  1. Casual is fine, jeans and polo shirt used to be the norm. If you wear a tux you will stand out, if you wear a speedo you’ll be thrown out.
  2. “And as he drove on, the rainclouds dragged down the sky after him, for, though he did not know it, Rob McKenna was a Rain God. All he knew was that his working days were miserable and he had a succession of lousy holidays. All the clouds knew was that they loved him and wanted to be near him, to cherish him, and to water him.” ― Douglas Adams, So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish
  3. Yeah, but it’s a ‘dry rain’.
  4. I remember the rain in 2014; It’s strange that match seems so long ago, I’ve upgraded my camera 4 times since then, the one I used in 2014 - an A77 - got knocked over on one of the stages...
  5. 2017 Nationals was at this range and if I recall it was a little chilly first thing in the morning. I think they started just after the sun came up and I remember some deep shadows on a couple of the stages, soon cleared up though.
  6. The only ‘legal’ issue is if the image is used for commercial purposes, ie. to promote a product. There’s some good info here: AlphaUniverse
  7. I’m so sorry for your loss.
  8. This Twitter feed looks to be a good source of info : Twitter
  9. I am so sorry to hear this.
  10. Set up downrange you won’t be able to see all the targets, up range you get the competitor and the targets they are shooting at.
  11. I was planning to do something like this when I was doing the LiveShots video at Nationals, my plan was to have it behind the firing line using a large tripod that could see over any walls. Having it behind the competitor would eliminate any delays in setup as it could be done while the competitors are having their walkthrough. Setting up a down range camera for still shots is a lot easier as it only has to aim at a specific spot whereas the video needs to pick up the whole stage. As the camera would be in a fixed location it would be easy to do that ‘merged video’ thing that shows two shooters at the same time for comparison. Sound would come from a remote blue-tooth microphone that the RO could clip to their shirt or cap. This way all the range commands could be heard, clipping the sound to a lower dB rating would allow only the shooters gun to be picked up and not shots from another berm.
  12. There was a ruling issued concerning drones at Nationals but I can’t seem to find it anywhere. USPSA’s image release policy which governs the use of still and video images is at https://uspsa.org/documents/minutes/20180814 Image Release Policy.pdf
  13. ‘That ‘Production Optics’ thread was a monster... good times.
  14. I think the election company first certifies the results then notifies the BOD, then the candidates are notified and then it’s formerly announced.
