    Yeah, Tech0662, it's really a great group of folks, and the matches are great fun, as well as instructive. I look forward to every match. I call them shooting with a purpose; they'll definitely reveal areas of weakness that need to be worked on, which in my case are legion.

    How late do the matches typically run after cleanup?

    The main match is normally over by 1:00 and done with the side match by 2:30-3:00.

    Sometimes longer, sometimes shorter.

    Thanks Hoser. Is it still on for this Sunday? The FRIDPA website doesn't have the correct date but the countdown shows this Sunday.

    As of right now it is on. It is happens or not is up to mother nature.

    3rd Sundays regardless of the date.

    'Twas a pleasant day for a classifier yesterday: the weather was good up until the last couple of shooters, when it began to rain, but even during the warmest part of the day I never felt like someone had turned the temp. setting up to broil.

    Well, I managed to just barely make it to the Marksman level, which was my immediate goal. There were only two of us shooting revolvers and I think I learned something: to keep getting better I am going to have to concentrate on not only accuracy, but speed as well. I shot the cleanest match I ever have, beating the other revolver shooter on that point handily, but he shot faster than I did and, even with his less accurate shooting, beat my score severely. (BTW, this isn' t sour grapes, congrats to the other revolver shooter.) It looks like it might be okay to drop a few points in the interest of having a shorter overall time. Now, of course, it's a balancing act and it would be easy to swing too far in the other direction, so I'll have to be careful. Damn, this stuff is harder than it looks!
