MAY 8, 2022 - PETITCODIAC - CENTERFIRE BR RESULTS

Thanks to Danny G. for sending these results. 
Awesome day today at the Petitcodiac Range with eight shooters participating in the centerfire event.  Wind was a bit twitchy but manageable.  The big issue today was some unrelenting mirage.  Very often you had to give it a best guess as the sight picture would not clear.  Regardless a good time was had by all and some people even shot pretty well.  Bert deV. prevailed with an awesome 300/18X.



Second place was had by Don M., closing with a perfect 100 in his last relay... a strong close Don, well done.  We had a tie for third between Malcolm McA. and Tony L. with Malcolm edging Tony out for the bronze medal with 13/X’s.  ROs today were Malcolm McA. and Bruce B.  Target setters and retrievers were Malcolm McA., Bruce B. and John McC.  Match director and scorer was Dan G. assisted by John McClusky as verifier.  Sweets provided by Shelly C. and Dan G. Thanks to everyone for helping out.

MAY 1, 2022 - MINTO - ANNUAL RIMFIRE TEAM SHOOT - RESULTS

Thanks to Dale H. for sending these results.
The annual  Rimfire Team Shoot was hosted in 2022 by the Minto Gun Club. It appears that everyone had a good time in the spirit of healthy competition today. As is usual for a get-together and shoot in New Brunswick, the food was a major draw and the food prepared by David C., president of the Minto Gun Club, and his wife Susan excelled again!,(delicious fish chowder, sandwiches and sides). Many thanks to David and Susan as well as to Barb J. who once again provided everyone with her famous treats.(fabulous banana bread, date squares, cookies and more).

The weather in New Brunswick for the past couple of weeks has been dismal with rain and cold temperatures and even this morning travellers reported fresh snow on the sides of the road. It started out overcast with a cool 2C and remained overcast with a light drizzle most of the day. The temperature slowly warmed to the 10c range by mid- afternoon. Winds were tricky and brisk to say the least.

APRIL 24, 2022 - PETITCODIAC - RIMFIRE BR - RESULTS

Thanks to Volker T. for sending these results:
We had a good turnout for the match today with 19 shooters. Temps were 0 to 10C, but the wood and gas stoves were running. Wind was quite breezy running at 10 to 20km gusts. It was challenging as the first relay discovered. A few verbal remarks could be heard. And there was enough wind to go around for all of the relays.  Two shooters managed to get 250 scores on individual targets; no small feat today, but no 500’s. Those who managed to hit the high 490’s deserved it.
Thanks to all for setting targets, the great sweets, scoring, and wood for the stove.

MARCH 27, 2022 - PETITCODIAC RF BENCHREST - RESULTS

 


Thanks to Volker T. for sending this:

"A heavy wet snow was falling in the early hours with some areas in the south accumulating up to 4 inches. And the change was over to rain. Some shooters spotted a semi tractor trailer that had slid  off into the  highway median. Nevertheless, 16 brave shooters arrived for some camaraderie and friendly competition.

It was nice to have Wayne L. attend for the  first time and returning member Steve C. As well it was good to have Darryl K. shooting for the first time since his surgery. Glad to see you all. 

Temperatures ran from 0 to 5C for the  day  with light winds of 5 to 12km gusts from the SE. Manageable, but switching conditions that caught some shooters. There were a lot of Annie’s on the bench such as Brian P.’s new red 1710ACC Comp., and a couple 1761’s. Grant H. was breaking in his new Annie BR stock as well. Always nice to see new gear on the range.  So, three perfect targets were shot with others running close behind. 

Thanks to all for their help in running the match and for the  Timbits  which quickly disappeared alongside the  warm wood stove. Scoresheet following.

Your Director, Volker T."

"Only one very hardy shooter showed up today!"

Thanks to Danny G. for sending this:
"As predicted I won the gold medal today in spite of a late start and horrendous conditions( really not so bad except for losing sight of the target from time to time ) regardless I powered through and emerged victorious!  Why only two targets you ask.....well, that’s all it took.  Guys , you missed a great day....I will admit, the roads were much better on the way home."

Thanks to Volker T. for sending this:

MARCH 6, 2022 - MINTO - CENTERFIRE BR - RESULTS

Thanks to Wayne K. for sending this report.
Due to weather there were only 3 die-hards that showed up to the center fire shoot last Sunday so we decided not to bother. It started to snow around 0800 and it was pretty heavy up until 1100 hrs when we left.

FEBRUARY 27, 2022 - PETITCODIAC - RIMFIRE BR - RESULTS

Thanks to Volker T. for this write-up.

Today was our first shoot of the year for PSC. Eleven shooters came out after three months rest since our last shoot. 

The weather was mostly overcast with some sunshine. Average temperature was -8C, with mean  wind speed of 20km plus some gusting, which caught everyone at some point.  Even with
4 windflags and a rogue ribbon. 

It was overall a good shoot and scores were close; one or two shots had a great impact on positioning. There were only 2 points separating the top 6 shooters. Good shooting, guys!
Two shooters had equipment difficulties. Thanks to Dan G. for the snow removal preparation, target frame repair, and the sweets. Charles McQ. had the stove fired up as shooters arrived.
Chris S.and Grant ran the frame and target setting. Thanks, guys.
The RO's were Chris S. and Dan G. Scorer was Volker T. and the verifier was Dan G.
