Hey all,
ASC will have our next FT match on Saturday November 21, 2020 (the 3rd Saturday of the month). This match will be 60 shots using 3 targets per lane. The start time will be 10:00am to allow time for it to warm up a little. The only reason I will cancel the match is if it is raining (drizzle doesnít count).

As per our last match in October and other FT matches, we will follow COVID guidelines for this match, so please adhere to these if you wish to participate:
∑      Follow social distancing guidelines from Tarrant County and the State of Texas before, during and after shooting.
∑      We prefer that you wear a mask while at the range, if not for your protection then to protect others.
∑      I have a bottle of hand sanitizer, but please bring your own just in case.
∑      We will have one shooter per lane unless more than 15 show up, and then we will have 2 shooters per lane.  You will be on your honor to record your scores appropriately if shooting solo. Maintain distance while shooting and scoring.
∑      No water or snacks or lunch will be provided, bring your own.

Gates will open at 7:30 for sight in and sign up.
Safety meeting at 9:45. Rifle match to start at 10:00.
All rifles must be in a case or rifle carrier when moving between lanes.

ASC November 2020 FT Match Results
« Reply #61 on: November 21, 2020, 11:19:24 PM »
This was our next to last match for 2020.  We had to move it forward one week as is the tradition, because the normal 4thSaturday match schedule falls just after Thanksgiving.  Based on feedback from last month, I turned up the Troyer rating for this match to challenge the shooters a little bit.  Terry painted and organized the targets and then we spent part of Friday setting all of them out and arranging them in challenging positions for the shooters the next day.
There were 8 lucky shooters at the match on Saturday morning, and it was I must say a perfect fall day in Texas with temps in the 70ís.  This match used all 10 of the lanes in our wooded 3D archery course with 3 targets per lane including the offhand and kneeling lanes.  The average Troyer was 32.2, SD 6.87, Avg Dist 29.8 yds, and Avg KZ 1.03Ē.  Terry and I placed many targets in locations that required the shooter to fire through and between trees, under and through dark branches and barrels, and also required them to relocate their seating position to shoot at all 3 targets on a lane.  To get to 32 Troyer, I chose to use many targets with small KZís rather than longer distances, but I did put a kneeling target out at 43 yards just to be devious.
At the end of the match, I finished with the match high score of 56/60 in WFTF PCP.  Faisal Khan finished 1st in Hunter PCP with a 54/60, besting Terry Vanpool who was oh so close with a 53/60 and Paul Kocurek with a 49/60.  Eric Pianori finished 1st in Hunter Piston with a 37/90 and Scott Cotton finished 2nd with a 27/60.  Vance Lowe finished 1st in Open PCP with 52/60 and Cliff Montgomery finished 2nd with a 41/60.   View the full list of all competitorsí scores and equipment below.
Once again, for all of you that couldnít make it out this time, I want you to know that we maintain social distancing while shooting and take other precautions to keep everyone safe.  If there is anything missing or something that could be improved for an upcoming match, please let me know.  Iíd like to invite any of you reading this out to shoot and try field target even if you donít own an air rifle, because we have some to loan you to shoot with.  Just let me know ahead of time and we can plan for you to shoot with someone experienced.  Weíd love to have you join us.  We will have our next match the 3rd Saturday in December (19th) instead of the normal 4th Saturday due to Christmas.

See you at the next match,

Good morning everyone,

ASC will have our next FT match on Saturday January 23, 2021 (the 3rd Saturday of the month). This match will be 60 shots using 3 targets per lane. The start time will be 10:00am to allow time for it to warm up a little. The only reason I will cancel the match is if it is raining (drizzle doesnít count), or if I get little to no response for attendance from yaíll.  There is a chance of rain all week, ending on Saturday and Iíll keep a close eye on that.  Our recent changes to the shooting boxes with gravel mean that we can shoot even if the ground is wet. 

As per our recent FT matches, we will follow COVID guidelines for this match, so please adhere to these if you wish to participate:
∑      Follow social distancing guidelines from Tarrant County and the State of Texas before, during and after shooting.
∑      We prefer that you wear a mask while at the range, if not for your protection then to protect others.
∑      I have a bottle of hand sanitizer, but please bring your own just in case.
∑      We will have one shooter per lane unless more than 15 show up, and then we will have 2 shooters per lane.  You will be on your honor to record your scores appropriately if shooting solo. Maintain distance while shooting and scoring.

