Nothing like a Valentine themed match
Yeah I dropped the ball on a Christmas themed one. But you had the match on Christmas Eve anyway.

Trying to stick with the even distribution of easy/hard stages too. It worked out well last weekend. Sure is a lot better than all stages being difficult...

On stage 2, what are those red squares? Are they shoot boxes so we can engage the targets outside the walls?
Yeah they are the best representation that Sketchup has to offer on a smaller, raised shooting box.

Last time we did something similar to this, a shooting box was entirely too big, and when a more experienced shooter was moving quickly, it was hard to assess foot faults because you really couldn't discern the half a second their foot was in the box.

This match will use a little raised block, maybe a 2x12 or two 2x8s or 2x10s, with some sort of traction-giving substance on them.

This way, it will be small to make the shooter get into the position I want y'all to get in, but also should be able to let the RO if the shooter is in (on top of) the shooting area or not.

Has everybody invited their Valentine to come shoot the match with them?

Don't forget that we will be having the drawing for the receiver set and the lower too!

Y'all need to come so you can rack up points for the Shooter of the Year program. You're gonna want those prizes!

Sure is - but special what we haven't figured out. Sounds like you guys have a bromance blooming. Hope Brooke doesn't mind
