Seventh Elmer Fudd Annual Hunter Match

The Seventh Elmer Fudd Hunter match was an absolute blast. We had 19 competitors that showed up in spite of a so-so forecast and I think we ended up with some real nice October weather. The trees were in full colour and lots of leaves covered the ground as well.
The match itself was pretty tough with lots of targets out from 40 to 55 yards. The wind in the woods was enough to make you wonder what affect it would have. Out on the sight-in range the wind was pretty brisk, but the wooded course cuts it by half or more.
There certainly were a lot of close scores, as you can see on the chart, and two shoot-offs. Shoot-offs are always great to watch, but can be a little nerve wracking to be part of. One of our new shooters made it to a shoot-off, which is impressive.
After the match and shoot-offs were done, we dug into the chilli, rice and Italian bread with butter. Judging by how much disappeared, folks were hungry and enjoyed the meal. Hot chocolate was at the ready all day and a big platter of cookies finished off the meal. The awards were handed out as we finished up the meal.
A big thank-you goes to Angie for helping me out with the registration and food preparation. Thanks also to Deb, who took some great pictures and helped Angie with the set-up of the meal and clean up afterwards.
Thanks to the guys who set up and tore down lanes for the match. I was going to come back Sunday to get my targets, because it was getting late and a little dark, but my targets had already been brought up to the shooting boxes and all I had to do was pack them away and wind up the strings, about a ten minute job. Thanks for that; relaxing on Sunday was much better than having to drive out to the club again and pull the targets.
A big thanks goes to all who attended the match, since it is everyone that makes the Fudd match so enjoyable. People did not seem to be in a rush to leave and we had some great laughs and conversation. In reviewing the rules, it seems that the hunter division is working well just the way it is and no changes were suggested.
Now we head into the indoor winter season, with the first Pistol FT match at Burlington on November 30, 2014. I am looking forward to seeing many of the outdoor FT shooters and also those that like to, or are only able to, attend the indoor matches. Get those pistol rigs ready to go!

I had a great time at this event.
I'm constantly amazed at the work that Tim obviously puts into these events which is a huge part in what makes them so enjoyable.
And to those people who come in the morning of the event to set up their lanes -- bravo! The variety of the lanes is just amazing to me.

A great event! Special thanks to Tim, Ted, and Dean for coaching the two "newbies". Andrew and I enjoyed ourselves tremendously and will definitely be back for future events.

Cheers
