February 2019 Silhouette Report

Must have scared most of the shooters off with the mid-week weather report (29-44 degrees).

Heck, only 37 when we started, 37 with drizzle when we finished!

Eight hardy souls braved it all and it even took decent scores to win.

January 2019 Silhouette Report

Welcome the New Year!! First match of the year, old guard, new shooters, even one watcher.  All came out in the cold, wind and mud. Lots of wet and mud. Thanks to the diesel buggy we got all the targets placed, and to the resettable targets, we didn’t have to go downrange very often.
