Heading out to the NSSA World Skeet Championship

Nine months of preparation is about to be taken to the field. I started shooting skeet this year and in February decided that this was going to be the start of my run for the 2012 Rookie All-American honor.

I shared my early practice rounds and routines in “The Trail to San Antonio”. Lately, it’s been all business as I prepared to compete in my new-found sport.

My first shoot is Saturday, October 1st when I’ll be shooting the 12 and 28 gauge events in the mini-world competition – kind of a warm up to the world championship events. Sunday is 20 gauge and 410 bore. This is my first NSSA registered shoot and how I shoot in the mini’s will decide what class I shoot in for the World competition.

Then, starting on Monday, is the run for the roses. Monday I shoot the twin 75 target 12 gauge rounds. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday is 100 targets in each of the 20 ga, 28ga, and 410 bore events. 6 days straight shooting no less than one hundred targets. I am both excited and ready.

I spent a few hours at my home field to lock-in the program I have been developing with my coach all this year. Now we find out how it will go.

San Antonio, here I come.
