Central Ohio Airgunners Field Target Match July 14, 2019

Central Ohio Airgunners

Field Target Match July 14, 2019

The Central Ohio Airgunners hosted an Airgun Field Target Match at the Columbus Muzzleloaders Club. on July 14, 2019 It was a beautiful sunny day. The course was shaded, and comfortable.

 

There was a good turn out with a field of 27 shooters.   The south facing field was set up for a sixty-shot match by Eric Jones and his crew. I have included a copy of Eric’s course layout at the end of this report. I have also provided a link to an Excel spreadsheet that shows all the scores if anyone wants to dig into the details.

I recorded the range for my shots and then later compared them to the actual yardage. I’m still learning….. I have risen to a degree of mediocrity. Hey that’s an improvement, I’ve done worse. One of the tings I like about these matches is that it is not all about winning. One of the principles of a match is to create an atmosphere that is comfortable and supportive. Other shooters are willing to help each other, especially newcomers. I get new ideas for refining my shooting processes at every match. Nice folks, these airgunners…..

 

 

The event was well hosted. Set up was complete by the time we arrived a 9:30. The process flowed easily with a brief safety meeting and assignment of lanes. The match began and the targets worked flawlessly.  There was not a single cold line called. This was a very swell managed event. Everything went very smoothly. COA provided some tasty sliders for lunch had a exciting raffle with fabulous airgun related prizes. Thanks to the COA for the effort it took to host this event. Well done. All in all, it was a fun day at the shooting range.

 

Here is a unofficial summary of the results……

Nike Clark scored an impressive 54 to top the Hunter PCP Class. Roger Barker scored 47 in Open Class and Dan Puts had the top score in Spring Piston. Hero of the day had to be Vince Alessi who scored 42 in Spring Piston. Way to go Vince.

Here is an analysis of the results based on 25 shooters.  Cards for Vince Alessi and Dan Putz were missing. I think Vince is having his framed.

Lane 8, the Near target was tough, only 4 hits were scored. That is a 42 Troyer… tough shot. One Lane 8 almost everybody, 98%, scored.

I recorded the range for my shots and then later compared them to the actual yardage. I’m still learning….. One of the tings I like about these matches is that it is not all about winning. One of the principles of a match is to create an atmosphere that is comfortable and supportive. Other shooters are willing to help each other, especially newcomers. I get new ideas for refining my shooting processes at every match. Of course, with me there is lots of room for improvement. Nice folks, these airgunners…..
