Every time the archers at the Ontario Spring Classic strode up the many-more-metres-than-I-shoot to score and collect, crazy dramatic big rock tunes blared out of the speakers and I thought, "Gee, they're taking the 'Classic' in the name and totally running with it.." Honestly, I was disarmed to hear this level of old rocky rock unaccompanied by big hair and a cloud of smoke. And come on: for Def Leppard's Love Bites, I was dying for the throng of archers to campily, vampily crawl upfield. Although, I realize that's no way to - ahem - "keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars."
Of course, it's fitting because it the experience was like scanning a crowd for the Ontario (and Quebec) archery version of rockstars. My pals and I caught glimpses of Crispin Duenas, Hamilton Nguyen, Daniel Ng, Anne Kwok, Brandon Xuereb and there were surely lots more recognizable faces I didn't spot, since there were just a lot of participants.
Back to the mystery DJ: I hope you're reading this because I have a request for next time. I admit I wasn't there for the whole thing, and maybe you did this anyway but I really think I have the perfect first song. The same one that starts Apocalypse Now. You know the one. The End.
