Nothing brings out the recluses like a classifier match
before the big matches of summer. All the regulars and
lots of people we havent seen in awhile. Twenty
seven shooters, some bringing a second gun that rounded
out the roster to thirty one. I think thats a
Wheelburners club record. Displaying all the manners of
pigs at the trough Ron W. and Derek hogged up everything.
Overall first and second, first open, first limited and
all stage wins. So undignified was it that they both got
their snouts caught together and had to eat Far and Near
at the same time. Whats that you say?
the sour grapes were tasty thank you. Art who should have
been rusty having not been out in awhile, wasnt and
took third overall. Welcome to first time attendee Bill
Price who after picking up a flyer for the SWRRC at the
Sharpshooters range, located us on the internet. Special
thanks to Ron W. for getting the scores out so quickly.
He was somehow convinced to do them under the ridiculous
pretext that since the classifier sheets would have to go
to him eventually he might as well take them now. He must
have been delirious from his recent engorgement. The
stages: Accuracy Is Everything (CS-008) Two boxes
on the 180, five papers set up in an inverted W. Start in
