|Look at the concentration, but my elbow is only just high enough and fingers are not under my jaw line. So much to have to remember.|
Back here I first talked about starting archery. Having now finished my beginners course, I have advanced to the intermediate course, which is far more informal but still involves my coach Sailesh coming around and making comments about my form: as in my posture as I pull and release the bow.
Still, I know I've improved because I this week I was able to consistently hit the target at 40 yards.
We've also signed up for the May second St.Georges day shoot, so I need to practice my form and work towards upping my poundage. When I started in November I was pulling 14 pounds. I went up to 16 just after Xmas and this week I was pulling 18 pounds. All done by adjusting the limbs on my bow by a process called tillering.
NB: You can see one end of six arrows I shot here.
