10.9 Day


October 9 Celebrated as 10.9 Day - Honoring the Quest for Excellence


The world has become con- tent with being average. In our world, average gets you nowhere. A 10.9 in our sport is the mark of perfection, proof positive that excellence has been achieved. That’s the goal if you’re shooting over a half a football fi eld away and aiming at a target measur- ing no more than the width of a dime or whether you’re standing 33 feet away trying to punch pellets into a bulls eye no bigger


than the period at the end of this sentence. Excellence is a virtue of your USA Shooting Team and on 10.9 (October 9), we encouraged our community to aim for excellence in all the shots they take in life. In the course of human


events, excellence and the pursuit thereof, has always been rewarded whether it was land- ing on the moon, winning an Olympic medal, or overcoming


personal hurdles and obstacles. This day is in recognition of that pursuit, both for those that have achieved excellence and for those continuing to strive for it. Every day on the calendar is a silent monument to these epic hours in humanity and remarkable feats of strength and heroism. On October 9, we recognized those moments in time when the ordinary became extraordinary, when jaws were


dropped. We hope on 10.9 Day and every day, we continue to strive for excellence in all that you do and may every shot you take in life be in pursuit of the highest mark – your 10.9.
