John,
Thank You for your 16 years as Match Director for Rimfire Benchrest at CCRPC. Glad you will be still shooting at the matches and that Peter Wass is taking over as match director. I enjoy shooting the matches at Capital City as I Summer 15 miles from the range.
Enjoyed your last match and hope to see you next Summer.

Congradulations on the great attendance you have at the matches. Your doing something right!

Great shooting everyone! At least my gun did well, the only trouble I wasn't shooting it. Mike shot my gun with three different lots that didn't shoot well at the Worlds 2 weeks ago. I shot killer ammo but that was 100 degree +. It doesn't shoot at 70 degree. $1200.00 mistake!
Congradulations to Gary and Mike on the only 250's.

John,

Sorry to hear you're finally passing the torch, but I fully understand since I did the same at the end of last year. My problem was, I didn't have anyone to give it to. And you are to be commended on the job you have done over your turn at the helm. I mean, look at the attendance just for this match. I rarely saw 15 shooters come to Pinnacle unless it was at a State Shoot, and even then, there were only 3 times in 15 years when we saw any more.

Paul,

That's too bad about the ammo, especially since it cost us so much just to be in S.C. anyway. I have always cautioned shooters against testing, then buying any large quantities of ammo when the temps are below 50, so I guess it stands to reason that the same would hold true when things are reversed and the temps are over 100. Maybe you can recover some of your investment by selling it to one of the warm-weather shooters from down south.

John,

Wow! 16 years as an MD is to be commended! I think the job of being a match director is the only job I've ever had that no one else wanted:) I keep hoping someone young and energetic will come along, so I can put it off on him, er uh, I mean pass it along to him.:) Just joking, kinda. Great job of hanging in there and providing a service to the rimfire communtiy for such a long stretch. I'm sure they all apreciate you for the work you've done.
