    Why didn't Jake tell me???

    here i go all the way to anderson for the regions shoot, wind up the big (and only) winner in my class and never thought to sign up at easton and bohning...why didn't Jake coach me on the finer points of not finishing at the bottom or the pile...?? missed out on all the contingency $$$..while Clawed was eatin' all the donuts.

    Just wonder how it feels to be able to say that you're a reining national undefeated Senior Master in the Regional Archery Competition Tour. Hope you have a large enough hat to wear to Metropolis, cause that sun can really be a killer. Carlosii (You De Man) and to think I have to compete against you. I don't have a chance.

    What's muscle memory? At my age, I it's hard to remember having muscles, or memory.

I'm here ta tell ya now, if y'all is as sharp as a "docs" knife should be there's a moral ta be learned here --- y'all be gittin yer butt to Warren, Pa for the 3rd Regions shoot --- win it --- then go to the Classic with the same confidence as Carlosiis' goin ta Metro with.

    If its any consolation they probably wouldn't have shelled out anyway. Most of the time they have a requirement of at least 10 shooters in a class to pay contingency

    I think they made exceptions for this shoot. Several of the shooters did get their "checks" that included contingency amounts. Not sure what companies were supporting that but I'd guess Easton and Bohning...just a guess.

    i got it figured out...if Charles Young doesn't show up at warren, i could head up there and be crowned SHOOTER OF THE YEAR!! why, if i was to do that i'd probably have all kinds of sponsorship offers...till they figured it out...i guess that's why i probably won't go to warren.

    I really think yer missin yer callin by not goin --- If you go and win big again you could be intensely sought after greater than "Snowden". Heck, I bet Rear Admiral General Mills would be likin ta have ya as a "cover guy" on a box a Cheerios !!! AND/OR ya could wear a shooter shirt that said "Snap, Crackle, Pop" !!! Here ya gotta resumay a buildin n' ya might quit in the middle a the stream --- yer on a roll, don't quit now !!! Heck, they might even play a "drum roll" as you crossed their state line and give ya a escort to the shoot site n' the mayor give y'all a key to the city !!! There could be all kindsa fame in store for ya in the future.

    And to support you, I'll wear one of your "Snap, Crackle, Pop shirts". My bones will even provide sound effects, as I walk.
