That was an awesome way to spend Sunday morning! Great course guys!

Thank you for setting it up.

I got caught between friend and competitor and gave myself the short end of the stick this time.

Chris was about to pull the trigger on his AA with the bolt not seated, and have a miss on lane 8.

I saw the whole thing from off to the side and my mind told me to just let the mistake happen, but he is my friend and we all fall victim to small mental errors during matches.

Forgetting to come back up to 12X zoom after a close shot, or he engaging at a target out of sequence, etc..

If things were reversed and he noticed I was about to make a mistake, I would want the warning.

I spoke up in time for him to close the bolt and save the shot.


We both shot a 52 total, but he had the tie breaker lane, so I officially lost.

(Let's see if I get any coffee out of the prize money he won.......)


Thanks for setting up a challenging and fun course.

I could not think of a more pleasant way to spend a beautiful Sunday morning!
