Last Sunday's PRFTA shoot was held in Ceiba, PR. The tournament was conducted in a beautiful tree farm located at the foot of "El Yunque rain forest. The property is owned by FT shooter Willie R's uncle. The beauty of the place for FT shooters is that is encompasses all kinds of varying terrain, all within easy walking distance, making it easier for those of us "a little" out of shape or "not too young".
Anyhow, the course consisted of 10 lanes, with 3 targets each. 5 lanes were almost level terrain with 5 additional lanes having steep uphill/downhill grades. Some pics of Saturday set-up day......

Sunday loomed overcast and rainy, but Lady Luck smiled upon us, as she always does for nice FT folk, and the clouds and rain cleared up by 10pm, though brisk winds persisted the whole day.
These were the shooters that braved the brisk wind.........................

Master shooter Manolo G, Willito R, & newcomers Cristopher G. and his father Sammy G, a PB guy joining us FTers for the first time. On this day Sammy G. outshot us all, ending with a 54/60, thus shaming us "old timers"! Willie R. in back of Sammy G. coaching him all the way to his victory in PCP Open.

All in all, it was a great shoot. We had 4 newcomers that will shortly be joining our FT ranks, growing our sport and that is what it's all about.
We'll be having the PRFTA Regionals at this place most likely, they are set for November 18th. Visiting contestants will be most welcomed. Let us know if you're contemplating coming down and we'll be more than happy to help you out.
Special thanks go to Willie Rivera and Ramon Conor for taking the lead in setting up this match.
Hoped you liked the report.
