Match results for the 600yd 45rd Fullbore match held today in East Wenatchee, WA.

The event went well after a bit of stuttering initially as people got acclimated to the Fullbore match format combined with the alternative (new) scoring system. Temps into the low to mid 80's, winds were moderate, 8-12mph w/ occasional gusts to 15+, and the direction swinging from 7-9 o'clock with some regularity. I know I had from as little to 1.5 moa to as much as 3.5 moa of wind on the gun (shooting a .308) throughout the day. Just fast enough the mirage wasn't much help, and the flags were close to maxed out as well. Definitely made things... interesting ;)

Two sling shooters battling it out for Match Winner, two people shooting 'Other' - a little father-daughter competition going on there, and not quite enough F/TR or F-Open shooters to break either one out as a separate class. All in all a nice little match - I think good fun was had by all.

Thanks to all who showed and helped make the match a success.
