Remarks: 

This was our third match of 2020. COVID-19 guidelines are still in effect. People had worn face masks and kept 6 feet separation. Hand sanitizer was available for people to use. 

Match day was sunny warm and windy. The wind switched directions and intensity many times. 

The match high was shared by Chas and Paul. Both shooting an impressive 51 out of 60 in these windy conditions. 

Initially, I had more reducers (½" & 1” KZs) planned for the match but the windy conditions made me think otherwise. The wind made the course difficult enough as the scores show. 

We had first time attendees to the venue but were veteran shooters in field target – Paul Cray and Bartek Dziedzic. I hope they enjoyed the match and return for more matches in the future. 

After the match, Brian, John, Paul, Matt B, Matt S, Ron, Mike and I cleaned up the course and were done before 1 pm. I thank Ron for lending his property for the match and the shooters who attended and helped clean up afterwards. 
 

Next FT match: 2020 August 1 Saturday at Rockville Fish & Game (Vernon, CT)

Hi Leo!

Thanks for putting on a great match! A real World's course! And very challenging standing and knelling lanes...I only wish the Nats would do the same! I'll be back! (Imagine that said in the voice of Arnold Schwarzenegger)

It certainly was a difficult course yesterday with the wind. Thanks for removing those reducers Leo. It was good to see you Paul. I don't often have a wftf pcp shooter on the course for comparison. Who shoots springers anyways?
