Well, the first archery tournament to raise money to buy warm clothes for some of the local kids is now in the history books, and it would have to be considered a success.
Doc, who has more initials after his name than anyone in town and therefore is considered by strangers to be smarter than anyone else, masterminded the tournament. He charged a ten-dollar entry fee and each shooter was given five shots to hit a paper cup at 75 yards. To the winner would go half the total money taken in.
Nobody won. Strange how that worked out, isn’t it?
So almost all the money went for winter coats for the kids. But not all of it.
