I want to thank everyone for showing up today. The weather was just great, except for a “little wind”. Congratulations to Jimmie Fordham for being match winner with irons, shooting a very good score of 1187-61X, and for Ritchey Royal for shooting a 1168-56X in FTR.
I hope to see you all at the Alabama State Prone Championship 26 Oct at Magic City Gun Club. Bulletin attached. The next B&G Smallbore Prone match is Saturday 16 Nov, the third Saturday of the month, not the second, please note! I cannot promise cool, dry weather, but I can hope!
The day started off nice, but things did get hot enough that Skipper left after 120 rounds. And we all were in the shade. When I left the range, the temperature was 87 F.
I am the match winner with a 1590-95X. Tom Jones shot a good score with his Unertl topped M52D, was match winner for Match 1. Good shooting Tom!
Ritchey Royal set a range record in F Class and shot an amazing two stages with 200’s. It is very unusual, if not rare, to clean the F Class target. I have not seen it done before, and Royal did it at 50 yards, and 100 yards. Congratulations to Ritchey!
Next Match will be 7 Oct 2017, the first Saturday of the month. This will be the annual Retro Rifle match, bring something that is not an Anschutz, most likely sold by the CMP, Tom Jones is well placed to win the match with his M52D. F class shooters will be welcome. Hopefully, October will be nice, cool, and dry. See you then.
