Desota Airgunners Match Results Feb 2010

Our Winter Tune Up Match was held on one of the best days (weather-wise) of this Winter. Southwest FL has had lots of rain and many below normal ( downright cold) days this season. With a warm bright sun and blue skies, a dozen shooters came out for our first match of the 2010 season Joining the "usual suspects" of local shooters were Doug and Vipha Miller from California. We also had the pleasure of welcoming three new shooters to our club match. It's always great to get new players and we hope to see more on a regular basis.

As usual, the course was breezy and the dog leg set-up made doping the breeze tricky. The match consisted of 8 lanes total; 7 lanes with three targets each and lane 8 with two offhand targets, making 46 points the score for a clean course. Jim Baumann came out of hibernation and shot a 43 to take precharge honors while Freddy Poole bested in Piston with a 41. Excellent scores for the conditions. Doug and Vipha shot with borrowed guns and both shot a score of 41. At least there will be harmony for that competitive couple as they fly back to California.
