VFS Benchrest August Match

Pictured from left to right: Wayne christian, Joel Nader, Ron Orton, Ron Carter, Sheldon Turf and sitting down Stan Lapointe.

Today started out calm, but half way through the match the wind started and things began blowing all over the place! Even though our targets were flying off the target stands, we still had a couple of good scores.

Wayne Christian shot 50-5x and took the Grand Agg with a 497-23x, nice shooting Wayne. Sheldon turf shot a 250-11x at 100 yds for a 1st place and Howard Bloom shot a 250-17X for second place at 100 yds, but he just couldn’t catch Sheldon.

Our next VFS match is September 22nd, Setup at 7am, start at 9am, and we have 22 Rimfire match at the same time.
