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.

Another Fine day at DSRPC with temperatures at 107 degrees. The wind was blowing every which way, but I got lucky on the long yardage. But on the short side, both Sheldon Turf and John Ames, shot a 50-5x prefect score. Great shooting guys! Again, I want to thank the out of state guys for coming to our match and for bringing lunch!

What a day! Windy, with gusts up to 35mph and mirage like you would not believe. Our targets were being blown right off the target holders.

There will be no VFS match in May. Our next match will be on June 23rd. We are still having the 22 Rimfire match.
