HOT! A 3 shirt day for sure. Don't know what the heat index was, but, the thermometer in the truck settled on 95* when we were done at 4:00. There was a breeze that bounced the targets around but did little to cool off the shooters. Water was at a premium and I would guess that those of us there drank a large pond full of it........ The sun was in and out, making for a few now you see it now you don't ventures. With all that there were good scores shot in all events with no mercy to be found for anyone. Good turnout as we had 27 shoot singles, 20 for caps and 16 toed the line for doubles.

We had a strong showing of shooters from DCWC and Jeff Galloway represented Rockingham. The young 'uns were out in force and shot very well with the continued support of very involved parents. It is soooo good to see this as they are the future of our sport.

Marty left his kitty kat at home but he did show us the wounds on his arms were Sam was evidently sharpening his claws. He mentioned something about getting 'ol Sam "fixed", turned down offers of having us do a "homemade" version for him......wonder why???

Lunch was great as usual with cold cut sammiches, beans, cookies, watermelon, cantelope and of course Karole's deeelicious cupcakes. The Faithful did their thing as usual and everything ran like clockwork.

I know it's coming so I'll put the truth to the tale before "others" put their spin on it. I was 49 straight in the mid 50 and dropped the last target out. What happened is the world went completely dark and tilted on it's axis at the VERY moment I called for that target leaving virtually no chance to break it. My story and I'm sticking to it! Lesson learned, break the damn thing BEFORE you count it.......
