I tried to remind myself to take more photos this year, but I only managed to collect a few moments...

Don Carkhuff in the Sunday Kneeling lane...

Glenn Thomas on lane 3 in the Friday Pistol Match. Notice the even lighting because Friday was generally overcast (and windy)...

Will Piatt scoring for Vipha Miller...

Alex Modic's non-conventional (Open) offhand style...

Vlad Berchanskiy shooting Open. Notice how totally relaxed that left forearm appears...

Charles Garvey in Hunter. This picture shows the patchiness of light and dark (light/dark, light/dark, etc), typical
in the Red Course Lanes on Saturday when the Sun shined. For some reason, most (if not all) of the targets came to rest in the shady bits.
Go figure?

I seriously considered skipping Paw Paw due to all the weather variables in a northern venue in October.
But the weather was great for a fall weekend in Michigan. I'm so happy I went.

Thanks to Chris Martin and all his fine staff for the hospitality (including the ice cream bars) and for successfully
hearding 100+ cats for the weekend. I know it was stressful (always is). But two weeks from now, you will all have
some beer and a good laugh.

Sure enjoyed shooting with you Bob.
We were a curious threesome, Bob is a really fast shooter. He figures if the crosshairs are on,why wait. I guess I am a medium fast shooter. I usually have 1:30 left on the timer. Fellow BAGA clubmate Vlad sometimes will end with 25seconds on the clock. Different strokes for different folks, I guess.
When Bob got to the kneeling lane he said something I never thought I would never hear from a competitor. He said,"I just LOVE kneeling shots,". I then watched him clean the kneeling lane in record time.
Bob,s kneeling roll is very clever. It is actually a section of schedule 40 PVC pipe. He glued on a section of computer mouse pad to cushion his ankle. It ends up lighter and smaller than a kneeling roll. Purity clever Bob.
By the way, the previous day I was freezing. I forgot to bring warm stuff. But my club mate Vlad came over and asked me if I would like to put on one of his shirts. Isn,t that something? I declined but In true sportsmanship behavior, Vlad , as the saying goes, "would give ya the shirt of his back."
Thanks again Chris and team for all your efforts on our behalf.

shooting with you and Don, as well. You two are club mates who know each other well. But you immediately welcomed me in... I never felt like an outsider. I learned a lot in watching your different techniques, and especially enjoyed reminiscing about 10 meter shooting... current for you, Vlad, but 25 years in the mirror for me, LOL.
