I know that Eric has already taken steps to correct any problems related to scoring and to the other rules. I will be creating a web site for LASSO that will be updated regularly. It will have a copy of the rules and regulations for all to see. This is not the first time that someone has graciously given up their position so that a younger competitor could be moved up. It has always been done as an encouragement for them to continue in our sport. It is my understanding that someone has already volunteered to be the judge for any rules questions.
As with any new thing like LASSO there will be growing pains. Eric's reasons for starting LASSO are to promote our sport and give everyone the opportunity to compete or to watch big bores in action. He doesn't make any money, and actually has had to subsidize the costs. Others have made major contributions as well so that LASSO could take place. As big an undertaking as it has been, LASSO has become an event that is not to be missed by any airgunner who might be interested in the big bore airgun phenomenon.I would encourage everyone to thank Eric for his hard work and his brilliant idea for this activity.
Congratulations again to John Bowman. I will never forget the amazement of seeing him blasting that 300 yard target with the Jack Haley .257. Although I didn't compete I enjoyed every minute of LASSO 2012 and the great friends who were there.
