Great time also, many thanks to Glock, Mike, RO's, and CFRPC. This was the smoothest running match I've been to in the 6 years of attending Florida GSSF matches. Awesome job. I shot 5 entries. Started at 1, was finished before 4.

This match ran "smooth", because it ran "fast". Smooth is fast, eh?

Mike had enough stages set - but just as importantly, adjacent stages were run simultaneously by reducing timer sensitivity and (after extensive ongoing RO training), having the ROs keep the timers pointed at the muzzle and not at the ground or into space. When you run 3 adjacent stages simultaneously (or 2 stages simultaneously) things go that much faster. Our single squadding RO fed 3 stages and we never had a backup or significant wait all weekend.

I advocated this reduced timer sensitivity/simultaneous stage shooting for more than 2 years but it took Mark Ramsey from GSSF to come along and make it happen. It's an easy fix for slow matches, but ignored for YEARS. It does require some RO re-training and that has not happened system-wide... yet. Still a few ROs who "have always done it another way" and are too stubborn to learn and change. With Mark on the scene, I think this will eventually change and ROs be properly trained system-wide.

Orlando Fun

Had a very good match in Orlando. Thanks to Mike, the GSSF staff and the folks @ CFRPC. I also appreciate the opportunity to work with Jason Flesch and Darren Gordon from Okeechobee. They are very interested in having GSSF shoot @ their club in 2014 and it was a privilege to be able to answer most of their questions. We were able to work with a number of other NEW Ros and help them with their desire to get started on the right track.
I along with others will be more than willing to do the same @ future matches that we can attend. Just contact me through here either pm or email with any requests/questions you may have. Now I can rest up for a few days to be prepared for Griffin Classic III the weekend of Feb.23-24. Information on that match is posted here:http://www.glocktalk.com/forums/show....php?t=1470023

Thanks again Mike and Pat!

I seriously considered taking some camera gear, but I wasn't supposed to be hanging around...and I figured by the time I got there and shot the match, they'd be breaking things down...and they were.

I just got my RO gift from Glock for the Orlando match. I would like to add that I worked both days and didn't run across any shooter who wasn't polite and understanding of us rookies. Great job Mike and the rest of your crew! I will definitely be volunteering next year.

  • Weagle takes pics if he's there... nope, Ed's banned from FL!
  • girphoto (Gary) is a professional photog from FL and takes pics when he attends... nope, strangely missing from this match!
  • I grab a couple of shots if I'm not too busy... hmmm, nope!
I think we are largely out-of-luck for this match.

The only photo in the thread would show my oversize back end holding a timer!

OK, I couldn't stand it anymore. Where are the pictures??

This is the best I can come up with. Any other time I'd have taken a lot of shots but for some reason it just didn't work out right so these are the dregs that came out of the crappy camera that's always in my bike's tank bag.

If you don't recognize the railroad tracks from the photo, you are obviously in the wrong thread.

And, if you're really observant, you should be able to see our own SARDG in one of those short videos!
