So it turned out to be an awesome day for a "Monster" match!!! The morning started off quite cool around 38 degrees but warmed up into the upper 50's by lunch time. we ended up shooting 112 shots today for score. We had 14 lanes, 4 targets per lane, and 2 shots per target. Alex pulled out all the stops today since he had to dig deep to gather enough targets for the match. We had a few targets that I personally have never seen at BAGA before. We had a large white owl, a white headed pigeon, and a few newer small kz targets that found their way into the match this week. Bill, Ron, Brando, and Alex have spent a whole ton of time in the past month working to "cut out" new lanes so they were able to add lanes, 12, 13, and 14 for this match.
I do not have the official numbers, but I would estimate this course shot to about a 38-43 troyer. It was not tooo difficult, but was challenging and tons of fun.
Ron and Bill provided the awesome lunch today(as always)!!!
Here are some photos of the day and scoreboard.

our AWESOME Chef Ron at work on the grill. Wow!!! Whata spread of food again today. Ron and Bill out-do themselves each time we have a match. It must be a personal bet they have with each other. I for one love everything they cook for us at each match. I heard a comment today by one of the guys..."man what a feed this is...can't beat this". A day in the woods shooting a FT match and a 5 star meal directly following. thanks again Ron and Bill for the grub!

Some of the lanes and targets from today's match
This lane gets in everyone's head and messes them up!
the cobra on the right and the rabbit both have .375 kz's on them and they are out between 16-17 yards. It is a really fun lane for me.
2 near targets were standing
2 far targets were kneeling

This is the end of the outdoor season at BAGA though we will be outside until mid novemberish depending on weather, then we head indoors to our 30 yard range inside the club house. The IFP league will begin in December and go for 5-6 months until we go back outside in the spring. If you cannot come up and enjoy BAGA outside this year, come join us inside. The range is filled with colorful trees right now and we will have plenty of people showing up to finish the outdoor season so come up and check us out to see what we are all about.
Hope you enjoy!
