One of the workouts you don’t want to pass on this time of year is shooting just for accuracy. Good to start each workout with a 10+10 minimum. Yesterday we took the opportunity to do that, along with a range procedure drill on roller skis, some short TH combos, some long TH combos and some short RP combos. The wind is rarely bad at ER, but yesterday while not real high, was shifting from side to side.
We had a couple of folks on light duty at least by the end of the workout—so they did a 50 shot test on metal without skis on, both with PR’s in that test. Conner did the 10+10 without skis—but the rest shot standing off of roller skis—a definite handicap—so PR’s in that test were in short supply!!
Good workout day and I would like to thank Jeff Bosek and Landrums for all the help setting up, blowing the course, and closing things down at the end.
Enjoy the Journey!
