I plan to wear a rain jacket. Currently we're looking at a 60% chance of showers and 1mm of accumulation.

Well, we didn't get rained on! Of course we did get a lot of drizzle. I imagine the guys will be busy drying and oiling guns tonight.

There was a sea of freshly painted FT targets - 36 in total. We had so many that we put six targets in two of the lanes to be shot just once each.

Here are the scores (out of 60):

PCP
Dave 51
Frank 44
Brian 42
John 41
Michel 34

Springer
Sylvain 37
Andrew 33
Todd 32
Duncan 25
James 22
Stacey 19

Our next shoot will be Sunday, October 13 and after the match we'll hit a sports bar in Embrun for what may be an end of season lunch and drink. :drinkers:

Thanks to all the guys, I had a blast.

A special thanks to Dave for lending me his spare gun.

Missed another one... :( Not my fault this time though...

Got all loaded up (the car, not me!), left about 7:30 am, and didn't even make it to the end of the driveway when this happened:

GREAT way to start the day! :roll:

I'm just glad it happened in the driveway, not heading down the highway @ 60 mph... :shock: Could have been nasty!
