Over the past few weeks, I’ve been spending my Friday Afternoons at Stowe Archers. Troy an I have been getting together to particulate in the weekly Field League. This past Friday, however, heavy rain put a damper on our plans. Instead, I headed out to Stowe on Sunday to shoot before the monthly meeting.
Not having a partner to talk to, I decided to bring a couple of video cameras along to help fill the time. I set one camera up near the target to capture my shots and another facing in my direction. The end result isn’t nearly as action packed as a USPSA Match Video.
At first, I debated even posting the video. It was dull, like watching paint dry. Rather than waste it, I uploaded it to YouTube and watched it a second time. I was surprised, the second viewing was sort of peaceful.
Anyway, the video was a lot of extra walking (which resulted in what felt like rushed shots so that I didn’t kill my cameras before I was finished with the course) and I’m not sure if I’ll be doing more in the future. In the event that I do more recordings, I’ll set the camera up much closer to me so that I can review my form.
I walked off the course having shot 234 Points. I’m not well versed in Field Archery but I like to think that 224 Points is Par for the Course (16 Points per Target x 14 Targets) and I came out ahead. At this stage, I can’t complain about that.
