Thanks Glenn

This was our 15th Joe Hepsworth memorial match which is normally held in October but we were forced to hold it on the first weekend of November. . Shooting started on Saturday morning at 1000 yards. Winds were brisk but some good scores were posted. Justin Abrams had the high score for cartridge at 1000 with an 87-x. Ken Heisman shot a 77 with his muzzleloader. Next we moved out to 1100. Winds were really starting to pick up and were making it hard for the military to put out some range fires that had started around noon. Smoke in the air forced us to wait until the fires were put out. After a pause the first relay went without a hitch. The second relay at 1100 had to pause a few min into their relay because the targets just went visible through the smoke. After it had cleared somewhat relay 2 was able to finish. High score for cartridge at 1100 was a 74x while Ken Heisman shot a 71x with his muzzleloader. We were supposed to have a 1200 yard relay but some of the fires were starting to get out of control so the military shut us down so that they have access to the road that cuts across the range that we were using.
By Sunday morning the fires were mostly put out and we were able to resume. However there was a thick fog and we were not able to start until almost 10. Because of that we had to make Sunday a single 15 shot relay at 1200 instead of two 10 shot relays. Sandra Pool had the high score at 1200 with a 115 while Ken shot a 92 at 1200 with his muzzleloader. You can see from the score board how things shook out once the smoke cleared. I will try and upload some more pictures later this evening. Anyone living near Camp Atterbury Indiana is highly encouraged to come and join us. Not many places anywhere that we can shoot this far. It is a fun experience .

Great shooting Sandra. Justin continues to be a strong competitor and Ken Heisman is a force with the ml. Congrats to all.
