    You all would have much better luck in your pre-match rituals if you simply made one of these for each competitor you think might be able to beat you:

    I'm the opposite with the first bit.
    If it is very hot I think to myself, hmmm, nice and warm, I'm prepared for this but the other gooses probably wont be.
    If it is very cold and wet I think, hmmm, nice and cool, good, I'm and prepared for it, the other turkeys probably aren't.
    If it is windy, I think, hmmm, good, I go better in the wind.
    If it is calm I think to myself, hmmm, good, my gun and ammo is well prepared, should go well (I hope, or at least can not drop too many points).

    When those thoughts inevitably fall apart and things don't go well, I am more prepared prepared with suitable excuses.
    My most recent one being I had ignition problems.
    OK, the primers went off 100% reliably on time, every time, but the stupid gun wasn't pointing where it should have been on target when they did so.

    I wound up detained by a THP for about an hour and he left me pretty pissed off and I never regained my composure all day and my targets were ugly,,,

    it`s been a long time since I let myself get out of control,I would have been better off going back home after that,,,I was speeding but just write the ticket and lets go,,no need for the attitude,,

    People are forgetting the obvious.....
    You have to go PP before every stage …. nothing like laying down on your stomach for 30 min with that added "pressure".

    Urinate and then urinate some more. On a good day I even manage to make it to the urinals!

    So far, my pre-match ritual has consisted of:

    Trying not to fall asleep on the ride to the range.
    Drinking enough coffee to have caffeine jitters on top of my pre-match jitters.
    Peeing 10 to 15 times prior to signing up and at least 3 to 5 times before each relay.
    Drinking more coffee.
    Trying to be nice to everyone because I usually don't have enough coffee.

    My chicken sacrifices I do at home so I can have lunch...

    Another pre-match ritual. Walk onto the line to BS with people holding a 20-30 ounce Cafe Karuba. Have no idea why people kept shaking their head at me.
