    Yep, had a lot of fun today even though I didn't shoot too well. I really have to get another gun. This little 2 1/2" speed six just doesn't get it when the shots are out to 75 feet. I've got to get a 4 or 6 inch gun. Don't know whether to go with the six round or 8 round. Decisions, decisions. I'll look for a used one first. After all, I'm not made of money. Ha Ha

    ICORE is great and you get so much more trigger time.  Unlike IDPA, there is no 18 round limit for stages.  Also, there are fewer limits on movement disatance.  That's right!  It truly is RUN and GUN with the NVSA.  If you have not yet tried it, come out and give it a shot.

    P.S. No concealment garments required and no need to reload behind cover.  Just RUN and GUN!

     

    It's a blast.

    I finished 76th out of 266 or top 28.5 % in my division and class.

    Wendy finished 19th out of 76 or top 25% in her division and class.

    If things dont dry up. April will be lake stages. A couple of small boats and some inner-tubes and we can have a match.

    Ground is saturated. If the forecast for next two weeks is even close I wouldn't expect conditions to improve much. AND, we may havta start worrying about how high the river DOES get soon. PLUS, we share the range with two different LE organizations that already work around our schedule. YeeUP! It DOES suck, but we have been pretty lucky with weather the last few years.

    Makeup Match anyone?

    This is a great idea. Hope we don't get hammered like they say we will tomorrow. I'm a SDPS-IDPA shooter who has been excited to shoot my first match. Missed the first one (rain), missed alternate date (family pet tragedy), and now I'm hoping to come up Sunday to shoot in Gridley. Let's all hope the weather cooperates.

    I also have a couple of questions/comments/suggestions, for what they are worth:

    1.  I like the rotating picture in the banner, but for several of the pics, the words of the title run across faces, or otherwise mar the effect of the photo.
     

    I agree. I will be working to gain more pictures that lend themselves well to a 980x200 pixel format at future events. The title "North Valley Shooters Association" is hard coded into this theme. I can only turn it on or off at this time. Edit: Im not a CSS guy but I figured out how to change its location. (after an hour, im doing the happy dance:)) Finding pictured that lend themselves well with the title over the banner will be a project of mine when time allows.

    2. The new photo gallery is nice.  It would be kind of nice if the monthly shoot collections displayed in the right order (e.g., Jan before April, etc.)  Would it work to name them numerically (or add a numeric prefix) to get them to automatically sort in this way?

    I will work on that. They are currently ordered by creation date.

    3. From the photo gallery, there is no obvious way to get back to the main site.

    It opens in a new page because I am used to multiple windows open on multilpe monitors. I will change this to suite other users. The IDPA logo is a link back to the home page. It was quick and dirty. I intend to change it to an NVSA logo later.  

    4. one more thing - I typed this in with regular old returns for line breaks, etc., but it formatted it as one large paragraph, at least in the preview.  I can't figure out how to break it up so it's more readable.  (I'm on a mac using safari, in case that's helpful.)
