Archery updates

Not much to update other than I’m under a rock called rehearsal and production! Everything But the Cat… is coming along nicely and soon enough I will be in rehearsal for The Parliamentarians in May.

What do I do to unwind from all the scheduling and memorization rehearsals? This: archery. I have been a few times this year and both times have been cold! But really I can’t get enough.

Here’s a video of me trying a Hungarian Horsemans bow:  http://instagram.com/p/nROJlKSW1W/

notice that it anchors to your chest and not your eye! That messed me up so much! But it’s really interesting to feel the different approach to mounted archery – it’s true, anchoring to your face/eye (Hunger Games style) makes for a very bouncy shot once on the horse. If you anchor to your chest it is much easier. I can’t wait to try this on a horse!
