July 2019 50/80 Match

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

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.
