Hope you can join us.
Apologies for the late report of last weekend's match, the report was delinquent even before the sad news of Pat Obrien's passing but that made it even worse. Firemarshall was a true ambassador for our sport and exemplified the spirit and sportsmanship that attracted me to this game. He will be missed greatly.
The best turnout of the year was greeted with nice conditions Saturday. Thunderstorms were near but steered clear of us for the duration of the shoot. Summer has definitely arrived and those of us (me) wearing the portable sweat lodge (shooting coat) were well drenched by the end of the match as the heat index pushed into the mid 90's. Winds were mild but tricky enough to cause some consternation on the long ones.
For the first time in more than a year some of us shot in pairs instead of solo. What a refreshing change that was...
It was a tight battle for Open class with Bill Ellis squeaking out the win. I shot with Bill and if not for a couple of lanes he would have been up there for the overall win. Brent set a new personal best in Hunter. I took home the WFTF title with Slade mumbling something about cleaning the barrel... (Pat would've loved that one, LOL)
