After cancelling our Dec match due to the weather, we couldn’t have found better temperatures for Saturday’s Dallas FT Club Match. At match time it was a sunny 71º, and by match end it was a balmy 85º. This is February, right?

The only problem… The warm weather also brought lots of wind, from manageable 5-10mph breezes, to 20-35mph gusts, seemingly at random. With winter foliage (read no foliage) on the trees, the wind was free to cause havoc at the most unexpected times.

Bare trees let the wind influence the match…


Still, we were pleased to see 23 shooters appear to have fun. For the first time in memory, we had more piston shooters (7-WFTF and 4-Hunter) than Hunter PCP participants. Kevin Enzian did an excellent job running the proceedings as Match Director. Thanks, Kevin.

The course of fire was 60 shots, spread among 10 lanes (3 per lane), including 6 kneeling and 6 standing shots. The course was designed to increase the Standard Deviation overall, to 10.8. This meant that no KZ was smaller than 3/4”, the average KZ being 1-1/4” over an average distance of 30.5 yards. The resulting course difficulty was an AAFTA minimum 28 Troyer (before wind).

Welcome back to four friends who made long trips… Matt Sawyer, Leo Duran, Robert Droege and Jim Clarke. And welcome aboard to some new shooters trying out the game… Jack Judd, Jonathan Rebmann, William Quiles, and his son Alexander.

Bob Pacatte brought two new shooters, Jonathan Rebmann (L) and Jack Judd…


Alexander Quiles, being coached by dad, William Quiles…


The scores were not as good as a 28 Troyer would have predicted, certainly due to the wind. Match High score was only 80%, a 48/60, shot by Bob Dye in Hunter PCP. Matt Sawyer won the WFTF Piston Class with a 42. Mike Vredenburg shot the high score in Open PCP with a 39. And newcomer Jack Judd shot a fine 27 to win Hunter Piston, matching Curtis Eskind’s 27 in Open Piston. William Quiles led three Fun Rifle shooters with an 81/120 score.

Matt Sawyer shooting the Standing lane…


There were two target malfunctions, so these were credited to all. However, not all scorecards reflected this. So in double checking scores after the match, I made several adjustments to add points to half a dozen scores. The scoreboard below reflects the revised match scores.

All in all, a great start to the 2017 Field Target season!

A special thanks goes to all the shooters who helped break down the lanes and load everything in my truck. Would have been tough without your help. And thanks to you Bob for handling the registration/checkin details while I was doing the last minute scurrying around setting up for the match.

I would also like to thank those new shooters and those that traveled hours to get to the match. It is greatly appreciated and hope you will continue to come as many times as you can.

Bob & Kevin (and all NTexas clubs),
Thanks for continuing to put on your FT matches for all of us shooters. I believe we have some of the highest turnout for regular monthly matches, and the level of competition makes all of us better.
Bob, I also cannot remember when there were more piston shooters than PCP shooters, except for the Pecan Plantation Piston Championship where all of you PCP shooters were FORCED to shoot a springer. LOL
See you all at the next match.
Jeff

Very cool to see all those piston guns on the line. I'll take 85 and a breeze vs. 35, rain and mud any time!

got a good break in the weather. Great attendance! My wife is in Irving, TX right now visiting relatives. Sunday she mentioned it was in the 80's but I thought she was busting my you no what because some one had to stay home with the animals and shovel and blow snow. One of these years maybe we will visit Texas together like we did in 2009. I travel alone quite a lot anyway so I'm glad she is getting some nice weather. She said it was raining today but tomorrow she heads out for San Diego for 4 or 5 days before returning home. Nice shooting Bob and a hoot to Matt and Jeff. Looking very promising Mr. Sawyer for the worlds this year. Keep up the good work. It is nice to see the piston classes growing. Thirteen at a local shoot has got to be a record attendance.

Since you have relatives in the area, you can maybe plan a trip around one of the N. TX matches. The Rep. of Texas GP will be in the Dallas area September 23-24, at ASC in Mansfield.
