Well, notwithstanding looking like we would drown in the heavy rain fall, three intrepid shooters showed up. Whether they were just looking for an excuse to get out of the house, I won't comment. However, we checked the app "Dark Sky" and it told us we had an hour of no rain fall. So we put up two targets and shot.
Starting about at 9:30 AM, we finished at about 10:45. All three of us had fired our sixty shots (in some cases more). Importantly, until the last ten minutes it hadn't rained. When it started to rain it was only a slow drizzle. Just enough to make you damp.
At any rate we had two F-Open shooters, and one Sling. The high score for the day was an F-Open shooter, Terry Scurlock with a 591-22X.
I don't know if it was the fact that we had dodged the weather, or if people just wanted to shoot, but everyone left the range smiling. I guess that made it worth it.
Please note the next match at Midland is the Halloween BSA Charity Match. It will be held on October 28, 2017. It is a 3x600, and scoring will be provided by the Midland Explorer Crew. The program is available here.
