........ on the road again........

Here it is Friday already, and KeeWee and I are getting everything packed, cleaned, oiled, and ready to go. Once a year they hold a big Steel Challenge like match just South of Portland, Oregon, called the Man of Steel. This year, I decided to go give it a try. This match is aptly named, as it consists of ten stages of steel. Even the World Steel Challenge Championship was only eight stages, and by the time I got near the final stages at that match I was running out of gas!

Some of the stages are the same as the Steel Challenge stages, and some of them are completely different. Some are "big targets - in close", my favorites! One stage has not only movement from one shooting box to another, it also has a mandatory reload. No big deal for you IPSC shooters, but but for old clumsy folks with fumble-finger-itis this stage could be ugly.....

We plan to drive to the match on Saturday, and hopefully get there before the SASS Cowboy Shoot is over, so we can watch the cowboy shooters. Saturday night we plan to stay in our sumptuous and extravagant land yacht. At 8am Sunday morning the match starts, and it should take most of the day to complete. After the match we plan to drive back home, so we'll be ready to go back to work on Monday (BAH!)

Look for reports and pictures "Monday-ish"
