OCTOBER 8, 2017 - MINTO CENTERFIRE BR and SPORTER - RESULTS

I haven't had much time since Sunday to post these results so they are a bit late - but here they are.
It was a beautiful day on Sunday - at least until the last couple of relays. Rain had
been forecast and it held off until then, but - Oh Boy! - did it come down. It rained so hard that targets flew off the backers and at least one target was so soaked it could barely be scored.

Conditions stayed at a warm humid level for the entire match. This was definitely not
what is usual for New Brunswick in October. The wind was also quite manageable until the end. Everyone had a good shoot and congrats go to John McC. who shot a 300/20X and Bert deV. who came second with a 300/18X.

Today, John McC. was the Match Director and score verifier with Don M. taking the lead in scoring. Targets were posted by George M., who was present for the pistol shoot which was to follow the centerfire match, and a crew of others who included Wayne K., Bert deV., Guy H., Bruce B.and John McC. The Range Safety Officers were Tony L., Bruce B., Wayne K., Dave C. and Bert deV. As usual, we enjoyed the cornucopia of treats brought by Shelly C. and John McC. (thanks Dorothy). Thanks to all who lent a hand today. We enjoyed the visit of Bert's sister Nine, from Toronto, and she, in turn, enjoyed the gang, the shooting and the treats!

OCTOBER 1, 2017 - PETITCODIAC CENTERFIRE CHAMPIONSHIP - PHOTO GALLERY














OCTOBER 1, 2017 - PETITCODIAC CF BR CHAMPIONSHIP - RESULTS

What a gorgeous day in New Brunswick. We are so lucky to have a fall like this with cool mornings (yes it was a bit frosty, near 0 degrees with frost definitely on the grass and on the windshields this morning and fog in low-lying areas), and warm afternoons. The temperatures rose to somewhere around 17C this afternoon. The sky was a light cool blue with no clouds in sight. The wind in Petitcodiac, usually quite a challenge, were benign and mostly from right to left but with lots of periods of relative quiet. If you waited for your condition to return you were rewarded with a good shot. Fifteen minutes were allowed per relay and this was lots of time to complete 10 counting shots.
The Match Director today was Volker T. who was the head scorer while Dan G. provided the verification of scores and stats. Targets were set and changed by Tony L., John McC., Brian P., Cecil H., Dan G., Darryl K. and Bert deV. The Range Officers for the match were Darryl K. and Bert deV. John C. provided for the wonderful lunch between the second and the last relays and Shelly C. brought the tasty treats for dessert. Thank you to everyone who made this match possible and such an enjoyable event.

We also want to extend a big welcome to Matt H. (and his wife) who came to shoot with us for the first time this year.

After the match was over and the scores were tabulated, everyone went to the club-house for the awards presentations. First a plaque was given to the Petitcodiac Centerfire Team that won the Terry McNeill First Annual Centerfire Match. Then a presentation of a plaque to Cecil H. who had the highest match score of the year in the regular season - 300/20X. John McC. was presented with a plaque for the highest single target score during the regular shooting season - 100/9X.

SEPTEMBER 24, 2017 - MINTO - 22BR OPEN AND SPORTER - RESULTS

Today was a gorgeous day for a shoot in Minto. The sun was out all day with no clouds anywhere. Temperatures went from about 4 to 24C - very unusually high temps for this time in September. 
The wind was from 0 to 20km/hr mostly from the left. This is misleading as most of the time it was non-existent or very light. The most important aspect of the wind was not its velocity but its direction - if you did not wait for your condition patiently enough and shot in a changing wind it would cost you a point. Surprise!!
Some very good scores were recorded and congrats go to Bert deV. for shooting a 400/22X.
Wayne K. was the Match Director and head scorer with Don M. and John McC. verifying the scores and the stats. The Range Officers were Cecil H., Barb J., John McC., and Bert deV. The Target Changers were George M., Guy H., Bert deV., John McC., Bruce B., and Barb J. Thanks to all for your help and thanks to Barb J. for all the good treats as well.
During the shoot, Don M. was presented with his Minto 300 Club Badge which were handed out while he was in Newfoundland.

SEPTEMBER 17, 2017 - THE MARTIN F. TOPF CHAMPIONSHIP - RESULTS

Today was the much awaited final 22BR shoot in Petitcodiac - the Martin F. Topf Rimfire Championship. We had spent the whole year qualifying for this championship and here it
was at last with perfect conditions.

The weather certainly co-operated with 20C in the afternoon, overcast skies and little or no wind at all. The shooting gods were definitely on our side.
Today, Volker T. was the Match Director and the head scorer. Dan G. did the score and stats verification. The Range Officers were Dan G., Darryl K. and John McC. Target changers were Dan G., John McC., Shelly C. and George M. The wonderful treats were brought by Shelly C., Barb J. and Dan G. Thanks to all.


Halfway through the match we went to the clubhouse to have a lunch provided by John C. and the Petitcodiac Sportsman's Club. As usual this was a very enjoyable time and increased our camaraderie while decreasing our tension regarding the match.

Speaking of the shooting, this was truly a very high level of shoot with the top 5 shooters all attaining a perfect 500. There was a lot of celebration after the scores were in as Barb J. shot a 500/29X; Dan G. shot a 500/28X; Darryl shot a 500/27X; Dave C. shot a 500/24X and Shelly C. shot a 500/22X. This was Barb's first win in a championship and Dave's first 500 score (he joins the ever expanding PSC 500 club). Congratulations to all winners!!
