    2015 LV-HV AZ State Championships Results

    A great big thanks goes out to all who attended the first match of this year’s AZBRS season! The 2015 LV-HV Arizona State Championships was held on October 3-4, 2015 at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility in Phoenix, AZ. We had a total of 22 competitors that came out this month, including one that came all the way from Finland. This was a challenging match to start off this season, with weather that caused quite a challenge for our shooters.

    Saturday’s 100 yard matches started off Sunny and with a little wind, allowing some very nice low teen groups to be shot. As the day progressed, wind picked up a little bit, with some light gusts here and there. We were thrilled to see one of our resident junior shooters, Tony DeBacco, rank 2nd on the Light Varmint 5 shot 100 yard matches with a 0.2318” agg, just slightly behind Bench Rest Hall of Famer, Gary Ocock’s 0.2156” agg.

    As Sunday began, the weather decided to give us a challenging day. The morning started with gusty winds and intense rainfall that proved quite challenging to even the most seasoned bench rest shooters. Looking over the Heavy Varmint 200 yard Match 1 scores, you can see half of the competitors shot groups over an inch. Our target crew brought back every target soaked that match! Finland Bench Rest shooter Janne explained that he enjoys shooting when the weather is challenging, because it makes it more competitive and fun.

    Even though weather began harsh, the day ended with the sun shining and happy faces. Joe Pipola took first with a convincing 0.2894” 2-gun agg, followed by Dana Andrus with a 0.3086” agg and Gary Ocock with a 0.3095” agg. Very impressive aggs considering the gusty winds this weekend!
    We look forward to seeing everyone out for the 2nd part of Arizona State Championships next month on November 7-8, 2015. Remember, even if you missed this first match, you can still be part of our Ironman Agg if you make it to the remaining 6 matches this season!
