Just wanted to drop a line with regards to our lesson in mid January of 2021. I was concerned after the lesson since Northbrook was closed then and didn't reopen till late February. I desperately wanted to work on what I had learned. I did practice mounting in front of a mirror, as suggested, and thought a lot of the ideas passed during the lesson.
Let's skip to November. It's been a great year. 6 total punches, 4 in 12 ga Fitasc, 2 in sub gauge sporting (one in .410 bore). I shoot mostly Fitasc, and I love the game. I've been stuck in "c" class and needed help. Thanks to you, I got it. This in spite of 6 weeks off in midseason due to an unrelated injury.
I still am a bit inconsistent but after shooting with many higher classification shooters, I see that they are not always on their game either. I can't believe the improvement. The odd thing is I seem to do better the tougher the targets are. I attribute that to greater concentration.
Thank you for your insights into the Churchill method and your steady guidance. I want you to know your skill is appreciated.
Just a short update. I shot the last Fitasc tournament of the year at Northbrook a couple of weeks ago. When finished I thought I had lost my opportunity to get my last punch to move to "B" class. I spoke with a few friends about the event and they all agreed that we had shot a "stout" event.
I checked scoring after the event was complete and, once again, I had won "C" class, and thus moved up to "B" class.
Merry Christmas and all the best in the New Year.
