Paul: Thanks for posting the scores and pictures.

The season has ended at Capitol City, ME, and it's been our best-attended season. There have been lots of 250s shot, including two at this match. It's so difficult to shoot well here, due to the "bowl" effect, but Gary Hamilton and Paul both did it Saturday.

Conditions were pretty good, right up to the "Guns to the Line" command, then wind started up and mirage got bad, especially on the Westerly side. The second target on Relay 2 was no picnic, at least for me on bench #2, but it got a bit better for the third target on Bench #5.

Congrats to Dave Hamilton for his Club Championship and to Paul Bendix for his fine shooting. Mike Luce shot Paul's rifle/rest/ammo for the last two targets and did well enough with it to win Third place - Club Champ. Fine equipment makes for mighty fine shooting.

There's plenty of room for more shooters. I'd like to see more non-sanctioned Plinker shooters take up the sport, then move up to shoot Unlimited if/when they decide it's time. Plinker rifles are factory sporters with a few tweaks, but not the expensive "sanctioned Sporter-Class" rifles. I guess you can call it "Bench-light".

Congratulations on a fine year of shooting to all those who shot at Capital City. I have to say that scores in general sure have improved since I use to make trek up there, something I'm hoping to do again in the near future.

John, you've done well over the years not only in running the matches and attracting new shooters, but in improving your own scores. You are to eb commended.
