Pistol Match Report and Friday of 2018 AAFTA Nationals

Paul Porch was the match director for the 2018 AAFTA national Pistol Championship.  He put together a difficult pistol course for the competitors and Tyler Patner shot high score, only missing two shots all day in Limited Pistol.  Shootoffs were needed to determine the top five trophy spots in Hunter Pistol with Mike Norris coming out ahead of Bob Dye in a very exciting shootoff.

While not a recognized AAFTA division, Keo and John shot hands only pistol and Leo edged John out by a couple of points.

Here are the scores:

2018 THAGC Schedule
The 2018 Schedule is online with events in both Pleasant Hill and in Ennice.   The schedule is located here.  Given the great venues and the nationals prep I doubt that we will have any THAGC matches in Raleigh this year.  However, if there is interest I could host a fun shoot on an open Saturday if I could get help setting up the targets.  We will just see how things develop.We have attempted to coordinate this with the CCGC schedule which is generally the fourth Saturday of the month except that in September Gerald will host on the 5th Saturday in Burlington.  Thanks Gerald for switching off on that Saturday with us.  Remember there is a shoot at CCGC this Saturday.

The unlimited hunter proposal did not pass in AAFTA.  It was quite controversial and the 2/3 affirmative vote of the clubs was not reached.    If you wish to shoot unlimited in club events it will be available if interest is there but we will likely combine with open at the discretion of the match director.
