They said it would rain, there was a high wind warning. Fiery hail was expected, well really not. However, something kept shooters away.
On an overcast, and relatively still morning, we had four (4) shooters arrive, and two shot personal bests. Not sure what kept everyone else home, Easter Saturday is usually a great time for a match. Today not so much.
The high F-TR shooter was Scott Burr with a 399-30X, his personal best. There were no F-Open shooters. The high Any Rifle shooter was Leo Cebula, with a 400-24X. His first string was a 200-16X, which is about as good as he could remember shooting for a twenty shot string.

Mom Nature decided to give us another nice day. Although it was 23 F when I opened the range at about 9:10 AM, by the time we were shooting it was in the 30's and by the time we finished in the 40's. For Michigan it was almost tropical.
Fourteen shooters for this match. High F-TR shooter was John Pierce with a 399-21X. High F-Open was Jake Oswald with a 396-12X. Lastly the high sling shooter was Matt Gorby with a 398-25X.
