What a turn out ! .... It would seem that some poor planing / dates of the previous months had a whiplash effect and a whole lot of folks wished to come out and shoot some Field Target today.
No less than 26 shooters converged on the Yolo shooting centers Cowboy Town.  We found the gates open at an early 7:30 getting after it setting up, it was to be a HOT day so speed in getting this match Run-n-done was paramount.  Thank you to those there early & helped getting that accomplished.

As the set up progressed an old mans math error ( Me ) ran the numbers of an @ 50 shot course ... well we got 58 shots realizing things were to take a bit longer, But NO PROBLEM there all up to it .. I think ?
We had @ 1/2 hour of practice then had our shooters meeting ( Did I say what a LOT of folks ) standing room only all crowd around.  Safety issues, WELCOMING back a few shooter we had not seen for a couple seasons, getting a few NEW shooters concerned addressed along with the lets keep moving 5 min per person per lane and off we went to go Knock-Em-Down.

In the @ 3 1/2 hours it took we had only 2 minor lane issues needing no target replacements. Everyone hung in there moving at an even pace and shot the whole match having all 26 score cards accounted for .... NICE !
