Shot this big “slot” match at the Renton Fish and Game club over the weekend. The Northwest Series is a "series" of matches run by the Northwest Section to determine who get’s a slot shoot at the Nationals. It’s a point system based on result and participation. There are 6 clubs in the Northwest Section that runs these series matches. You can find out more about the Northwest Section at http://northwestsection.org/
It was a looooooooong day. we started shooting around 10:45am and didn’t finish till 5pm. Round count was 228 over 8 stages. There were 87 shooters participating. I came in 2nd Overall, 1st A in Open. Here are the results :
I didn’t think I did very well. I was expecting to run each stage as perfectly as I can, and as you’ll hear/see from my “comments” on the video, I made some silly mistakes. I’m curious to see how well I perform if I didn’t have those mistakes. This is the case of shooters getting placed high in the rankings due to consistency. The saying goes where the 2nd place winner in all the stages typically is the overall match winner.
I had fun, knees hurt though from standing and running shooters as an R.O. for 7 hours.
