Our Rifle Match Co-Ordinator likes to start the new year off right, so we have a match every 1st of January. Maybe he thinks it brings him luck. I didn't participate in the center fire match, but did in the 100 yd rimfire class.

Somehow, even in all the wind & occasional sprinkle, I managed to eck out a 1st place win with a 311-4x score. I didn't expect to even hit the paper with the windy gusty day that it was. Several times our wind speed/direction flag was knocked over & had to be placed back upright during the match. It was REALLY blowing something fierce at times.

All in all I was rather pleased as I beat the match master who had a score of 266 really well. It always pleases me to out score him as he always says something like, "OH!
