Cool this morning and breezy. 5 shooters in two matches starting at 9:30 and finishing at 11:30.
Several guys had to resort to the rarely used excuse file and were able to bat away epithets hurled in response. I myself claimed a pos gun after the first card and was allowed to switch for the next two cards. Jim was shooting a new non chocked poly barrel and did not have to fish for any help. LD quietly begged for some slack on a shot gone bad blaming a fly ran into his trigger and fired the gun. (His Marauder had a less then hair trigger). Mike was shooting a little .20 Ed gun and did not dip into the excuse bin on this first set. Roger just sat back and chuckled at the new excuses he heard.
The second set was a real tough go. Lots of wind and switching so fast that everyone had shots moving into the black. Wind flags say shoot left and as the trigger is pulled you should have been to the right. The little thin flyers tied the flags could not keep up with the movement of the flags. You could be tricked time and again.
The truth lies below …. There is always next time.

June 29, 2020 at 1:46 pm LinkThat second relay the winds were CRAZY!!! Little cyclones coming through the canyon. 360 degree wind changes every 10 seconds or less. It made sighters practically useless. And the most amazing part was Jim's score with an LV 12 FPE gun!!! Damn Jim, nice shooting!!! My little .20 EDgun Lelya gen1 did better than I thought it would, shooting HV, just under 20 FPE. It only gets about 30 shots per fill, so I was limited in how many sighters I could shoot (not that it did any good…). Thanks for the report Nick!

those were among the worst winds (best if you like a challenge) we have shot in for a while. Felt good to be back on the bench. and that little LV gun is a shooter.
