Desoto Airgunners Match Results - Feb. 15, 2009

Billed as our Winter Warm-Up Match, this 60-shot field target competition found temperatures hovering in the low 80's by noon; a beautiful sunny day in southwest Florida. Several new shooters are becoming regulars, and we're always thrilled when the sport grows. Mark and Charlie -- two newcomers up from Naples FL -- shot well in Hunter Class. Bill Tait (and his non-shooting wife) drove in from the Daytona area for this one day club shoot. Now that's enthusiasm folks. Welcome to the sport !

The course was not easy yet scores were excellent: 60 shots at a total of 20 targets. The course included a kneeling target and a designated off-hander too. There was a sneaky 3/8 incher on lane one and other challenging set-ups making the day interesting for all. Freddy Poole shot an amazing 53 with his TX200, tying the score of the top precharge shooter Dick Otten. Impressive!
