DIFTA Match Results

It looks like that, for a few shooters the match in North Carolina was not enough and wanted to shoot a few more targets. Therefore, considering that the weather forecast was calling for fair weather, we agreed to organize an ad-hoc match at DIFTA today.
Unfortunately, we experienced an extreme case of Maryland weather unpredictability and, in less than a day the forecast moved from less than 40% probability of up to .1" of rain and temperatures well into the sixties to 95% chances of up to .5" of rain and temperature in the low fifties.

This morning, ten shooters showed up for the match, despite temperatures in the low-mid forties and significant rain (I guess we got at least 1"). Due to the mutated weather conditions, it was decided to move twenty targets from the regular lanes to the sight-in range and we shot a 40 shots match with targets arranged in four lanes of 5 targets each.

I cannot provide the statistics of the course difficulty but I estimated roughly at 26-28T

Disgusting performance of Mike Harris, who almost cleaned the course.

Everybody had a good time and, by the time we were done and the grill fired-up, it had stopped raining altogether.

Here are the results:

Shooter Rifle Scope Pellet Division/Class Score
Michael Harris Steyr LG110 .20 Sightron 10-50x60 JSB 13.43 .20 Open PCP 39

even after being up all night in the bathroom. Good thing Virginia has put wake up strips on the center line. I used them quite a few times that morning. LOL!!! Congrats to Mike & Knobs for shooting lights out !!! I decide to go for consistency & shot about as so-so as I did on Saturday. Hopefully I used up all of my crappy shots before we head to Puerto Rico on Thursday. looking forward to the next match @ DIFTA. Paolo great job for a crappy weather day !!!
