I admire people like Blue Skeen and his generation of slingshot shooters and all they accomplished in the sport of slingshot shooting. They had no internet, cell phones, and yet they got together for what I understand was a great time. Today we can virtually call or text anywhere in the world at a fraction of what it cost back then. I know it can be costly to travel to a tournament, but it can be done fairly reasonable. The vendors in this Forum contributed greatly to helping put on a tournament. The tournaments that I went to were a great bonding experience.
