The weather was brisk in the morning with winds up to 12 MPH. by the time the course was set, Ronnie looked up and there where 15 shooters talking air guns and the like. it sure where nice to see all the happy faces and nearly all the shooters entered into the NorCal Regional Grand Prix. WOW!!! what a nice surprise and thank you all for that on behalf of NorCal Air Gun Club. the event runs until December 1st.
what a great day and a very special surprise was when Jim C returned to the nest and brought Frank W ready to knock down some targets. also was when Jim P. brought his wife Louisa to cheer us on, and hopefully next time she can show us how its really done, and join in on the fun
it where apparent that a great many shooters where getting ready for the Moro Bay Spring Gun Match April 16th and 17th. it looks like these guys are ready!
The wind calmed down to a steady 6-7 MPH and gust to 10 plus with periods of light wind in between. a very challenging day but Jim c and Fred B didn't waiver with their spring guns ending with a pretty high score. they got teamed up and from start to finish it was neck and neck till the last lane when Jim C gave up an easier point on a crow target. thinking he had his chance at Fred, Fred takes his turn at the lane and does the same. tied again.
Gabriel brought two new shooters into the sport shooting WFTF, and has done a super fine job at getting them ready for competition. he has worked with Max and Badam quite a bit as everyone could tell.
Poor old Scott had only scored 2 points after the first 3 lanes. hats off to him for shrugging it off and coming on strong in the end.
the Crosman Challenge is going on as well. shooters get an additional 100 points if shooting in a Grand Prix according to Chip at Crosman, and all the scores if shooting a Crosman/Benjamin rifle will count for the Challenge as well.
Thank you everyone for attending and making the match a very special one. we are planning a BBQ at the next match. Ronnie is currently working on a calendar for The NorCal Regional Grand Prix to include all the dates and venues on one schedule. the plan is to post it in the next day or two.
