It was all supposed to be a nice casual day with light winds and mild temps. Well so much for forecasts. The winds weren’t too strong but they were tricky, coming and going with regular direction changes. We modified a few stages on the run but sometimes you just need to deal with mother nature.
Today’s match started with 4 prone stages and finished up with 4 positional stages. Shooting 7” paddles from a barrel would have been a challenge but combined with the wind it was probably a step too far. We also had a barricade and loose strap stages engaging on 18” steel and a twist on 100 yard paper with it being shot from a table while standing or kneeling. We continue to evaluate each match to make changes and improvements moving forward.
We had 23 shooters today with 5 of those being 1st time competitors. We setup a mentor with each new shooter to give advice and help throughout the day. This match continues to draw new competitors and interest from people wanting to get involved in the discipline. Everyone as usual was very friendly and willing to answer questions. This is a special group of competitors. Thank you to all for your support and great attitudes.
