April Long Range Match Report

Saturday was a perfect day for a Long Range Match at 800 yards. The match finished with 22 shooters for the day.  A difficult mirage made the Long course a challenge and a light breeze did not help the shooting for the day.  Nonetheless, the event provided an exciting day of shooting.

The top three shooters in F-Open were:

First: Bob Clark with a 584 16X

Second: John Ridgeway with a 584 15X

Third: Layne Howard with a 582 15X

The top three shooters in F-T/R were:

First: Peter Nistad with a 588 21X

Second: Tom Finley with a 586 20X

Third: Greg Chapa with a 570 8X
