Day 1 of the Siege/Colorado State Championships kicked off this morning with the pledge, prayer and the firing of a bowling ball out of a canon. You can’t even see the ball when its in the air if you don’t pay close attention to the trajectory of it!
The skies are blue, the wind is light and we are ready for 6 stages. You need to aim! These targets are smaller and a little further out there.
Suffice to say it wasn’t exactly the greatest of days but I had some really awesome rifle runs! (Always take away the positive!)
We have a great posse with Babe Ruthless and Union Jack (our gracious hosts for the weekend), Burgundy Ballou and Ric-A-D-Split, Bijou Blade and Tolinka, Sixgun Louie, Sam Balin, Section Hand, Rufus Thornton, Lucy Trigger, Gateway Kid and of course Jackaroo and myself rounding out Posse 7.
There is lots of movement on these stages and a few you really need to think about but all in all they are good. Everyone is in the same boat!
Sixth stage done and its time to pack up, have lunch and socialize with others hearing their triumphs and woes of the day.
Bring it on tomorrow for the final 6 stages!!