Gates will open at 7:30 for sight in and sign up.
Safety meeting at 9:45. Rifle match to start at 10:00am.
All rifles must be in a case or rifle carrier when moving between lanes.
Please note that it is a club rule that all shooters wear appropriate EYE protection. We don't have extras so remember to bring your own.

FT Match Report Arlington Sportsmanís Club 01/23/2021
Welcome to our first match for 2021! As it turns out, this is the first match in over a month for North Texas due to cancelations for holidays and the weather.  I could tell many folks were itching to shoot, because we had 13 shooters today from as far away as Tulsa and Boerne, even though the forecast was for cold and drizzly weather.   Everyone was thankful that the weather didnít turn out as bad as had been predicted.  This match used 10 of the 15 lanes in our wooded 3D archery course with 3 targets per lane including the offhand and kneeling lanes. The average Troyer was 29.4, SD 4.97, Avg Dist 28.0 yds, and Avg KZ 1.03Ē again. Once again, Terry, Scott and I placed many targets in locations that required the shooter to fire through and between trees, under and through dark branches and barrels, and also required them to relocate their seating position to shoot at all 3 targets on a lane.  The two standing shots at 11 and 15 yards on targets with 5/8Ē KZís elicited lots of comments from shooters.  On this same lane, shooters had to shoot the 1st target through a crook in a tree, then move to the right and shoot the 2nd and 3rdtargets through and over some ground cover.
At the end of the match, I finished with the match high score of 57/60 in WFTF PCP again. Ron Robinson finished 1st in Hunter PCP with a 52/60, besting Terry Vanpool with a 47/60 and Dave Cole from Tulsa with a 45/60. Mark Welker, also from Tulsa, finished 1st in Hunter Piston with a 45/60 and Eric Pianori finished 2nd with a clse 42/60.  View the full list of all competitorsí scores and equipment below.
Once again, for all of you that couldnít make it out this time, I want you to know that we maintain social distancing while shooting and take other precautions to keep everyone safe. If there is anything missing or something that could be improved for an upcoming match, please let me know. Iíd like to invite any of you reading this out to shoot and try field target even if you donít own an air rifle, because we have some to loan you to shoot with. Just let me know ahead of time and we can plan for you to shoot with someone experienced. Weíd love to have you join us. We will have our next match the 4th Saturday in February (27th).
See you at the next match,

March Field Target Match at ASC is Saturday 27th
« Reply #64 on: March 21, 2021, 10:38:15 PM »
Good evening everyone,
The March Field Target match at ASC will be this next Saturday March 27, 2021 as usual on the 4th Saturday of the month. Many people are getting vaccinated and the Governor has lifted the mask mandate, so I really hope that I will see many of my old friends back out at the range for a match.  If youíve been keeping up with my match reports, you should see that we are striving to maintain social distancing while shooting to minimize the risk of Covid transmission.

This match will be 60 shots using 3 targets per lane. The start time will be 10:00am.

As per our recent FT matches, we will follow COVID guidelines for this match, so please adhere to these if you wish to participate:

  • Follow social distancing guidelines from Tarrant County and the State of Texas before, during and after shooting.
  • You are encouraged to wear a mask, but that is not a requirement.
Gates will open at 8:00 for sight in and sign up.
Safety meeting at 9:45. Rifle match to start at 10:00am.
All rifles must be in a case or rifle carrier when moving between lanes.

