Match Results

Shooters,

I don’t know if we are dodging bullets or if it is just dumb luck but the last three matches when it should have been Africa hot it has only been normal hot.  Not complaining just making an observation.  Could be it’s just that the breeze is blocked so bad on the north side bays you end up roasting there.  Anyhow the new bays sure are very nice so please make sure to thank the board members for this nice addition to the club.

Match Results are posted on the scores page.  In case anyone misses it I would like to point out that Billy Carbine shot the fastest time in the Rimfire Pistol Match with an iron sighted pistol.  That’s right he beat all the open guns.  Maybe a new nickname is in order?

Welcome to our newest shooter Gerald Thompson.  I hope you had fun today and will come back again.  Thanks for spending your time and ammo with us.

Next month in preparation for the State Championship match we will be running six stages.  At the end of the match we will also be having a shotgun side match.  Entry fee is $5.00 and all money is paid back to the participants by division: Open, Limited and Pump.  Each stage will be shot one time, the fastest total combined time wins.  Each entrant will start with one round in the chamber and will finish loading their gun on the timer.  Guns will be held at low ready with both hands normally placed, all ammo will be in pouches or holders.  Should be fun and will blast much of the extra paint off of the targets.

Rick has been receiving sponsorship donations for the state match as well.  The prize table is going to be very good.  Prizes are awarded by random drawing so each shooter has an equal chance with the items on the table.  We will be paying Ca$h for finishes bases on division performance.  Once the overhead is paid all entries will be paid back to the shooters.  Please sign up and support this event, entry forms are under the State Championship tab.

Remember practice on Wednesday afternoons.  $5.00 from around 4:00 till dark.

Hope to see all of you on the range again.  Thanks.

Roy

Shooters,

Wow! We shot 44 guns today and still managed to get off the range right at noon. The new bays seem to be working very well. I never noticed how little breeze we got on the north side until now. It sure feels good. I’d like to thank everyone for spending their time and ammunition with us. I’d like to acknowledge our first time shooters: Lee Moore who came in from San Antonio, Domingo Logmao, Chris Waddles, Denise Hagedorn, Troy D. Logmao, Triple Powers (sounds like a superhero name) and Collin Arnold who will be returning to Ohio for college in two weeks. Thank you very much and hope you join us again. It was also nice to see the gang from Jackson County again.

As always the results are posted on the results page and on the Steel Challenge website.

Don’t forget the registration forms for the Texas State Steel Challenge Championship are on the webpage. Rick has been putting in the hours and is already getting some cool stuff for the prize table. As I mentioned this morning we are paying a minimum of 50% of the entries back to the shooters as cash prizes.

Practice is still every Wednesday afternoon from 5:00 until dark. All the shooting you want for $5.00. The club has been setting two stages, if there is any particular stage you want to see set up let me know.

Until next time be safe.

Roy

Shooters,

Thank you for joining us today. We had a total of 27 guns shot and were off the range before noon.

The new bays worked well. It is nice how they open to the south so that the breeze is not blocked by the back wall. Maybe there will shade in place soon. Colonel Davis is now shooting to the north and has the proper light on his targets. We’d all better watch out if he gets any faster. Thank you to the club for the improvement project. I heard two shooters today say that the club is now world class. I’ll have to agree that we have the ability to run about any event now.

What a nice transition to remind everyone of the Texas State Championship we will be hosing in October. Please consider shooting this event. We are anticipating a good turnout and hope to be paying out cash prizes deep into the results.

The results are posted on our scores page. There was an update on the software I report the scores to SCSA with and there is a glitch preventing the upload. I will get with their tech guys this week and get the problem sorted out.

Practice sessions on Wednesday are ongoing. All the shooting you want on two stages for $5.00.

Looking forward to next month.

Roy
