It is a great pleasure to write this post! We finally had our first match of 2020!
With the recent openings we were able to get together at the Grenville Fish & Game Club. A big thank you to the club for moving forward and allowing us to hold matches!
We had an excellent turn out with 16 shooters – some from the local area and others from as far away as Kitchener and Port Colborne. Thank you all for making the journey and some rather early starts!
It was a great day for shooting with everyone arriving by 9:00 AM and on the sight-in range shortly afterwards. We started out with very humid and windy conditions on the sight-in line.
The shooters meeting started at 10:15 AM and we were on the course by 11:00 AM.
Being typical Grenville, as soon as we went in the forest the wind vanished and the sun cast lots of shadows. Just as we got to the last few lanes, the sky opened, and we got about 30 minutes of rain. The cedars gave some protection though we all were wiping down and drying our guns when we got back. The rain was welcome as it chased the mosquitoes away, yes there were a few!
The club set a challenging opening course with a everyone gaining an appreciation for the “F”… ing lane. It was set as a kneeler – 16 yards and 3/8 kill zone followed up with two 38 yarders with full kill zones… one at the base of a large oak and the other about 20 feet up! Yeah, it was a challenge!
We were cleaned up and awards presented by 2:30 PM and everyone on the road by 3:00 PM.
The biggest thank you to everyone that came out! We were excited to host you all and look forward the next get together for the Canadian Nationals on September 18-20th. Stay tuned to your email and the forums for more information. Also, for those down Hamilton way, there will be a match at HAHA on August 29th.
