Yes, I should add poker and cooking to my hobbies. Club-making is something that I am just beginning to dabble with.

Hobby wise, I'm a musician first. Been playing an instrument of some kind since I was 4. Been playing guitar for 27 years and it is my passion.

I paint Table Top Wargaming miniatures as well. Warhammer 40K, Age of Sigmar and Infinity miniatures mostly.

I used to fly RC Helicopters, but really, you crash them more than fly them. It was soul crushing to see those beautiful machines go up into a million pieces. So I stopped. No matter how good you are at it, you will crash.

I also dabble in Videogames and PC games. Not really a hobby at this point as I play for awhile and then get bored.

Haha, I used to fly RC planes when I was young - gliders and props. I remember being at our club's airfield and when someone fired up a helo everyone would pause and watch, especially if they weren't using the big safety skids. You always pulled for the pilot, but I saw plenty of beautiful machines end up in splinters. I always kind of wondered why these guys were putting all that time and money into that type of RC flying.
The absolute perfection of existence, life, and aesthetic beauty is the work not only of evolution but of a powerful being.

I also enjoy crossbow shooting and whitetail deer hunting. My Scorpyd Orion is a beast.

Also, I have a Rectec pellet smoker that I love trying new rubs and techniques on different meats.

It's so late, been a long day and I'm so tired....at first glance I thought you wrote you had a rectal pellet
smoker and I was thinking.........that can't be right and I reread it......glad you're not smoking rectal pellets.

It's a HUGE adrenaline rush flying those things. I was getting pretty good at it, but the cost was just too high. Every crash was at least $200 in parts and hours in repairs. And you crash almost every time you go out if you are trying to improve your skills.

Oh no.....have a new activity; Run and Gun!  Definitely going to cut into my practice and playing time for golf.  Haven't really touched a club since early December.

A "Run and Gun" is a similar in spirit to an Olympic biathlon by combining both physical fitness and target shooting combines. The major difference is that in a Run and Gun there is no skiing; competitors run or walk as desired, a course that may be 3.5 to 7 miles in length.  Run and Gun competitions are most often two-gun events utilizing a center-fire rifle and pistol to complete the shooting stages that are setup along the course. Competitors are generally required to carry all equipment that may be needed with them over the entire course, including water.

Did my first event a couple of weeks ago, Waco Tactical Fitness.  Finished 30th out of 71 that entered the 3.5 mile event on Sunday.

Very challenging and loads of fun!  Next event is mid June and I believe I'm hooked.

For me it's downhill skiing, flag football, craft beer, table tennis, board games, and I just starting road biking.

I've gotten injured a couple times over the past 2 years playing flag football (broken finger and broken collarbone), so that has interfered with most other activities. I might have to give it up if it keeps getting in the way of everything else.
