is off to anyone that can make dozens of arrows.
