This year’s Area 1 Championships was held in Idaho Falls and it featured 13 fun and varying stages. It wasn’t super technical but it was a blast to shoot. Everyone had a chance to do well.
One of the stages (#10) got thrown out because of a rule misprint so we got to shoot it for fun. It featured a unique swinger mechanism that has two plates on either side to destabilize it. I believe it’s called a Leo’s Leaner. It’s was fun to decipher and shoot.
I’m pretty happy that I had only three “Mikes” the entire match, I did however shoot somewhat slower than normal because of match pressure. I came in 10th Open, 4th Master behind an amazing array of fast and young shooters.
