That’s a wrap. I would like to thank all the MARS staff members for all the hard work on getting this 2023 season on track and delivering a great experience to all of the MARS members. The amount of positive feedback and comments on your hard work, is a testament to what we are doing with our series.
To our generous sponsors we can not thank you enough for what you do for us. Shooters please thank these great companies as well as make sure you spend you hard earned money with the companies who support us. Also tell your friends and family about the products and services these great sponsors provide.
To the shooters WOW!!! An amazing season. I commend you all on being great shooters, competitor’s, and ambassadors to the sport. I applaud you all on your amazing displays of sportsmanship, that you exhibited throughout the season. The rules committee chairman had to make zero rulings on issues, and the staff received zero complaints about sportsmanship or bad behavior. This is exactly what we want to continue to do as a series. My hats off to you.
The Finale was amazing. Thank you to Match Director Richard Senn and his staff for taking the reins, to design, setup, and executing the 2023 MARS Finale. A great job. 12 fun, fair and challenging stages. Rich built and bought all new props never used or seen before for every stage. I’ll admit I was nervous. Rich comes up with a lot of unique stuff to test and challenge every aspect of a shooters ability. Great feedback from the shooters on the COF. I encourage you to head down and enjoy the matches he puts on in the OBX.
Congratulations to our top shooters in each division and also our new categories.
