There were a lot of things going on last Staurday that competed with folks coming to the Match. I know that several of our fairly regular competitors had a match at their home club, the State Cowboy Action Match was under way, the Three Rivers Festival was an attraction, Doc had to go judge a horse show and Gary had shoulder surgery. But – we still had an even dozen folks show for the match.
We had just about as nice a day as you could ask in mid-July. It was warm, but not punishing (at least not until we were finished) and we had a wind from the west just about all day. I want to thank everyone for coming out. The match went very smoothly with no issues or hiccups at either the firing line or in the pits..
We made awards on a different basis for this match, using NRA classifications. Aggregate Class winners were:
High Master/Master: Mike King 775 – 26X
Expert/Sharpshooter: Randy Jahn 749 – 14X
Marksman: Bruce Bunting 665 – 4X

Our next match will be August 17th – the THIRD weekend – to miss conflict with the NRA High Power matches at Camp Atterbury. This will be the Mike Gingher M1A Memorial Match, shot from 300-yards in the M1A Match format. We will shoot in M1A and “Other rifle” classes, so everyone is welcome with whatever rifle you choose to shoot.
