    It was a while since our last match and a lot of people anticipated attending this match. One of last days of September was not expected to be this sunny and hot. We had great turn out, 15 shooters showed up to shoot the match. We had 3 new shooters shooting field target for first time. John Swenson from New England Airguns, John Dearcangelis,  and Alan Egolf tried field target for first time and all are eager to come back for more. Pete Sweeney was shooting for his second time. 

    It was fairly difficult course at 35.18 Troyer rating. With constant sun mirage was causing ranging problems for many shooters.  Equipment got heated past 110F degrees on constant direct sun and it was unknown territory for some shooters. There was slight wind time to time, but overall it one of least windy matches this location is capable of. Really could not ask for better shooting conditions. 

    We started sharp at 9 am. After brief safety meeting by Ron, squads were announced and shooting commenced. We had 3 cold lines during the match. One target needed more clamps as it shifted from its wood base. One target had to be replaced, but overall teams moved smoothly from lane to lane. We had 4 targets (8 shots) to shoot at each lane. We shot them near to far one shot each and then shot them again near to far for one more shot. We used timers and gave everyone 8 minutes to address and shoot the lane. Time started when the shooter picked up his rifle. 

    After the match most of the guys stayed and helped to collect targets and wound up strings. It was fun shooting day outdoors. Now waiting begins for next match.

    Yes, great report Vasyl.  Thanks for calculating the Troyer rating. Yeah, range finding those 50+ yard targets with the mirage was challenging!  Sorry I had to leave so soon after the match. 

    Looking forward to the CT state match on the 20th. 

    See  you all there,
