Bama Bound

Posted: March 1, 2016 in Uncategorized

This past weekend I traveled to Foley, Alabama to shoot in the ASA Pro/Am 3D Archery Tournament. When we arrived I was able to take some much needed time on the practice range. Excited to be at my first large 3D tournament, I found myself even more excited to have the opportunity to shoot with George Ryals (an incredible archery coach out of Georgia) and his students. Starting out cool on Saturday a.m. it warmed up quickly and turned out to be a warm and sunny day, but after buckets of rain previously in the week it was super muddy too. Although I started out a little rough, I finished strong enough to take 2nd place in the tournament. Since this was such a large tournament there was much to take in. Enjoying new friends and shooting a fun game of Aerial disks where you shoot foam disks in the air with recurve bows was extremely challenging, but loads of fun.

Staying at the RV park was awesome! In between all the archery, I was able to enjoy some fishing, fresh seafood and a little hot tub relaxation. I really hope to come back again next year and shoot in this tournament again because it was a great experience. However, next time, I’m going for 1st place.
