Waterloo Field Target Club Results for April 26, 2008

Our first match of the 2008 season here in Canada at first looked like it was going to be a very wet one. The skies darkened and the wind picked up right near the 11:00 AM start time, but aside from a few showers, it was a pleasant day to shoot field target in the woods.
The course was set up by nine individuals, with no one having to set up more than five targets. That sure made things easy for pre-match set-up and target pick-up after the match. Many thanks to all that helped. Target difficulties ranged from 11T up to 50+T, yielding a real variety from lane to lane. There sure were a few hot spots that certainly accounted for a great number of missed shots.
It was the first match held under the new rules developed by the CAFTA Board of Governors over the winter months. Things went extremely smooth and many thanks to the match director, George, and all from Waterloo who served as Marshalls on the course. If this match is any indication, it is going to be a great season.
Fifteen competitors made it out to the match and all three major Divisions of PCP, Piston and Hunter had shooters as well as both Limited Subclasses of PCP and Piston. The Hunter Division was just created and the two shooters, Dennis and Rob, were first time competitors in FT and the first to compete in this Division in Canada. Congratulations to both of them for being the first and doing so well. The Limited Subclasses of Piston and PCP also made a debut in Canada, with three competitors in Limited Piston and two in the Limited PCP.
The scoring in the Hunter division is unique to that Division. If a target is knocked down, the competitor scores two points, but they are also able to score a single point if the target is hit, but does not fall. A perfect score in this Division for a 60 shot match would be 120. In his first ever match, Dennis L., was able to post an excellent score of 77/120, followed closely by Rob with 65/120. I think they both enjoyed themselves and we were glad to have them there.
As can be seen from the scores, there was great competition in the Piston Division. In the open part of this Division, Len had the top score followed closely by Tom and Bill. Over in the Limited subclass of Piston, James had a very impressive day, not only taking high score in his Subclass, but also posting the High score, 50/60, for the whole Piston Division. James was awarded first in the Subclass and the Division. George and Ted respectively rounded out the scoring in the Piston Limited Subclass.
Over in the PCP Division the story was very similar. Chris, shooting in the Limited PCP Subclass, posted the highest score in the division, 59/60, and was rewarded with two awards, one for top in Limited and one for high score in the Division. In the Open PCP, Dennis had the highest score followed by Don and Bert.
So the first match of the 2008 season is in the books as a great success. The Waterloo FT Club hosted a great match and set the standard high for the matches to come. Many thanks to all who attended the match and to the Waterloo crew for pulling it off. We look forward to seeing everyone in Port Colborne on May 10th for the second match of the season and the first at the Port venue for this year.
