TIME FLIES LIKE AN ARROW - FRUIT FLIES LIKE A BANANA

We work with several other helpers at camp.  The guy who teaches archery 
needed some assistants so DH and I got volunteered to learn enough about the skill to be able to help beginners.

We were absolutely beginners ourselves so it took a bit of work to get us to learn how to stand and how to hold the bow.

Katniss Everdeen doesn’t need to worry about competition from either of us for quite a while.

 Still, after a few attempts I managed to get all six arrows in the target.

I also learned about "string slap."  
I was given instructions on how to avoid it. 
I didn't learn from my mistakes.
