Results of the April 19, 2008 Potomac Rifle Match

The officially predicted blizzard did not occur (as we predicted).  Great match weather.  The match was full (41 shooters).  Shooters report having had a great match.

Many shooters have agreed to email me a short description of what gear (cartridge, rifle, optics, etc.) they were using, and I'll post that information here as it comes in, so check back.  Match photographer Duane Spethman will get me digitals ASAP, and I'll post those here too when they come in.  Finally, I'll invite shooters to offer comments about the match that I will post here also.

Here are the results:
