May 29, 2016 Rim Fire Bench Rest Rifle Match Results
A light drizzly rain fell as 19 shooters enjoyed a relaxing day competing against each other in three classes defined by rifle type. Many practice sessions paid off for Semi Auto Class winner Ken Chambers. Sporter Class was taken by a young lad named Hunter from Nestor Falls. Hunter was shooting an inexpensive rifle proven in competition supplied by another shooter. Katelyn Jack from Emo was ahead and on track to win Sporter Class until we broke for lunch and the wind conditions changed. In Unlimited Class the reigning champion Phil Nick had a melt down and didn’t place in the top three. Then it was a three-way battle between Rod Jack from Emo, Calvin Yanchycki from Brandon and Ron Pettigrew. Phil’s range record of 750/750 points with 41 X dots was in jeopardy until the last target. Rod’s second target 250 with 20 X’s was the highest scoring single target ever shot in competition at our Club.
