I plan on looking at some data that was collected by Bob, the match manager. But it should have been in the high 30's. Probably 38T.

On our first match it was in the 40's. We toned it down some since then.

The highest rated target at this match was a 50T (before wind multipliers). If we use the full wind multiplier, then it was a 63T. Even though the winds reached as high as 20mph late Sunday, many of the targets are protected to some degree. And the average winds were probably only about 6mph. At times there was almost no wind. So it depends on when you shot a particular target.

The lowest was about a 20T before wind or offhand factors.

The West course had a lot of long shots (50+ yards) with 1.5" and 2" kill zones. The East course had nothing past 45 yards but there were a lot of 3/8" and 1/2" targets at the closer distances.

I think the course was about right for a Grand Prix match.

The Western States Field Target Championships were held by the Morro Bay Airgunners at the SLSBA range this last weekend on the 17th and 18th of August, 2013. We had near perfect California Central Coast weather with temperatures in the high 70's for most of the match. We set a moderate difficulty course expecting the typical winds that usually arrive in the later mornings. We were not dissappointed in that respect. The average winds were what we hoped for though some of us slow pokes finishing on the far lanes had brief periods of 20mph winds to deal with.

We wanted a match of at least 20 people and planned the courses to handle 60. We ended up with 44 shooters. The availability of the shower at the neighboring Cowboy Action range encouraged more people to camp out at the range. One thing that shooters enjoy as much as competing, and that is eating. We planned food for 50 but quickly realized that with all the campers spending the nights, that would not be enough. We adapted. Having all meals available at the course allows us to have a one stop event where no one has to drive anywhere from Friday through Sunday. That gives us maximum time to practice, compete, eat, and just shoot the bull. I planned on having the best match with just a modest entry fee in order to attract the most shooters possible. A number of the members of the SmallBore club donated their time to make sure that our needs were met. That effort, along with the generous donations by those attending allowed us make it all possible and stay well in the black. Excess contributions will be used by the club to further improve the facilities.

We are already making plans to improve things for the 2014 Western states Match. We hope to have a full house. Look for the registration to be posted on this web site in January of 2014.

Thanks Motorhead. You saved me some effort.
