Katniss Everdeen has nothing on us…except for a little extra accuracy in her archery skills. We joined the growing ranks of Hunger Game wannabes and tried out archery. And this time we took an extra on our outing – my 15 year old son Will. It was a good and bad choice to take Will. Good in the sense that he had fun and took to it right away. Bad in the sense that he was good and therefore made me look even worse. Will and Erin got to keep moving their target back; I, on the other hand, had to wait a little while to improve my skills up close.
Even with my lack of skill, this was a fun “We Never.” Our instructor did scare us a bit, warning us of the possibility of ramming the arrow in our partner as we pulled them out of the target or burning our arms if we rubbed the string too close. Neither of these happened and if we had had the time, I would have shot all day.
