My friend Paola has been shooting an English long bow for a while and when I expressed my wishes to her, she let me try out her 30 pound long bow. I was able to successfully pull the full draw weight and shoot. I’m not a marksman and am glad when I hit any part of the target, but the fact that I was shooting a long bow had me on cloud nine.
I’m so excited and can’t wait to purchase my own. One of the wonderful aspects of being a member of this club is its members, like Paola. From the first day I joined, she has been friendly and welcoming and has shared her equipment with me. She’s a great person and I’m glad that I met her along with all the other members of our club. They’re the best!
Saving my pennies for an English long bow has been added to my to-do list, and hopefully by the summer I’ll be tagging along with one of my own.
