February 28, 2021 3X1000 Yard Prone Match

It was cold (16°F) and sunny with no wind to start the day.  The no wind condition lasted one target and then the wind came up and the felt temperature remained the same due to wind chill.  There was mystery vertical on the first target and the wind affected the scores for the rest of […]

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 […]

August 25, 2019 3X1000 Yard Prone Match

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 […]
