    For the first day of the "new" match at Boulder, Brenda and I had all A's:

    An excellent flight, arriving around noon.
    An enjoyable afternoon visiting with friends like Alice Rhea, Dale Rhea, Clif King, Scott Gilbertson, Matt Burkett, Matt Kartozian.
    A regret that we couldn't dine with Donna and Tony Clemens.
    A great dinner with Don Dyer, Dan Johnson and Alice and Dale Rhea.
    A great day before shooting tomorrow!.

    WOW; What a trip. It was definately worth the effort. Many thanks to the folks at the Boulder Pistol Club for hosting a great match. It may have been your first but you all did a superb job. Looking forward to the trip again next year.

    Scott and Julie did a wonderful job getting everyone checked in and Scott was right on top of things seeing to it that any potential problems that may pop up were cleared up immediately. Great job folks, I appreciate your hard work.

    As to my shooting; I am pleased. I did mess up my AmCiv but the other 2 categories were good for me. In AmCiv I had 152.xx, Stock Meister I had a 114.xx and U/L I had a 73.xx. I know that these are not Master Class Scores and I am not inferring this but for an old guy still learning I feel pretty good with them although I plan on correcting that AmCiv score at Orlando. By the way I shot my new G37 in both AmCiv and Stockmeister for the very first time. Still shot my old "Tweedy Bird" G17L in U/L.

    Sorry we couldn't getup with Tony and Donna for Dinner but did get to visit over phone. Dan and I had a great dinner with our good friends Bobby and Brenda Carver and Dale and Alice Rhea. It was a very enjoyable evening to top off a long trip and tight schedule.

    Looking forward to seeing many of you at Orlando in less than 2 weeks.

    don,

    just curious, why do shoot stockmeister instead of competition? the sm winning score is almost always lower than the comp winning score, so you would usually have a better shot at winning comp.

    I always shoot S/M with the AmCiv to be sure we have enough scores for the team. In the Vegas match we had only 2 Master shooters and 2 Amateur shooters to complete a S/M Team. I understand your point though but I enjoy the challenge. Same with U/L, I know I have very little chance of winning but I do enjoy the challenge and love shooting the Red Dot, my 73.44 at Vegas with it wasn't bad and if I had not rushed a couple shots it would have been a 63.xx

    Alice and I just returned home from our road trip to the Boulder City match. It is always good to go visit the Sun. We both shot well and we had a great time visiting with out friends, old and new.
    The match was very well run, amazing for a first effort. Thanks Scott and the Boulder City club. The new shooting bays were ideal for this match. This match is a must for next year.

    Congratulations Tony C on your double win and a clean run with the stock gun. A clean run with a stock gun is very rare and has been one of my goals for a long time. We had a great time shooting and visiting with you and Donna and look forward to next time.

    those 11 second plate runs certainly werent terrible...

    i see matt b shot the UL 5TG in 8 seconds...less than 3 seconds per string. thats some fast shooting.

    Yep, that was fast but look at the 86 penality points he got for being so fast. Fast is good but only if accuracy is with it so you don't get penality points. That blazing speed got him in next to last place.

    This is in no way intended as a flame to anyone but just stating some facts. GSSF matches are not very good places for "spray and pray" type shooting.

    thats true...i routinely shoot some of the slower times in each category. still, 8 seconds for 30 shots? i doubt i could shoot that fast if all 30 shots were on the 5 yard target! i dont think i've ever seen a faster time (just the time, not a total stage score).

    i'm curious to see the score sheet for that stage. would you mind posting it matt b?

    thanks

    No disrespect to Mr Burkett, but Tony Clemens clean run and 1st place in Stockmiester is much more impessive than an 8 sec stage and 86 add secs. A 5 sec stage would be no more impressive with all the added time for loss of accuracy!Just my opinion though!

    Didn't get back until Tuesday afternoon, & GSSF already had preliminary results up! WOW! Thanks for a great job, as always. Thanks to Scott & Julie for doing an outstanding job in Boulder City. Sure didn't seem like this was Boulder City's first match! Great job by all of the ROs - thank you! Normally, the match is the highlight of our trips, but even though we had a great time shooting, the visits with friends, new & old, are what Donna & I have talked about since getting home. Finally got to meet Dale & Alice Rhea. They ARE as nice as everyone says! Had dinner w/Dale & Alice as well as old friends Bobby & Brenda Carver after shooting on Sunday. Had a GREAT time with everyone - just wish we had more time to visit! Dale, Alice, Bobby, Brenda - can't wait til the next time we're able to visit again! Weren't able to visit w/Don & Dan this trip, but we certainly will in Orlando next weekend! It was Donna & my first visit to Vegas, so Brenda & Bobby graciously showed us the sights on Monday. We'll never forget the memories made - thank you both SO MUCH!! Great friends, great ROs, great range, great attractions, great match - we'll definitely plan to be back next year! WE HAD A BLAST!! Thanks to all involved! Tony & Donna.

    I was dissapointed with my Unlim plates as I had at least one make up per string but IT could have been worse. I did somehow shoot a 1.85 for a string with my stock gun which really surprised me though.

    By the time we got to the standards Matt B had already dropped too many points to have a chance at winning Ulim so he had fun and went for an all out speed run. I was standing behind him dareing him to shoot a sub 3 string.

    i figured it was something like that. did he get the sub 3 string? never mind...my math skills left me for a minute there...

    1.85 stock plate run? thats impressive. heck, i cant even do that dry firing!

    Spray and pray is good for IPSC/IDPA but not GSSF. IDPA if you miss the target you + 5 points = 2 1/2 seconds added on where GSSF you miss and 10 seconds is added. IE:When I shot my first GSSF match I shot it like a IPSC match and had fast strings. Glock to 5 total time before penalties was under 12 seconds but when you added C, D and mikes it was over 100 seconds for that stage. You can not shoot a GSSF match fast enough to win like IDPA/USPSA.
