Good Stuff.

Thanks for setting up the course Ron. We lucked out with the clouds and fog. Could have been much hotter. The misses on some of the far targets were head scratchers. Wind was light, but very switchy and tons of mirage towards the end of the match. 

Good group of shooters. Leo, hope you'll be well enough for the MRA match next Saturday. 

See everyone there,

Chas

     Being unsure if my rifle would be back from a refresh and new riser install I bowed out earlier this month. Fortunately it came back last week giving me time to get it set up. 

    On my drive there it was foggy, drizzling and even rained a bit. Fortunately it was only overcast at Ron's house. I arrived before most, giving me time to say hello's and get my gear together casually before sight in. The sight in line was longer than usual this time and it was appreciated.

    The conditions at match time were overcast, mid 70's with 1-2mph 'winds'. This meant aim-on shooting for most targets, a few requiring favoring an edge. After 4 lanes the sun burnt through and temps came up quickly, as did the breeze. A light switchy movement turned into a 2-3mph push. Oh, don't forget mirage, that kicked up too. If you weren't paying attention, and aimed while the wind switched or changed speed the mirage will have you aiming at the wrong spot and scratching your head afterwards. 

    The match went along without too much interuption ending a bit past noon. My rifle worked well, allowing me to discover some new deficiencies to work on. 

    Thank you Ron for allowing us to tear up your lawn from time to time.




     
    Thanks so much for the report Leo - I hope you continue to mend rapidly. And our big thanks go out to Ron who stepped up with extra hours of prep to conduct final preparations and make the match run smoothly. You guys are a great team and a great asset to our region's shooters.

    I'll add to others' comments with some photos and a video.





























    It was really exciting to see the large turn out, and I hope the new shooters feel encouraged to return to more matches. 'Shoes only optional for the host, though :p
