Long time no Blog

Well its been a long time since I've blogged, so here is what has been happening in my life recently. 

I went to AZ cup in Phoenix a week or so ago. I ended up ranking 7th, finishing OR's 6th and winning both the international and open team rounds. During the FITA I shot a new personal best in competition at 90M with a score of 308, the third highest score on the field. 70M was A 311, 50M 315 and 30M 340. It was not as windy as I figured it would be as the last two years were really windy so that was good. 

The OR's were the next day and I had my best Rolling Rank tournaments since moving out to the training center. I shot a 107, 109, 107 I got nocked out in the 1/4 rounds by the #2 ranked seed, Nesting from Norway. 

On Friday, Brady Ellison, Tyler Domenech and myself shot in the Open Team Round beating all the other teams including another team from the Resident Athlete program taking the cash prize of $120. The three of us also shot in the National Team Round on Easter Sunday against Norway and Great Britain. We were again successful and took the Gold.

The next interesting thing that has happened since my last update is that TaxMasters invited myself and a few of my teammates up to Long Beach to see their sponsored GT Race car run in the Speed World Challenge. Their team name was Brass Monkey Racing. The driver ended up piloting the porsche to 7th place during the 50 minute race. 

The track was on the streets of long beach over 2.5 miles long. The cars were turning 1:26 lap times averaging over 70 MPH. In the long front stretch the cars were moving at over 150 MPH.

Overall everything has been going really well, scores are increasing and I'm having more fun.
