We finally had a lovely fine afternnoon and we even saw some faces that we hadn’t seen in a while. Welcome back Denis. We had 28 shooters for the afternoon.
Even though the afternoon was sunny and fine, North Arm showed us it’s fickle wind again, with conditions in the first stage, swapping from left to right, quite quickly. The wind was coming from behind, and it seems many shooters had elevation problems as well as trouble keeping up with the changes.
We saw only one possible the first range, and that came from Denis M in FO, with a 60.0. It appears the break from shooting hasn’t done him any harm. Denis went on to shoot a possible in the second stage 66.3, which took out Div 4(FO) for the afternoon, with the only double possible for the day. Dave B was second with a 123.8 and Peter C on 120.9 to round out the FO competitors.
Div 1(TRA) was a tight competition, with all of the shooters struggling with wind and elevation in the first round, top score was shared between Gary M and Scott R with a 46.2. With conditions settling further in the second stage, everyone shot much better, with Michelle F shooting a 54.7 and Scott and Gary both with a 53.5. Michelle took out the afternoon with a 99.8 narrowly defeating Scott and Gary each on 99.7.
Div 2 (TRBC) had two competitors for the afternoon, with Shane J shooting a 52.2 in the second stage to take out the day with a 94.4 from Tracey.
