NEWSLETTER SEPTEMBER 2007
Our August monthly
match was honchoed by The Powder
There has been a lot of discussion here and there about power factors and knock-down targets lately, so the Rangers tried an experiment with an all knock-down stage. We made a number of interesting discoveries: targets should not be at too much of an angle – the difficulty factor is multiplied considerably when they are; even with heavy “wart hog” loads, targets must be hit to fall; knock-downs are big fun, but quite time consuming (average time for a total of 23 targets was around three minutes). Every one had the opportunity to reload and pick up any targets still standing or use the shotgun at the end for final clean-up. We will likely try this again next year with a few less targets and apply the lessons we learned.
After the main match,
As usual we had a
good set-up crew on Friday evening.
Thank you Snowy Creek Angel, Desperado James, Snowy Owl, Rusty S. Pots,
Our final match of the 2007 season will be our annual pot luck on Saturday, September 22nd. The Rangers will supply fried chicken and everyone should bring something to share (chips, dessert, potato salad, baked beans…) Don’t forget your drinks, plates, napkins and utensils. We look forward to finishing the 2007 season in the same spirit of fun and friendship we have shared since April.
As always, we’d like to hear from you if you have thoughts or ideas to help us do a better job. Keep up with the Rangers on the Bears Ears Sportsman Club (BESC) web site at: www.bearsears.org.
