Today was the much awaited final 22BR shoot in Petitcodiac - the Martin F. Topf Rimfire Championship. We had spent the whole year qualifying for this championship and here it
was at last with perfect conditions.

The weather certainly co-operated with 20C in the afternoon, overcast skies and little or no wind at all. The shooting gods were definitely on our side.
Today, Volker T. was the Match Director and the head scorer. Dan G. did the score and stats verification. The Range Officers were Dan G., Darryl K. and John McC. Target changers were Dan G., John McC., Shelly C. and George M. The wonderful treats were brought by Shelly C., Barb J. and Dan G. Thanks to all.

Halfway through the match we went to the clubhouse to have a lunch provided by John C. and the Petitcodiac Sportsman's Club. As usual this was a very enjoyable time and increased our camaraderie while decreasing our tension regarding the match.

Speaking of the shooting, this was truly a very high level of shoot with the top 5 shooters all attaining a perfect 500. There was a lot of celebration after the scores were in as Barb J. shot a 500/29X; Dan G. shot a 500/28X; Darryl shot a 500/27X; Dave C. shot a 500/24X and Shelly C. shot a 500/22X. This was Barb's first win in a championship and Dave's first 500 score (he joins the ever expanding PSC 500 club). Congratulations to all winners!!
