Out of Town Match - Phoenix rod and gun Club - Metric Sm Bore Dec 24 2010
Seven hardy soles braved the desert cold, to punish themselves trying to shoot 10s on those incredibly hard UIT metric targets Christmas Eve morning. While the temp was only 44 deg to start, it warmed up quickly into the 50's and with the wind almost not a factor till the last targets of this 1200 pt match, it was a great day to pull some triggers.
Peter Church kept his groups small enough to score mostly tens while the rest of us were plinking out nines and occasional 8s. Peter fired a very nice 1182/1200 to win the match, with Ken Nelson taking 2nd over all and 1st Canadian with an 1156.
Rob Nabower, normally shooting F-class in Long Range matches, came out for his first Sm bore match, and shooting from a sling scored a very reasonable 1064. I know that I didn't score that high in my first metric match.
