June Match Report

June Long-Range Match Report

This past Long-Range match was fantastic. Thank you to all the shooters who attended the match. The match had a solid turnout and ended with 16 shooters, including one Palma shooter. The sun was out and the wind was low, however, the temperate remained relatively comfortable for a summer day in South Carolina…at first. As the sun climbed higher, the temperate also climbed, which brought out the common foe of summer shooting, the dreaded mirage. The match ended with a harsh and changing mirage. Nonetheless, the shooters kept composure and earned some great scores.

 

The top three shooters in F-Open were:

First: Templeton Fletcher with a score of 579 14X

Second: Henry Neale with a score of 572 21X

Third: Layne Howard with a score of 570 7X

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

First: Kevin Baker with a score of 593 26X

Second: Wayne Cross with a score of 588 292

Third: Robert Herstine with a score of 578 14X

May Match Report

May Match Report

 

Saturday was an almost perfect day for a Mid-Range Match at 600 yards. The match finished with 22 shooters. Overcast skies kept the heat away and the mirage to a minimum. Despite a light on and off rain, target visibility remained good and the rain seemed to have a limited effect on shooting. Finally, the event provided an exciting day of shooting with several new club records being set.
