Update Dec 13, 2014: I am a little behind on posts from the season. This is one of those summaries. Here is the match summary from October 3. I needed to finish the video first before I posted this one and finally got the video posted.
Match Date: October 3, 2014
It’s been a while since we last had an update from Friday Night Steel. The month of September was so crazy, so I decided to take the month off and not worry about shooting. Sometimes, you just need to say eh and take some time for yourself. Between traveling for our anniversary and other things we had to do around the house and things we wanted to do, it just didn’t make sense to shoot this month. However, since October is the last month of Friday Night Steel for the season, we decided I should make all of them in October. So we are back for the first match of October.
This was the 3rd to last regular season match and then the forth match for the month will be the Annual 777 Match for the ending of the season.
This match I did surprisingly well. I was in the zone and hit everything I was aiming at. I was very surprised after taking a month off how good I felt shooting in this match. I thought for sure I would be fairly rusty and not get into the groove well enough. I was able to focus, calm down and place my shots. At least till I got to Stage 3. I always have problems on that stage and this week was no exception. I threw my score out the window as soon as I walked up to the stage. I just could not hit the round plate targets tonight to save my life. I need to work on farther distance shots again it looks like.
Overall though, I was very pleased with my performance. I was quick on Stages 1 and 2 and that helped to keep my score down. Hopefully this good momentum will carry through to next week.
What I did wrong: I shot stage 3. No kidding. For the most part, I don’t know much of what I did wrong. I may needed to have slowed down a little on Stage 3 but otherwise, not a whole lot.
What I did Right: I was in the zone, had great sight pictures and hit my targets well. I was fast and able to concentrate well.
