2012 Local Match Results

July 2012

What a delightful, balmy day at the River Range last Sunday for the Multi gun match.  By the time of the Shooters Meeting, the temps had reached a mere 85, so jackets and sweat shirts were left in the car by most shooters.  Tear down was done early in the afternoon, in comfortable 103 degree sunshine.  I even felt a slight breeze once or twice during the day.

Weather notwithstanding, we scored 45 shooters, and to the best of my knowledge we lost no one to the heat.  Lots of water and Gatorade helped.  Thanks to Deb and her crew for a great match.

Results are attached.  The minus penalty on Stage 6 represents the bonus for the two disappearing clays.  Some folks are shown as shooting the entire stage in under 2 seconds.  Glad no one was faster, as I don’t think the scoring program will accept a minus time for a stage.

One shooter apparently misplaced a tool kit on the range on Sunday.  Black, zipper, CED logo.  If you found it, please “Reply” to this message and I will put you in contact.

Entries are coming in for the Arkansas Section Multi Gun at the end of September.  Form is attached.  Get your entry in soon, so you can squad with your choice of shooters.

Thanks to all.

What a great day at OFGC last Sunday.  Multi gun matches are fun, but few.  Deb and her Assistants did a great job.  You might see some of the stages, modified a little, at the Section Multi gun championship in September.

Our first effort at Time Plus scoring for Multi gun seemed to work.  Made the match go faster.

Results are a little different format than usual.  EZWinScore won’t support the “Copy” command for Time Plus scoring that we have used in the past.  Gayla talked to the folks at USPSA headquarters, and they said they will work on that issue, some day.  They know of the problem, but don’t seem to be in any hurry to fix it.  Multi gun seems to be the step child of USPSA, it took them years to modify the program to score Multi gun without the San Angelo method of manually entering penalties for major/minor power factor.  We also can’t upload the scores to the USPSA web site.

In any event, thanks to everyone who made the match, and thanks for the help with tear down.

Couple of “Lost and Found” items.  The Winchester shotgun left on Bay 4 was going to be a great bonus for me, like a Lost Brass match.  Unfortunately, Mitch claimed it, and was able to provide enough information to identify the gun, so I guess I will have to return it to the rightful owner.

I’ve also got a bracket that attaches the extended tube to the barrel of a shotgun.  If you lost one, let me know, with mailing address, and I’ll return it.