FT Match Report Arlington Sportsmanís Club 03/27/2021
The March FT match was the largest one, with 16 shooters, since January of 2020!  Friends are coming back to join us for matches now that theyíve got their COVID vaccinations and Texas has lifted the mask mandate.  It sure made me smile to see so many friends gathered together (no closer than 6 feet!) doing something we all love.  John Tafoya (JT) from Kennedy TX joined us in his second FT match.  John shoots Silhouette, Extreme FT, NRL, and other things with his airguns, but recently caught the FT bug.  Welcome JT, and we hope to see you often.  This match used 10 of the 15 lanes in our wooded 3D archery course with 3 targets per lane including the offhand and kneeling lanes.  In preparation for the Cajun Grand Prix match in April, I increased the average Troyer to 33.0, SD 5.43, Avg Dist 32.6 yds, and Avg KZ 1.07Ē. Once again, Terry, Scott and I placed many targets in locations that required the shooter to fire through and between trees, under and through dark branches and barrels, and also required them to relocate their seating position to shoot at all 3 targets on a lane. I also placed some targets in shaded areas, one of them in a completely dark barrel, to replicate lanes from the Cajuns.  I heard more than a few complaints about the dark target and not being able to see it, and that meant I had done my job.  The first kneeling shots at 14 yards on a target with 5/8Ē KZís also elicited lots of comments from shooters. 
At the end of the match, we gathered under the awning to write down the scores and commiserate on the difficulty of the course.  Ron Robinson finished 1st in Hunter PCP with a 46/56, besting Terry Vanpool with a 43/56 and Jim Clarke with a 40/56. Faisal Kahn finished 1st in Hunter Piston with a 27/56,  Cliff Montgomery finished 1st in WFTF Piston with a 25/56, I finished 1st in WFTF PCP with a 33.56, and finally Mike Vredenburg finished 1st in Open PCP and Overall High score of 48/56 after having not shot his air rifle in over 1 year. Amazing shooting Mike! View the full list of all competitorsí scores and equipment below.
Once again, for all of you that couldnít make it out this time, I want you to know that we maintain social distancing while shooting and take other precautions to keep everyone safe. If there is anything missing or something that could be improved for an upcoming match, please let me know. Iíd like to invite any of you reading this out to shoot and try field target even if you donít own an air rifle, because we have some to loan you to shoot with. Just let me know ahead of time and we can plan for you to shoot with someone experienced. Weíd love to have you join us. We will have our next match the 4th Saturday in April (24th).

Good evening everyone,
 

 The April Field Target match at ASC will be this next Saturday April 24, 2021 as usual on the 4th Saturday of the month.  At the last two FT matches in DFW, I've seen many shooters and friends return to competition that I havenít seen in about a year.   I encourage all of you who havenít been out in a while to come and join us in our next socially distanced event this weekend.

 Gates will open at 7:30 for sight in and sign up.
 Safety meeting at 9:15. Rifle match to start at 9:30am.
 All rifles must be in a case or rifle carrier when moving between lanes.

ASC FT Match Saturday June 26, 2021
« Reply #67 on: June 18, 2021, 09:12:42 PM »
Good evening everyone,

This is a reminder that the May Field Target match at ASC will be this coming Saturday May 22, 2021 as usual on the 4th Saturday of the month.  The weather is supposed to be rainy all week, with a 30% chance of light rain on Saturday.  I will be keeping an eye on the weather forecast, and if it continues to look bad or gets worse, I will send out an email on Friday morning notifying everyone that the match is cancelled.  We will shoot in light rain or sprinkles, so bring your rain jacket and boots.
 
We continue to see a resurgence in attendance that rivals our pre-Covid levels.   I encourage all of you who havenít been out in a while to come and join us in our next socially distanced event this weekend.  As per our recent FT matches, we will follow COVID guidelines for this match, so please adhere to these if you wish to participate:
  • Follow social distancing guidelines from Tarrant County and the State of Texas before, during and after shooting.
  • You may wear a mask, but that is not a requirement.
This match will be 56 shots using 3 targets per lane. There will be 2 forced position (kneeling and standing) lanes.  I anticipate that the Troyer will be about 30-31, so a little more difficult than last time.
 
The start time will be 9:30am.
Gates will open at 7:30 for sight in and sign up.
Safety meeting at 9:15. Rifle match to start at 9:30am.
All rifles must be in a case or rifle carrier when moving between lanes.
Please note that it is a club rule that all shooters wear appropriate EYE protection. We don't have extras so remember to bring your own.

FT Match Report Arlington Sportsmanís Club 06/26/2021
Guest match report by Chris this month since I was unable to attend.
Twelve brave competitors came to challenge the heat for the June Field Target Match.  Luckily, the high had only reached 91F by the time the match was over the and targets were put away.  Kudoís to Jeff for designing and setting up a great course.  Numerous comments regarding the balance of challenging and difficult shots.  Great praise for not having to shift position to be able to see all of the targets on the lane. (I am not a devious Match Director ALL the time Ė Jeff) Once again, Terry painted the targets and checked them for proper operation. This course was 10 lanes with 56 shots.  The average Troyer this month was 30.1, SD 5.10, Avg Dist 30.4 yds, and Avg KZ 1.07Ē.
David Alsup was the high overall of the day with score of 52.  After the match David provided some comments regarding his choice to shoot in the lower powered (12 foot pound) WFTF class noting better accuracy, better shot cycle and smoother overall reaction of the rifle.

