It was superior Spring weather for
this match; sunny all day and little wind until late in the
match. 28 shooters showed up for this match.
A new match record was fired in Precision Class by Tim Hagedorn of 58
out of 65 targets, with Jim Williams only one target behind Tim.
Great shooting Tim and Jim!
We had an exciting four-way shootoff for first place in Hunter
Class between Scott, Chase, Breck and Nichole. Chase and Nichole
are both young shooters and did a fantastic job. On the first
round of the shootoff, no shooter scored, but Breck knocked down this
625-yard shootoff target with a hit on the stand. A 500-yard
target was substituted, which only Scott hit on his first try to nail
first place. Chase hit this target on the second try, for second
place. Nichole had the target surrounded with close hits, but
didn't connect, ceding third place to Breck who did connect.
Some shooters promised to send me digital photos of the match - will post when available.
