Congratulations to Camp Pendleton Open winner Justin Skaret! The winning score was 1465-56X, this is his third victory in this tournament.

The Sunday 1000 point was won by Bob Gill, his score was 979-38X.

Thanks to everyone who came out for the match. Special thanks for all those who traveled long distances to attend. We had a strong Arizona contingent this year. Jake Stadler came all the way from Texas to attend the match and he went home with the Expert Class medal as a well earned reward. It is noteworthy that he did this with a borrowed rifle and no zeros!

I also wanted to say thanks to Harry for running the match so well and also for all the fine trophies he worked so hard to get for the match. I don’t know of any other match in California that offers beautiful trophies like these for all the stage and aggregate winners.
