Not a story, exactly, but my wife and I just got back from ROing the morning shift. The weather is beautiful, the stages are going so smooth that the ROs are waiting for shooters more than the shooters are waiting to shoot. So far the turnout has been a little lighter than Saturday morning last year, but with this weather I can't imagine the overall turnout will be much less than the 400+ from last year.
The practice plate rack is very popular - collecting over $200 before lunch. All the proceeds go toward building a new pistol division range house.
Had lunch at the clubhouse - hotdogs and very good chili. I believe they also had pork tenderloin, hamburgers and various other things.
We will be back tomorrow to shoot in the morning and RO again on the afternoon shift - I will be RO at Glock M, #1.
The weather was PERFECT! The RO's did an OUTSTANDING job, very little waiting on our part. The GSSF crew of Scott and Cindy did there normally outstanding job of getting folks regestered and keeping the match running smoothly! As for my shooting, not as good as Lubbock match last week, but I can live with it! I did have a good day with Major Sub;f 42.40!
I can't say enought good things about the staff and Ro's, they were GREAT! We got to the range a little after 9:00 and where finished by 1:30! That's 4 of us shooting together!!!!!!!!
Another GREAT match for the BGSL! Well Done folks!
had a great time. finially met festus after shooting on the same team for several matches. i sucked in the sub classes, didn't shot as well as usuall, but not really bad either in the others. the ROs were great and there was no waiting or next to no waiting.
Absolutely no complaints. I should have and probably could have shot better, but I am happy for now. I have just changed to a G17 in stock and now have finally seen my scores become consistant. I shot 2 Stock Classes with it and they were only 3 seconds apart score wise. For me that is an accomplishment. Made a couple mistakes and made some adjustments and learned a lot. San Antonio is my next outing and I am expecting vast improvements now that I am on the right track.
The RO's and BGSL did a great job and the GSSF folks (Scott and Cindy) had things well oiled and running smooth.
Met "OLD WIG19" in person for the first time and he is everybit the gentleman I had expected to meet. I will however have to go a little easy on him about his forcasted "RETIREMENT DATE" . I have been there, done that, and it's a great feeling. Now to stay active enough to enjoy several years of it. ;c ;c ;c
i forgot i met WIG19 too, it's always good to say hello and put a name and face together
What a great day.
The ROs were great and everone was nice.
The weather was perfect.
I started out on the pratice plate rack,(said hi to bren )
My shooting was normal but i was using the Lancer Custom ammo.
The ammo was fine but my stock G17 had a hard time cycling the low recoil ammo, which lead to a lot trouble for me
I should have stayed with the S/B and WWB ;Q
Even with all the probs i still shot better than i did at the pratice match last summer
I may go back tommorow and shoot in unlimited (thats the only class left i can shoot in, lol.
But what the heck, i will have fun eather way ;Q ;f ;f
I had a great time as well. Despite a total meltdown on the plates ,I still managed to better my time from last year in one category, and blow away last years time in another~woohoo~ . Even though I improved, I am in no danger of being invited to shoot on a team`l `l . Got my brother out to shoot (new GSSF member--another chance for me to win a Glock;f ) and he had a ball, and out shot me handily;g Overall, a great day. R/O's were great, facilities were great, friendly shooters, what more could we ask for?
I forgot to add, my son refinised the G17 again;f
I just got back home about an hour ago. Hate we couldn't make the Saturday night dinner, we sure enjoyed dinner with everyone on Friday night. I meet several folks I had never had the opportunity to meet before. Dwight, it was a pleasure meeting you. I heard some of the RO's talking about the scores you were shooting today, but I never ran across you during the match. Sounds like you did pretty well.
The weather was great, a little chilly to start the morning, but by 11:00 it was perfect. As always, the match ran very smoothly, I really enjoy coming to Blue Grass Sportsman League. If it was a little closer I think I'd check into a membership. You folks (Ladies & Gent's) are GREAT. Thanks for having us. Also, the GSSF staff did a super job. Looking forward to next year already...
Tremendous....I arrived around 2:00 pm and shot 4 categories in less than two hours there was no waiting. The Ro's and GSSF again outdid themselves and I must admit that Lexington has and still is the most scenic, pleasant, and well run match that I attend ....I will return again next year.
Where does one begin....people new, my Teammate Ed Ellison, super guy and an understanding wife in Pam that allows him to follow his passion. Terminator,GlockenStein,Brian (says he doesn't post on GlockTalk just reads)....great guys and all experienced shooters .Old friends...saw Teammate.. Old Man(Jim Harlan and his wife Carol)as soon as I improve Jim steps it up a notch and well I still am the worst shot on the Team. Mr.and Mrs. Lethal were there, with Sniper and GlockMom and the kids....the family that does everything together. Then theres those guys from Carver Mounts, Steve from Iowa, Butch from Minnesota...missed Dwight, those fella's from Florida, Don and Dan.....and ohhhh yeah my TWIN BROTHER Jerry Worsham aka Fireglock....it was a treat to break bread and spend some time together. This was my first dinner and I can only say if you can attend in the future do so, you will not regret it.
