OMG.. This is a bucket list item… I’m trying to figure out why I’M NOT THERE” This is a “walk over coals” event.

Comment to Boomershoot 2019—Thursday
[I ask a lot of people that same question. After people attend just once they are either there or have extremely good reasons, like, “I can only afford to drive from Maryland once every two years.” Or, “I’m dying of cancer and I don’t have the strength to get out of bed.”
Today is Boomershoot Sunday. Why aren’t you here?—Joe]
Next year for sure!
Maybe, some year, I’ll be able to afford it.
We started out with “we have to do this once.” We are currently on the way home from our 5th consecutive. And just a tiny 14 hour drive left tomorrow. I think we just might illustrate Joe’s point.
I’m not there this year because I did five days in DC with my son’s school trip, arriving late Friday night. If I woke up, jetlagged, and drove to Idaho, I’d arrive in time for the dinner, then main Boomershoot day.
With no practice time, and missing out on the two days previous of training, practicing and three nights of carousing within walking/shambling distance of my hotel.
So, instead, I did BSA shooting sports day with my daughter and qualified as a Bronze Archer (250 out of 300 possible points over 5 ends) and earned my Yeoman Archer badge along with my daughter and two other girls in her patrol.
OK, it didn’t have high explosives, but it was a good day.
