We were back on our regular summer schedule for the match, and 11 shooters shot as a cold front moved in off the Pacific.  Conditions were a little unsettled to begin with as the front came in and we shot the 300 yard distance, but the drizzle descended and things calmed down by the time we reached 100 yards.   

Special thanks to our out-of-town shooters who made the trek.

Thanks also to Pete and Vlad who ran the targets, to Art who scored and collected our money and to Joe who called the line and provided technical assistance. 

Winners at the various yardages were:
300 - Mark DuMont 1st, Pete Talas 2nd, Joe Mendham 3rd.  (Tie broken between Mark and Pete.)
200 - Mark DuMont 1st, Joe Mendham 2nd, Pete Talas 3rd.  (Tie broken for third between Pete and Art.)
100 - Mark DuMont 1st, Joe Mendham 2nd, Pete Talas 3rd.

Results sorted by the Grand Agg numbers follow...


And some great pics from Richard!

This match is very much a "run what you brung" affair, so the following equipment list makes for some interesting reading!

Richard Nicol has written a detailed account of his experience at the Jim Latham shoot and has given us permission to post this document which was originally posted at his home Club. I think you will enjoy it. Thanks Richard! PDF file is attached.
