On December 31, 2018 eight (8) shooters made it to the Midland Sportman’s Club for the annual New Year’s Eve Rifle Match. Unlike last year where the starting temperature was -5 F, this year we had relatively pleasant temperatures in the low 30’s, and inside the tent it was probably approaching 50 F (nearby the heater, of course).
A few snap-shots of the competitors:
Results: 2018 New Year’s Eve Match
High Sling Shooter was Ray Gross with a 397-21X. High F-TR was Tom Fisher with a 398-23X. High F-Open shooter was Tony Dekelaita with a 397-21X (I suppose we could be caty and mention that he was the only F-Open shooter, too).
That was our last match of 2018 (there wasn’t anything left of the year). We will likely begin the Winter league in March. The program and dates are available here: 2019 Winter Mid-Range Prone League Program.
If the weather is “frightful” you may want to consider the Snow Country English Match Series: 2018 Snow Country English Match Series.
