Kansas Adventures | Diamond Archery | Katniss Who? Zombies Beware.
“Pull the bow back slowly to your cheekbone, aim slightly below bulls-eye, hold your breath, then quickly release and follow through.” Our instructors at Diamond Archery stood right next to us beginners and showed us the ropes to their sport. I like to think we did pretty good…..or maybe it was beginners luck. Either way, we were learning something new and exciting. Who knew that loading an arrow in a bow, figuring out the tricks behind aiming and the quick swift smooth release of the arrow would feel so….. therapeutic? Maybe it’s the part where the arrow sticks to the bulls-eye and you made it pretty dang close to center. It felt good.
What’s all the purple shirts about you say? Glad you asked! Andrea and I joined a Kansas group of ladies called the Adventurous Babes Society to help with finding adventurous around town and this was our first outing with them. Getting to meet new people can be hard and this was our way to get with like minded ladies that enjoy doing new things. It was a bonus that they were all VERY nice and never treated us like strangers.
But Katniss, seriously, you best watch out for the ladies in purple because our skills may just surpass yours. Ok maybe I’m being completely cocky BUT, us ladies are one step closer to preparing for a zombie apocalypse.
