Oh Dear!

… but crying on the inside?

Archery is known as the Art of Repetition as we all want our arrows grouped tightly together. However there is one situation we DONT want them so close together and that’s the “Robin Hood”.

This ambivalence inducing event is achieved when an archer shoots an arrow then sends the next shaft perfectly into the first coring the first arrow. Exactly as the folklore hero (as played in order of awesomeness by Cary Elwes, Michael Praed, a Cartoon Fox, Russell Crowe, Shirr Shauwn, Errol Flynn and Kevin Costner)  did in his famous shootout for the Golden arrow before the Sheriff of Nottingham.

Here is the latest iteration of this noteworthy event.
