January 2016 – Raid Report

Raid Report 1-24-16

I mentioned this in the shooter’s meeting: “We must remember a COOL day on the Gainesville range.”  And we had one.  There was frost on the tables!  But, the sun was out, the wind was light, and it warmed up into a wonderful day.  
 
29 shooters shot the match. We had High Springer who shot his first match ever.  We had Keller Hollow Kid all the way from Pennsylvania.  We had Shamrock Sadie and Knot Hardly Dunn from South Carolina.  High Springs Drifter and Miss Patty back from up north.  And Dead Lakes Walker shot for the first time in a good while.  
 
A tip of the hat to Deadeye Duvall who showed marked improvement in his shooting.  Keep it up!
 
Congratulations to Santa Fe River Stan and Shamrock Sadie for Top Gun and Top Lady respectively.
 
I think the “uncommon sweeps” were pretty popular and definitely something fresh.  My nostalgic favorite was the Cowford Sweep which took me back to my early days of cowboy shooting.  My current favorite was naturally the Raider Sweep, 22 knockdowns including the moving Polish Plate Rack!
 
Many thanks to all who helped set up and tear down.  Special thanks to Lefty Lucy for her help in lunch setup with Gin and Sage Siren.
 
Next up will be The Reckoning, Orlando’s annual match on February 6th.  Hope to see many of you there.
 
See you on the trail,
 
Delta Glen
