I've picked up a new hobby since moving to WNY, and I've become hooked. It may have something to do with my über-competitive personality and the fact that I love a good challenge.

Last night, I did a couple of things that I never thought I would do. I did something known as "Robin Hooding" -- and I shot an "apple" that was suspended from the ceiling.

Robin Hooding an arrow is when you essentially shoot one arrow into another. I was told the shot is about 1 in 100,000. You can see an example here in 'Robin Hood: Men In Tights'.

Here's mine:

We then had our eye on apple that was hanging from ceiling all night. So at the end of the night, we all took a shot at it. I'm excited to announce that I hit it on my first attempt! My next trick will be shooting an apple off Clay's head...I'm sure he'll be up for it after seeing this pictures!
