Another wonderful day in Mattawan Michigan for the field target competition held at the Southern Michigan Gun Club. The ten-lane thirty-target course was laid out with a ‘moderate’ AAFTA Troyer rating. The difficulty level was 29, although there were some sweet spot kill zones that where really challenging due to shade that day. Thanks to the early-birds, the course was set up in plenty of time before the 10AM start. A great mix of shooters - from those who had never tried field target, to those who need to find a cure. The weather was perfect, not too cold, not too hot (except with a shooting coat), not too windy, not too bad! After sighting in on the 100-yard airgun range, we split up into pairs and attacked the field target lanes. The targets mostly behaved as planned - a couple replacements early, and two with protests on the scorecards. Boomer gave us a good lesson on handling target protests - the match director verified that the questionable targets were in proper working condition, and the recorded scores remained in effect. Lots of camaraderie both on the course, and afterwards when Chris Martin treated us to a lunch of hot wraps, chips, and cold ice cream. (orange Dream-cicles...how longsitbeen since ya had one a them???
) We all jumped in to take down the targets, gather up our stuff, and get ready for another wonderful field target match in August.
Good shooting from all!…here are the details…
