Detailed results linked here: #1 Match Results Feb. 2nd 2019
36 shooters showed (12 brand new to LRC) for our first FPR match of the year and lucked out with exceptionally good weather. The day started out overcast, about a 15mph wind and 37' F, by noon temps had risen to around 44' with sun peeking out occasionally and wind dropped to a switchy 3-8 variable.
First place was supper tight and was actually a tie between our very consistent top dog Carl Ross and our 2018 Rookie of the year Jared Miller at 77 points (87 was perfect). Ultimately we had to go to the tie breaker stage where Jared barely edged out Carl by one impact to claim the top spot! Congrats to both these guys for shooting their butts off! Third went to another consistent top performer Owen Koeppen with a 75. Well done Owen!
Top Hunter for this match with a score of 36 went to one of the dozen new faces that joined us. Congratulations Micheal Lingo!
I want say how grateful I am to Mark Griffis. Mark stepped up big time this year and has offered to Match Direct the 2019 LRC Club Series Events!! That's huge for LRC and I ask that everyone graciously thank Mark for his efforts. This will take a large portion of the time burden off myself so I can put more time and focus on improving what LRC has to offer. Our membership is continuing to grow and our reputation as a premier Practical Long Range Steel Facility is now solidly established in the region thanks to Members like Mark!
Ryan Berger volunteered his time and took a host of quality photos and we'll be working on a album for this years series. Thank you Ryan!
Next match is coming up on the 2nd of March and registration is now open.
