Our first match of the year could be called a three (dah) event.
If you’re going to compete in 30 degree weather, dress warm. Not every shooter did (dah).
If you plan to shoot in the Charger match, you need to bring your Charger. Not every shooter did (dah).
If you hope to shoot a good score it helps if you shoot your own target. Not every shooter did (dah).
And then there were the no-shows. One claimed he couldn’t make it because he was battling King Kong diarrhea. Another stood home gobbling down a copious amount of pills so he wouldn’t get King Kong diarrhea. And four other guys didn’t show for reasons known only to the ‘Shadow.’
Note: If you don’t know who the ‘Shadow’ is you’re probably too young to be shooting with this group.
When all was said and done, eight die-hard old men showed-up to discuss allowing tuners to be placed on Chargers, to bitch and moan about other stuff, and to send some bullets down-range.
As all the shooters had a tuner on their rifle, most shooters had at least one good relay but only Howard Bloom was able to put three good relays together to win the rifle match going away with a very good total score of 711.
As usual by the time the Charger match started the wind had increased and any chance of shooting 70 or above was slim. But a win is a win, and the win went to our match director Brian Jones who hit 64 out of 80 animal silhouette targets.
