Team Day

The Silver Team was just on the other side of the center tower from the Gold Team.  I didn't bother them much, having my own cats to herd.  The Silver team was a pretty good bunch.  We'd gone for youth and getting the experience rather thatn using Greg Foster, Tony Miller and Bill Aten and going for score.  The Silver team shot out-of-competition, so we wouldn't burn any shooters that can be used as a new guy on the Gold Team in future years.

  That said, they were a pretty good bunch.  We had the most and best administrators ever.  Usually the Silver Team coaches itself, provides a scorer next door and uses a team member as Captain.  We had all that covered.  David Keys ran the shop.  I called the wind and handled the coaching on the line and Rol Coggins helped out everywhere else.  

  The team shot well, especially Greg Troxell who started off with a 99 standing at 200 in the dark.  Sitting we were OK on, though we let some points get away.  300 was a little worse and at 600 we struggled.  We were 5th out of 26 teams in the out-of-comp.  2751X39.
