I remember one of the first times I shot the match, shot with Brian Whalen. He missed either the first or second target of the day due to a mental error. He then proceeded to hit every single remaining target. Got 59/60, and I have no doubt he would have cleaned it if not for that one mental error. That guy can flat out shoot!!!Has anyone cleared the sporting match 60/60 yet?
Left NM years ago, just curious!
Great news about all the volunteers. What time do you plan to get started with Saturday a.m. setup - I'll try to make it.So far, conditions are looking good for next weekend. Only a little snow on the ground at both TWC and the target storage site. Based on the response we've received, it looks like we enough vehicles to haul the targets. We also have about a dozen people for setup on Saturday which should be adequate, but if you are inclined to help, a few more people would be welcome. Check back here before you leave in case a weather issue arises.
No sight in/dope check the prior day. Brief dope check usually available the morning of the match.Nice! Edited to add a question, again...
Is the Magnum version set up the same way with some sight in / dope checking the day prior? Just getting started with magnums and ELR and my opportunities to shoot past 1k aren't numerous.
Unfortunately the more shooters the longer the match. The match used to finish early in the afternoon but with the larger squads recently it has run into the early evening. Once the match is complete the directors and volunteers still need to take down some steel and lock up. Basically comes down to time issues.Not to criticize but why limit the number of shooters? I have shot it in the past and will shoot it in the future it’s a great run match. I would figure the more interest the better.
Is there any chance in moving the match to a Saturday so it wouldnt matter as much for traveling home to work the next day. I am sure this has already been considered just wondering.Unfortunately the more shooters the longer the match.

All of the above!!!!!Any policy in place for no shows? Banned for life, following match, tarred and feathered?
Shooters on the waitlist, me included, could have a spot if a deadline to cancel with a reasonable window is in place. This allows for the wait list competitors to make plans for the drive, hotel or whatever is required to make the event.
