The formal 2019 High Power Season closed on Saturday, October 12th with the Mid-Range Tournament. The tournament consisted of three 60-shot matches which could be shot with any rifle (Service or Match) but at least one Match had to be shot with iron sights.
As suited a day in early fall it was a brisk morning, about 35-degrees at the match start and it only warmed up to 45-degrees as the day went on. The light 7 MPH wind from the SW built up through the day and by the last Cease Fire at 1:30, it had wound up to a 13 MPH wind with gusts to about 25 MPH. But – it didn’t rain and we can claim that for 2019 we did not have a single High Power Match rained out.
Eleven shooters made up the group of participants. Mark Walters won Match 1, an ANY/ANY Match, with a 200-7X clean but Dan Weigel took the other two matches with an ANY/ANY 198-7X and an ANY/IRON 197-5X.
Overall Match results were:
First: Dan Weigel 594-22X
Second: Mark Walters 590-18X
Third: Don Link 570-12X
Thanks to all who came out for the Match and Thanks to the folks who made it happen while I was out of town.
Our next Match will be a 40-round Winter Offhand Match on the second Saturday in November, November 9th at 9:00 A. M. Note the day and time– a change from our 1:00 P. M. Sunday format we have kept for a long time.
