    ***NOTE by the webmaster: February 28-Mar 1, 2015, Rick participated in the USA Archery's National Indoor Championship held in College Station at Texas A&M. He not only broke the existing record for Men's Barebow Master, he advanced it by EIGHT points, to an all-time high of 538 (of a possible 600 points) on a 40cm target at 18 meters distance.. Barebow is a recurve bow with no sight, no clicker, and no stabilizers! Once again Rick has shown excellence in archery, much as he has done throughout his archery career!
