Match went off well. Actually was 22 degrees with a north wind. We filled the line three times for 29 matches fired. High points were a new club record of 283/300 courtesy of Master McSorley's 1903 and a fine 98/100 in a M1 rapid prone by a shooter firing a M1 for the first time. Scores will eventually show up on CMP Competition Tracker. Thanks for participating. That's it for 2010. Good Shooting.....

"First relay is at 10:00AM Show up anytime before dark"

The 2011 match went off well--scores are posted in competition tracker. High points were the weather--sunny dry and high 40s--good as it gets for Michigan in December, excellent turnout--we shot till dark. No new record, unless you count our resident Distinguished High Master and his McCoy M1--which we didn't count.--98-3 97-2 97-2 292-7x. McSorley could have bumped the club record up--started with 97, 97, but darkness overtook him and his usual OH didn't happen....88. He still won the match with his 1903. We fired a sniper match--four shooters shot with the regular relay at 200 through SP, then 10 shots at 300 (with no sighters there)--Won by Brian Quillen 193/4x with his 1903 A1 replica. Thanks to everyone who came and all those who helped make it possible. Good Shooting.......

Can I revive this for 2012? Ceresco, I had hoped to see you at another event, but my schedule won't allow. Is this on for 12/26?

Looks like I'll be making the trip down tomorrow Phil. Bringing the 1917 and my "new" to me '03. By chance is the Doberman available to entertain my daughter, as I can't find a sitter?

Glad you are going to make it, Art. I was going to leave the Doberman home since I didn't have a sitter for her. Maybe I'll bring her.... Good Shooting......
