    Took my homemade longbow out to the Senior Olympics today to shoot the American round. Lots of fun. Shot 685 out of 900. Dropped a bunch of points before I realized that my bow string was catching on my binocular strap. Should have broke 700. 214/300 at 60yards, 231/300 at 50yards, and 240/300...
