Lel 2000 miles, fuck that. Unless there's free hookers and blow no match is worth driving that far.


I agree, the trip was more about visiting family. But a level 3 match is definitely the most exciting aspect of this trip.

Does your internet charge by the letter?

 

Please explain the internet.

Day one in the books! I wasn't able to shift into high gear, but kept my shit together. I'm very glad we are shooting all three days, lots more opportunity to pick up the speed.

Absolutely a top notch run match!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You really are 400 pounds aren't you? To be complaining about a half day format steel match where you can sit in the shade 90% of the time is lol

Zero humidity to eighty percent is some what of a shocker, fat or not.

Pfft 80% ? That's a dry heat. If it isn't mid 90's with 90% it might as well be Canada.

Ok I'll put it another way. I've spent the last three months in near zero humidity (dry heat). PA and NY have been in the high eighties to low nineties for temperature and sixty to eighty % humidity. For me it's a big adjustment.

Awesome match! Can't thank the staff and sponsors enough! Ended up with two 8th place and one 12th place division finishes. My brother crushed my hopes and dreams with two 9th and one 2nd place division finishes. If I had stayed a little more focused on day two I very easily could have stayed in the top ten. This match definitely has me pondering my opportunitys to travel to major events. Such a different level of competition and pressure which I'll never get at small level one matches.

Anything above ~88 isn't worth going outside for.

You’d only get to shoot 4 matches a year down here, then.

Our winter here blows ass, but most years we also aren't on the surface of the sun in summer so it balances out.
