While the temperatures continue to stay hot outside, the Forest City Heat continued their summer wave indoors in Orlando, Florida.
Forest City won in pool play, but lost to the eventual national champions at the ninth grade level. The team, who finished third overall in the nation featured Rutherford County kids, Devonte Boykins (East High), Rhoderic Ross (East high) and Travis Waldroup-Rodriguez (TJCA) in what was a 71-7 mark over the summer.

So I got my tools together and went inside just as huge drops of rain fell. It was one of those heavy downpours that the gutters can’t contain. “Well, there goes my afternoon,” I thought.

I’m not one of those professional archers who shoot their bow year-round. I am a hunter who has to wipe the dust off of it during this time of year. I know this is the period where I have to begin shooting in order to feel comfortable in various hunting situations when deer season comes about. But it’s so hot right now! And since my wife is not too keen about me setting up an indoor range down the hall in my house; I am going to have to endure the August heat for a chance at October meat.
