We started Florida State this morning with 91 shooters (68 men, 23 ladies). The way we score matches is that each shooter competes against one individual, drawn randomly by computer. If you win, you get a W on your scoresheet, if you lose, you get an X. We're shooting a 4X match, which means that if you lose 4 times, you are through shooting.
We shot 8 rounds today, and lots of folks have gotten their 4 Xs. They are done. The ladies are down to their top seven shooters, which will be decided in the finals tomorrow. The men had 26 shooters in the 8th round, and several of those got their 4th X.
Your humble scribe is carrying two Xs into the draw tomorrow morning. I'm sure that the big guns will have their way with me tomorrow, but it ain't over until it's over, and I'm still in it.
Belle and I are ensconced in the hotel, enjoying an adult beverage. We'll start home tomorrow after I'm through shooting.
