September 20th, 2020 3X1000 Yard Prone Match

The day was cool and little hazy due to smoke.  The match started with no wind, and everyone got one target in before the wind came up.  Once the wind was up, it was difficult to keep them centered.  If you are coming to a match, please try to bring a tablet with an internet […]

A comfortable temperature when shooting, smoky and calm for the match.  The flags were hanging straight down for most of the match.  It appeared to be clear but there was so much smoke when looking up it was hard to tell.  There was some mirage, but again, it was too smoky to really tell what […]

It was clear with a little mirage and no wind for the first target.  Light wind and a little more wind and mirage for the second and then things changed for the last target.  The wind wasn’t much but quick velocity and angle changes that resulted with shots way off call. F Open 200-20X Possible […]

It looked like we could sneak in match before the winds came up, but it was not to be.  At best we got one target shot before the wind started to really come up.  It was manageable for the first target, and kept increasing for the next two targets.  The wind started at about 5 […]

A perfect day for shooting, cool enough that a coat almost wasn’t needed and no wind to very little wind.  Every one shot well and the only problem was vertical.  Most held the ten ring horizontally but the unexplained vertical cause dropped points.  This was the last 1000 yd. match of the year.  There may […]

The day started out with a very light wind and some mirage.  The temperature was ok since shooting was done under the cover.  For the relatively easy conditions, there was a lot of problems with shots either dropping out or flying high for no apparent reason.  The last targets of the day had to deal […]

Hot.  Stayed hot for the match with some light winds on the last target of the day.  Mirage was ok for the first targets but got a little heavier making holds on the target open to interpretation.    Electronic targets were used again which sped the match up.  One has to make sure the right […]

Weather was hot with very light winds at times and light to medium mirage.  Watching the mirage resulted in ok vertical but the left and right were harder to figure out.  Electronic targets were used for the match and everyone was for their continued use.  If you are planning to come to a match, try […]
