Tom Wins Third!

We've spent most of the afternoon watching Tom (son-in-law) playing bows and arrows! No, that's not quite true, not a green tight in sight and definitely no merry men, well actually there were quite a few, and ladies too!
Tom is really very good at this and takes it all very seriously. (I would too, now knowing that arrows cost anything up to and over £35 each!) In fact I had no idea there was soo much interest in Archery so local to me. (In another century, I kept my ponies in this field!)
Back in May, (Tom's Birthday) we (Hubby and I) thought we'd get him some archery lessons. Unknown to us, he'd already been a county winner as a youngster but stopped because of shoulder injury, so didn't really want to take up the challenge, so we got him and Emma tickets to see 'Spam' in stead...
Well, the spark was rekindled last month after meeting up with some Archery friends. Tom had ago, and ended up joining The Southampton Archery Club.
Here he is playing at his first competition for over 10 years...
He did very well and came third in his section, which I thought was pretty brilliant!
