2011 Legacy Match


The 2011 Legacy Team Match will be held on Sunday 13 March 2011 at Rio Salado Sportsman' Club in Mesa
This is a four shooter 200yd reduced target team match with all proceeds going to fund the AZ Junior Rifle Team's trip to The National Matches at Camp Perry OH.  That means the Juniors do all the pit pulling.  The $25 per shooter entry fee includes lunch in the Rio clubhouse after the match.
Who wants to go?
There is a limit of 15 teams so entries need to be made ASAP.
After the rain-out of Washington's Birthday, here's a chance to double-down.

Bowling Pin Match Report 2/13/11

Today's match went very well, though turnout was down, I believe, because of Valentine's Day.  We had ten shooters with 22 guns, and everybody brought (or borrowed) a .22!  I never expected the rimfire class to be the most popular, but it is.

We ran the match in the now-standard three-abreast mode, requiring one of the three shooters to win twice before moving on to the next group.  If I didn't have three shooters, we just went head-to-head with two.  You have to lose two sets to be eliminated from competition.

At the end of the day, we had an undefeated champion of centerfire, Jim Burnett.  He won Major with his Clark Custom pin gun, a 1911 in John Moses Browning's (pbuh) .45ACP, and Minor with a Beretta 92 chambered for the Europellet, going undefeated in seven matches over a total of seventeen tables, including two ties.  Since he couldn't shoot against himself for the spot of overall centerfire champion, we just gave it to him anyway.

In .22 class we had thirteen matches, and the finish was a doozy.  After the first round, only two of us remained undefeated, Travis Higgins and myself.  We lined up head-to-head, and I managed to eke out the win.  At the end of the day, it was again me against Travis.  To win the match, he would have to beat me on not two, but four tables.

He did.

But I had a lot of fun losing to him.

First round was downrange about 9:00AM, and we were packed up and leaving by about noon.  Everybody had a good time.  I'm looking forward to next month already!
