As promised, I am doing a post about the BB gun state championship competition that I went to on Saturday. I only have pictures from last year because the lady who took pictures has not sent me them yet, but I should have them soon! 😉 So, here we go. I woke up at 4 AM so we could coach Neil help check the guns in and set up. On the way there, my dad stopped by Sheetz® so we could get something to eat. After we got set up, we just hung out were the others teams were and waited for the other people on our team to get there. We had our test went everyone from all of the teams was there. While we competitors had our test, the coaches and parents had a meeting on the range. After testing, my team went downstairs were we set up our “base camp” (haha). Below is the order we were shooting in.
A Team B Team
As you can see, I was in the fourth relay, but when Clayton went up, I had to sit in the “Chair of Doom” (as Mrs. VanOstenbridge called it) at the ready line. In my free time, I was able to play on Naomi’s iPad with her and my sister (I should not have said that >_<). I was also reading my book some of the time. When I was finished shooting, because it was a nice day, I was outside lying on my back in the sun reading my book. Shaelyn and Mrs. VanOstenbridge decided to sneek up behind me and make shadow puppets on the pages of my book. We all had a good laugh about that! 🙂 Sadly, Liana and Anya had to leave early for some sort of school program, so they were not there for our team pictures. When we lined up for pictures I was in front of Tara, Michael’s girlfriend (their both about 15). She was just there in case someone could not make it, but everyone did. But anyways, she was in the picture and I was in front of her. but because she is so short, I could not be directly in front of her. Here is one picture from last year to make up for no picture of this year yet!
The coach who was loading for me last year was coach Jeff, but this year I had Colonel Flück. I also have a picture from the rewards night from last year which is this Wednesday night.
