NWA-BR TRR OBR-R 06/09/2012
Man, Mother Nature has smiled on us again. Even though the sky LOOKED as if it was going to raise a leg on us, it NEVER DID!!
The thought of that happening kept some shooters at home but we did have eight "Roll the Dice" and come on out.
We even had two shooters (Bob & Kay) that "Rolled those Dice", got loaded up and drove to TRR and "Rolled again" and then decided they would rather go to town and "Generate some Inflation"..............
The TRR TRIAD has gained a reputation for going from EASY to HARD as time and distance changes.
The 50 foot distance (indoors during the winter) is not easy and when you add the outdoor elements it really becomes Much HARDER!
But then it's 25 Meter time and the wind seems to know and increases with the distance change.
BUT WAIT.............You Ain't Seen Nuthin' Yet!!!!!!!!!!
50 Yards and the wind just jumps with joy! Sometimes so fierce we have had target stands blow over.
WE are STILL trying to figure out the "TRR Wind Formula"...................
It's something like.................
Time=Distance+Wind Velocity divided by Pellet Weight multiplied by the Square Route of the Airguns Foot Pounds of Energy cosigned into the Ambient Temperature minus the Muzzle Velocity...............................................
And that is about as far as we have got so far trying to figure it out.
BUT, we will continue to have our Bench Rest Matches at TRR every second Saturday and have lots of fun!
Todays 150 Shot Match consisted of 50 shots at 50 feet, 75 shots at 25 Meters and 25 shots at 50 Yards.
Jim Benson was our Match Winner today shooting a 1416/53X out of a possible 1500/50X with his FWB P70.
He will be the holder of the "Majic Pellet" at next months match. Good Shooting, Jim!!
Harvey won the Springer Class (since he was the only one) and for his efforts, he has been given an all expense paid trip back home to Tumwater. Luxury Level at what ever Level he can afford.
JD brought his "Box Stock" "Light Varmint" and his "Joe Korick" "Heavy Varmint" EV2s but only used his "LV" today.
The "JK-HV" is still in the "Pellet Identification" process. Fedex is bringing SIX more varients to try on monday!
John Mickel has won so many matches over the years that the challenge is not there for him anymore and he sometimes chooses to sit out. I think if we had more benches he would have shot though.
BUT...........WE get TWO Chances to benefit from him sitting out..............
Number One: We don't have to worry about him "Showing Us How It's Done"...............
AND Number Two: WE get an outstanding Person, with many years of experience, to do the Scoring!!!!
Seriously, John...........Thanks a Million!!

Then Watch Out!!!!!!!!!!!!!
