March 13, 2016 - MINTO 22BR - RESULTS

Today, as I'm typing this, is it a wonderful sun-shiny day with +5C and absolutely no wind. 

Yesterday it was quite a different story. Yes - it was slightly above 0, and yes - we had a little sunshine peeking out, especially later on in the
match, but the wind was pure poison!! 
We knew we were in for some wind and during the sighting-in period we got a taste of what it would be like with point of impact at least 2 inches on either side of the point of aim. But during the match it became very clear what a 50 to 60 km/hr gust could do to a 22 bullet. 
More often than we cared to own up to, the point of impact was on the next bull - with serious consequences to our scores. Let's face it - none of us shot very well today - (but we all shot extremely well given the extreme and unpredictable wind conditions - at least that's what we told ourselves). 

We used every skill we had to try to read and compensate for the wind. When we thought we had it somewhat figured out, our gloves, ammo boxes and scope caps would fly off the benches and  we were served a huge helping of humble pie when we looked at the target which now had a neat little hole in the 5 or 6 ring! The only good thing is that we were in this boat together and all of us experienced the same helping of dessert.

There was a bit of a controversy about the scoring system that was used but this will be sorted out for the next match.

Today the Match Director and scorer was Matt McA. while Don M. did the score verification. Targets were set and changed by Terry McN., Darryl K., Dave C., John McC., Gerard D., John M. and Barb J. The RO duties were shared by Darryl K., Terry McN., Bert deV., John McC., Barb J. and Dave C. Thanks to all for pitching in and helping out and thanks also to Barb J. for bringing the wonderful treats.
