Results from July 4 th Mid-Range Prone F-Class match. 

Twenty three shooters attended the 4th of July match at the Palo Alto range near Donaldsonville, La.  Temperatures were in the mid-nineties but tolerable due to the cloudy and partly cloudy skies of the day.  Thirteen prone shooters attended, with five High Masters, four Experts and four in the combined Sharpshooter/Marksman class, while the f classers were mostly represented by seven in the Target Rifle class and three in Open class.


Conditions varied throughout the day and made for challenging shooting.  Some relays varied between strong southerly winds to mild fishtailing headwinds.  The sun popped in and out for most of the morning which made viewing mirage difficult at times.  Thru it all, as always, the champions persevered and overcame.  The Prone Match Winner was Bob Jenkins with a score of 585-22x.  Whitney Simoneaux was the F-Class Match winner with his score of 592-27x.  Congratulations to both champions!


In the prone Expert field, Ronald Kliebert was tops with a 568-18x score, and in the combined Sharpshooter/Marksman class Bruce Pickering was the winner with 529-6x.   Charles Freeman was second with a nice 520-5x.  Nice shooting guys.


In F-TR, Ted Torres was top gun with a nice score of 565-15x.  Second place was Shaun Sanford with 553-9x.  Shaun topped Ms. Ashlyn Kliebert by a single X.  Congratulations!


The shooters had their share of troubles again, with one shooter suffering a vanishing bullet, another who had a scope problem, and yet another who had to leave the range early.  Some days, the little black cloud follows you around.
