Legolas I Ain't

Before leaving the hotel on Thursday afternoon, I decided to kill time by having a go at the archery contest that was going on. This bruise was the result.

It looks far worse than it is - believe me. It stung a bit at the time, but that was it, I'm amazed at the size of the bruise.

I did it on my first attempt with the bow and twanged the bowstring against my arm before letting fly with the arrow, which missed! Actually in 9 attempts I hit the target only 4 times, but still scored 150 points.

Out of the 5 women having a go at the archery, three of them, myself included injured themselves in this way. Apparently women have got an extra bone in their elbow which makes archery very difficult and you have to angle your arm slightly differently to avoid hitting the soft flesh, if only I'd known. lol.
