    I arrived too late for the start, everyone was gone. But I think I saw some of the hunters at the Yew Gate. Looks like it was a successful event!

    Never worry about missing an event. We all lead busy lives and I know most of us do our best to support each others events. I had to leave early as it was. Was not in the best of health last night. Concentration was sketchy at best, and I was not even celebrating St. Paddy's day yet.

    Shoot, I missed the archery. It is one of the events the Rangers used to hold that I was fond of.

    I had to move it up (real life and I got a chance to go spend a bit of time in a Cabin and ride four wheelers with my Grand Girls and I am going) and that is the most mind boggling thing to run when you have not one clue what's going on but we managed and thank you to all the Archers who got me through it......as Governor of Skara Brae I thought I was expected to do that (I would been open for the Rangers to done it) ....anyway it was an experience I'm sure they laughed (those there).....and Yes Daemon taught me the Pointy end, use the Pointy end !........... *smiles* Great Funnys

    Oh they held the tournaments when they held Skara. I think think it is great that you are continuing the tradition. Skara is after all, the City of Rangers and Archery suits it.
