Stage 5 and 6 went well at the #WestCoastBrassfest despite the massive delay between them. I was first on stage 5, and didn't have a great idea for options to shoot it, I just knew the clamshell target was fast. Since I'm shooting minor, I double tapped the activator, then shot the big popper and almost tried for one more but swung to the clamshell and double tapped it, I had almost no sight picture and got lucky with an A-C. I then shot two steel, doubled the other activator, shot the steel behind it and then the drop turner, A-C again... it was hectic, but it worked.
1st Limited, 12th overall, 8A, 2C
Then instead of shooting stage 6, they sent us to chrono. I came in 131pf. When we came back for 6, a squad was just starting 5, and they didn't have enough ROs to shoot both squads back to back on the shared bay... we waited. I was then last on our squad for 6.
Stage 6 I tried to minimize transitions and the up/down strategy seemed to acomplish this best. Fast and efficient, a slow reload, but good enough to win the stage for Limited.
1st Limited, 7th Overall, 16A
