I’m not the wild and crazy type. My bachelor’s party was never going to be the strippers swinging from the rafters type of ordeal. That said, I still wanted to do something fun. When my brother got married, I flew up to where he was living at the time and a big group of his friends went to a cabin for the weekend. I only knew one other guy there beforehand, but we all bonded and had a great weekend.
For my bachelor party, I wanted to do something similar. I was lucky enough that after giving some strategic oversight, my brother planned the whole thing out – and he did an awesome job. We ate dinner at Mellow Mushroom on Friday night, which allowed the guys in town with kids to be able to join us for something – because they weren’t getting out of the house all weekend. Then Saturday morning, we drove up to Blue Ridge, Georgia. I didn’t know it at the time, but the first stop was actually a round of skeet shooting!
At one of the stations, two clay pigeons are fired at the time same, and their flight paths are such that if you wait for just the right moment, you can hit both of them with a single shot. All the guys were pumped about the possibility of hitting that perfect shot, but we were all were intimidated by it. Heck, I had a hard enough time hitting one pigeon at a time! But for whatever reason, God decided to grant me grace and on my second attempt… BANG – I did it!
The picture above is me showing off the extra shell I didn’t need that round.
A couple of the other guys were lucky enough to hit that same 2 for 1 shot, but somehow I pulled off the miracle first. Funny though, the only two guys who didn’t hit the combo had the two highest scores at the end!
Afterwards we grabbed barbecue for dinner, went to the cabin, and just hung out. Nothing crazy, just good quality time with the guys.
