I got the packet and targets.  Shot it following the directions and mailed the targets back.  It was fun.  I found out how much fun/challenge it is at the age of 66 to into and change the shooting positions.  Getting old, but enjoyed it.  I made copies of the instructions/targets and gave them to Dewayne Liebrandt and Rex Young, plus I have one for Bob Swartz.

I finished shooting the match today.  It is a lot of fun but I don't remember getting into the different positions being so difficult.  The last time I shot in a high power match was a few years ago.  You would think that with all the rest I have been getting this would be easy.
I emailed the targets to Niederlander and looking forward to another one.

I feel ya', Ken!  It hurts my neck to be in prone, and I don't remember kneeling that difficult to get into.

 A note on how I'm scoring targets:  Since we're shooting reduced scale targets, often with pretty big bullets, I use the center of the bullet hole to score the shot.  I'll always give the higher value if it's close.

Remember, tomorrow, the 31st is the last day to get in the December Postal Match.  So far I've got results from seven shooters.  I'll post the results next weekend when I'm back from vacation.

Gents, the range where I could shoot 25 yards or greater, allow for bench (as shown or standing)
Prone or kneeling is not allowed.

My home gallery is 15-yard Max.

We can extend it by a week this time.  I won't be back in town to figure the results until Friday/Saturday anyway.  Remember, FABULOUS prizes are in play here!

....same here. It's wet, cold and muddy as F-+$. Sent a pm, I'll throw a couple bucks in an envelope for the targets. Until I can go to the range or my buddy's place. Otherwise, nowhere to safely shoot.

Gentlemen, I was out of town last week and sort of lost track of some stuff.  Did everyone that wants them get the target packets?  I'll figure and post the results for December today, and if you haven't shot yet I'll just put you in January's match.
