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.
Our next match will be the start of the Suburban Mid-Range Prone League on May 12, 2018. That will be followed by the Michigan Fullbore Rifle Championship on May 26, 2018 (Saturday of Memorial Day weekend). The programs are available:
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.
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.
