March 1, 2014 Match and Fun Shoot in Mount Pleasant, NC

For our first match of the year we had fifteen shooters and about eight family and friends show up to watch and cheer the shooters on.   We had shooters from all points of the compass. We’d like to thank Joe for driving up from Conway SC and Jimmy for coming all the way from Burgaw NC.  Sue and Skip came in from WV.  Will came from Ennis, NC.

The weather started out in the low 30’s with freezing rain that cleared by the time the match started at 10:30.  The high got up to around 50 degrees by the time we were done.

Chris set up a course with fifteen lanes and two targets per lane.  This time of year there are no leaves n the trees which normally shelter the lanes, and the slight breeze impacted the longer shots a bit.

Lane 15 had a special treat with a third target out at 75 yards.   If a shooter knocked down the 75 yard target he or she would win a free THAGC match later this year.  Chris, Rodney and Scott knocked it down.

We had several new FT shooters and they all said they had a great time.   For the new shooters we included faceplate hits in the scoring.  The awards for the best new FT shooters went to Jimmy  and Sarah.

Most everyone went to a local diner for a late lunch before heading home.

Thanks to everyone for making it a great time and for Chris for once again letting us shoot on his property.
