April in New Brunswick and the weather was quite nice at about 6C above. "Nice", at least by comparison to the conditions we have been shooting in during the last few shoots. 
It was dry - no rain and no snow. It started out a bit cloudy but this broke up and most of the match was shot in sunny conditions. It was in Minto .  .  .  you guessed it .  .  .  it was windy. Very windy at times with winds easily topping 30km/hr in gusts. It was very, very tricky and waiting for your wind to return was a long wait. So most of us shot with a good deal of hold-over. This worked for quite a few shots but it cost on others. The wind switched to and from every direction on the range and it did so quickly that, in the time it took to look from the flags through the scope, there was a good chance that the wind had changed. Our scores bear witness to the difficult conditions. Only one shooter managed to shoot a clean target - congratulations to Gerard D. on this feat.

Today, John McC. was the Match Director who did a bang-up-job on organizing the match and collecting the funds. Head scorer was Don M. with Bill H., John McC. and Wayne K. doing the verifying. The targets were changed by Dave C., Cecil H. and George M. The ROs were Bruce B., BarbJ., John McC., Wayne K. and Matt McA. All the wonderful breads and treats were prepared and brought by Barb J. Pictures were taken by Bert deV. and Barb J. Thanks to all for your help today.

Once all the shooting was done and the scores tallied, it was time for the raffle draw. President Dave C. drew the winning card for the brick of CenterX donated by Hirsch Precision (thanks again Peter and all those who supported the Minto Gun Club by buying a card). The lucky winner (thanking his lucky stars) was Don M.
