    Very interesting. I see several places I recognize and a few I don't. Looks as if at one time there were several matches in Florida. Although I would like to see more in Florida or at least close to our area there are a few on that list I don't think I would really want to go to if they still exist.

    Thanks for sharing the info with us.

    Remeber the old scoring method used to give percentages instead of actual time plus penalities? I was just looking through some of the old score sheets. Trying to see if I'm getting better or worse!

    Glockrunner,

    You can't compare your old scores and your present scores. It's like comparing apples and oranges.
    Under the old system if you could shoot fast enough and semi accurately, the speed would make up for the bad shots. The new system is no where near as forgiving. Now, you really can't shoot fast enough to make up a miss let alone a bunch of lesser hits.

    Compare your matches you are shooting now against each other.;)

    Yea, I knew that already. Similair to the ISPC scores, too, can't compare a thing.
