DECEMBER 6, 2008
We had another beautiful day for

Alto was interesting all day, but not overpowering.

nice score of 590-21x, and Don Geraci was the F-Class Match Winner with his
score of 592-30x. Shawn Sanford took top honors in the F-TR class with
558-8x. Shawn was shooting his .308 tactical rifle. On the prone
side, Buck Kliebert took top honors in the combined Master/Expert class with a
nice 585-19x with his Palma
rifle. George Fournet was top=2
0gun in the combined Sharpshooter/Marksman

We hope to see you there.
In the meantime, we would like to express
our thanks for your support throughout the year 2008. Although we lost three
matches to weather and hurricanes, we still had a very successful year. We saw many new shooters and we saw our ‘regulars’ get better and
better. Thanks to the foresight and prudence of our club’s leaders
past and present, as well as the tremendous support of our volunteers, we are
back even better than before the storm. Our new covers and clubhouse are
our pride and joy. We look forward to hosting you in them in our future

and your families during this beautiful holiday season. Please be safe
and join us in the New Year!!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!
