In the last two years I have shot at Baga, GOB, Atlanta, Minor Hill, SMGC, Baton Rouge, Arlington Sportsman Club, Dallas, Desoto and Heflin. In 2014 at Heflin I started on about lane 8 on Day 1 and lane 13 on Day 2. Baton Rouge this year I started on lane 5 day 1 and 13 on day 2. 2016 Nationals in MI I started on lane 6, day 1 and lane 14 on day 2. At GOB match , day one lane 14 and day 2 lane 6. I could go on but the point I am making is that to my knowledge, I have NEVER started on lanes 1-5 at a real match. At most matches, if you start on a high numbered lane, you wind up walking a lot more than those who start on lane 1. Lane 1 people walk out from lane 1 to 15 and then walk back, one lap. If you start on lane 13, you walk out to 13 then to 15, walk back to 1 then to 12 and then back to the start. That is about 1.75 laps.
The point is: Why statistically do the nobodies, old guys and Chunkies(euphemism for fat guys, yes I match all those) get the pleasure of walking their butts off and the rest get the "best" lanes. Plus I shot with Garvey 3 times last year and Cliff S. owes me big time.
And no I don't want any cheese with my Whine.........Just something for the MD's to consider.
