Saturday, November 9th was the opening match for the 2019 – 2020 Winter Offhand season. This was the first time we have held this match on a Saturday morning, and 12 shooters came out for the match
The weather looked a lot like Indiana in winter, about 30 degrees and overcast – but no wind to speak of. The line filled up early and we got underway at 8:55. The final Cease Fire was at about 10:15, so it was a quick match.
Mark Richard “Creedmored” Mike King to take the top shooter of the day position. Both Mark and Mike shot 377’s, but Mark’s 7X bumped Mike’s 3X into second place. Mark Walters took third with a 364-4X.
The Overachiever of the Day award goes to Kris Hartwig with a 168-0X in the first string. Kris shot a 1917 Enfield with an open ladder sight that required him hold on the target frame for an aiming point.
The first target frame and electronics of our electronic target system were on display and several folks took the opportunity to log into the server hotspot on their phones. I plan to have the first target active for the next match to give me some experience on managing an active target.
Our next match will be the second Saturday in December – December 14th at 9:00. Come on out and join us.
