Texas State Rifle Association Highpower Rifle Championship
At Camp Swift this weekend. Friday was 4-man team day. 50 shots each for an aggregate score. The championship began Saturday. It was for a two-day score over Saturday and Sunday. About 100 folks were shooting in four relays. The wind was up and standing scores at 200 plummeted. It came right up the range from the South. I think I shot 300 yards with no wind on the rifle in a gust. Only came off 600 with 1 1/2 minutes right wind. Sunday threatened 100% chance of rain by 11:00. Dave Wilson and Ken Gaby called the match on Sunday after everyone finished the 200 yard line and saved us and the targets a good soaking. The Sat-Sun total was 900 points. Keith Stephens won the Championship for the third time in the last four years. Congrats to Keith and thanks to everyone who worked and helped put on the match. Alan Wilson, Keith and Karl Schultz did a good job entering the results and posted them yardline by yardline.
