That would be great! Bring Lason too if you can.

You bet. After Saturday he told me I better take him shooting at least once a month.

Stoney, I think I can accommodate you. Might could find an extra spot in the bunkhouse for you. I do have fencing that needs mending and some of the horses need re-shoeing. I'm sure you don't mind working off your housing with a few chores. Jan's a princess so she gets a spot in the house. Azz

Bill, PLEASE paint the neat little white borders on the targets so us color deficient folks stand a chance. As to Phil designing the stages that is just peachy. I will get there early and set the targets.

 

Azz, you are just not nice. Please equate all the labor to a dollar amount and let me know where to send the check.

He looked like he was having fun.

He was. He shot relatively well. Missed two each on first two stages of day and a P. All pistol mistakes. I made him do a practice round with pistols only between second and third stages and it was on! No more misses rest of day.

He is really quick with that Henry youth 22 rifle!

This is shaping up to be a great match. If Azz is writing the stages it should be a challenging but fun match.

 

The wife and I will be out of town on our vacation that weekend so I am going to miss this year's match but I'll certainly be looking forward to next year's version.

Glad you're coming Junky! :)

 

Sorry you're not Kajun. :(

 

If we get enough interest we'll have a shoot off side match Friday afternoon. They did that at Breakout and it was a blast. Anyone one interested in that let me know.

When I said set the targets, I meant set the targets for us folks that love to point shoot. Dang those front sights. I had to use them last weekend in AL and it almost killed me. You get all excited about shooting a really fast stage and then discover you actually have to aim. How much fun is that?

 

By the way, thanks for agreeing to take care of the Griffin folks. I always gave you credit for more smarts but I reckon everyone has a weak moment. The match director's job is one of the least appreciated. When all goes well that is to be expected and not applauded. When all does not go well, you have everyone on your case. Pretty much a no win situation. You ought to get a 5 second bonus on each stage for your efforts!

I'd support that....add 5 seconds to every stage he shoots...regardless of where it is. Maybe then I might have a chance to at least finish a bit closer to ole Capt. Bill :D

You probably gave me too much credit, I'm actually pretty slow, box of chocolates and all that.

 

I like the bonus idea, with all the misses I've had lately they might balance out!

 

Easy Rider built a great club (running for 18 straight years now) with the best team you could hope for. Almost all of them are staying, so I expect they'll make me look better than I am.
