Once again, the never-ending wind made hitting the ten ring a real challenge for the shooters who showed-up for the August match. In the first rifle relay only Ron Cater was able to post a decent score of 238. The rest of us floundered around shooting scores in the two-twenties and below. One shooter cried and made excuses, then decided to get serious and keep at least one eye open while shooting the second and third relays – which vastly improved his score. In the end, a so-so final score of only 701 won the match. But a win is a win.

The Charger match was also plagued by very windy conditions, but right from the get-go the Charger match was a two-man run-away. The windy conditions just didn’t seem to faze either Jeff Barnes or Ron Carter. Both blasted out of the gate in the first relay shooting a 37 and 35 respectively. Throughout relay two the windy conditions worsened, but their scores didn’t. By the end of the match each had hit 72 out of 80 silhouettes. But the day belonged to Jeff who edged-out Ron on the tie-breaker for the win.
