    Hi people.<br>My name is Freek Groot.<br>I am an 17 year old highschool student, who loves (primitive) weapons.<br>I searched on the internet for some information about slingshot's and came across this wonderfull website!. <br>I Have already seen so much beautifull designs from people, and have some ideas my self too. so maybe in the future I will post my own creations. <br>a little bit more about me: <br>I play some instruments.<br>the guitar (both acoustic as electric) <br>drums<br>djembé <br>bagpipes<br>piano<br>and I play in several bands.<br>but music is not my oly hobby. <br>I love to be in the woods, <br>be one with nature. I like to go fishing (especialy flyfishing) <br>also one of my hobby's is making bows together with my older brother.<br>that takes a very long time ( we now make an bow where we have spend already over 80 hours divided over half a year) <br>but it is great to work with wood. ( I love the way you can shape the material in any form you want)<br>I'm not single anymore <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br>have met an awesome girlfriend, and we are together for 3 months now.<br>now you know already something about me.<br>and not to forget, I live in an small village nearby the small town Steenwijk.<br>I live on some sorth of farm. but we do not make money out of the animals or the land, but out of the people that visit our farm. (sounds strange, but it isn't <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cool.gif" alt="Cool" longdesc="6"> )<br>so far my introduction.<br>I love to learn more about the slingshot, and I am looking forward to hear from other people with the same point of interest to excange knowlegde.<br><br>
