WWCCA June 6th 2010 Field Target Report

The recent span of wet weather forced us to move our June event from the walk through range to the covered air gun range. I personally wanted to keep the course on the outside range as myself and my brother had put in two solid days of work getting it ready for the shoot. We placed additional stands in trees and on posts, and will continue to improve the walk -through range with additional target locations and lanes. However, in the end I was glad that I listened to Fritz, who helped us make the final preparation on Saturday, and he and my wife Karen moved the course to the range.

Our attendance has been on the increase since last year, and this event brought out 13 shooters, even though the weather was less than ideal. Rain was a part of our entire day, and our event would have been cancelled except for the outstanding facilities we enjoy here at WWWCA.   We shot ten lanes under cover, and although it was a little tight, we completed the shoot and all were in the clubhouse by 1:30 P.M.

Our top shooter this month was Jeff Paddock in the piston class, shooting an HW97, and  logging a score of 58. Jim Stanis, shooting a FWB P70 in the International PCP class, came in second overall with a 57.  Marty Carie rounded out the top three, shooting 46 in the hunter class with his Marauder.  Other shooters included Fritz Sanders, Rick Broughton, Andy Wong, Ken Matson, Wilfred Greaves, Aaron Carie, Bob Schlund, and Gerald Smith. Of note, both Wilfred and Ken improved their scores substantially from last month. Congratulations to all of our shooters!

We all enjoyed a light lunch after the shoot courtesy of WWWCA. Our clubhouse has a full kitchen and a good menu, and we spent some time talking amongst ourselves afterwards.
