This past weekend, I shot at the Georgia State Steel Match. I had fun and it was great to see everyone again!
On the Wednesday before the match, we left the house for Alabama. I tried to do a little bit of schoolwork, but the puppies were begging for attention! I started getting stressed, because I had a 3,000 word paper due by Sunday. On Thursday night, our parents went to see a concert with Cody Jinks and Jamey Johnson. I took this time to write and I finished about half of it. I started worrying that I wouldn’t be able to finish it, but then I remembered that I had all of Sunday to work on it!
Friday morning, we left the base and started heading for Georgia. We made it just after lunch. We drove to the range and visited with people. When I saw the range, I became excited. Schoolwork forgotten, I started thinking about the range and how fun this weekend was going to be.
On Saturday, I shot in the morning and afternoon. Both squads had great shooters and it was nice to meet new people. If y’all can’t tell, I love meeting people. No matter how shy or nervous I am, its always a pleasure.
Now the lunch was amazing. I’m sure a few people saw me dancing around and eating. FYI, that means it’s good food. Plus, sweet tea is always a bonus. Especially when it tastes like Chicken Express sweet tea!
Before the award ceremony, I’m going to be honest and say my first thought was, “Wow, it’s loud.” Everyone’s chatter reminded me of those cartoons when all you can here is, “blulbluhlbiblubl,” if you know what I mean. But hey, a few muffins can solve that problem. When your attention is on the beautiful muffins, all the noise drains out. I call this problemo solved!
Anyhow, the match was a blast! People were nice, food was great, and I was able to meet new people. This is the perfect combo! As far as my shooting, I did well with my rifles. I shot an 82.28 with my RFRO and 83.63 with my RFRI! Woohoo! I didn’t do too well with my RFPI, but I’ll work on it.
Great job to all the shooters!
