The 2009 USASA National Championships at Copper Mountain, Colorado

Boy oh boy it was quite a week in Copper Mountain. Many of the best in the world were there competing for spots to be on the upcoming olimpic team. There was no holding back as the season slows as the winter ends. Lucky for me there was plenty of beautiful weather. By that I mean clear sky at least in the morning for a few hours, but the temp was -9 one morning. That’s a tough way to start my day shooting. Having to get my gear up a mountain in bitter cold weather. But well worth in after I warmed up.
