The second round of the five part buckle shoot was scheduled over the Fourth of July weekend. I would guess about half the number of participants as the Father’s Day buckle shoot. It was a strange distribution of shooters. Her mentor (pictured above) was the only Junior Female Recurve, meanwhile the Barebow division was full of all ages of shooters. In her own division, there were the same number of kids as last time.
The other two photos are taken from a former teammate, Sara Martin. In a time when everyone has a great 10 yard camera on their phone, Sara brings another perspective with a long lens SLR.
Conditions were the same, hot and windy. She decided to wear her dress from Furry Feline Creatives. I’m fairly confident she’ll never encounter another archer with the same outfit.
She stayed strong throughout the shoot and had enough energy during the elimination rounds. She came up short against her principal rival and captured a second place podium finish.
