Archery

More than a year ago - a few months before Tristan was born, I saw an archery place in the town I live, I told myself I would go there to try it out "one fine day". Yesterday was the day I finally got myself scheduled for it, unfortunately it has closed down, although I kind of expected that because it was almost always empty, I still feel disappointed because I finally managed to allocate time to do things that I like but I have no where to go for it now. I mean within half an hour's driving distance.






I got myself enrolled for a ten hourly archery class back in the States, at end of 2003. A coworker and I had been talking about going for it but no one takes the initiative to find out the detail, when we finally did it, I only managed to go for 3 classes because not long after that, I have decided to move back to Malaysia.






This is the bow that I purchased there, now sitting at home collecting dust. Until there's a new archery place open here, it'll have to continue collecting some more dust. I think I'm the only one living in such a small town that you can't find many things to do, this is the flip side, but still, I like it and would find other activity to do such as going to karaoke.

Nice compound bow, I hope you get the opportunity to use it again. And glad to see a copy of Solaris Internals on the shelf in the background!

The only time i manage to bow is in Club Med. Quite an experience there. And I tried the flying trapez (this one i still can't believe i did it flying like i'm in a circus) and many other things which I've not tried before.

I guess you could the Solaris internals for target practice. Sort of like killing two birds with one stone... :-)

Haha Shantanu, the Solaris Internals actually has its author's signature with "Best of luck with your Solaris effort", so I wouldn't ruin it like that, but I may consider selling it in eBay some day ;o)
