July Match Report
This past Mid-Range match was fantastic. Many of the competitor scores were only separated by a couple of points. Despite the July heat, 14 shooters turned out to compete, including two Palma shooters. There were some glitches that delayed the opening shots, but the match still ended in record time slightly after noon. Thank you to all the shooters who attended the match in the scorching Charleston heat. Nonetheless, the skill of the shooters shined through as some terrific scores were laid down in a varying mirage.
The top three shooters in F-Open were:
First: Robert Clark with a score of 590 22X
Second: Anthony Isner with a score of 590 16X
Third: Greg Chapa with a score of 578 14X
The top three shooters in F-T/R were:
First: Robert Herstine with a score of 586 16X
Second: Charlie Cheatham with a score of 585 24X
Third: Kevin Baker with a score of 583 18X
