Dear LVSA Members and Friends:
Attendance was down for today’s .22LR 50yd Bench Rest match. The heat (90 degF at match time) and the [blank blank] wind (good thing this is a family friendly report) were definitely to blame. I think I’m going to have to rethink Precision Shooting Superstar Tony Boyer’s statement “The wind is my friend.”
Twenty-six matches were logged, only one (a brave soul) with irons, and 25 with scopes.
A steady wind is relatively easy to deal with, especially with wind flags and velocimeters. A wind varying in intensity but constant in direction presents more of a challenge depending on how often and how suddenly the intensity changes. Today’s wind varied in both direction (head wind, tail wind, up canyon, and down canyon) and intensity (roaring to mild, but tending to roaring) and the changes were frequent and quick. Consensus had it that this was as challenging a wind as we’ve had in this series. I tend to agree; a true learning experience.
Remember how I wrote after last week’s great overall performance that “pride goeth before the fall”? This week’s performance proved that to be true: no 400’s, no scores 30 and above, only two 200’s.
Larron and Hezikiah Dolence took their places on the firing line for the first time in several years. It was good to welcome them back. If all goes well we will see them Saturday June 6 at the Mid-Range Challenge. Mark your calendars, all are welcome to compete or to spectate.
As always, many thanks to all helpers and shooters.
The following lists the round 1, round 2, and aggregate scores. Had there been any ties, they would have been listed by the shooters’ last names.
