Shooters in Las Vegas enjoyed a nice break in the weather pattern to sunny skies and 70 degree temps. VFS in the SW region is growing in the right direction. We had shooters drive in from Arizona and Idaho to experience the great matches put on here in Las Vegas
At 100 yards only two shooters shot clean. Howard Bloom took first with a respectable 250-20X. Trailing by only one “X” in second was Keith Myers scoring a 250-19X. And in third with a 249-19X was Tom Debacco from down under in Arizona.
After moving the frames, adding more wind flags, and filling our belly’s, we started the 200 yard match to some tough conditions. Shooters started dropping points as the day went on. Tom Debacco got busy scoring a 248-4X to take first. In second place Keith Myers shot a 247-6X . Third was awarded to first time shooter Ron Carter with a 247-5X.
Totaling up the 100 and 200 yard aggregates showed who reached the summit first to win the Spring Mountain Classic. Congratulation to Keith Myers for his first place win.
Our January cover girl and 2012 VFS National champion Sandra Simon once again shows the boys how it’s done. Sandra and her faithful chauffer Don Carter drove up from Mesa Az to Las Vegas on a mission that wasn’t impossible.
At 100 yards Sheldon Turf won the yardage with a very respectable 250-21X. Second place was match director Keith Myers scoring a 250-17X. Placing third and not giving up was Sandra Simon with a 250-15X tying with her chauffer but winning by Creedmoor.
Next up at 200 Sandra Simon takes first place with a 249-8X. Placing second with a 248-11X was Keith Myers and third was Howard Bloom scoring a 248-5X
Congratulations to Sandra Simon placing first in the grand aggregate and winning the Nevada State Varmint for Score championship.
Shooters in Las Vegas battled for the win in the “Glitter Gulch” 100/200 yd Varmint for Score Match. Our normal attendance was a little low considering the big group match in Phoenix the same weekend. But with sunny skies and cool crisp temperatures five shooters enjoyed the day not expecting the unusual outcome of match winning equipment.
We started first at 100 yards with a warm up match following five record targets. Mirage played a factor in the lower than usual “X” count except for one shooter. Sheldon Turf took first place with a respectable 250-18X. Keith Myers and John Seines both tied with 250-10X scores with John taking second place after shooting a better first target than Keith.
Next up was the 200 yard match after the warm up. Here is where things got very interesting for the next five record targets. Ron Levesque shooting his 6PPC HV group gun came preloaded to the match and proceeded to stay clean at 200 yards. For some of you this might not come as a surprise considering the inherent accuracy of the PPC. But Ron shot a 250-6X with only two wind flags the whole day! It could not have happened to a nicer guy. Coming in second place with a 248-3X was match director Keith Myers. Third place was Tom Guisewhite scoring a 246-6X.
Congratulations to Ron Levesque for winning the “Glitter Gulch” NBRSA Varmint for Score 100/200 match!
