    Wrapped up an uneventful 14-hour drive this evening, arriving at the field about 7:40. Gate was closed, but no biggie. This is the earliest we've ever arrived, since Hamilton was a 13 hour drive,...

    Here's my take after shooting, coaching and being around elite archers who use all three:

    Compound and Barebow are mentally demanding but physically easier. Olympic recurve is physically...

    I've tuned hundreds of bows and rarely do I find a stabilizer that is true.

    Yes. I use the flat area on either side of the riser, below the grip.

    Measure from either side. If they are not equal, you are not on plane. Knowing which direction from the plane will then let...

    Compound, barebow, recurve. I don't care. I teach them all, although admittedly I'm not as qualified in compound as the other two. There are better compound coaches to choose from in the state,...

    So then what do those kids do for outdoor nationals?

    Yes, that was sarcasm. But with a point. And my point is all the doomsday whiners who've been complaining about the choice of Northern Alabama venue since the moment it was announced last year...

    The forecast for Tues-Thurs features a high of 86 now. Thurs. is a high of 83.

    83.

    How will we ever survive Alabama?

    I'm about halfway between Austin and Houston. Halfway from San Antonio to Houston as well.

    1:15 from the Austin airport and 1:30 from Hobby and Bush Int.

    D, grab a Southwest ticket from Albuquerque to Austin, and come see me. I'd love to work with you.
  11. One of the things I'm passionate about, and that...

    One of the things I'm passionate about, and that I do because I think it will help create lifelong archers, is to get parents shooting alongside their kids. When I look back at all the students I...

    This to me, is where a lot of the question of "motivation" comes from. The pre-teen and teenage group. Here's why I say this...

    Many of us gladly work with younger archers. Why? Because the...

    To me, this is one of, if not THE most idiotic things I see in our sport as it relates to tournaments and tournament champions. But we see it all the time. JOAD indoor champion and then "Indoor...

    Monday forecast for Decatur is 87 degrees and 48% humidity. Wish I was going to be there on Monday instead of Tuesday!

    Larry, your enthusiasm is contagious. And that is the correct approach, I believe.

    However, just like student's interest can wane, so can a coach's. After hoping, working and trying to "infect"...

    Mmm, I think the folks from our club will be plenty comfortable in lower humidity and temps a few degrees cooler than we're used to. ;)

    You mean asking your question here was wasted time?

    If you had all the components, why didn't you just try it first?

    I guess I don't understand.

    Won't fly. Not enough archers competing. Maybe in a few years, but even then it's going to be tough. Gotta show the numbers first before we get ahead of ourselves. I think we should focus first...

    I have seen this. So the question remains, whose job is it to "cure" those ills. The coach or the archer?
  22. That's a good point. I think that may be the...

    That's a good point. I think that may be the case with a few archers of mine, and of some coaches I know.
  23. I've said this myself for a long time. Maybe...

    I've said this myself for a long time. Maybe it's true. But what about those who can inspire a student/athlete to go further?

    What does that look like for archers?
  24. I have to get better about requiring training...

    I have to get better about requiring training logs and holding them to their arrow counts. But because it's a club (like I said) that makes it tough. What are the consequences?

    I'm looking for...

    This question deserves it's own thread, but I kinda like this answer:

    :D LOL.

    Okay, so if I were "just" an archery coach for hire and only taught individuals, this would be a lot cleaner and easier. However, folks like Tom and myself, and others, run "clubs," not training...

    Love ya' Joe, but I'm afraid you might both be wrong.

    The nock stays on the string well below brace height. Probably 1/2" below. You could set the SS's so there is 3/8" of clearance from the...

    Well done Liz.

    Another good example of "Archers helping Archers!"

    I was there. It was bizarre. Most of the barebow archers shot poorly because of the indoor lighting messing with their sight picture. But it was pleasant! :D

    Agreed. That's some serious wisdom right there. Thanks.
