Re: Rimfire Challenge DADGUM DADGUM DADGUMMIT ITS CANCELLED

&#@^%&  It's cancelled.  I was going to get on the bubble and start practicing.  Now I guess it'll have to be for next year.  I think this virus crap is way overblown.  I wish they had gone ahead with the competition. 

https://www.rimfirechallenge.org/2020/07/30/update-2020-world-rimfire/

I was afraid my nephew had planned his wedding for the same weekend.  I sweated it for six weeks.  One day I got the info from him, and they were different weekends, and the next day they posted that the Match was cancelled.  Talk about a roller coaster of emotions.

This has been one big lost year.  Real or fake, appropriate of over kill, it doesn't matter.  Everything is strange.  Yesterday I was reading for some classes I am taking, and slowly my mind drifted to current events.  Think about the media, the "experts," politicians, and even the general public.  We have become a pessimistic society.  Everything is doom and gloom.  Every stat is based on the worst.  No positive about the future, only what we will never be able to do ever again.  Why don't we look at all the positives?  A 4% positive result for daily tests is a 96% negative.  Fifty percent more positives today than yesterday is often because of a 75% increase in testing.  Millions are out of work, but no talk of how several of those out of work are making more money on relief than on the job ($15/hr for 40 hrs = $600/week, and they were getting $600/week + their regular unemployment).

Just call me a Drift Specialist, but I have vented.  I will live with a year of no shooting events, but please look to a positive future and strive to achieve it.
If I appear taller than other men it is because I am standing on the shoulders of others.

I started looking for RCSA sanctioned matches in and around Arkansas, Missouri and Oklahoma and nothing.  Closest things I see for me are in Spring, Texas, and Woodville, Alabama,...both day drives. 

So I'm guessing the thing to do is to find a non-sanctioned match and practice up and then hit a sanctioned match.  As popular as these rimfire matches appear it would seem that there would be more sanctioned matches but there aren't.  Some clubs sponsor quite a few matches but then it's a "desert" inbetween clubs.  What up?

Orlando is the closest monthly matches, 8 hours away.

The Cavern Cove, Woodville, AL, is sponsoring the World and is less than 2 hours from here,  BUT, they don't have any matches scheduled between then and now.  Also Rim Fire World is the week right after World IDPA.  I'll think about it.

Best I think anyone can do to practice for is shoot Steel Challenge which there are a lot of, at least around ATL.


UPDATE:   RCSA web page has only the World Match listed for Woodville, AL.  However, if you go to Practiscore turns out they are doing monthly matches.  Come on guys, either keep the RCSA web page up to date or just refer everyone to Practiscore.

So I see two Practiscore apps for apple.  One of them is $10.  I suppose the $10 one is what you need?

 No. No.  Practiscore for competitors is a web site.  No app needed.  The app is for the Match directors.  It’s loaded on tablets and used for match setup and scoring.

Thanks for straightening that out for me!  I knew I was missing something.
