The Michigan State IDPA match was this weekend. In addition to completing my first "major" match, I was prepared to make huge technological advances this weekend. I was going to blog from the Blackberry (er, crackberry) and do play-by-play via Twitter. Blackberry blogging and Twitter have been on my aspirational to-do list for weeks!
Unfortunately, I had to cancel my trip at the last minute. My dad's health has taken a turn for the worse, so I needed to be with Mom. Even though I would've loved John to be with me this weekend, there was nothing he could do for Dad, Mom, or me. I was super-wife and insisted he go to Michigan with Mike, Thad, Jeff, and Aaron. One catch... I asked for pictures and a full recap.
The guys are on their way home from Michigan now. This is what I know so far:
- John is ecstatic with his performance... 1st place SSP Sharpshooter. He was bumped to SSP Expert. Overall, he was most accurate. Also, there was a machine gun side-match (a fund-raiser for the club) where he took 1st place. He is one happy gunny.
- The other guys are bringing home trophies as well: 1st place ESP Expert, 2nd place SSP Expert, and 3rd place ESP Marksman.
- Apparently, the prizes were good and plentiful, too. I even won a set of sights. I guess you didn't have to be present to win.
- The weather was terrible - seven inches of rain (icky-poo).
Looks like a good time was had by all.
