Only 4 hardy souls showed up for the match, but we had a great time regardless. We shot a 13 lane match that might have been the result of Benny miscounting his usual 9 lane section (Before Paul adds his 3 “special” long range lanes). I’m just glad I didn’t make that mistake, or I would never have heard the end of it.
The wind was tricky, circling around the course, trying to trip up Paul and his 12 ft lb rifle, but no so luck, he shot a sparkling 50/52. Benny tallied 42 kills before leaving the last lane for what I understand was a doctor’s appointment, probably for a goiter, a bunion or some other kind of elderly person’s ailment, but I digress.
That left Bill Liebke and me to battle it out in hunter class. We each tallied a 42/52 and settled the matter with a 50yd shoot off.
Looking forward to our next meeting on 8/11 with a big showing. See you then.
