Pecan Plantation Airgun Association
March 11 Air Rifle Field Target Match
Below are the results from Saturday’s Field Target Match in Granbury Texas. The weather forecast threatened rain the Wednesday before. But the bad weather held off, and it turned out we had great conditions… Sunny, mild temps and hardly any wind.
Twenty three people shot the 52-shot match, two shots per lane over 13 lanes, including one lane kneeling and another standing.
High score for the match was Bob Dye’s 50/52, with Buddy Holland close behind at 49, both in Hunter PCP. Mike Vredenburg’s Open PCP rifle is down. No worries… so he shot his HW97 to win Open Piston with 43. Jeff Cloud was delighted to win WFTF Piston with a 42. David Carlile shot a great match to take Hunter Piston honors with a 38. And Ricky and Cody Brooks ran neck and neck in Fun Rifle.
Thanks to all for coming out. The attendance at all three DFW area clubs has been over 20 each match, so it looks like FT is growing well in North Texas. Weather permiting, our next match will be Saturday, May 13.

I, too, was having equipment issues so I stayed home to address them. Fortunately for all of you attendees, you got the nice weather and excellent shooting conditions.
Somebody really needs to "drop that Dye down a notch" Buddy gave it a good shot, but, alas...
Hope to see all of you at Arlington!
