    Brady Knight Memorial -- Nov 10 & 11, 2018

    We had 28 shooters, including new-to-BR shooter Darrell Allen from AL, shoot the Brady Knight Memorial Tournament at River Bend on Nov 10th & 11th. Wilbur was on his way Sat AM but got called back to help a relative who needed assistance.

    The temp on my truck thermometer when I rolled in about 7:45 Sat AM was 32°; Sun AM it was 30°; I don't think it got above the mid-50s either day. The wind Sat was breezy enough to make it pretty uncomfortable.

    Scott Mims came to visit, and he looked great; clean-shaven and a nice haircut -- he looked like a banker. Jim Andress provided a nice low-country boil Sat night and roast beef sandwiches for lunch Sat and Sun. I can't imagine any other venues that treat you as nice as River Bend -- if you haven't been there you should try to do so one day.

    As for the shooting, Jeff Graves won three of the four aggs and won the two-gun with a .2156. I don't have the sheets that show the grand aggs and the two-gun; however, the attached should suffice for those calculations, if you're interested. Here's an interesting bit of trivia -- Glen Nelson started the shooting Sat AM with a nice screamer (.099); however, he put his second sighter shot in "No-Man's Land" in the middle of the target. (EDIT -- I got out my trusty calculator and sharpened my pencil and put together an "unofficial" two-gun list -- if you see any errors feel free to let me know.)

    Thanks to RBGC for providing this venue, and thanks to Jim Andress for running the match, Tee and Summer for fetching the targets, Bill Dittman for running the computer and managing the wailing wall, those of you who helped move the target frames, and to all the shooters for being there. It was a nice weekend.

    Dan, I don't know the answer to your question; however, see my revised post above.

    Dec Match Cancellation

    FYI -

    Subject: December Benchrest Cancellation

    Due to the forecast inclement weather (below 40* with rain) I don’t see any reason for anyone to brave the elements this Saturday.

    Hopefully, the Jan match (second Sat in Jan) will not be cancelled.

    It happens more often than you think, Zip.
    IBS cancelled a National match in South Carolina due to a hurricane. Well, the club cancelled, not IBS.

    Just so you know: River Bend is in north Georgia and we have a benchrest match every month of the year. The December, January and February matches typically feature brutal weather and we hardly ever cancel one.

    Bill I am also from Michigan and obviously he has forgotten what brutal truly is. I hauled steel up there for 37 years ending in 2007, I know brutal, this is not that. But that being said a person becomes acclimated after a period of time.

    Dan. I was in or near San Diego for 18 yrs. I have been back to the Great White North for 18 yrs.
    My nose gits cold if it's below 50°. Not sure about that acclimation stuff.....But, my house is 64° and I am sitting in shorts and t-shirt.....flip flops got stuck in the grass, picking up the newspaper this morn...prolly blown away this afternoon.....went out for a cigar at 1530 and it was 28°. Got the winter smoking jacket on, beanie, gloves,...etc. Dang it was cold.......

    Winter conditions?

    However this could be an opportunity that rarely presents itself for the latitude blessed folks in the south... good practice for conditions that might be found this upcoming summer in Alberta! 😎

    Hey, Dan,

    I remember Michigan winters very well. It's one of the reasons I moved from there to Georgia! You're right, though, about getting acclimated. After being here for 38 years, 40 degrees now seems cold. In our defense, though, there've been times when I've shown up for a match at River Bend and the temp was in the teens.

    I take it you'll be at our January match? Should bring back fond memories for you!

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I hope you can make it to more of our matches.

    You do not know what "COLD" is, EH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just ask the people out West, we get the occasional -20 but they get it for weeks at a time.
