Labor Day Weekend Bowling Pin Match Results

Greetings Gentle Shooters, Verizon Fios has resurrected my internet service and so now you may have your match results. Congratulations to Dale Mullin on taking his first five gun aggregate win. I’d like to point out that we actually had a tie for second place in Major this month. I don’t remember a tie ever before. We certainly didn’t know about the tie at the end of the match, so there can’t be an Olympic moment where folks joyously share the silver medal. Besides, we are Americans and there have to winners! Well it is my circus so it’s my monkey and by decree, the winner is Brian Howell. His fastest string was almost a half second faster than the loser.

July Bowling Pin Match Results

Greetings Gentle Shooters, Sometimes a pinhead, like a pin itself, is knocked down but not completely out. In this case, they are still able to deliver results. Art would be crestfallen if I didn’t mention he set another record with his carbine. You know this isn’t going to happen every single month, right? For the rest of us, there is always August.

May Day Bowling Pin Match Results

It was truly a beautiful day at the range. I am not certain why we are not drawing more shooters. Perhaps it is the availability of ammunition.

April Bowling Pin Match Results

It turned out to be crisp but lovely day for a match at the range. I guess a few of you are still practicing or scrounging up ammunition. For the nine of us who did attend, we go to see a little of everything including some spectacular early season failures. In addition, today’s contestants witnessed a new club record for clearing five pins from a table. Art Schoner now holds the club record for a 2.38 second relay. Congratulations. For the rest of us, the good, the bad and the just plain embarrassing results are listed below. See you next month at the range.
