    Sounds like a day to work on the mental part of the sport. Keeping focused after 70+ shots will be the challenge.  See you there.

    Remarks:  
    Conditions were perfect for shooting – calm winds, sunny skies. It was a hot day. The aroma of cow manure was present throughout the day coming from the neighboring farms.  

    It was going to be a long day of shooting. I still wanted to do a WFTF style format with one shot per target but shooting the targets twice. The targets were shot left to right in
    numerical order. Shoot left target first, then shoot right target second, go back shoot the left target for the third shot and lastly shoot the right target for the fourth shot. I gave shooters 4 minutes to shoot 4 shots. The shooters start the timer when they are ready. Some shooters will be going to the Crosman GP match and 4 minutes is what they give you for 4 shots.  

    We had three pop-up canopies for shading the shooters. It was good to have to keep shooters out of the blazing sun.   

    Since it going to be a long day of shooting, I ordered pizza and it was delivered after 12 noon for lunch. After shooting approximately 10 lanes – 40 shots, the pizzas arrived. We stopped shooting and ate lunch under the shade.  

    Jerry La Rocca drove all the way from upstate NY (4 1/2-hour drive) to shoot our match. He shot the first half of the match with his LGU and then switch to his TX200 for the second half after the lunch break.  

    Ray Apelles shot match high (69/80) with his Custom D54 bullpup – Very fine shooting Ray.  

    Thank you very, very much to all who helped setup, attended and also to those who helped take down the course.
