BR Silhouette Match Report
February 21th, 2015
The Benchrest Silhouette match on Feb. 21, 2015 had a good turnout of 14 shooters. The Field Target match that started in the morning ended with plenty of time for several shooters to participate. The match started about 1:00 pm and ended about 3:30 pm. A great day with light variable winds. Temp was in the seventy's. Overall a great day for the match. I want to thank Andy Picard for acting RO and assisting with running the match. Also, thanks to Ray Perron fo acting score master, and thanks to all that participated and helped set-up and cleanup.
Because of the great weather we had a number of high scores. Also there were a number of ties. The tie breaker method is based on the first missed. For the sake of time and fairness each animal is reviewed for first miss starting with with chickens. This would be like comparing apples with apples rather then apples and oranges. Such as comparing 1st missed pigs to 1st missed turkeys. It would be fair to say pigs at 44 meters are less challenging than turkeys at 60 meters, thus apples to oranges. This way it does not matter what animal the tie started on.
OK, on with the scores. First place standard class went to John Lenio with 36 knockdowns out of 40. Great shooting. Second, third and fourth places were all tied with 34 knockdowns. So based on the first missed second place went to Allen Surratt, third place went to Dave Litt and fourth place went to Peykan Beyrami. There was also a tie for fifth, sixth and seventh place with 29 knockdowns. Again based on the first missed fifth place went to Ray Perron, sixth place went to Tony Taraszka and seventh place went to Larry Cofield. In the Springer class Warren Bissonnette had scope issues and was not able to finish. In the Junior class first place ent to Justin Taraszka with 22 knockdowns. In the Extreme class first went to Mark Bouchard with 29 knockdowns. Second place went to Mark Buchanan with 26 knockdowns. Great shooting and congratulations to all the shooters.
