    I doubt that the Olympics are in her future, but there are other things, like college scholarships and maybe even a Pro career someday. That's all up to her. Right now she shows the desire so who knows. If she does win states I'm thinking of talking to some people about sponsorships of some form. She's already been promised a new bow if she wins. One step at a time.

    Barry,
    You got to be doing something right. They don't learn on their own!!! You teach well and she listens well. That's a great combo to have. Congrats to her and you!!

    No field shooting as of yet. A few local 3D shoots last summer just for fun where the max she has to shoot is 25 yards. Her bow only shoots about 180 fps and she has a slider sight so long distance is out of the question. Most she could get right now is probably about 40 yards. We'll probably try some different things this summer. Right now the focus is on the indoor championship. After that, hopefully a new bow and weather change and we'll get outdoors where the real fun is at. One step at a time.

    Just got home from a practice session with Nat. Had a talk with her mother and if everything goes as I'm hoping I'm taking her to the NFAA Indoor Championship next March in Kentucky. Tonight was her first go at the NFAA 5 spot target and she posted a 299 out of 300. Like an idiot I didn't get a final count of the X's, but it was decent and the score alone points toward good things to come.

    For now with the weather getting better it's time to move this girl outside and see about getting her ready for the PSAA outdoor target championship coming toward the end of June. There she'll have to shoot out to 45 yards, a distance we've never tried yet. She always feels skeptical about shooting longer distances, but I tell her "You shoot it the same as 20 yards. Just move the sight to a different setting, aim the bow, and execute the shot."
