We had another good turnout and some great weather for our Precision Match on Sunday with 25 shooters attending. This was our first match with the new class designation system (Master, Expert and Greenhorn) and the program was introduced seamlessly, providing opportunity for all 12 teams to compete for awards. The Chou Brothers were first again in the Master Class following up on their win last weekend at the NSCC Service Conditions Championship in Ottawa. Jason and Clay were first in the
Expert Class with Dave and Mike, brand new shooters to the ORA, winning in the Greenhorn Class. The detailed results are posted by Class.
Our Championship Match is currently scheduled for October 6th at Mons Range pending any changes. Look forward to seeing you there.
