We saw an opportunity with a nice Saturday in December and decided to shoot a match. Small turn out, only five (5) competitors. However, we enjoyed a day that was only slightly cool.
In terms of milestones it was the last time that our original Silver Mountain Targets were used in a match. We used two (2) of our original five (5). After the match all five (5) were packed to be shipped to another club. When the transaction is complete we will be replacing our original targets with Shot Marker eTargets. We expect to be using them for our Winter Mid-Range Prone league starting in March of 2019.
Our high F-TR competitor was Jim Grissom with a 399-10X. High Sling Shooter (Palma) was Ray Gross with a 399-22X.
2018 Pre-New Year’s Eve Rifle Match
We may try to run a New Year’s Eve match. If so, it will be run on December 31, 2018 (is there anyone who was surprised by the date?). It is entirely dependent on the weather. Last year we ran it on a day that dropped to -5 F at starting time. So, it will not be a function of temperature driving our decision. However, heavy snow, or ice would cause us to pass on running the match.
If 70 degrees F sounds better, I recommend our Snow Country English Match Series, program: 2018 Snow Country English Match Series
