Great weekend, informal competition

Had a great day Saturday. To celebrate my wife being sworn in as a US citizen we invited some of her Filipino friends out for a day of eating and shooting. I smoked ribs in the morning and shot 90 rounds through my mini 14 before they showed. After they all got there I arranged a little competition for them. A dollar in the pot got 5 shot with my 10/22 at about 30 yards. I scored the targets and the high score won the pot. They shot 3 different contests and had a blast. Each one of them asked when can we do this again. My wife did me proud by getting a tie in the first contest and winning the second. She was third in the third contest. I enjoy the company and teaching them about shooting and firearm safety.
If you do what you have always done you will get what you have always got. Is that what you want?

Sounds like fun-gun day, for sure.
Some of the best days at the range have been impromptu matches like yours.
Like a pickup ball game.

Informal competition is the best competition.

Informal competition is the best competition.

I have more pure fun when I'm at the range,,,
And someone offers a friendly match.

Like a pickup ball game.
That describes it perfectly.
