This archery parent is just a couple of weeks away from 44 years old. In fact, my amazing husband is sending us to Indiana for this birthday. This is a joke in the house right now, as it is during an archery tournament. Ha Ha. What does this have to do with technology? Well, it is not clear if it is just age or the fact old school, old soul is more the norm. Technology amazes this archery parent.
Tonight, as Dream a Little Dream, 80’s movie marathon is playing on Hulu, the fingers are typing this post. Trying to decide on a topic or idea to write on tonight, research on a handful of websites were visited to inspire. Tonight what caught the eye was USA Archery and the national ranking pop into view on the main screen. Clicking on the page and selecting the top name in the division…it takes one-off to Rcherz.com and the stats on all the archers. This is so cool…yep, this parent is old.
For all archers competing in the various divisions within USA Archery, there is a stats page on each archer. It was decided to click on the top Senior Male Compound archer, in the USA. It was really mind-blowing (remember my age). The information on that top archer, Braden Gellenthien, went back to competitions in 2007. The page includes personal bests, and circle and line graphs.
This is not a “plug” for Rcherz, however, it has been a great page, that this archery parent appreciates. And many others, with live results and updates on tournaments around the world. The reason this is so amazing, it that a few ideas have been swirling around in the noggin and the instincts (heart) keep it old school. Pen and paper…oh, the love for pen and paper. This is the heart talking. The head, says, nope an app…for a phone?, questions the heart. How the heck does that happen…
Technology and archery….beginning to think, that this archery parent needs to stick to blogging, at least it is still almost like pecking away on the old typewriters. It was amazingly a thought last night, that it was time to go find one at a thrift store. A typewriter to have and use. This apparent aging archery parent is thankful for technology and the effect in the archery world.
Blessings, and prayers.
This archery Parent.
Romans 8: 38:39
38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[a]neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
