    Saturday I completed my first 25 straight on the 16yd line. I started out not doing well, turning in two 21's, on my second round I tried to concentrate with only keeping my head on the stock and follow through.

    For the third round, I tried to concentrate on breaking only one bird at a time, and pushing everything else out. No easy task as my mind was just wandering all over the place. By the time I got to post 3 I thought I have been here before and in fact have previously broken 18 straight so this is no big deal and then back to one bird at a time mode "just concentrate on the next target, remember the wall chart", then on to post 5. The toughest was the last one and trying to keep my excitement down and just focus on the task at hand. It was a hard left and I hit it dead center.

    Keep your excitement and focus. My son broke his 1st 25 this year followed by his 1st 90 at 16 yds. I hope you keep going, good Luck. Al
