Remarks: 
I would like to thank Ron Dumond for hosting our final CT State match.
 
I gave Ron the distances for the match and he laid out the course as he saw fit with 10 lanes.
Ron, I and Vasyl set up the course on Saturday morning. Ron had added some Halloween decorations to enhance the day’s event. Pumpkins, skull heads, foam tombstones, corn stalks, mums and even a spider was to be found moving from lane to lane.
 
It was raining when I drove to Ron’s house. Thankfully, it stopped raining just in time for the practice at 9 am. The forecast for the day was a partially cloudy day with winds up to 15 mph. The weather forecast was spot on. It was a perfect cold fall weather day.

Tom Holland had a leaky TM1000. He accepted my offer to shoot my LGU. We shared shooting my rifle for the match.
 
There was plenty of wind indicators. Leaves were falling from the trees. You hear the leaves rustling behind you. The blades of grass were swaying. The surveyor's flags were flapping.   
 
Lane 1 located on the north side of the property next to a stone wall and a row of trees was sheltered a little by the wind. The rest of the lanes had full exposure to the wind. I shot and got the short and middle targets by holding on the left or right side or edge the kill zones. I shot the far targets by holding off a few inches away from the kill zone.
 
I am happy to report there were no cold lines during the match. Before the start of the match, I had one target that failed with the use of the target tester. I was able to fixed it before the match started. The match went smoothly with seven two-man squads occupying seven of the ten lanes.
 
We ordered some pizzas for lunch. Most of us finished the rifle match by 12:45 pm. The pizzas arrived in time at 1 pm. After having everyone get their fill with food, I was able to quickly tally the scores and proceed with the rifle match awards. Congratulations to the first-place finishers who also got a custom face plate (bull silhouette).
 
After the rifle match awards, we then proceeded to setup the off-hand pistol course. I would like to thank the people who helped out quickly set up the pistol course. Shooting the pistol course did not take that long when you are shooting off-hand. Within half an hour we were done with 40 shots each.
Congratulations to John who received a custom prairie dog face plate for his efforts.
 
For all the people who attended our last outdoor match, a big thank you to all of you. I was happy that everything went smoothly despite the rain at start of the day.
 
Next match: Possible indoor standing and kneeling match (20 yards max) at Center Sports of Columbia in December.
 
Best Regards,
Leo Gonzales
