It was an absolutely beautiful day for field target in NC today. Chris Berry set up a challenging course, 60 shots over fifteen lanes.
Prior to starting we had a review of the new AAFTA rules for 2015 and talked about club business. We had two new shooters and one of them used the loaner rifle that Will built for the club… Joseph shot a very good 29 of 60 having never shot a field target match before.
A few other highlights…..
Ben Smith, our sole junior today, continues to improve with each match.
Ed Canoles continues to shoot his R9 well but Joe Mags is coming on strong with a new rifle.
This is now the start of the third year of our club and for the first time we had two WFTF shooters… Chris Berry and Mark LaPointe both shooting new rifles.
Will Piatt moved from Hunter to Open and shot a very good score using holdover.
