JULY 8, 2018 - PETITCODIAC - 22 OPEN BR - RESULTS

It was a wonderful warm day in Petitcodiac. The high temperatures and high humidity of the past week was over and now a much drier, seasonable warm summer day lay ahead. There was not a
cloud in the sky and the sun was bright on the targets and flags. As it turned out, most of the wind flags had been placed on the right half of the range and these stayed busy whirling and twirling throught out the entire match. Considering that our winner, with a perfect 
score, was on the first bench where there were no flags at all, maybe the great conglomeration of flags on the right did not help out much.

The wind was certainly very tricky with prevalent left to right winds for most of the relays. What made it difficult was that without warning, the wind would switch from the opposite direction or from anywhere on
the compass. In addition the velocity was hard to read with no wind at times and then sudden gusts of well over 20km/hr at other times.

Congrats for some terrific 
shooting are due to Matt McA. who scored 500/26X.

Today, Volker T. was the match director and head scorer with Dan G. doing the verification. Targets were set and changed by John McC., Guy H., Dan G., Brian P., Chris S., Shelly C. and Mike C. The range officers were Dan G., Darryl k., Bruce B. and Bert deV. We were seriously spoiled by the many treats brought by Barb J., Dave C., Shelly C. and Dan G. and we simply could not finish them all.
We were glad to see a really good turn-out of 21 shooters. It was really nice to see Barb J. and Cecil H. who had suffered a lot of flood damage during the spring flooding of the Maugerville area. They still have much to do to have normalcy in their homes again.

JULY 1, 2018 - MINTO RIMFIRE BR - RESULTS

Hello fellow bench rest enthusiasts.
It was a nice summer day at Minto with full sun and a cool wind to keep us comfortable. The wind did play havoc with some shooters as the scores show. We had 11 shooters turn out for the event today with 4 doing double classes. The wind was weird from the right side of the field and had wind flags spinning and turning vigorously while at times slowing to a stop. Congratulations to Guy H with a 400/17X in the sporter class. Once again we had banana bread and bottled water from Dave C.

The following people made the day another success. Thank you all!

JUNE 24, 2018 - PETITCODIAC CENTERFIRE SHOOT - RESULTS

It was a busy weekend for those who had attended the Smallbore Team shoot in Lake George the previous day, (but we are always up for a good shoot with friends). We
travelled to Petitcodiac this time for the centerfire match.

Conditions were next to perfect with only a little wind from time to time. The temperature remained very nice for shirt-sleeve shooting. There had been a forecast for lots of rain and, aside from a bit of wet 
very early in the day, the rain held off during the entire match.

The match director was Volker T. He was also the scorer and Daniel G. was the score verifier. Targets were set and changed by Tony L., John McC., Mike C., Malcolm McA.
and Bert deV. The ROs were Daniel G., Darryl K., and Bert deV. The treats came from Tony L. who brought Shelly's squares and Daniel G. who brought Timbits. The photographer was Darryl K. Thank you all for helping to make this a very enjoyable shoot.

The conditions were such that some very good scores were recorded. Congratulations to John McC. who shot a 300/23X; Daniel G. who shot a 300/17X and to Volker T. who shot a 300/15X.

JUNE 23, 2018 - LAKE GEORGE - SMALLBORE TEAM SHOOT - RESULTS

The annual 22Rimfire 100yd Team Shoot was held last Saturday at the Lake George Ranges. Shooters from Minto and Petitcodiac thank the Lake George Gun Club for hosting this event with a big "Thank you" to Bruce B. for organizing this match. All present had a very good time.
The weather was very good for this shoot. Temperatures hovered around 23C. The winds were generally mild at 
12km/hr with occasional gusts to 20km/hr. Sometimes there was a complete lull in the wind and shooters took full advantage of these opportunities.

Bruce B. was the match director and did an excellent job of running the match. John 
M. was the head chef and prepared a wonderful lunch. Volker T. was the scorer with Dave C. verifying the scores and stats. Many thanks to those who helped out by serving as Range Officers and target changers.

Although shooting smallbore at 100yds is difficult, especially in the wind, some very good scores were shot today. Congratulations to John M. who shot the high score of 388/15X today, Volker T. who shot the second highest score of 387/17X, and to Guy H. who shot the third highest score of 387/15X
Lake George and Minto shooters congratulate the team from Petitcodiac for their win today. Team Petitcodiac scored 1519/40X. Second came Team Minto with 1506/50X and third came Team Lake George with 1489/37X.
