NOVEMBER 20, 2022 - PETTICODIAC CENTERFIRE FUN SHOOT - RESULTS

Thanks to Volker T. for the results and pics.

Today it was truly a fun shoot at PSC. There probably would have been a larger attendance, but the mix of snow and rain in the early morning hampered travel. Winter is quickly upon us. Despite this, a handful of dedicated shooters made it. The weather was fine as the match started and stayed good and shooting progressed quickly. So did the sweets beside the wood stove. The shoot was enjoyed by all.
Thanks to Dan for directing the match and choosing some interesting targets. 
And to Darryl for the photography and Volker for the sweets, scoring, and RO'ing.

OCTOBER 30, 2022 – MINTO – RIMFIRE FUN SHOOT - RESULTS

Thanks to Dale H. for these results and pictures.

Beautiful sunny morning, cloudless sky and temperatures rose from 6c – 14c by lunch time. Winds were light at 2-8 km/h, NW for the “A” targets, and switching between NW-SW for the “B” targets. Eleven shooters participated, 6 shooting BR and 5 shooting Sporter. Regular benchrest targets were used for the Open Class. Regular sporter targets were used for the Sporter Class, with a twist - to record an X, the shot could not touch the inner red 10 ring, (the X shot had to be fully in the white area). Congratulations to Wayne LeB. for scoring the only X in Sporter Class. With the small group our shoot was completed by 1pm and everyone was on their way home. A good time was had by all.

OCTOBER 23, 2022 - MINTO - ANNUAL CENTERFIRE CHAMPIONSHIP - RESULTS

The Annual Minto Centerfire Benchrest Championship was held on a day that started out very foggy and at 5C early in the morning. The forecast was for a pleasant day and this came true when the fog lifted revealing steady sunshine and temperatures that rose to 18C.
The wind was gusty, mostly from the left but, as is typical for Minto, it came from all directions and sometimes was not evident at all. It was tricky to say the least and many shooters were surprised to see that the point of impact was quite different for that intended. Holding off was the rule of the day and careful attention to both the direction and velocity of the wind saved many potential tens.

There are many people to thank when you have a shoot as successful as this one. Wayne K. was the match director and head scorer with John McC. providing the verification. David C., whose vehicle broke down half way to the range, (thanks - squirrels who feasted on the truck's wiring), and who was rescued by Guy H., provided the coffee, drinks and lunch. David C., Darryl K. and Conrad L. were the ROs for the match and many people helped to change the targets. Darryl K. and Wayne K. took the pics. Thanks to everyone for your much appreciated help!
