And no, a 1996 Winchester model 70 is NOT allowed even though it has military roots with the Mauser….Match Directors have final say, and will loan you a rifle if needed.
Sanner’s Lake Woodstock Match Report – October 2017
A crisp and beautiful fall
day at Sanner’s Lake welcomed another full relay of enthusiastic shooters
manning the benches at the October Woodstock match. The low sun and long shadows lit up the
targets nicely but caused a bit of havoc on the firing line, with shooters
taking extraordinary steps including repurposing rifle bags and repositioning
spouses (see last picture below) to block the light and maintain a decent sight
picture against the backlit glare of the sun!
It was a tight race down to the finish with just a few points separating
the winners in both the combined and individual score categories. Barry N put it all together on one
string to take the top individual score of the day, a super 94-1X, with
Jonathan R and Paul St following closely with twin 93’s, Jonathan
taking second place with his higher X-count.
A high single score isn’t enough to earn the top combined category, though,
as Jesse W and his Argentine Mauser put rounds consistently down the middle
to take first place with a solid 272-7X combined. Verifying that consistency is king, Ron
F and Paul S were hot on Jesse’s heels posting twin 271’s, with
Ron taking second place with his 5 X’s. This
was the last Woodstock match of the year so thanks to everyone for coming out
and providing an outstanding display of shooting and, more importantly, giving
the old warhorses a chance to shine once again! For all the details see the October Match report.
