A St. Valentines Day Field Target Event.
Special Thanks and ShoutOut to John L for taking on the role of Match Director today. Several shooters expressed they felt John did a great job too.
With a turn-out of 10 shooters, it was good to see a few newer shooters and some old faces arriving for today's event.
Here's how the Match ran - from John's view - "It turned out to ba a beautiful day after some overnight showers. . No rain and seasonally comfortable temperatures. The Great Equalizer.... The wind....... challenged everybody. Periodic strong gusts punctuated mostly calm conditions."
"Not sure who was coming today; We started the day with four people so we set up a four lane course. After we had completed the course six more shooters arrived for a total of ten shooters. We added a fifth lane to accommodate. "
"Lane 4 was designated our forced position lane. We started with two people squads on each lane. Once everybody shot the five lanes, lanes 3,,4 and 5 were then repeated. I have learned it causes a bit of a traffic jam with everybody on three lanes. But it did help stimulate conversations and comradery."
"The forced position lane required everybody to shoot offhand one time through and kneeling the other time through. The half point rule was in effect for those choosing to sit rather than the forced position."
"The end result was everybody shooting an eight lane match course with a kneeling and offhand lane."
The match started around 9:15 and concluded a little after noon. A good safe time was had by all.
