    AZBRS LV-HV Season Closing Match Results

    We would like to thank everyone for coming out to the 2015 LV-HV Season Closing Match at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility in Phoenix, AZ. We had a total of 24 competitors from 6 different states (AZ, CA, CO, IN, NM and TX) come out to compete at the last match of this season. Four of these competitors were junior shooters, the most we have had at one of our matches this season. We were excited to see Matt Crowell come out for his first bench rest match. This was a great match to end the season, with beautiful weather and very little wind all weekend long.

    Saturday’s 100 yard matches started off with Bob Brackney in the lead with a 0.2146” agg in the Light Varmint class, then ended with Chuck Miller taking a commanding lead in the Heavy Varmint class with a 0.1802” agg. On Sunday Chuck fell behind though due to four crossfires during match 3 of the Heavy Varmint 200 yard agg. Chuck showed true sportsmanship though, and didn’t let the penalties get to him, finishing match 4 and 5 as the small group winners. At the end of the day, Lou Murdica came in first with a 2-gun agg of 0.2630” with Ed Adams and Bob Brackney right behind him with 0.2676” and 0.2872” aggs. Out of the four juniors, Garrett Atkins took top place with a 0.3378” agg.

    This match was especially exciting because it was the last one in the Ironman Agg. The Ironman Agg combines the shooters six best two-day aggs over the season (Oct-April), with hall of fame shooters having their own division where they compete for a trophy. Everyone watched closely as the top three competitors all came close to beating each other out for the ironman. It came down to the very last day of the season as to who would end up taking home the trophy. In fact, the Ironman Agg was so close, that one small calculation mistake actually shifted around the top three spots. Upon returning to the shop, we quickly found our mistake and informed those that it affected.

    We are proud to announce that the Ironman Agg winner for the 2014-2015 season is Bob Brackney with an agg of 0.2598” over six different two-day competitions. That’s 120 matches! Right behind him was Chuck Miller with a 0.2616” agg and Larry White with a 0.2618” agg. An honorable mention goes to Tony DeBacco as well, he was the only junior shooter to attend enough matches to quality for the Ironman, and we were happy to have him here all season long. Hall of Fame shooters had their own division of the Ironman Agg. In the end, Gary Ocock took the trophy with a strong lead, achieving a 0.2448” agg over 120 matches. That is some great shooting on all of their parts!

    Thank you to everyone who attended for making this match a great one to end the season with!
