July 19th, 2014 Match Report
Our June match hosted 18 participants as they shot 25 entries on a soggy day. Heavy rain in the morning delayed the match but got lighter as the day progressed. At least the temps were very comfortable for this competition.
My faithful Assistant, Bob Smoller ran the match for me today, with the help of Robby Lawrence and Ron Dixon. Robby can always be called upon to be a good “mouthpiece.” I did finally show up after traveling 3000+ miles from Peru – so I received the “Greatest Travel” Award. We had a scare with Charlie Craft as he had an adverse reaction to some new meds, was taken home by Ron Dixon, and ended up at the ER. Checked on him today (7/22/2014) and he is back at home and OK. Thank you Lord!
Score leaders are as follows:
Squirrel Class - 37 D.T. Brakebill, Robert Demuth, & Ed Mundy
Semi-Auto – 36 Andy Cagle BRS – 40 Larry Griffin & Ron York
Unlimited – 37 Charlie Craft & .17 Cal. – 39 Chris Craft & Neil Truelove Neil Truelove
.22 Mag – 38 Neil Truelove
Special Thanks again go out to Robby Lawrence, Ron Dixon, and Neil Truelove, who tirelessly helped set- up, run, and closed down our match. And to the many participants who helped reset targets. “Many hands make any job smaller.”
Bob, my assistant, has advised me that he will be stepping down from his position after October. Please contact me if you would consider stepping up in service to this discipline as soon as possible, Bob said he would available to “show you the ropes” with the registration and line training at your convenience.
Our next match is scheduled for Saturday, August 16th, 2014. If you are interested in some fun fellowship and challenging shootin’ - then come on by and try your hand at our little game.
Remember to always –
*Aim Small & Shoot Small*
