Lot of effort to throw a party this big from prepping the range on a work day, rebuilding all the targets to calling the line, Match Directing the paper, scorecards, handling the results line by line, handing out awards, sending in results and handling the money. Match Director Dave Wilson, (and Phylis), David Keys calling the line, Ken Gaby working results and many more helping hands made it look smooth and effortless. All the competitors had to do was show up and shoot. Big thanks owed for the efforts of the few on behalf of the many. Panola in Texas in May is the best place to shoot.....anywhere.
Because of the good early sunlight, we started at 600. Ben Brooks scoring.
Big Brother is watching...and keeping score. Tony Miller at 600.
