We successfully held the June FT match at HAHA on Saturday, June 11th with 16 shooters!
First thank you to:
- Hamilton Angling and Hunting Association for letting us use the Rifle Range for the match!
- Those that showed up early to set up for the match! A shout out to the earliest early birds – Tom K, Rob G, Bob W, Richard (who had to leave before the shoot!!!).
- To everyone that stayed after the match to cleanup, which was everyone!
- And finally, to everyone that came out to shoot. It was great to see you all!
It was an outstanding day to be at the range – sunny, modest breeze and warm! We had the range setup just after 9:00 AM and on the site in lines by 9:15 AM. Jeff H stepped in as Match Director and had the shooters meeting over and down with by 10:15.
We mixed up the targets a bit for this match with several extra long targets to test everyone’s range charts. The longest one stretched out to 59 yards and left a few of us to update our click charts / range markings. The added distance also put the targets in a different wind pattern on the range. Suffice it to say there were a few comments! At the end of the day everyone day had a good time and stepped up to the challenge.
Shout outs to the class winners:
Hunter PCP: Tom K for squeaking out a 1 point lead – 101/120
Hunter Piston: Gary C for braving the course with his scoped FWB300 – 42/120
Open PCP: Denis E, Lanny H, Len J in three way tie – 52/60
WFTF PCP: James L – 52/60
WFTF Piston: Bob W – 40/60
A unique outcome this time around – we had a tie in Hunter PCP and a three-way tie in Open PCP. We opted out of a shoot off, next time! Awesome to see such close competition – well done everyone.
That wraps the June match report. Below are the detailed results.
Thank you one last time to everyone that helped out and the HAHA club. We can’t do these matches without you!!
See you at Port next weekend and back and HAHA in July
