The forecast was for a fabulous day; perhaps one of those 'Top 10' when the conditions would be near perfect. Most would agree it was very close to that. Beautiful blue sky, low humidity, warming sun and an occasional soft breeze. About as good as it gets for Field Target shooting in Southwest Florida.
A strong turn-out of 13 competitors included two Spring-Piston shooters; both with some fine scores in their respective divisions. A couple folks came by to watch and learn about airgun sports
Always good to see new shooters showing interest.
With the near perfect conditions today's Top Gun was also near perfect. Veteran airgunner Gary P. finished with a score of 47 out of possible 48 points. Well Done !
Thanks to all who pitched in with the set-up and course take down. A shout-out to John L. and assistants for running a safe and enjoyable match.
A special Shout-Out to Adelle, today's on-site photographer (and McGee's grand-daughter.) Thank you for the photographs.
