Well, it was supposed to be warm, and I suppose it was sorta warm, in the low 40's. However, we didn't count upon the wind, which was 10-15 MPH, and added a chill to make your hands uncomfortable.  So scores were a bit lower than expected.

High F-TR shooter was Josh Moore with a 390-12X.  High Any Rifle shooter was Peter Church with a 393-23X.

We had a glorious day at Midland for Match 4.  The lowest temperature we experienced was in the 40's, and we had not even a hint of rain.  We had eighteen (18) competitors for our first good weather Winter League Match of 2018.

The High sling shooter (Any rifle) was  Peter Church with a 397-17X.  High F-TR Shooter was:  John Roethelistberger with a 398-18X.

2018 Winter Mid-Range Prone Match 4

 

On a cold day in April, we conducted the Annual Snow Country English Match Series Shoot-Off.  For the first time we had a Shoot-Off for F-Class competitors as well as Any Rifle (Sling) competitors.

As a result we proportioned the invitations based upon the relative proportion of competitors for each category.  As such we invited seven (7) Any Rifle, and four (4) F-Class shooters.

The Any Rifle Winner was Kevin Nevius with an 1184-68X, followed by Leo Cebula, 1180-60X, and Dan Altman with a 1179-58X.  For the F-Class competitors, Josh Moore was Winner with a perfect 1200-109X, chased by Ed Gostomski with a 1197-88X and Al Moore with a 1195-86X.
