Hello bench rest shooting enthusiasts!
Reported by John McCluskey

The Petitcodiac Sportsman's Club (PSC) hosted the first Annual Terry F. McNeill Centerfire 
Benchrest Team Shoot in memory of our friend and fellow shooter Terry F. McNeill who passed away recently after a long fight with cancer.

We also used the shoot today as a make up shoot for the PSC regular center fire shoot that had been scheduled for Sunday.

All of us started out in snow covered roads that diminished the closer to the range we came. The day warmed as we shot and the snow had all but disappeared by the time we had completed today’s event. It was nice for a change as the wind was not a big factor today. I would like to thank all the people who came out to support this great event.
In order to make the teams as evenly matched as possible, shooters were divided into three teams. We ended up with 2 teams for PSC and a team representing Minto. We had a lot of fun with great competition all day. In the end PSC team #2 took first place with PSC team #1 a close second followed by team Minto in third spot. It was indeed a close match as the results show.
A meal was supplied by PSC and we thank John C for a job well done once again. Dan G., Shelly C. and Dave C. brought their regular sweets. Thanks everyone! Thanks also to all for pitching in to make this shoot go smoothly.
A few noteworthy individual results - Congratulations to Shelly C. for her 3rd place finish resulting in double medals! Both Dan G. and John McC. shot perfect scores with 300/17X and 300/15X respectively.
A very special thank you to Bruce B. for manufacturing the beautiful trophy for this event in memory of his best friend! He would be very proud of the results of your efforts.
