AS most of you know, I am basically new to this archery site.  I believe I have around 60 posts on various subjects.  Most of these post involves picking the brains of experienced oldtimers, and for that matter, young timers as well.  As I have stated before, I started shooting when I was around 21 years old.  I really don't know what made me pick up the bow, but once I did there was no turning back.  However, life responsibilities called and my bow was set aside for quite a while.  I am 68 now and have reconnected with one of my first loves...the bow.  It has taken some time, but I have seen a great improvement in my shooting.  I guess my main point is, you guys have been of great help and inspiration.  I may not always respond to each of your posts but I am taking in all the advice just the same.  What would you think if I told you I could hit a 3" rubber ball at twenty yards.  I don't know how you would feel, but I get kinda excited when that ball pops up into the air.  Some of you may think that it sounds like an easy shot.  Well, next is a ping pong ball.  In any case, many of you guys have helped me get to that point, and I appreciate you for it

With Much Love And Appreciation,
George

A 3" ball at 20 yards is good shooting.  Keep at it and you'll be hitting that ping pong ball in no time.  Frank

You are a great addition George, I always enjoy(and look forward to many more of) your post, because they are always thought provoking and coming from a place of humility....so much so that I believe you already know the answer, but want others to explore!

To me that’s so important  to keep these boards fresh and worth checking regularly

I don't hit it every time, but at least three out of five.

We are all teachers: by what we say or do, right or wrong.
Those who seek to learn will do so by our mistakes, as well as by our achievements.
We should never stop learning, neither should we be satisfied to be where we stand at the moment.

George, a famous archer Byron Ferguson once said that the center of a 3” ball ( in your case) is the same as the center of a ping pong ball. Put that in your head and you can do anything.
