  1. First off, I would like to thank BJZ, the BOD and all of the Great Volunteers that were responsible for the 2020 version of WR. This was my 15th WR and one of, if not the best one yet. In all of these, the targets were mixed distances, heights and sizes so I didn't see anything I didn't expect. I have seen the target sizes actually increase in the last few years ( a few inches) and the SG Targets actually in closer than they were years ago (but you still gotta hit um). The circles and squares are great shapes to shoot at. (better than cowboys, snakes, indians, etc) Plus the different colors are there to help. Plus the best Fronts and Props, bar none. So, why the gripes, I think that most local Match Directors don't mix up the targets and still put them in a straight line and are content to shoot the same sweeps, multiple taps, etc all the time. This handicaps the shooter when he/she decides to attend a match like WR, EOT and others that mix it up. I remember the first year EOT used the moving ore cart on a stage. The problem on the stage for misses wasn't the cart but the Pistol Targets were in a W arrangement. In watching videos of the stage, the majority of the misses were on the Pistol Targets. (were not in a straight line). That's when I started mixing them up at my local match. Maybe those that had problems with the match this year need to think of what caused most of their problems. Once determined, approach your local MD and see if they will help by changing things around to help them "be ready" the next time. JM
  2. Congratulations! Thanks for being our PM!! JM
  3. SASS Conventions were originated to simplify the writing of stages. Instead of writing a page full of directions for everything the writer wanted, he/she had Conventions that covered most of the questions. Stage writers can and always have been able to override a convention by writing it in to the stage description. The SASS Default is just one of those things that if the writer was too lazy or forgot to write out a starting position, there was something available to direct the shooters on how to start. It also helps to make sure all posses do it the same. Problem comes when shooters want to question the convention as to what it really means and what can they do to maybe get an advantage over everyone else. Sort of like Cowboy Port Arms. So if you as a stage writer or MD don't like a convention, do as WR is doing, write your own. It is ok but some of us still use the convention and enforce how it is done. JM
