That's the plan man. Typical narrow, flat grip.
Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize we cannot eat money.

Gained some serious ground last night. Got it ready for a string. I went to grab my best friend Loctite Pro, to add tip overlays, and it was EMPTY!!!! I'll grab some after work and maybe get it finish tillered tonight. This feels like the most promising stick of elm I've ever touched. Its acting and feeling just like HHB, even looks like it on the belly side.

I got my tips on and ready to tiller. Patrick gave me this wood at Marshall 2016. Cant remember what it is, but its very hard and not crumbly.

We are at the same point. Im 69" ntn, 53 @ 28. Its sanded and ready to finish. Im going to shoot it a few hundred times and see how it holds up. Then slap a sealer on it. The few shots Ive taken felt good.

That settles it. Gonna make the trek.

You're too easy Mikey! A simple stick of elm and you got suckered right in. You will love this gathering. Its totally geared around friends, food and lots of arra flingin'. We shoot several times a day between the various courses.

I'd love to see you again this summer big Dave.
