August 2014 – Raid Report

Raid Report 8-24-14

This may be redundant, but it was HOT again. 33 shooters ripped through 6 stages designed to be really fast. Close targets, short movement, and sequences that tempted us to put the pedal to the metal were the order of the day. Congratulations to Top Gun Santa Fe River Stan who, in his words, got the Raiders monkey off his back. He did so with a couple of 13 second stages and a couple of 14 second stages (one had 6 shotgun) for a net time of 96 seconds. Really? Hawkeye Gin was Top Lady again, but this time she was 4th overall and was only 1 second away from 3rd. Great shooting!

We had 3 clean shooters, Gin, Little Dead Drewster, and Lake City Kid.

Many thanks to the following folks who contributed to this month’s match:
The setup crew: Major Mishap, Zack McGee, and Tin Star John who helped Rod, Gin, and me on Saturday.
Tornado Timmy built us 2 more folding lunch tables.
Wabash Valley Slim for weed-eating around the stages to make brass recovery much easier.
Laura (LAC) for scoring, photos and just being herself.
Delta Red for delivering lunch.
And a big Thanks to the Gainesville Target Range for the Connex storage container provided to the Raiders for storage of all our stuff!! We are fortunate to have GTR for our home.

We also had a bunch of Raiders take the ALS ice bucket challenge. Check out Facebook to see the video footage of some pretty impressive gasps as the icy water splashed. Go to alsa.org to donate.

See you September 28th…it’s bound to be a little cooler.
