Mark Saturday, May 11th, as a day when the High Power shooters finally got a break from the weatherman! At 8:30 when we called shooters to the line for the safety briefing, it was clear and sunny! The temperature was a bit brisk, but what little wind there was came from the east and stayed at our backs for the entire match. If anyone had to put on more than minute or so of wind from their no-wind zero, I would be surprised. We had bright sun and some clouds during the day, but overall it was a good day to shoot.
Twenty one (21) shooters showed up for the match, the largest group since at least the 2017 season. Thanks to everyone who came out for the day. The first shot went downrange at 8:57 and the final “Cease Fire” was at 2:12. Again, congratulations to the shooters for a well disciplined and smooth running match.
At the end of the day, results were as follows:
Match Winner Mark Walters 778-25X
Match Second Joe Bakies 774-21X
Match Third Mike King 773-30X
Match 1 Winner, Offhand Mark Walters 188- 4X
Match 2 Winner, Sitting William Collins 199- 7X
Match 3 Winner, Prone Rapid Joe Bakies 199-10X
Match 4 Winner, Prone Slow Mike King 199-12X
Weather permitting, we will start Thursday High Power practice on Thursday, May 15th. Our next High Power match will be Saturday, June 8th. Maybe we’ll get another good weather day!
