Joe Mendham has submitted the following match report, which heralded the return of BR shooting to the Fraser Valley. Note they shot an X=11 format. That should make certain Eastern shooters happy whose initials are BG! See Joe's comments below.

---------------

We  had our first BR for score match at the Mission Rod and  Gun Club  and had 7 shooters show up to shoot. I'd like to thank the  four shooters who came over from Vancouver Island to shoot , and  especially Greg Yeomans and Chris Klumpp  who dug right in to  help run the shoot.  We only shot 200 yd for score and Don Sunquist held it all together to take top spot for the  day with a 256 narrowly beating out Greg Yeomans with 255.  Thanks to all that showed up.

 
  Don Sunquist            51  52   52   52  49  ---  256
    Greg Yeomans         49  54  51  52   49   --- -255
    Chris Klumpp           50  48   51   51  50  ----  250
    Joe Mendham          48  51  49   47   48   --  -243
    Dennis Tipper          49  44  49   50   45   ---  237
    Lowell  Boyd           47  47   49   49  43      ---235
    Caroline Adam        43  44  36  44   43     ---210

What I like about the X=1 is that the fight is right up to the last target, look at the scores, all Greg had to do was shoot a 51 on the last target, and he would have won. It really comes to the front when you get more shooters. One time at Elmira we had 8 shooters who all had the same score going into the 5th target. Can't remember who won but he was a dashing, handsome person of means, EH!

Those unseen winds between the 100 and 200 yd backstops will do it to you everytime.  Our thanks to Joe for putting on the shoot from the Campbell River crowd.


Joe cleaning and Lowell wondering


Dennis wondering as well

Cheers
Greg

 It was a good shoot , I think everyone had a good time even though the sheriff tried to put a dampener on things.

Any more details on the shoot next Sunday?

I'm thinking about trying to find my way down there from Powell River.  Anyone from CR or Sechelt going to make it down this time?

  We start about 9:00  and this shoot I'm going to try 100yd BR for score and if time permits maybe some Fly targets or a 3 yardage gopher target.

  I haven't heard if anyone from the Island is coming to this one , I saw Greg and Dennis at the Kamloops gun show and I think they were going to Alberta to shoot gophers. I haven't heard from anyone in Sechelt .

 Any other questions or you can message me.

Joe
