August 2014 XTC and Midrange results


I would like to thank everyone who came out to shoot with us for the August XTC and Midrange matches. The weather was a bit warm but otherwise we had very nice conditions for the matches on Range 116. I also want to thank those who hung in there Saturday morning while we were squaring things away with Range Control.  This can be a challenge sometimes but we are visitors in their house so sometimes we just have to grin and bear it as they validate that we have complied with all the range use requirements.

Congratulations to the Saturday XTC match winners, the scores were very close for the first three spots. Cpl. Jim Minturn took first place with a 750-14X. Bill Edwards was only one point off Jims pace and took second place with 749-13X. Third spot was wrapped up by Capt. Richard Martinez, he was only 3 X’s away from second place.

Sundays 3 X 600 Midrange match also had some close scores with first and second places being determined by X count. The Winner was sling shooter Randy Teissedre with 589-32X.  F Class shooter Steve Blair took second with 589-21X. Gary Atkinson, also shooting F class, grabbed third place with 585-22x.

This was my first time running the match by myself so I wanted to thank those who helped me out; John Hermsen for calling the line and all the other things he does, Dave Ellis for helping with range set up, Mark Bower for helping me get folks signed in Saturday morning, Van for covering the medic spot, and Gregg Materna for bringing me extra waiver forms and for his RSO duties.

I did want to remind everyone that we are guests of the Marine Corps and one thing we need to be mindful of is the condition we leave the range.  What I mean is we need to make sure we pick all of our trash and all of our brass.  Even if you don’t intend on reloading your brass must be picked up from the range.

The full results from both matches are posted on the match results page
