We had our first FT shoot of they year at Elmira, and it was a great success. I want to thank Powderkeg and Parker101 ( I hope I got the handles correct) for attending. They both did exceedingly well for their first tryout with Parker 101 beating powderkeg in the hunter class by a slim margin. They both seemed to have a lot of fun and both intend to become regulars. Well done!

The promised rain was a tempest in a teacup, a couple of 5 minute sprinkles, although it looked pretty ominous a couple of times. It was good to see all the regulars out after a winter off.

I personally cant wait for the next one in Port Colborne.

I would also like to congratulate them as the first participants in the Hunter Division of CAFTA. Their participation shows that the system of scoring works well, and that Hunter does not have to be a separate match or a separate organization. This is a sport that takes some time to get accustomed to, and by the end of the season, we expect to find feedback pertaining to Hunter from shooters like Powderkeg and Parker101. Take care, and welcome.

Hey, I see that the rain showers didn't remove the focus wheel covering tape, lol. Congrats to both of you. Next time, I will make the tape, Bright Safety Yellow, lol. Talk to you later.

Congrats to the first two Hunter Division shooters, and especially to Parker 101 for "gettin' it done" :supz:

Despite windbag having to console me a few times as I watched my FWB300S become rain drenched :shock: , it was a great time :lol: . The varying weather and winds pointed out to some of us (well, to me anyway) where our skills had become a bit lax over the long, cold winter. In my case, my mediocre at best wind doping skills were put to the test on one lane - and I failed miserably :oops: . I guess I need a bit more practice :wink: .

To those that have been thinking about it, c'mon on out and join us - you'll enjoy it immensely !!!!
