“The 2010 Indiana State match was all about high round count. Seven of the ten stages were 32 rounds, which made for an interesting day. Sunday’s weather was the best of the weekend but with humidity in the 95%+ range, attrition would start to take a toll if you weren’t careful,” commented Cheely.“I was in the top five for nine of the ten stages, but missed winning the match by only 3 match points [.29%]. I was happy to see a friend of mine, Jim Tarr, shooting his own SIG USPSA P226 in the lead after the weekend was over. The next match on my schedule is Area 7 Championship, where I’ll look to improve upon some of the lessons learned this past weekend.”

Cheely will be competing in the USPSA Area 7 Championship in Fulton, NY on August 5-8th, 2010.
