Match Results


May 23

With clear skies, Temps in the high 70s to low 80's, and sporadic winds occurring throughout the match affecting shots, it was a good match. Ron, Range Master, set the 12 lane 48 shot course. And again, he was not feeling generous with the forced positions (standing and knelling) and set 1 inch targets on both lanes.  We had 19 shooters in five classes, with two new shooters, Tamara Santana and Pet Natividad, in their first air rifle match. Sharing a rifle, they shot a 9 and 13, respectively, which is not bad for their first match and, I am sure, will improve with each match. Louis Bigelow was the lone springer today.  Larry Durham joined us after being away for sometime. Good to see you at the match.  Hector, being the lone shooter in WFTF, was top overall shooter with his Steyr and shot a near perfect match with a 47. Missing, by his account, a "gimme". That's what happens when you lose concentration, as Hector admitted. But that's Field Target--you need a steady aim, concentration at all times, and it helps to be able to shoot in the wind. Great shooting Hector. Shooting in Open PCP, Kelly shot a 43 with his Daystate CR-X-ST#2, was first in Open and took second as overall shooter. Two shooters, Hector and Rob, cleaned the standing lane, although Rob practically cut the distance in half with that long barrel; and Sarah was 50%. Knelling lane was cleaned by Hector and Kelly.  With two women shooting today, top woman shooter was Sarah with a 22 in Hunter PCP. Nice shooting. Mike Stern finally broke through his 23 point barrier with a 24. There is no stopping him now. And, although Pat Hall continues to enjoy shooting his Crossman pump action air rifle, we will eventually break him into buying a pcp or springer. As always, shooting was challenging and loads of fun.  See you all next time on the range.

May 8th

With temperatures in low to mid 70s and an occasional slight breeze, it was a good day for another match.  We had ten total shooters, with Alan Otsuka helping out a new shooter on the course so they did not officially participate in the match. Art also showed but did not participate as he stayed at the sight-in range and assisted new shooters/members.  We had three shooters in the Open PCP class, with the rest of the shooters spread out over the other classes and John being the only springer. Robert Wild joined us after a hiatus (welcome back). Ron set the 12 lane, 48 shot course. Al led all shooters with a 46 in Hunter PCP, with Kelly second with a 42 shooting Open PCP.

April 25

Nice day for a match. Cloudy skies with temperatures around 55. Occasional slight winds, and looks like we finished before the stronger winds started. We had 9 shooters today, with Tim McMurray (Mac1 Airguns) able to get away from his shop, along with Louis Bigelow who has been away for awhile. Ron Jobbs, our Range Master, decided to join the crowds in the Sierras for the trout opener. Hope he caught his limit. That left target set-up to me. Hope it was a fun and challenging course for all.

Al led all shooters with a 43 in Hunter PCP. Kelly, shooting his springer, was second with a 40.
