Looks like Faulds set the bar in FITASC.  Also by looking at his All Around scores doesn’t really seem like he has any holes in his game. Anyone there this week?

I also was looking for his name especially FITASC . .  92 looks like a great score.  Now there’s a tie for first.

If you're asking me -- no time to compete.  I have a business meeting in Tucson but family obligations mean I'll only be there overnight.

Kerry,

 

Yes I was asking you.

 

I would make a dumb comment about how you should Make the time, but I realize my friends are there with a camper, cart and I had an invite to go.

Yet I am at work trying to close out a job and bid some more.

 

Long winter and too much work can get a guy feeling sorry for himself!:D

 

Got to remember to be thankful for the job and happy for the spring moisture. South Dakota has had two very hard drought years especially in the center of the state.

With a good hatch and moisture it is amazing how fast pheasants can bounce back.

 

10-14" of wet snow and a slow melt will be a good thing as long as it does not get too cold.

 

Safe travels !

Family overrules all. There’s always another tournament, but there’s not always another chance to make a memory with your children. Therefore, I will only spend a few hours at coyote springs.

Anybody who shot yesterday has my respect. It was hot, and the wind was howling. Lots of dust and haze and from what I saw the scores were low. Lots of vendors had packed up because stuff was blowing off the tables

A 5 way tie going into the last day with a few others 1 target behind.  Mein and Faulds were the top 2 in the All Around.

Kruse wins by 1 target also shot great in the All-around final. It was pretty good shoot off footage, Spire also shot well in the final.

I think this tournament points up just how good the best shooters are.  Kruse and Matarese were tied going into the last round; Anthony dropped one target out of 66 but Kruse straighted the course.  That's unbelievable shooting.

 

FITASC was won with a 99, and there were two of them -- also incredible.  And I'm sure some scores were knocked down by the high winds on Thursday.

 

If you're going to win a big blast nowdays, it's going to take something in the range of 95 percent and up. When I started, most people couldn't believe it when a shooter broke 90, and the courses were a lot softer then.

Yep, now even in the lower classes it takes usually an 80 or more to win in most tournaments.
