Saturday April 4, 2009



Thirty one shooters at our little match today.  The winds were typical Palo Alto, and the weather was just about perfect.


We had eleven shooters competing in F-Class, four in F-TR and seven in F-Open.  Ted Torres was top gun in F-TR class with a nice score of 564-13x, just beating Ms. Ashlyn Kliebert by a single point.  The TR class is always tight near the top.  Nice shooting Ted.


In the Open class, Whitney Simoneaux was F-Class Match Winner by X count over Joey Clark.  Whitney shot a very nice 593-31x.  Joey Clark was first Open class with 593-26x, and Lanny Russell was third with 588-25x.


On the Prone side, Rob Westfall was Prone Match Winner with 593-34x.  Gary Henry was 1st HM with 591-29x.  Buck Kliebert won the combined Master-Expert class with 582-16x, followed by Ronald Kliebert’s 573-12x.  Third place was Emmett Roan with 570-22x.  This was Emmett’s first time back with us in a couple years.  The combined Sharpshooter-Marksman class was won once again by Norman Bennett with 559-14x.  Second place was Bruce Pickering’s 554-9x, and third place was taken by Bob Bose with 538-9x.  Congratulations to all.


Thanks to everyone for helping to clean up the range after our little windstorm of a few days ago.  It sure made a mess of things.  For those of you who were not there, we had chairs blown to the fence/highway, trash barrels everywhere, etc. it was quite a little blow.  Happily, our new covers came through with flying colors with no damage.  It looks like money well spent.  Also, special thanks to those who stayed after the match to repair our targets.  We replaced the cardboard backing on those needing it, and refaced all frames.  The range is in fine shape for our two upcoming Regional championships.

Our next match will be the Palo Alto SPRING REGIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP fired May 2-3, 2009.  The format will be the same as our monthly matches, fired on consecutive days.  The weather should be fine, so make plans to attend both days.  We will provide food and drinks on the range following Saturday’s shooting.  The match bulletin is attached.  (You can shoot a single day if you wish, but all awards and door prizes will be for the two day aggregate.)  We will be giving a crispy new $100.00 bill each day as a door prize.
