2019-20 Snow Country Match 1 and 2

On November 23, 2019 a Snow Country match was conducted at the Monroe Gun Club.  Eleven (11) shooters attended, and twelve (12) matches were shot.  So we now have scores for matches 1 and 2.

Clearly F-Class shooters are the majority so far this year.  Of the eleven, only three were sling shooters.

You may notice what may appear to be an anomaly in the results.  Sling Shooters can compete with irons, scope, or fire scores for each.  Both Dan Altman and Leo Cebula have done that so far this year.

2019-20 Snow Country Match 2

There are several matches being conducted.  In fact there are five coming up in December.  Still a lot of time to start and complete the series!

2019-20 Snow Country Match 1 Results

On November 9, 2019 we opened the 2019-20 Snow Country English Match Series at the Howell Gun Club.  Seven (7) shooters participated, almost filling the range.

Of the seven (7), six (6) were competing F-Class, and one (1), lonely shooter fired Sling.

You will note a little difference with the F-Class scoring (at least for a week or two to see how the F-Classers like it).  We scored X’s on the USAS50 Target, but we treated them as “11’s”.  Effectively, the F-Classers were shooting for a total of 660.  It is our hope that this will allow a more equitable distribution of F-Class scores.  Would be happy to hear your opinions.

2019 Halloween BSA Charity Match Results

On Saturday, November 2, 2019, we held our annual Halloween BSA Charity Match on the Midland County Sportsman’s Club. The day looked worse than it was. On the drive up there was spotty rain.  When we arrived at the club there was spotty rain.  However, it cleared off and other than being a bit cool (I define a “bit cool” as I didn’t feel like I needed gloves) it was a decent day to shoot.

We had a disappointing eleven (11) shooters, so we were finished by noon.  F-Open was won by Bret Solomon with a 597-37X.  F-TR was won by John Pierce with a 593-30X, besting Doug Boyer by 2X.  Target rifle was won by Mike Quillinan with a 597-34X.
