Match Report Arlington Sportsmans Club 01/28/17

The Arlington Sportsmans Club held our monthly Field Target rifle match today. The forecast was for sunny skies, light wind, and a high of 54F, but we started shooting at 39F. Brrr! 19 shooters showed up to shoot the 29 target/58 shot rifle match including 4 new shooters and someone that came to observe before jumping in with a new purchase. We were pleased to welcome 2 new shooters that came with Bob Pacatte from Brownwood. These new shooters were taking Bob’s Intro to Shooting Sports class at their local university and were immediately hooked on air rifle FT.

I planned this FT match to be a little easier than past matches since it was the first one of the year. Scott Cotton, Brad Vanpool, and Chris helped me setup on Friday evening, and make a few small tweaks to the improve course. The course of fire had an average distance of 25.4 yards and a Troyer difficulty rating of 28.2, with only 14% of the targets over 40yds, and some lifelike target placements (aka, behind grass, fallen trees, and in trees) to spice things up.

We had our shooters safety meeting, squadded the guys together, and then got started on time. I was squadded with Paul K, a new shooter, so that I could show him the ropes and make sure he had fun. He did, and is anxiously waiting the return of his Benjamin Marauder from a tune-up by a local shooter. We sat on the archery tower this time to practice extreme down-angle shooting, and the only complaint was that guys with bipods had trouble with them sliding around on the wood planking.
At the end of the match, we turned in our scorecards and I tallied the scores. Our very own Terry Vanpool posted the match high score of 53/58 in Hunter PCP. First place in Hunter Piston was Jim Clarke with 41/58, and finally first place in WFTF Piston was Matt Sawyer with 44/58. View the full list of all competitors’ scores and equipment below.


Once again, I’d like to extend my thanks to the ASC archery director for continuing to allow us to use the 3D archery course for our monthly matches. Thanks Rodney!! Many thanks to everyone who helped setup the course and takedown the course after the match. Our goal is to leave the range looking like we were never there and your assistance goes a long way to helping us achieve that goal. The ASC club will host our next regular monthly match on February 25.

If you have any interest in air rifles, have an air rifle sitting in the closet, or just want to try something new, come on out and shoot some targets that react when you hit them. We have a class for everyone, and all of our shooters are more than willing to help you out and share their knowledge.

Thanks for the, you know, effort, Jeff. There will be no money, but on your death bed, you will achieve total consciousness.
So you've got that going for you, which is nice.
Gunga ga lunga.

Great to see so many people show up for the first match of the year. A bit chilly to start, but the sun helped make it seem warmer.

Very different and fun course design, Jeff!

Maybe after the next match you can stay for a swim at the club. We've got a pool and a pond...the pond would be best for you. Nanananana...
