    Steve Lee wins 2018 SE Regional 200 Yard, Roger Avery wins HV 200

    Not often I'm able to write "Steve Lee wins" but I did manage to pull off a win in Dublin.

    Let me start by saying July in Dublin GA is HOT!!! I think we'll pass on future July shoots in Dublin.

    Both mornings started with temps in high 70s and humidity over 90%. By 10 am temps were pushing 90 and by the end of shooting 95+ was the rule. Humidity did drop a bit during the day so at least it was a moist heat. Every once in a while the flag tails would twitch, but the shooters didn't feel much of it. Everyone looked like a wet washrag by the end of the day.

    Saturday morning in Unlimited 200 small group specialist Danny Morgan started out with .372. This was a 10 shot group with a bag gun! I managed to shoot consistently for 4 groups then finished with an ugly .805, but managed to pull out a win with an agg of .2616. Don Hardeman was second with .3062 and Manny Garcia finished third with .3103.

    Saturday afternoon in Heavy Varmint the mirage was vicious. Joe Bougard started out strong and was leading after three groups, but Roger Avery drilled a small group .255 in match 4 to take the lead and won with an agg of .2449. Joe finished second with .2647 and Don Hardeman was third with .2839.

    Sunday morning in Light Varmint Joe Bougard started strong and held the lead through match 3. In match 4 I managed to shoot a .371 and pull ahead winning with an agg of .1954. Joe was second with .2378 and Gary Sullivan, on the strength of his .194 small group finished third with .2440.

    Sunday afternoon in Sporter Manny Garcia started well with .491. In match 2 I managed .375 to take the lead and combined with 2 fours and a
    (yuck) seven managed to hang on and win the agg. Don Hardeman was second with .2548 and Joe Bougard finished third with .2575. In match 5 the small group specialist was back and Danny Morgan shot a pretty .295 to take small group.

    In the 4 gun I was first with .2634, Don Hardeman second with .2897 and Danny Morgan third with .3224.

    I'd like to congratulate Joe Bougard on some fine shooting. He didn't shoot Unlimited so he wasn't included in the 4 gun, but if you look at the three bag gun aggs he beat everyone handily with a .2533 agg.

    As usual many thanks to the excellent MGGOA crew, especially Matt Walker and Stump. This is the first time in many years that MGGOA, home of the Shamrock, has held a second shoot, and despite the low turnout Matt indicated he is willing to do it again, so we'll try to schedule something in the fall next year.

    Results are attached.

    yes I'll be there

    Unless there are unforeseen complications I will be there for a fall shoot at Dublin, just too old to sweat my nads off. One of the reason I stopped driving school bus was because of the hot and humid weather here in August when school started, and I was getting paid for my sweat and tears then.

    Next year the NBRSA Nats are in Phoenix in October, so September is open to schedule shoots. MGGOA is open to holding a shoot either in September or early November...maybe a 4 day 4 gun regional. I'd love to hear opinions on what they would like to see on the schedule, so SE Region Shooters...let me know what you would like.

    We could schedule shoots in October, but I probably couldn't attend since as a regional director I have to go to Phoenix. That's fine with me. Probably not many SE Region shooters will be going to Phoenix so you guy let me know what you want me to do.

    October would probably be best considering that River Bend has been in November, that way a few weeks break for the long distance travelers. Maybe it could be scheduled so some of the Eastern Region shooters might consider attending. Just my thoughts, September can still a little hot in my neck of the woods and I am a good bit North of Dublin.
