The rain held off as did the wind (for the first Match of the day; Factory Class). It was only when the Unlimited Class began their competition that the wind began to howl and cause problems for some of the shooters. In general, for both Matches, the scores were once again very impressive and reflective of the caliber (no pun intended) of the shooters we have attending the ARA events. We had guest shooters from Jacksonville and Lakeland join us today. Guest shooters are always welcome and always enjoy their time with us.
Jonathan Linforth returned to our competition today after an absence brought on by a medical situation that sidelined him for several weeks. Our prayers were answered by his return and he looks great and his smile shows that he is feeling much better. I'm certain he will continue a strong recovery after enduring a very strenuous situation. Welcome back Jonathan. CONGRATULATIONS go out to John Young, scoring a very impressive 4,850 - 4X to lock in first place in the Factory Class. Right on John's heels was Ken Lloyd with a 4,700 - 3X for second place, and for third Dave McMillian scored 4,675 - 1X. Only 175 points separated first from third place. That's some stiff competition! CONGRATULATIONS to our guest from Lakeland, Lee Methvin recording an aggregate score of 4,450 - 23X to take first place honors followed by Kimberly Lytle with 4,225 -19X in second place and third place going to Tom Michenzi scoring a 3,925 7X. Excellent shooting in some very challenging conditions. Our next ARA Matches are scheduled for June 21, 2023. Make plans to attend and put some holes in paper.
Here are the scores:
