SCTP Nationals Days 2 & 3

The 2nd round of Sporting Clays was Thursday.  It was hot & humid which I think affected everyone's scores.  There is little or no shade out on the course.  Also starting on stage 12 meant walking an extra 90 degrees of the circle before starting and an extra 90 after finishing.  Did I mention it was hot?

BTW, here is my Favorite shot of the day:

This is the team headed out to start the 2nd round.  Walking as a team joking about what ever early teens joke about,..  as a team.

While we all saw them as a team, in reality they the three with blue pants above were a squad and the SCSon competed individually.   We learned late in the afternoon the squad scored 4th in class.  Wahoo!  Great job guys.

The Trap even started today.
They started off rough but had a strong finish.  The winds were gusting and the clays were flying differently than they are used to.  But the SCSon scored a 24 on the last of today's rounds. 

Four more rounds tomorrow then home to sleep in our own beds tomorrow night!

Stay Tuned!

The cold front is probably going to arrive after you are finished shooting, but you may have some gusting to play havoc with the clay pigeons. It was a thrill to meet you, the SCSon, and the team. I hope you have a safe and uneventful return to home.

That's great that he is shooting well, and he's found a good team!