Second high overall for the day was Mike V. turning in another spectacular performance and claiming 51 targets.

Hunter PCP was the most numerous and contested class for the day.  Faisal K. was the high overall with a 49.  Faisal was working on fine tuning his sons rifle and was happy with the performance of himself and the rifle.  C Simmons was second.  Rick C. came in third with a 46. (I believe Rick cleared most of the lanes but the forced positions tripped him up this match).

Great thanks to Terry V., Chris S., and Scott C. for help in the running the match and the putting away of the targets, etc.  Thanks for all the help guys. - Jeff
We will have our next match the 4th Saturday in July (24th) starting at 9:00am to beat the heat.

See you at the next match,

Good evening everyone,

This is a reminder that the July Field Target match at ASC will be next Saturday July 24, 2021 as usual on the 4th Saturday of the month.   You don’t want to miss this match, because we’ve got some more Okies coming down to visit, since we have been going up to shoot at their match in OKC on the 3rd Saturday each month. There may even be a little friendly rivalry going concerning our mutual state-shaped targets.  We have an Oklahoma-shaped target on loan from David Carlile!   
 
As per our recent FT matches, we will follow COVID guidelines for this match, so please adhere to these if you wish to participate:
  • Follow social distancing guidelines from Tarrant County and the State of Texas before, during and after shooting.
  • You may wear a mask, but that is not a requirement.
This match will be 56 shots using 2 targets per lane. There will be 2 forced position (kneeling and standing) lanes.  I anticipate that the Troyer will be about 30-31 again.  No need to make it tougher if no one is cleaning it.
 
The start time will be 9:00am.

Gates will open at 7:30 for sight in and sign up.
Safety meeting at 8:45. Rifle match to start at 9:00am.
All rifles must be in a case or rifle carrier when moving between lanes.
Please note that it is a club rule that all shooters wear appropriate EYE protection. We don't have extras so remember to bring your own.

FT Match Report Arlington Sportsmanís Club 07/24/2021

We had 20 competitors came to challenge the heat for the July Field Target Match!  We had 7 shooters from Oklahoma (OKC and Tulsa) cross the Red River to shoot with us.  I think the recent internet jabs (all in good fun) and also the fact that some of us Texans have been going to the OKC match helped encourage them to shoot with us.  We started at 9:00am to try and beat the heat, but that was to no avail as it was 95 and humid by the time we finished at 12:30.  Luckily almost all the shooting boxes are in the shade!  I setup the course with 2 targets per lane and strived to have varied distances and difficulties between lanes. I also had time to add a 13 foot high elevated target this month so that we have a balance of up and down shots.  I received numerous positive comments regarding the balance of challenging and difficult shots and the elevated shots.  I got more than a few complaints about the three very dark targets spread out on the course.  Some of those were on purpose and some were by accident.  All I can say is that I will try to make them more visible, but these kinds of targets appear at other FT venues and Grand Prix, so perhaps it is also good for shooters to practice.  :^)  Once again, Terry painted the targets and checked them for proper operation.  This course was 14 lanes with 56 shots.  The average Troyer this month was 31.2, SD 6.34, Avg Dist 30.4 yds, and Avg KZ 1.08Ē, which is almost the same as last month.
David Alsup was the high overall of the day with score of 53.
Hunter PCP was once again the most numerous and contested class for the day with 15 shooters.  1st place was Rick Cuccio from Tulsa with an outstanding 48/56 shooting his Benjamin Marauder, barely edging out 2nd place was Paul Walker who shot 47/56 with his Thomas.  Right  behind these 2 was Dan Rowe in 3rd with 46/56 using his Daystate Redwolf.  This was one of our closest FT matches that I can remember with the top 10 shooters within 6 points of each other (there were numerous ties as shown below). 
In Hunter Piston, Mark Welker edged out Eric Pianori with an excellent 36/56.
In WFTF PCP, David Alsup beat me with 53/56 and match high score as already mentioned.
You can see all of the other scores and the equipment used in the table below and some pics of the match below that. 
We will not have a match in August, but will resume in September on the 4th Saturday (September 24th) starting at 9:00am to beat the heat.  Remember that the Republic of Texas Field Target Grand Prix will be the 4th weekend (Fri, Sat, Sun) of October, so mark your calendars and be sure to come out and shoot.

See you at the next match,
