"Scott indicated that while keeping the Troyer similar to past matches, he traded some close, small KZ targets for longer larger KZ targets. It is clear that longer targets mixed with a bit of wind are harder to hit than closer targets with the same Troyer (as most of us were painfully aware of already)."
Actually, closer targets with the same Troyer are just as hard. But when the smallest target on the course is 15mm, it's not possible to make the close ones the same Troyer. A 15mm at 10 yards at 17T is the highest difficulty possible on a close target. A 40mm (full size) at 27 yards would also be 17T and is about as easy as it gets.
A 1.5" target at 55 yards is 41T. A 10 yard target at 41T would have a 1/4" KZ. That 1/4" target is just as hard to hit. If it's calm, the 55 yarder might be even easier. When its very windy, the 55 yarder
is more difficult.
We did not have all that much wind last weekend, but it was darned hard to read as the direction changed often.
You shot very well, especially on day 2. Most of the top spots were decided by the off-hand lane, yours included. Always good to have you at our matches. And I'm glad you joined the family for the BBQ.
