 Well, it was the hottest day of the Benchrest shoot circuit to date - 35C in the afternoon and almost 30C inside the shooting hut where the benches are. The humidity was very high and we were harassed by a band of "Bandito Deer Flies"!
But . . . the wind gods were kinds to us for a change with only occasional light breezes supplemented with short bursts of quiet air flow.

AND the scores were close! 

It was good to see some new shooters who shot sporting rifles with lower power scopes which made it challenging for them to compete against higher power scopes. They enjoyed themselves and did well - these targets are a challenge for any shooter - the bulls are so small.
Sweets almost melted in the heat - thanks to Shelly and Carl for bringing them. What would a BR shoot be with them eh? Thanks also to Grant Jr. for making the Tim's Coffee run for us.

Volker T. was the Match Director and scorer and everyone pitched into help with duties of the RO, changing the targets, registering shooters and other tasks - many thanks to all.

On July 13, we continued the annual rivalry among the three clubs: Petitcodiac, Minto and Lake George. This year the competition was between the first two clubs(Petit and Minto) who sent shooters to the match. It is clear that everyone had a terrific time together. It was an excellent day to be on the range even though it was very hot and the wind was cruel to all the shooters.
 As can be seen in the picture, Barbara J. was the cook and had brought her famous deserts while Terry McN. was the supervising chef. All accounts report that the food was great - succulent hot dogs and hamburgs.

Wayne K. was the Match Director and scored the targets. Norbert S., with help from Carl J. and Darryl K., ran the range safely and efficiently. Terry McN., Dave C. and Dan G. changed the targets - hot work!!

 All were happy to see Martin come out to shoot.
Team Minto was the winner of this match by 5 points.
Minto = 1791/25X
Petitcodiac = 1786/31X
Individual winners were :
Dan G., Volker T. & Matt McA.
