score summary picture

I caught a ride with Diggler and shot the ENPS June match.
We left at 4:15 a.m.and got there early enough to spend time pounding stakes.
I also found out why they have that RO checkbox on the registration form.
Although I tried the ol "I'm a horrible RO trick" it didn't work this time ;)
I ran the timer and the nook quite a bit and thankfully didn't have to DQ anyone.

I wanted to mostly concentrate on stage programming and let the shooting take care of itself.
Overall I placed 17 of 82 and 4th of 29 LTD
I got off to a rough start with a couple mikes on the first stage (5)
I missed a popper and tagged a no shoot.
Oh great. First stage jinx returneth. So much for stage prep and execution.
Oh well on to the next stage

June 11 SFPS match

Ugh. Tired and sluggish. Finding it takes a lot more effort to dryfire in the summer.
In the winter it just becomes part of a daily routine. In the summer, not so much.
I have to regain the discipline for at least 15 minutes a day until area 3.

Last match 15th of 32 overall and 2 of 9 in LTD. Wally is catching me.

Match results

Nothing takes 15 minutes

yeah I guess I better adjust that 15 minutes a day goal to a half an hour.
It took an hour to do 15 minutes today. I also need to write an on season training plan.
Tonight I felt kinda lost until I grabbed the SA book I worked with all winter.
My times are still there and I didn't feel as clumsy as I thought I might.
It was all static stuff to get out of C class so I need make a list of weaknesses and drills to improve them.

Steel at Sioux River Sportsman

I drove down to Canton to shoot plates Wednesday evening.
It's a very laid back and a fun group of guys.
Some of them shoot at Corson too but I never get to talk to them at those matches.
Fun change of pace and I needed it.
I lost to Dustin because my transitions suck.
I did watch one guy really struggle and I thought "I sure am glad that's not me anymore."
