It was a dark and stormy
night errrr, morning. We cannot give enough thanks to Amp (Match Director), Kevin, Craig and Chase, Brian, Duane, Ash, and the others for setting up this match “in between the raindrops.” Or, while getting rained on – a lot. Then we have to thank them again for waiting it out, the late start, and working in the steamy-heat to make this match a great success. Thank you – of course – to 47 of you for shooting the match with us.
A few more thankful notes this time:
– Jack and Eddie (Andy & Shari): for ‘handling’ the scores
– Mike Jones for being back to 80% which was the “100%” for the match*** (we’ve certainly missed you and that Shield and are glad your recovery is going so well)
– all of the ‘youth’ shooters we had this time, it’s good to see
– Jack: amazing photos (pressure on you-know-who to get caught up with the photo uploads!)
*** IDPA says “there’s no overall winner(s), etc., it’s by division/classification” and we normally do not make any notes or comments about “leaders” or “winners.” But, here we go, this time is special: Mike Jones (69.11), Brian Edwards (70.32) and (WOW 0.01) Craig Grivois (70.33) ran way, way, way out ahead of the rest of the pack (@19 to the next one) with only 1.22 between them – and did you hear: WOW 0.01 “photo finish” Brian and Craig. That! is setting the standard, leading by example, raising the bar, and so on…
