GOB Match – First run this year with Mrod   Leave a comment

Greetings All,

I was able to make it to a match today and it was a very nice day for a FT match. I have not completed the amount of testing that I wanted with pellets and hold-over, but shot anyways.

Pat O’brien was nice enough to put a report of the match. Here is the FT Forum posting:

February 2011 match at the GOB

Beautiful day for FT at Rox’s Hollow. It was in the 60’s and no rain for a
change. Rain is expected again tomorrow and Monday. For the most, wind was not a
problem. There were a few gusts here and there. We had 9 shooters today and all
had a great time, though some of the scores were a little low. David Brown was
missed by all. John and Tammy Blount were able to make it and we were all glad
to see them back.

Roz Sumpter was high score overall in the PCP class with his MFR and a 53/60.
Harold Rushton finished a close second overall in the WFTF class with his Steyr
and 51/60.

David Slade had a 43/60 for second in the WFTF class and was tied with Steve
Vines who had a 43/60 in the piston class.

Jeff Aweduti was with us today and got a 38/60 in the Hunter class with a
Maurader. Good to see him back again.

53/60, Roz Sumpter, MFR, Nikko 10-50, JSB 10.2

Some of the competitors are headed south soon to participate in either or the
Texas and LA. matches. David Slade plans to have a match at his place around the
last Saturday in March.

Hopefully as the year goes on I will be able to increase the score. Also, I plan to purchase a stock later on in hopes that will help the scores also.

Here are some pictures from the match today.

Well, that about wraps up this day. I had a fun day hitting some targets and talking with fellow airgunners.

Until next time, get out there and live life and laugh a little at it.
