**Field Precision Rifle Match March 10th, 2018**12 Shooters showed for our second match of 2018. The night before the rain forecast was 80% and everyone was expecting at least some rain, but to everyone’s delight we didn’t even see any threatening clouds. Unfortunately, a wreck on I-10 in Baton Rouge made it impossible for a few shooters to make the match. Many thanks to Jerry for manning the pits for all strings and Robin for letting me shoot your fantabulous rifle for one string. Jerry you did an outstanding job getting the flags up again. Your help is greatly appreciated.

The winds as always started out slowly, twitching back and forth. As usual they picked up in intensity as the day wore on. Many eyes were on the flags watching them for clues as best we could because the mirage seemingly showed no change in conditions when in fact there was. It was also a matter as to which flags to pay most attention to. In other words…. just another day at the Hornet’s Nest!

We had 4 shooters show for FPR this month. James Authement shot a 581-11X to earn first place and Tom Neely shot a 572-10X to garner second place.

7 shooters showed to shoot the match as an F Class match. Bob Lundholm AGAIN was the man setting the pace for all shooters shooting a 596-42X to earn the first-place medal. Bob also had a spectacular 200-18X the first string. Dwight Hebert after a long layoff shot a 591-22X to take second place.

Only one shooter showed to shoot the match as a sling shooter…. Thank you, Joe, for letting a new prospective shooter shadow you the whole match. Joe shot a 560-11X.

In a first……Robin and Glen finished first in the team competition(hehe) shooting a combined score of 597-35X. Thank you, Shawn, for your business card…. I’ll get right on that F-Open build!!

Hope everyone enjoyed themselves and thank you for a safe match.

Glen and Jerry
