    Martin, Devi, the NY Crew, Elysburg and

    My first trip to Elysburg was a blast. My mediocre performance was offset by meeting some new friends from NY, and by seeing my buddies Martin and Devi again.

    Almost as soon as Devi introduced me to Bill, Dutch, the other brother Bill, and Steve, they immediately lit in with their New York "charm" (read BS) and accused me of an inappropriate rendezvous with Steve in the shower. It seems that Steve is a very accomplished softball pitcher as he lobbed one right over the plate for his buddies when he announced during dinner that we had taken a shower together that very morning. Garrulous NY cynicism ensued at my expense of course. Dutch also rendered some unsolicited commentary about the ugliness of my toaster car at the top of his lungs as he drove by my humble tent site one evening. I guess acceptance does come with a price....

    My wife's Scion may be ugly but at least it's a push start with a pull start backup (thanks Dutch)--something Martin would have paid good money for Saturday morning as he tried to MacGyver his way around a faulty Ford ground wire.

    Being indisposed with car trouble, Martin deposited Devi into the care of the shooters at large. Ever resourceful, she latched onto the first sucker (me) she came to. Looking somewhat frazzled and out of sorts, she asked if I'd temporarily fill in as her bag bitch. Being the southern gentleman I freely agreed, but only on the condition she wouldn't ignore me with that competitive trance she typically gets into before she shoots. She didn't, and as a result, I gained some very technical insight on super-secret "recoil pads".

    A very efficiently run shoot, I don't think any day ran later than 3-4 PM. Great prime rib and great company--thanks for a fantastic weekend all. The whole Babin clan is off to Sparta this coming Sunday. If not sooner, we'll see everyone at the Westy Hogan's in Sep.

    Hey, Guy...you are the best bag bitch I've ever had. And those recoil pads should help with your flow...they do wonders for mine.
