Barbour spring items are here!

    We have been unpacking Barbour spring items all day. There are some great looking pieces for men and women. Especially nice, are the lightweight, spring-colored women's pieces. We also have a few pieces from the Barbour Polo collection. Barbour is the official clothier of the Royal Calvary Polo team. These are the same jerseys that the British Royal polo team wears. Until you have a chance to stop by and see for yourself, here is a preview.

Bird Hunting at Shag's Run

       Needing to get out of the store for a bit and stretch my legs, Ryan and I put together a plan to hunt birds at Shags-Run on Saturday. The weather report looked perfect for a morning of upland hunting.  Sun and temp's in the mid 40's. We couldn't have asked for a better day.

Six Nations Rugby

Last weekend England handed Scotland a decisive loss at Twickenham with a 38-18 score.  Billy Twelvetrees scored a debut try and saw plenty of time with the ball.

France vs Wales  February 9, 2013
I am watching France vs Wales right now and Wales has so far had most of the play.  The big story of the day so far is the pitch.  It is in bad condition and pieces are rolling up with every scrum.  It has to be a factor as there is no sure footing to be had.  The folks at Stade de France have some serious work to do on this pitch.
France is powering their way forward right now and providing much excitement, but they lost the ball and Wales just cleared the ball with a good kick.
France is threatening again and Wales is holding tight.  Wales defenders a really sticking to it and making France work hard.
The possession time is on Wales side with 60% and they have been on the French side of the pitch for the majority of the time (65%), but the score is still 3-3.
We are in the second half and France was within yards of a try and instead of pushing on a kick is tried and missed.  Wrong decision!
There has not been too much excitement and the score is now 6-6.
Wales is pushing, pushing and they go to the left and with a little kick and a quick pick up by George North a try is scored for WALES!! Wales 13 France 6
The match is over and Wales has won 16-6.
Mathieu Bastareaud and Leigh Halfpenny

Scotland beat Italy early today 34-10.
I saw some clips and Stuart Hogg had an exciting breakaway try.

So now everyone has 2 points except for France.
