TJ,
Nope just the bows. :)

Well. were almost done with all the weigh ins and as anticipated it took a fair bit longer with almost twice as many bow this year so far and still a few to show up and be weighed in in this AM. Things as far as weigh ins are happening to the "T" There is alot of time put into each and every bow already with mapping out all the force draw curves and holy cow is that some time consuming work!! But... I think J Willis had a great idea to bring you this feture for this year. so give him a big pat on the back for thinking of it and going thru the trouble.
Last night brought on alot of first time meetings which to me is the highlight of something like this. lots of food and lots of booze gone by FD :lol: That boy got skillz!!! :shock: Ive never seen anyone put down a whole bottle of rum in a 5-6 hour stretch!!!! :shock: AMAZING!! :lol:

We'll try to keep yall updated and in on the fun thruought the day. I'll have some of the guys come in and make a post here and there with all of the results to follow this evening. As the guys wake up Im sure a few will jump in and give their take on last night. Right now I gotta go out and start getting things set up. WE GONNA HAVE SOME FUN!! :D

The game is ON...for sure. Yesterday was both exciting and exhausting. We set up the bows and collected force/draw data until well past my bedtime. Marc did most of the bow stringing and pulling, while I took photos and wrote down the draw weights and bow specs. I encouraged Marc and Ken while they pulled on the heavy bows and tried not to make them hold full draw too long while I took the full draw photo...lol. Well...I'm still going to get Ken back today :twisted: during the shooting because he yelled BANG! once at full draw and scared the chit out of me! I almost dropped the camera! We've got to get going so we can get there in a few minutes. I wish all of you were here to see the bows. They are incredible this year. Just one shout out...the boo backed/belly bows from Hanno are amazing...and he sent these little tiny toy bows with natural wood arrows that look like BBQ skewers. But don't get confused about their power. I shot one of those arrows that penetrated 1/4" into the solid oak beam of the party barn! FD chronoed one of them at 120 fps! I'll get some photos to day so I can show them to you on here as soon as I can. Oh, another shout-out. Hornseeker's zebrano carbon bow is stunning. Ernie, those bows you sent this year are perfect in every way. Incredible. I learned some secrets yesterday and hope to expose some of that knowledge to you later. Stay tuned.
