June 28, 2020 3X1000 Yard Prone Match

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 […]

November 17, 2019 3X1000 Yard Prone Match

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 […]

June 23, 2019 3X1000 Yard Prone Match

Clear skies and light varying winds were present for the entire match.  The light winds meant that that the conditions were unsettled resulting in some shots that were way off what was expected.  The first relays of the day were the best and things went downhill from there.  Even on later targets, looking at the […]

May 26, 2019 3X1000 Yard Prone Match

It was completely overcast and threatening to rain so we held off for an hour and got a small window where the rain stopped and the wind died.  A small practice session was held and we had to quit when it started to rain and blow.

Putting up the flags prior to the match, it looked like weather was going to hold off and go around the range.  It got darker and darker and then started to rain.  Waiting about 40 minutes, the sky lightened up and it became partly cloudy with the generally unreadable, unpredictable spring winds.  Everyone shot it […]
