2016 Ohio Valley Regional
2016 Kentucky Spring Challenge Results
The weekend forecast was pretty dismal and probably kept a lot of our normal shooters away. However, God smiled on us and instead of lots of heavy rain and thunderstorms, we had good shooting weather. On Saturday we started out overcast with threatening rain then the sun came out. We delayed lunch and finished the match by 1:00pm. We had great shooting weather for the match. About an hour after the match, it began to rain a little and rained most of the night.
Sunday was forecast to be the worst day for storms. However, despite rain the night before, the weather diminished just before the match started. We had to contend with a little rain for about 45 minutes, then it quit. It remained overcast for another hour and then the sun came out. We finished up the match, put away targets and gave out awards, finishing the day by about 1:30pm with a sunny 80 degrees.
We had target setters who did a great job and kept the match moving. The target setters, coupled with a somewhat low turnout contributed to the early finish times. We had 12 shooters on Saturday and 9 for Sunday. Three shooters returned home Saturday night for Sunday church services and home duties. We had one new shooter with lots of range time experience in other shooting activities. He made Master Class for his very first shoot. Congratulations to Neil Eddington! It seems that Phil Morgan is still with us. Neil used Phil’s old gun and Phil’s old ammo to accomplish this feat. Although the shoot was small in size, it was big on quality. Many of the shooters, especially the ones who had traveled a long ways to get there were very complementary of the event.

March 26, 2016
We had 11 shooters from 3 states attend the first match of the year (March 26, 2016). There were 4 shooters from Ohio, 4 from West Virginia and 3 from Kentucky. Stan Reed was the outstanding shooter for the day with a High Overall Score of 25. He was shooting Phil Morgan’s old C. Sharps rifle. I’m sure Phil was watching him from above and maybe assisting Stan a little, at least we would like to think so. It was good to see a former departed shooter’s rifle put back in service by a close friend.
A shout out should also go to Ian Egbert, he was the day’s High-Chicken Shooter with 6 Chickens in all!
The scores for today are as follows:
Iron Sight Class
M Jim Radcliffe 1-8-4-7 for a 20 and 3rd place Iron class
AAA Tim Gifford 2-8-4-5 for a 19
Tom Barr 6-6-5-5 for a 19
