I was there. Lots of grousing about the wind, especially for the first two targets (they are shot in rotation “relays”). Regulars agreed the conditions were tougher than usual, even though Open Grove is considered to be tough in general. It’s not just wind speed, but how fast and unexpected switches occur. ie, just as the flags show a shootable condition, one rotates in disagreement. Plus there are eddies and down-drafts coming off the shade awnings, nearby structures, etc. Very easy to get caught wrong.
That said the Open match was great fun, very well run, and all agreed we are very lucky to have a fantastic host like Joe. The battle to win was very close, and came down to Bill’s last target. He shot superbly, with discipline and patience, but came up one short in X-count to take second to Garrett.
