Everyone wants to shoot with the Guapos. It's getting harder and harder to stay together, as these matches are getting more popular. I really think it may be time for them to hold matches on Saturday also.

The matches have exploded this year. It kills me to see 30+ people every week not get in but we started the year holding matches both days last year. We had 72 people in April and 63 in June so I called it quits. It spread my guys thin and didnít work because no one steepped up to help and or shoot on Saturday. I needed ROís to step up and they simply didnít. I even watched you personally squad in squad one and not take the lead at least a couple times when the Guapo squad was thin. On top of the fact that squad one never splits up and is always members only. My squad would split in 2 or 3 and shoot both days trying to make it work, but it simply didnít. When the work is work and doesnít lead to any fun, itís sinply not worth the effort.

I'd be happy to shoot on Saturdays and RO. I'm free now to spend more time helping.

Weíll see. Next chance would be June. Iím talking to Mike and staff about it this week. We will likely do double session knockdown steel going forward and same for steel challenge. Like 830 and 130 6x12 gives us 144 open slots. Should be plenty to go around.

I don't  shoot any type of those steel matches, and have no idea of the rules. Not sure if the rules are similar or different than USPSA. But I can help RO one of the days if needed.

Thanks but weíre more looking for the shooters to RO the squads and be evenly spread throughout the matches. The rules are similar itís just more fun than uspsa :) you should try shooting steel

Ok. I've also told Nick and the others, that if they need to move me into a squad with no RO's, just give me a heads up. And they have done it.

I am guilty last year and this year of not stepping up and help more.  Life has gotten on the way.  I will do my best to help more this year, likely not enough to help with the surge in shooters for the matches.

I really am thankful for the effort and the work done by everyone involved and considered myself lucky To be a member and have the opportunity to register earlier.  I will also as a rule will not register if I am not 100% sure I can make it.  Even if that means shooting in a different squad.  30+ shooters not being able to participate is sad.  But the few people doing all the work can only do so much.

I Fear No Evil, for you are with me

Oh well, I'm out. Withdrew a few minutes ago.

After getting all my gear ready and spending time at the reloading bench last night, (not to mention taking time off work on thursday so I could go help set up) my lower back went all wonky in the middle of the night with muscle spams again.  Very strange, I was dreaming my back was hurting but I had to move all these heavy items out of the road to get my car through and hurt my back worse doing it.  A little while late I woke up and the pain was still there (actually a lot worse than in the dream lol)

Heating pad, muscle relaxers and anti inflammatories, and I'm sort of able to stand up for about 30 seconds at a time. I'm getting dressed... and have been for over an hour now. Slow going. I have to go to work! If I don't, I will have a crew of guys getting paid time and a half sitting around looking at each other because they don't know where to go or what to do. The best part for me is, if I'm not okay to work Monday, I won't get paid the OT for today.
  Oh... I was also supposed to take someone to the range this evening. That doesn't look too good. lol

Sorry to hear Cas. You need to start an exercise program to strengthen your back.

Anthony, move over to squad 5 since we now have an opening.

I had to get some bags of blacktop out from under those low rack things at Home Depot a couple weeks ago, which meant picking them up hunched over and it got me good.

That sucks cas. Warmer weather and hopefully better days are ahead for you and your back.
