SUPER SPORTING 100 RECAP
53 SHOOTERS ATTEND!
This was our first 100-target Super Sporting event and you guys did great. If you haven’t tried Super Sporting before, you should. It’s like Sporting Clays, but with more machines and as many of you know, more machines = more fun. It’s like Sporting Clays but Super. What’s so super about it? I think its name is basically referring to the experience you’ll have while shooting many different combinations of singles and pairs. And one thing is for sure, you don’t need to be a super shot to try it.
How about the difficulty of the targets? We set the course with a nice combination of challenges without making it a difficult, stress-test of long-range targets. That’s not to say we didn’t have some long distance shots, we sure did. In fact, if a station had 3 machines, we focused on having a target for the beginner, the intermediate, and one for the advanced shooter. This gives something for all shooters to enjoy and gives the less-experienced shooter a chance to try the more difficult presentations.
The lunch was all BBQ chicken using Diana’s special recipe which is always a hit. Matched up with mashed potatoes, gravy, corn on the cob and cake for dessert. Thanks to everyone who tipped these ladies. They wanted me to tell you, thanks!
THE HOA DILEMMA
The HOA Dilemma went something like this. I’d like to start off by saying that we just recently purchased 3 new machines and, well, if it’s mechanical it can break and that’s exactly what the high target on station 9 did. Unfortunately, we had to throw out this station from the competition. What does this mean for the scores? It gives everyone full-credit for that station (nice shooting everyone hehe).
I’m sure you’re wondering what this has to do with HOA? Here goes: Homer Hansen shot a raw 93×100 (incredible shooting, by the way, Homer), however with station 9 being thrown out, this gave Ryan Holmes enough targets to rise from 91×100 to 94×100. When I told Ryan this outcome, being the stand-up guy that he is, he requested that I alter his score because Homer deserved the HOA. I agreed with him but since I can’t alter it in ScoringPRO, I wanted to explain it here and give kudos where kudos are due. So next time you see Homer Hansen, please congratulate him as he did have the highest score of the day. Moore N’ Moore would also like to congratulate him and to congratulate Ryan Holmes on his sportsmanship. Somewhere along the line, Ryan had some good parenting :). Way to go Homer!
KING OF THE TRIPLE
Great shooting Richard Takasago by being the only shooter to bust into the 50s with a 51×54 on the SUPER TRIPLES event. I have a feeling Richard has done some hunting during his time on Earth. However, I’m starting to think he might be from another planet with mad shooting skills like that. Argentina and Triples are so easy for him. Way to go, buddy!
NOTE: The next Super Triples event will have TRUE triples. Meaning all 3 in the air at the same time. Coming soon to the next Super Sporting 100 event. Yes, I’m slow, but I think I’ve figured out how to do it.
Thank you, Jim Bloomfield, for these great pics and taking the time out of your day to shoot them. Click the photos to make them bigger… do I really need to say that? lol

THANKS TO ALL!
Lots of work went into setting up that course. Basically, you’re setting up 2 regular courses for a Super Sporting event. Was it worth it? Heck yes, it was. Everyone seemed to have a great time and we’ll definitely be doing another one very soon. Hopefully, by the next one, we’ll have 4 machines on all of the stations but 3 worked out very well.
Thanks to everyone who came out to be part of the event. Also, I wanted to mention that I had the opportunity to attend the monthly NSCA fun shoot at Redlands Shooting Park and boy was it fun. Their attendance was 63 which is great. Really big. And I’m really happy to see your success. I look forward to doing events together for NSCA too. If you’d like to see the scores for this event too, you can click here.
