I just got these from the match director yesterday. Hope to have an equipment list for the top 4 in a few days. As you can see, Jerry Tierney pretty well cleaned up, but at least he left some crumbs behind for the rest of us

A big thank you to due Ed Eckhoff and the entire SVSC crew for putting on such a smoothly run and enjoyable match. Daily results were posted within 30 minutes of the last shot every single day, and Saturday's barbecue was an epicurean delight!

Conditions were incredibly fickle. The mornings looked gentle enough, but even the apparent calm was switchy enough to throw the unwary off by 1/2 MOA. By the 3rd relays on day 1 & 2, it was blowing enough to need 3 - 5 MOA. Even this wouldn't have been too bad, except it's just stop cold for minutes at a time and then reverse for a few more. More than a few shooters had a hard time keeping them all on paper after about 11 AM. The we had watch I call the "miracle day". On the last day of the match, we had near perfect conditions, light but consistent winds with just enough mirage to make let offs and switches easy to read. The miraculous part is that these condition persisted throughout all 3 relays!! In the 5 years or so that I've been shooting this range, I don't think I've ever seen that before.

So, without further adieu....

You sure that's not a picture of Mickey Rooney on the Blog??

I dunno about that. Mickey Rooney was photogenic at one point.

Think I overheard Jerry badmouthing your work. Please cancel all future orders from him, and insert work for me in their place.

Just kidding, Jerry. Great shooting!

PS - And just so you know, that big rifle shown in the Moderators post was on the bench next to me and kept blowing my rifle off the rest. That's the only reason I didn't win. That's my story and I'm sticking with it!

Well, Ray, I saw your request for a wind and mirage free bench, and near as I can tell, the powers that be did the best they could. 'Course you know, if'n you ask for a muzzle-blast free bench next time, all bets will be off in the wind and mirage departments.

Seriously though, it was good to see you and to shoot with you again as well.
