We had a nice winter day for the match. It was cold, but we have shot in some nightmarishly cold temperatures other years.  So my finger felt like a stick in offhand; I had fun anyway (no hope of a squeeze).  The snow held off for the morning relay, but by 1pm it was a blinding snow storm!  Congratulations to Jim and Mike, Dave found you both shot 431ís Ė after correcting Jimís arithmetic error.  By the X count Jim turned out to be the match winner, Dave the garand winner and Mike the bolt gun winner.  Mike has only shot for a couple years and here he is at the top of the heap Ė disgusting! Ashton shot a gun for the second time in his life Ė thatís a winner too.

Something for thought: we didnít have any shooters again for the afternoon relay.  Dave and I will just about do anything to draw more shooters, but the afternoon relay isnít working.  To help us out of our frustration, how about calling either of us by Saturday evening if you plan to shoot in the afternoon relay?  Then if we donít get any calls and the weather is bad we can go home and eat lunch with our families too.  We said we would have an afternoon relay and we will continue it through this year. 

The next match is March 29, 2009 Ė the match somehow missed getting in the newsletter.

Thanks to you shooters for coming,

Pete Mathews (398-4368)

Dave Dunkle   (398-4052)
