BCSA (Broome Co. Sportsmens Assoc.,Binghamton, NY) July 13th Match Results
BCSA (Binghamton, NY) July 13th, 2019 Match Report
Our 3rd match of the 2019 season at BCSA (Broome County Sportsmens Assoc. - Binghamton, NY) is complete! We had another fine day for some Field Target.
The day started with my wife and I arriving early and pulling the strings and setting up the sight-in range! Right around 8am, the participants for the day started to arrive and the day of fun in the sun had begun! We ended p with 17 competitors for the day. As usual, My wife Pat and Janet Manktelow handled all the registration duties…………..very greatly appreciated Ladies!
After our sight-in period, and getting a little food in our bellies from the breakfast goodies that Jerry LaRocca brought, we made our way over to the Field Target range to start the match festivities. The layout for the match had 13 of the 30 targets beyond 40 yards (8 of which were beyond 50 yards) with 1 standing and 1 kneeling lane for a difficulty of 33.95T. Temperatures started in the upper 60’s and rose to the low 80’s. The wind was calm for the most part but there were a few times it picked up enough to make people rethink their holds! Brights skies were again plenty………but there were still plenty of dark lanes to make people utter some words under their breath!
The rifle match went off without a hitch……..NO cold lines! We started the match shortly after 9am and ended shortly before noon. Things go smooth and quick with running 2 people per lane. Seems like there ended up being a 3-way tie for first place in Hunter PCP between Tom Wade, Paul Manktelow and Sean McDaniel. I nominated Kevin Kunkle to run the shootoff. He had free reign to chose the target and position it was to be shot. Kevin chose an 18 yard target with a 1” KZ and they were to shoot it standing. All 3 missed on their first attempt. Tom was able to connect on his second try. Paul and Sean were unable to match Tom. Sean conceded and took the 3rd place finish.
After the completion of the rifle match, we handed out awards. There were a few people that went back to their vehicles to grab their pistol match gear, so we had some down time. While we were in limbo, Janet called out to get everyone’s attention. She especially wanted Pat and I to come over. Seems that she and Paul had brought a cake to celebrate our Anniversary next weekend. It was a very nice surprise and enjoyed by all…………….THANK YOU!
The final awards were handed out and it was pistol match time! We had 4 shooters in Hunter and 2 in Limited…….well kinda really Limited since both Jerry and Mike Harris were using Red-dots! The layout for the pistol match had 1 standing lane and a difficulty of 34.72T. Along with the pistol shooters, John Eroh, Ray Apelles and Leo Gonzales all shot standing with their rifles in order to get some practice in for their upcoming travels to England in a few weeks.
Again, NO cold lines and everything went pretty quick! After the completion of the match, everyone jumped in to help with the teardown………..Again, Greatly appreciated!!!
Things were all stowed away, awards handed out and goodbyes till next time said.
Thanks to all that came out to play in what turned out to be another awesome day! That’s 3 matches in a row with no rain forecast!