I shot Amateur Civilian last and it was my worst score with (3) Mikes...yupper a 115.xx and some change, I had a 110.xx and (2) 102.xx....I usually do not get into the scoring issues but wanted to bring up the fact that my best output last year was a 117.xx and with Fireglocks mentoring all scores were under 117.xx so for those that have questions ...I am sure that Jerry my Twin, would be happy to share positive facts with you regarding this sport. ;f
We got there early and at first I was concerned as to being able to even see the targets as the fog was thick starting down Handyman Drive(?). It was cold at 9AM, but did warm up some when in the sun. I made a mistake of trying to get on the first plate to fast and missed the first plate on three of the four runs, but overall did OK for me. If most of my family had not left KY, I would think about retirement around Richmond and joining the BGSL. I would of liked to spend the weekend, but I have other things to do. See you next year.
This was my first outdoor GSSF shoot and I had a great time! Notice I didn't say I shot great.;Q The facility was magnificent. I saw a posted schedule that listed monthly IDPA, USPSA, and Cowboy Action shoots. I'm so incredibly jealous. I might have to move there.
Thanks to all the ROs. The match was run smoothly, professionally and nobody laughed (at least not to my face.)
I'll definatly be back next year.
Gee where do i start
Had a great time friday night at dinner getting to meet and talk to steve and Teri from Iowa, Butch, good to see you again . Transportguy it was great to meet and have the opportunity to talk to you. Im sorry Sniper was late and forgot the rope, Maybe next time . As usual it was great to see the Florida Gang!!!!!! You guys Rock!!!!!!. Mr Whitelaw i think the handshake rubbed off! I shot my best score ever. Thanks bro
My bro Brian from NJ (always great to see ya ) shot through with me on staurday and hung out. I think he also helped the girls out at Hustler Hollywood with their retirement plans ;e j/k bro. Lethal and Mrs Lethal. WOW im still spinning form the great time.
Domzilla, Festus, Wig19, EDE and Pam, Sniper, and Glockmom, and the Kids. The best RO's in the world (ok im biased but im allowed) If i left anyone out please forgive me.
The weather was simply beautiful, and the range gorgeous. The match was run as smooth as glass. No complaints whatsoever.
Personally i shot my best score ever with a gun i rarely ever use, in a category ive never shot before. ;g Im still trying to figure this one out.
This was a special match for me, being that it was my 1 year GSSF anniversary at my home range, and having shot my best score. Its always great to see old friends and making new ones.
I hope to see you all again very soon.
BGSL has been my home club since 1983 (eat your hearts out) and GSSF continues to be our best event.
Thanks for coming,
We also have monthly Bullseye Pistol, monthly High Power Rifle, monthly black powder, 3-4 practice Glock matches each year before the real one, shotgun matches seem to be going on every week or something, and all monthly USPSA matches are three gun. Of course membership does cost...$100 a year.
Thank's for having all of us,.... What a smooth match and as allways & looking forward to next year.
What can I say but time goes fast just like some of us shooting but hitting is a nother story Good to see old friends as well as making new.
I have a BIG THANK YOU to all the RO's that RO my son at his first match(10 years old ) Thanks for giving him pointers cause you know kids don't listen to there Dad & mom all that well ^c but he did say eveyone was nice and he can't wait for Richmond in 06 ( he shot an 889.XX), once again thank you.
Have a safe 05 and we will and can't wait for 06
I hear you on that one! I couldn't seem to find the first plate on most of my plate runs either! ;g
Other than that, like others said, the match was simply great, a great range, great RO's, great friends (both old and new), and simply beautiful weather!
I'm currently still in Indianapolis, heading home tomorrow, and hope to post some pics tomorrow night!
Well I made it home. I totally enjoyed the Lexington match and I think it's becoming one of my favorites. I arrived from Ohio today at about1 11:00. I checked in and bought some raffle tickets and went and shot my three events, CD, AC and AS. If I added right, I did well for me. I want to thank the Blue Grass Sportsman's Club for their hospitality, the RO's for a wonderful job. The RO's are so friendly and add a lot to the match. I all three division in an hour! I probably would have been done sooner but I was yacking! I had to talk to Frank. He had to drive nine hours to go home. He's a neat person. I guess Ed and Festus shot on Saturday and I'm sorry I missed you guys. Thank you KY for a wonderful match on a beautiful day!;a ;a ;a
Got to the range Saturday and had the gun repaired by the armorer and fired a few practice rounds. Went back to shoot the match on Sunday. All the RO's were great; and I like the idea that they all wore nametags. The setup for the Glock M was one of the best I've seen. I liked the idea of 3 individual bays with one sign-up table. Sorry I didn't get to see my team mates at the match. It was great to see the Florida bunch again. Thanks to the BGSL for a first class match. jim
