Default I'm getting far too excited!

Wednesday is the day! I'm going to meet Pip Bickerstaffe and get my new bow! It's going to be so much fun!
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh.....!
I feel like running around the table yapping my head off, like those little pesky dogs.

Pip Bickerstaffe..

Renown English longbow bowyer..

Not only a bowyer but writes books on the subject of shooting the English Long bow

http://www.bickerstaffebows.co.uk/


A bow, made for my grandson..

From a stave of yew, from Monmouth, the ancestral birthplace of King Henry V.

Brought ito the shop of Pip Bickerstaffe, where it was made into a beautiful English self longbow.
Attached are some photos.










A photo of the ruins of the castle, at Monmouth, where Henry V was born..

I'm really happy!
It was a lot of fun and learned quite a bit. Now it just needs some time to sink in.

I know, I tend lock my knees haha. I'm working at everything at the same time right now. Need some time to make it sink in.

The bow shoots great, but I only shot a whopping 9 arrows yesterday. I'll get back to you tomorrow.
