August 2019 ASC FT Match Results
FT Match Report Arlington Sportsmans Club 08/24/2019
The August Field Target match was hot as expected in Texas during the summer, but that didn’t seem to affect attendance at the match this month. 18 shooters including 3 from Oklahoma showed up to take on 9 lanes on the course in our wooded 3D archery course. The match this time was 54 shots with an average Troyer of 33.6, SD 5.67, Avg Dist 32.4 yds, and Avg KZ 1.06”. Saturday dawned warm and calm in the low 80’s, and reached 90F by the time the match ended, and very light winds.
Overall, the match ran exceptionally well with no cold lines or malfunctioning targets, although I did hear some shooters voice disbelief at some of the shots between trees that I setup on Friday. Honestly, I am just trying to be a good match director and spice up the course! 😉 Thanks to everyone who joined us at the match, helped run the strings in the morning, and also helped take down the course afterwards.
At the end of the match, we turned in our score cards and tallied the scores. Paul Walker turned in the match high score and 1stplace in Hunter PCP with 42/54, while Kevin Enizan finished 2ndin Hunter PCP and Dave Cole from Oklahoma finished 3rd. Paul Bracaglia finished 1stin Hunter Piston with 30/54. View the full list of all competitors’ scores and equipment below.
For all of you that couldn’t make it out, you missed another great match with a bunch of great guys including some out-of-towners. If you’d like us to make any changes that would allow you or encourage you to attend, please let me know as recommendations are always welcome. We will have our next match the 4thSaturday in September (28th), but first be sure to attend the Republic of Texas Grand Prix match on September 14th& 15that Pecan Plantation Archery & Airgun Club in Granbury.
See you at the next match,

Thank you for the report and pictures. We don't do a great job with pictures for our match reports but if you do take pictures it is interesting to see the course, the targets and their placement. It would also be nice to see an equipment list as well as all scores. We typically run our matches at around 28 Troyer with 60 shots total but everyone should run what they prefer. The current trend seems to be to make the courses more difficult.
Again, I do appreciate seeing these reports, just providing a little feed back. It's great to see what other clubs are doing with their matches.
