Words of wisdom from my archery instructor

During my last archery lesson, we were working heavily on release and follow-through. The advice he gave me was, “Release is not a surprise. You are in control of every step of this.” And every time he passed me down the line he would say, “Release is not a surprise.”


This kept making me think two things:

1. I must be looking surprised. But I kind of can’t help it because I still think this is SO DAMNED COOL!

2. “Self, it is inappropriate for you to say, ‘Well at my age I sure as hell hope that release isn’t a surprise,’ even though it would be funny.”
