Everyone had to wear a mask inside the Georgia Southern Shooting Sport Education Center in Statesboro, Georgia for the 25-meter State Championship. Masks were required even while shooting. Most athletes followed the rules despite it being a bit weird shooting while wearing a mask.
I noticed a few archers sliding their masks off while shooting giving them an unfair advantage. The cheat also created a pocket of their expired gases in the area where they stood on the line. It was unfair to their competitors.
I didn’t report it to the judges. If I could see the malfeasance they too should have been aware.
Aside from that, in my opinion unfair advantage of breaking the mask removal rule, everyone else was careful in relationship to potentially spreading the Covid-19 virus. I did notice one of the intermittent mask removers had an ample supply of religious icons on his person and equipment. He likely supposed that was all the protection necessary for himself and those around him.
The tournament went well as they all do at GSU. I was able to win again with an Olympic recurve in the Men’s Senior Division.
