Current Match Report
Here's the link to the March 2019 match:
It's clear that while I may be out of practice over the winter some of our shooters are not! Some great performances today! The weather could have been worse - we had light sprinkles periodically and a more steady rain for about a stage but overall I'll take it over 90+ deg weather in August.
I'll start with the young 'ens since they really stole the show on the one second challenge. If you look at the stage breakdowns you will see that the youth really do have the quickest reflexes. Jay S took that stage but Quinn F had the fastest string of 1.04 sec. Jay was also top Youth (open) with 69.16 sec and second place in Limited (110.08 sec) with Jay in second place Youth (open) with 79.56 sec. In the Junior category Gunnar F (Limited) took the top spot edging out Jordan B (Open) with a 101.65 sec to Jordan's 103.24 Sec. Both are excellent times!
Continuing the Top honors. Top Lady and third place Limited goes to Jen D with a fast time of 97.29 sec. Top Senior and second place Open went to Scott S burning up the range at 60.05 sec.
Overall match winner was Dillion S (open) - shooting for a total of less than a minute today - with a score of 52.03 sec. Second place open was Scott S as mentioned above and third place goes to Steve G very close behind with a 61.68 sec.
Limited top place goes to Joe M, out in the lead with 73.03 sec, while Quinn F came in second with 84.14 sec followed by Jen D at 97.29 sec.
First place in Manually Operated Harry B was right up there with the limited and open shooters at 83.20 and second place was Carson F at 126.54 sec.
Thanks to everyone who came out and helped set up and all the safety officers who work extra hard to ensure we are all safe and allow this match to happen. We are always looking for more folks to join the ranks of rimfire safety officer. Talk to me if you are interested. The more safety officers we have no only the more squads we can run but it makes it easier too!
See you next month - last Sunday in April the 28th.
