My suggestion is to not stress yourself out! thats really what got me last year. i stressed over it way too much and it really brought me down. maybe just like the Newbie build along, we could do a beginner trade too? I dunno tho, just a thought! Have fun guys!!  :BB
Don't practice until you get it right. Practice until you can't get it wrong.

Stick to the build along, that is practically a virtual bow building 101 class.  It helps beginners get a lot of feed back and helps the experts remember where they once were :D

I feel that in order to have a trade everyone must have reasonable confidence that their bow will not fret at the very least.  It took me years before I could pull that off, and even so I can easily mess up.

Have you got enough Euro participants to make it work out yet?

Great! Hopefully everyone pulls through on their primary bows. If thatís the case and we have reserves available maybe you guys can get in a second trade - Iím happy to facilitate if that becomes the case, but itís up to you guys ultimately. Letís hope thatís the case.
