    If there ever is a bad drought, all we need to do is plan a FT match and all will be well!

    Remarks:  
    With scattered thunderstorms forecasted, we lucked out with the weather. It did not rain during the match. The sun came out towards the end. We only had wet grass to deal with during the match. Winds were calm but were tricky enough switching left and right. Overall it was a surprising good day to shoot field target. 

    We used plastic laminated scorecards and permanent markers just in case it rained.
     
    We had three pop-up canopies setup over the half of the shooting lanes. 
    We had one Gamo target that lost one of the two face plate bottom bolts and malfunctioned. I replaced it with a spare field target. 
     
    We had one group with three shooters (I, Chas and Vasyl) and two groups with two shooters each. Our group with three had two shooting (one each on different lanes) while one scored for both. 
     
    We finished early just in time for the sun coming out and taking down the course in record time, 
    Thank you for all that attended and helped take down the course. 
     
    Our state match is in October and it will be located on another location in Lebanon as well. 
     
    Next FT match: 2018 October 21st Sunday CT State Match (change in location)
