2017 NSCA US Open – Best Ever!

Posted on 13 June 2017

Well, it’s over now but, what a great event!  The last time I attended a US Open was about 10 years ago. It was an awesome experience; however, the tour-de-force that the good folks at Big Red Oak in Gay, Georgia put on was truly a mind-boggling experience.  I feel absolutely privileged to not only have been there but to actually participate as a vendor.

We are a new company and this was our first big show.  When I signed up last fall, I had my doubts as to whether or not we’d be able to pull it off because of our lack of experience. Well, let me say this: from the moment we got there, the organizers, especially Lisa Bashaw and Donny Roth, took care of everything!  I can honestly say, that from our perspective the event was truly a success – my only complaint is that I wish I’d shot a better in the one event that I had time to participate in 😊 Kudos to the entire staff at Big Red Oak!

Here are a few of our happy customers wearing their HardFocus Designs shirts at the US Open.

I get the feeling that next year’s US Open will be just as good, so if you didn’t get a chance to attend, definitely plan on making in 2018!  How was the actual shooting? Well, I’m going to leave that to the professionals. I saw folks from ClayShootingUSA and Clay Target Nation snapping pics. They always do such a good job of covering these shoots, I can’t wait for the next issue!
