We had some really fine weather and shooting conditions for the match. Low shooter turnout kept us to 4 competitors in the unlimited class. No factory class shooters signed up.
Right out the gate, in the first match and first relay Keith Myers went in search for the all illusive high scoring point area we all know as the “eye of the groundhog”. After the first card Keith was scratching his head. Everyone sooner or later did the same and Howie Bloom came out on top at the 300 yard match.

We moved the target frames in to 200 yards for the next yardage and Mr. Mirage showed up. Should be easier shooting 100 yards closer… right. Oh, did I mention the target gets really small and the mirage makes it real blurry at this time of day. By this time, you would have thought the only scoring ring on the target was that “eye “of the ground hog. It‘s time to make up some points. It sure is easy to count by 5’s and 15’s. Keith used one of his targets to really make up for some lost points. Ron Carter just kept chugging along shooting 10 rings.
