a debrief woud be great
After I get a few pictures up, I'll write a debrief covering a few things I saw that might have made a very big difference in the outcome for some teams. I am sure every team wished they could do at least a stage or two over.
If a stage was particularly frustrating for anyone, I'd love to hear about it. I did walk around and try to give a few generic tips to every team. I think one team even modified Mike Tyson's quote - They said, "Ya, we read the tips and had a plan, but It's like a punch in the face; We had a great plan until we started"
in hind sight i wish, -snip -that we stopped searching for tgts at maybe 4 mins and just shot what we found
In a really weird way, what makes our targets hard to find is that it appears the should all be so very easy to find. That's also why 1/2 of the targets are identified by number markers.
You hit the nail on the head, tracking time, and knowing when to skip targets is key. The other is to both be looking at least at standing shooting height before setting the gear. As you do, you look for obstructions that might keep the shooter from seeing the targets if set too low.
I would love to see you guys come back for Scott's monthly matches. They are super collaborative, targets are easy to find, time is generous, and will even be pointed out if someone is having a hard time; people will help coach if you ask or loan a bag. There is an all prone (Hunter division). In that division you can try an obstacle if you wish, shoot off a pack, sticks, or tripod, it is up to the shooter and they can mix and match. If you contact Scott you can almost always camp the night before.
