Nick was one of our dearest friends, USPSA Grandmaster, Area Champion and all round great guy. Both Deri and Nick were instrumental in my development in USPSA and gave me a ton of tips on how to be better. This memorial outlaw match was put together by a team led by Deri and Tim Ramberg.
I teamed up with Jason Hall to form “Team Hall & Lokes”. There were four stages of crazy and difficult shooting which was super fun. You can see how much we struggled especially with the gear and stage execution but managed to squeak in at 11th place overall. Hopefully we get to see this match again next year.
We miss you Nick! You would have loved this match.
Finally got out of the house after the Snowmageddon hit the Seattle area the past two weeks. Lots of slush left which made things dicey but it was really good to get to shoot. We had the Northwest Section 2018 awards ceremony right after this match and I came home with 3rd place overall Open division and $50 🙂

After a tough few weeks of testing, we finally got to a place where the build is stable enough to be released on Steam Early Access. We’re looking forward to hearing from everyone what you think about the game. Please mind the bugs as there are bound to be many.
We’ll be posting regular updates for the game and hope to bring new content every week or two.
