This is how I spent Friday night, helping Steve with the On Target trailor. He was set up in Niles this weekend at a hunting and fishing expo. It went really well, tons of kids came, I showed them how it's done. No, I helped them, but I did have fun in between waves. We got some press this weekend, two T.V. news interviews and lots of free radio advertising. It's so fun to see the kids try this, they light up when they get the hang of it. Many of our good friends volunteered with us to help cover all the hours. Expos are time consuming, but worth the effort I'm thinking. We're still figuring out the balance, the learning curve is steep, but rewarding and fun too. This will be full time for us someday soon, we hope.

It's good for me to shoot, it is my literal reminder of what my target is. It sounds corny but it's easy to lose sight of what you're aiming for. If your stance is wrong, or your arm is bent, that arrow will not reach the bulls-eye. You have to use the mental check list to fix the problems. You learn things in order for a reason, events happen, not by accident but instead to give you the perspective you need to make a better shot. I'm currently retraining my eyes so that I can shoot with my stronger arm. If that's not a metaphor for life I don't know what is.
