Beating a surprising number of service rifle shooters, Kyle Matzelle fired a 394-17X to lead the category.  For F-Open, Mike Ruhlman was the only competitor; he fired a 393-12X.  Charles Hayes was the only F-TR competitor and fired a 383-10X. There were two (2) Palma Rifle shooters, and one of them cross fired two times, allowing Leo Cebula to post the high Score of 383-9X.

Web Site Issues

As some of you noticed during the past week to ten days semno.org has been up, down, and sometimes simply non-responsive.  This was due a hacker attack that caused semno.org and five other related sites to be infected with a Bot.

It required a good deal of effort to first remove the Bot, and secondly to repair the damage that it caused.

However, we are back up, and running.  We now have new firewalls that hopefully will prevent another infection.

2022 Suburban Mid-Range Prone Match 3 – Final Results

On a calm, still day we had eleven (11) competitors see two (2) F-Class 600’s fired.

In F-Open, Marcel Bollinger fired a 600-37 to lead the field.  In F-TR Charles Hayes fired a 600-41using a 223 Remington with Hornady A-Tip 90 grain bullets. I had to look back to the Halloween Match of 2021 to find another 600 in F-Class.  That was Bret Solomon with a 600-53 (which would have been an National Record, except for the fact that the match wasn’t registered).

Along with firing his 600, Charley also shepherded his grand son, Nikhil Datta who produced the third highest F-Class score with a 594-36 in F-TR.
