SVFTC gets to holds its first FT match of 2020 .... RESULTS
Thanks to the IONE RANGE we hold our semi monthly matches at, they had opened up for limited use just a few weeks prior having us who organize and run matches follow strict protocol with this Covid -19 situation we all are dealing with. Jim C the clubs co-match director worked out all the details on them allowing the SVFTC to hold a limited participation match. With private e-mail correspondence to our core membership we limited our self to 20 RSVP positions .... Ended up at 16
Being this was the clubs FIRST field target match of 2020 where in a typical year would be the Third, figured most would enjoy a longer match so we set up for a 58 shot match. In the mix were 6 shots FORCED position Off Hand and 4 shots as Kneeling. * if you can't kneel you took them off hand.
In order to keep safe social distancing and minimal handling of the gear, a few persons set the bricks and provided targets for the positions, winders and clamps. Others set them, with others taking the winders back to the shooting positions. Were able to establish a good 10 feet between lanes as well. Hand sanitizer provided with EVERYONE coming to the match with a face mask we have met all the requirements to proceed.
Get everyone signed up we run practice for @ 45 min or so while also waiting for the stragglers to show up. Have the shooters meeting and then had everyone take a score card / clipboard and FILL IN there chosen partners info and requested that the score card be kept by each squad member the entire match & tossed into a pile at matches end where we would sort out the results.
* Due to safety Covid protocol no food or drink provided this event asking for a BYOF & D
We ended up with 16 shooters and 58 shots getting the match going by @9:30 there about.
