March Match Report

What a match, weather was less than beautiful, at least it was dry.  Temperature never got above 35 so it was quite blustery with the winds about 15 mph and gusting on upwards.

There was a lot of cold weather gear on the line some of us could hardly move.  If all goes well we may be in shirt sleeves in April.  The turkey and ram setters didn’t have to work that hard as the score sheet indicates.  For some reason Rams where just plain hard to hit due to the gusting wind.  Hope to see the missing gun show goers in April.  This will be my last results report as Tim will be at the helm in April.  As always if there is anything we can do to improve the match let us know.  Thanks to Bob Kopper and Dean Gunby for setting the range up on Friday.  And a thank you to those who pitched in to put everything away at the end of the match.  I hope the Shamrock didn’t give anyone fits, Thought it would be appropriate  for St Patricks Day.
