At our November match Howard Bloom not only won going away, he almost set a new match record shooting a score of 725 with 33X’s. With his five top scores for the year now totalling 3584 and with only one more match to go, no one can catch him. His 2014 first place finish is secure. This will be the second year in a row that Howard has finished in first place. Congratulations Howie, great shooting.
Second and third place for the year will be determined at the December match as only 9 points now separate Brian and Joe, who is blaming the bulky clothes he wore to keep warm for his below average score this month. Yea Joe, it was the bulky clothes.
As for the rest of the shooters, the cool 50 degree temperature and 7 to 10 MPH breeze was a major problem for some, but only a slight problem for others. The scores tell the tale.

The award, (a pat on the back), for the most improved shooter goes to George whose scores over the last 4 months have steadily improved each month from a starting score of 454, to 676, to 683, to 704. Good shooting George.
