Since Capt. Dick is recovering from the "long" weekend, i.e. three days of instruction and sun. I'll start this thread. :chris:

It was a warm day to say the least. Good thing I was just hanging back in the shade while my other half was breaking clays. There were more gals and guys with this one. It was a full class none the less. There were many new shooters in this group. After an initial instruction on proper mounting and technique, everyone was breaking clays with ease!!

All of the lady shooters were having a great time. This proves that the game can be enjoyed by everyone and that Coach Z/Richard can teach and instruct just as the same. Actually, I was told by Coach once that ladies learn quicker and are easier to teach because they don't have egos like men. Don't know what that's about. :innocent:

Yep, we had that same conversation last Friday (all guys that day). We all just shook our heads. :D

Can't believe I forgot to put a blurb on the special event of the day:

We had two little ones with us. Justin (age 12) and Devon (age 9). I had to pleasure of baby sitting while shooting pics. :p

Justin and Devon were both giving the opportunity to break clays too! Justin was eager to try, but Devon was a bit gun shy.

Quick instruction on technique:

I was completely wigged out by their stance. "WHAT IS GOING ON" I kept saying. Coach has already changed it up on me, and it's only been a couple days. Then I realized "oh, left hand shooters." Damn I need to pay attention.

Great pics. Thanks Sid.

It was once again a great clinic.

Did I see a rare sighting of the bjl333 in those pics?

This was a great class, everyone progressed very fast making shots in the morning that are usually accomplished in the afternoon.

Thanks for the pictures Sideous!

I had a great time and learned a lot. Had so much fun being yelled at by coach that I recruited 4 guys from work and we are going to next Friday's class.
