Canadian Airgun Grand Prix - Day 3

Day 3 of the 2008 Canadian Airgun Grand Prix...

This second match was a bit of a struggle after the 1st 10 shots. I probably should have waited to try my new Sauer shoes because it seemed like I could not get into a good groove at all. I probably went through about 35 sighting shots and used up a lot of time but once I started I shot a 96 for my 1st string of 10 shots. I ended up with a 555 for my 2nd match. The combined score put me in 11th in a field of approximately 75 male pistol shooters including athletes from Trinidad & Tobago, India, and the USA.

After the match, I ventured out with local friends to get a small tour of Toronto. I went and checked out the CN Tower and got to see where all the big sports facilities were - Air Canada Centre, Rogers Centre.

CN Tower
the world's tallest freestanding structure on land from 1975
until the Burj Dubai surpassed it in 2007

Rogers Centre - formerly known as SkyDome
when the roof is open you could watch baseball games

I'm venturing down to the Award Ceremonies in a few minutes and will probably update again tomorrow with complete results.
