Good Ole Boy’s match – April 8 ,2017
Saturday turned out to be a great day in Middle Tennessee at Roz’s Hollow. The sky was a beautiful blue with practically no clouds. Temperature was cool early before the match, but warmed up to in the 70’s before we were through. There was a little wind to contend with. We had 10 shooters show up and 3 different classes represented. 3 in WFTF, 6 in Open and only 1 in the Hunter class.
Harold Rushton was high point overall and in the WFTF class with a score of 55/60 and cleaned 7 lanes on a fairly tough course. Mike Wright was second overall with a score of 51/60 in the Open class. Mike only missed 2 shots in the close and middle targets.
My shooting partner, Larry Cleveland was the only Hunter shooter today and had a score of 39/60. I think shooting with me may have hurt him, as he usually does much better. I seem to have that effect on most shooters.
Mike Wright is not able to shoot here as often as we would like. He did very well in the Open class with a top score of 51/60. Our host, Roz Sumpter took second in this class with a score of 50/60, In spite of being worn out from last week’s outing in Baton Rouge. Jeff Hale had a great day with a score of 49/60 in the Open class.
Hope to see more shooters out next month.
