This level two USPSA match is organized once a year as part of our series/slot matches and counts for two. You need a minimum of four to be entered in the challenge to determine your eligibility for National slots.
It’s a 181 round match with some really challenging stages which is good for my practice for the nationals. I’m not really happy with my performance, as there were some screw ups which I really need to not replicate again.
This match was organized by the Down Zero crew at the Renton Fish and Game Club.
Great match, fun stages and squad. I wish I did better… had a mike on so many stages and no-shoots too. Need to focus and concentrate on the dot a bit more. Trying a new format for the video, let me know if it’s distracting and prefer the PIP view.
Series / Slot matches are the slightly more important matches where shooters get to compete in a series of matches to determine overall placing over six different clubs. They stand to win cash prizes and an opportunity (slot) to go to the Nationals. Find out more at http://northwestsection.org
Great Match today. It drizzled a little but then quickly went away. The stages were well put together, super high hit factor all round. Lucky to come in 2nd place. Had a few minor screw-ups but no big stage bombs. Thanks to the Down Zero team for putting together another solid match!
Came in 2nd place at the Marysville Slot Match. Had some screw ups as usual that bumped me down the rankings.
First time using my GoPro Hero4 Session at a match. This camera is easy to use and the video quality is top notch. The only issue is the slightly anemic audio when the gun goes off. Otherwise, the mic picks up speech pretty well.
I’ve been wanting to get a new camera for my hatcam footage and have been trying out many different types of cameras. I started with a Contour, then Contour+, dabbled with the Mobius and settled with the Polaroid Cube which is a fantastic and convenient camera. It doesn’t have the best video/audio quality but it’s certainly easy to use.
Then recently GoPro announced a brand new camera called the GoPro Hero 4 Session. Same form factor as the cube BUT with much higher quality video and audio. That got me stoked and I quickly bought one when it was available.
In this video, I’ll give you my unfiltered first impressions of the Hero4 Session camera with a specific use case in mind, which is for shooting. I will be uploading more videos of me using it for a match and figuring out the best way to mount it.
Shot a fun match today at Paul Bunyan. They have one of the best bays that have lots of long courses which are my fav. Came in 2nd place behind TimR AS USUAL but it’s all my fault coz of mikes on 4 of the stages. Thanks to all the volunteers who help to set this match up till late last night. We shooters really appreciate it!
Ah, everything clicked for me today, all except for the classifier which is CRAP! 🙂 Walked away with a Match Win. I realized that I have to be in a stage of relaxation for me to shoot well. If I’m stressed, I’ll cave in to the pressure.
Nice stages with a rare Rhodesian wall. It was fun but I screwed up three stages so didn’t do that well score wise. Came in third behind the usual GMs.
Here it is. Just got back from this really fun match. Had a great time with good traveling buddies. The guys and gals in the squad were fun to shoot with too.
I shot so-so-ish as I did not actively push myself to go fast or do well. I mentally took this match as good alone/vacation time away from family and work. That sort of manifested in how I shot as well, like I was on vacation 🙂
A shooting buddy of mine told me a few times while video-ing me, he said “Loke, I’ve never seen you move and shoot this slowly before. what’s wrong?”. I was on vacation that’s why. Looks like I need to speed things up and actively compete.
So, next match, my hair will be on fire!
Not a bad match considering but still many stupid mistakes. Tagging no-shoots and not confident with my shots and that stupid Can You Count classifier! *bah*. It’s so hard to get 100% on it.
