Sac Valley FT ... SVFTC MAY 2021 Match report
« on: May 24, 2021, 11:23:02 AM »
It is looking by in large the Covid restrictions are lightening up and folks are getting out to enjoys life's pleasures more. Saturdays SVFTC match in IONE was well attended having 19 able and willing shooters wishing to give it a go doing there best at not chipping the paint  ::) ... we all try !
Having a nice sunny and warm morning the match director was on site starting to set the course by 7:30 and had 3 lanes done when the troops started to arrive. Lots of help  getting the other lanes established, we end up with the equivalent of 15 lanes, tho only made 14 having our forced lane ( lucky 13) an 8 shot ordeal.   That being we set out 4 bell targets allowing shooters to take 1/2 kneeling. this worked out for those unable to kneel 8 Offhand shots !! or 4 + 4  ;D Evil match director !!
About a 1/2 hour of practice then our long winded safety and shooters meeting. ( We had 3 new shooters who never have shot FT )
Squads established having those new to the game shooting with someone experienced.  Also a somewhat recent trend is allowing shooters to take a few EXTRA shots FOR NO SCORE, if they had trouble figuring out how to windage dope the ever present IONE winds.  * This is IMO the only way one in going to learn to counter the wind ... BY DOING IT and seeing what it takes to hit the target.
Todays weather started out with just a mild breeze that for most shots you could take em straight in !  Well that calmness was fleeting by mid match which for some is all in a days work, while others started to struggle chasing where there shots were going.  * Yes indeed take a few extra NO POINT shots and figure it out  ;)
The match went w/o a hitch, no target malfunctions, No problems to resolve what so ever.  Lots of laughter and giggles along the shooting line with all having a good time.

Thank you Scott and all your helpers for setting another great course. It looks like there was enough shots to keep everyone engaged and happy, yet (when the winds came up) more than enough challenge to test the best of us. I think I got the luck of the draw and shot some of the longer lanes before the winds really came up. It was a beautiful day and it was really nice to see a lot of friends out enjoying our sport. I think the new shooters had some fun so hopefully we will see them again. Thanks to everyone who came out and supported the club, as long as you keep showing up we will keep putting on matches!
