Results from July 4 th Mid-Range
Prone F-Class match.
Twenty three shooters attended the 4th of July
match at the Palo Alto range near Donaldsonville, La.
Temperatures were in the mid-nineties but tolerable due to the cloudy and
partly cloudy skies of the day. Thirteen prone shooters attended, with
five High Masters, four Experts and four in the combined Sharpshooter/Marksman
class, while the f classers were mostly represented by seven in the Target
Rifle class and three in Open class.
Conditions varied throughout the day and made for
challenging shooting. Some relays varied between strong southerly winds
to mild fishtailing headwinds. The sun popped in and out for most of the
morning which made viewing mirage difficult at times. Thru it all, as
always, the champions persevered and overcame. The Prone Match Winner was
Bob Jenkins with a score of 585-22x. Whitney Simoneaux was the F-Class
Match winner with his score of 592-27x. Congratulations to both
In the prone Expert field, Ronald Kliebert was tops with a
568-18x score, and in the combined Sharpshooter/Marksman class Bruce Pickering
was the winner with 529-6x. Charles Freeman was second with a nice 520-5x.
Nice shooting guys.
In F-TR, Ted Torres was top gun with a nice score of
565-15x. Second place was Shaun Sanford with 553-9x. Shaun topped
Ms. Ashlyn Kliebert by a single X. Congratulations!
The shooters had their share of troubles again, with one
shooter suffering a vanishing bullet, another who had a scope problem, and yet
another who had to leave the range early. Some days, the little black
cloud follows you around.
