Dennis and I are planning to head over in the morning. Dressing warm and hoping the rain stays away.

Dennis and I did go to the match and had a great time; thanks Sean.

It warmed up to a balmy 4 degrees C by the time we arrived and the wind was nice and brisk from the NE. So it was quartering over our right shoulder at the firing line, keeping my wind flag pretty well horizontal most of the time, but downrange, it was whistling from right to left most of the time. Out in the 50 yard range, I was holding over 2.5" or so and that is with Crosman Premiers shot at about 900 fps.

Sean said the Troyer factor was in the 39T area without wind factored in, with wind, I can only imagine. Let's just say it was a tough course.

Sean has another date set for November 14th, but that one will happen only if the weather cooperates. November can be nasty or quite nice, but you only get a few days lead time on which it will be. Stay tuned to see if it will be a go or gets cancelled.
