Saturday, September 3, 2022 was a calm sunny day, that turned challenging as the morning continued to noon. Twenty-four (24) competitors competed for the Michigan Championships.
For this match, we combined Palma, Service and Any Rifle shooters into a single category. The match winner was Gary Duda using a Palma Rifle with a score of 596-27. He was trailed by John Luitnik with a 593-19 and Peter Church with a 592-33.
Of note, Jason Quayle firing a service rifle briefly had a 200-8 in his first string. Unfortunately, his target was configured for a .30 bullet, however, he was using a 223 Remington. Given the few thousandths difference between the a .308 and a .224 I did not expect to see a change, but one close round converted to a “9” as a result of a change. Jason’s 199-8 was still his highest 600 yard score. Good job, Jason!
In F-Class the F-open winner was Dave Monette with a 599-36, followed by Marcel Bollinger with a 598-35, and Don Hicks with a 597-36. For F-TR Jim Grissom was high in a small turnout with a 591-22.
The next match at Midland will be the 4th of the Suburban Mid-Range prone league on September 17, 2022. Program is: 2022 Suburban Mid-Range Prone League
