Waterloo Field Target Club

Results for August 2, 2008

 

            After thunderstorms through the night, Chris, Luc, Braden and I headed to Waterloo under clearing skies on Saturday morning.  It was the start of a great FT day.  Nineteen shooters arrived, ready to knock down some targets and meet some new friends.  A fair number had not shot a match at the Waterloo Club and it was good to see them there.

            After sight in, George matched us up in squads; the squads matched up with a lane and then came the “Hot Line”.  Through the first half of the match, it was sunny and fairly breezy.  As most groups finished their first 30 shots, a dark cloud moved over and dropped some rain.  It was very polite rain however, as it only lasted while we were on our break and then cleared up again for the rest of the match.

            As has been the case this season, there was a very good turnout in the Hunter Division and some fine shooting.  David shot his first match and did very well.  Luc used his new gun for the first time and Braden had a second outing with his gun.  Luc had a personal best and Braden performed well with his open sights that will soon be upgraded to a scope.  Stan did a little tweak, during the match, that cost him a fair number of points, but he got his rig shooting well again.  Luke R. and Rob also shot personal best scores.  Dennis, who shot the match offhand, had a personal best score and placed second in the Division.  The duo of Kel and Tom Jackson both had great days, with Kel placing third and Tom took first.

            In the Piston Division, George broke out the JW again and shot a very impressive 51/60 to win the Division.  Len had his rig really dialed and shot a 48 to take second, followed by Bill with 43 to take third. 

            In the open section of the PCP Division, Don has continued to shoot well and placed first.  Bert had an excellent match, taking second, followed by Hans in third.

            With four shooters in Limited PCP, it was the highest turnout since the limited pcp subclass was created.  It was great to see Doug out shooting with us again and I hope he makes a habit of it.  Ted was chasing his point of impact for much of the match and still managed to score very well.  I finally seem to have a steady position figured out and was close enough to Chris to at least make him look over his shoulder.  Chris did something we see very seldom in matches and shot a perfect 60/60.

            Congratulations to all participants.  On a day like Saturday, I am thoroughly convinced that we all won.

            Thanks to George, Hans and Bert for hosting a great match and to all the guys that set up some interesting lanes.  For a match where the date was changed late and taking place on a holiday weekend, things could not have gone much better.

            We look forward to seeing everyone again on September 6th in Port Colborne for the next match.  For a fair number, it will be a good tune up before heading down to Kentucky for the US nationals.  We will keep the overall difficulty reasonable, but there will be some targets that will cause some “concern”.  See you there.
