Four riflemen met at our range at 0900, Saturday, Oct. 23, to shoot our regular weekly high power match. The temperature was 44 degrees, the sky overcast and the wind calm. We all fired the John C. Garand Match - Course A, as fired at the National Matches at Camp Perry, Ohio.
Dave Spearing won the match with his K31 Schmidt-Rubin in 7.5X55mm by hitting 95- 1X+92+79=266-1X. He would have won a bronze medal at Camp Perry and we all congratulate him on both wins. Ron Troch fired his '03 and hit 85+88-1X+79=252-1X. I fired my '03-A3 and hit 85-1X+83+74=242-1X. Paul Straka fired his '03-A3 and hit 92+85+57=234.
After the match, three of us went to the excellent Willow Glen Caf for beverages. Carrie and
Lynn poured and Spearing paid. We all thank them.
