I can travel to lots of other matches and let others do the work while I concentrate on shooting. The dedicated match director position would be for just one match a year. At some point when we have others assume that role, then I may shoot. I never considered myself a great multitasker. If I can focus on the main goal at hand, I can do a good job. I had fun competing against my "arch rivals" James and Jeff. But my main goal for the Western States was to run a good match for our guests. At the nationals in Texas, it will be to do my absolute best shooting (and have fun).
It looks like the donations more than covered the extra food and drinks. The rest will go into the club kitty for future range improvements.
