I apologize for waiting this long to post results. My hotel had lousy wi-fi service. In this day and age? Not good. Anyway, the luxury of our calm weather we had from the first two days went away. Saturday was the ANY rifle/IRON sight day with a 4 person team event at the end. I shot very well in my individuals with my Palma but not enough to beat the top shooters. Some perfect scores out there. John Whitaker for one. Unstoppable.

I had mentioned the other day that I was going to be put on a scoped rifle for an ANY/ANY team event. Well it turns out it was to be an ANY/IRON team. But I did borrow Ricky’s 6.5-284. My ANY/IRON team was made up of myself, Rick Hunt, Bud Solis and German Salizar. (We forgot to get a team photo! My bad.)We lost our 5th team member due to illness so Ricky who normally only coaches got to shoot also. So I coached for him. Unfortunately I got caught in a few wind changes so that brought our score down. Sorry gang. Otherwise, I shot perfectly under Ricky’s supervision. And with a rifle I had never used before!
Sunday we ended the week with ANY/ANY rifles individuals. This was probably the most challenging day with wind and I had my best results of wind reading. While most everyone shot scopes I kept even scores with my Palma iron sights. Like last year having a goal of making the US Development Team and making it, I have a goal of being the best wind reader in a short amount of time. By this time next year you will see my name as Match Winner. Wishful thinking? I think not!
