Lastest on Terry Groves

Bob, doing great. No effects from chemo but femur is not completely healed and am still on crutches. Got me an Action Track Wheelchair (my wife calls it a tank) and I am hunting out of it. If all goes well, I'll be able to shoot out of it also and so you guys will see me come spring. Thanks for checking. Tell everyone Merry Christmas!  Terry

Fred Dague Breaks Them All in Vegas!

All American Subvet Fred Dague, Chuck and Tammy Jackson and Mark Isner made the trip to Las Vegas to compete in the Nevada State Shoot. Fred broke all two hundred championship singles and seventy five more in a shootoff to claim Subvet Champion. Well done Fred!

Terry Groves Update

Bob, since I broke my femur at the State shoot, I have been diagnosed with multiple myeloma. This is a cancer of the blood that destroys the bones. Hence, the mass that was in my femur. Think it broke when I fell because a hole was left when they removed the tumor. Rods & plates were in place so didn't have to have surgery. But in the xray they found a spot on my spine which they have filled with "cement." Since then with a PET scan they have found 2 other spots. I am currently taking chemo pills at home and having infusion once a week at WVU.
