July 30th 2017 Rimfire Benchrest Match Results

Eighteen shooters attended, some traveled considerable distances. It was a hot day reaching 30
degrees with no wind in the morning and mild readable breezes in afternoon. The lack of wind produced some very high scores in all classes.

In Semi Auto Class, Ron McDaniel’s 2014 record fell to Ken Chambers who raised the range
record by 6 points. In Unlimited Class Ron Pettigrew shot patiently and defensively, taking no chances, using all the time allowed to shoot clean and tie the existing range record set by Phil Nick in 2012. Sporter Class had the potential to reset the range record but luck and other factors intervened.

Congratulations to the winners. It was interesting to watch the tight five-way horse races unfold
and the animated reactions to dropped shots from dirty barrels, inconsistent ammo and mysterious unexplained invisible anomalies.

Special thanks to the Jack family for putting on a great barbeque and feeding us lunch.
Thanks to the volunteers who ran targets, helped score, acted as line safety officers and referees. And thanks to the shooters in all classes for the quality of competition they bring to our matches.
