It turned out to be a nice day for the first NBRSA match at this range. Nine shooters came from as far away as Boise, ID. and Prineville, OR and Sacramento to compete for Hi Scores and Smallest Groups in Light Gun 17″ and under and Heavy Gun of unlimited weight. Awards in 10 categories from third place to first place were given out. The day turned out to be a favorable day for conditions as the smoke cleared the area making the targets visible at the long range. The following report is from Brad Eslinger who kept score for the match. I want to thank all of our club members and non-members who assisted me putting on this match which ran smoothly. The competitors were treated to a nice pulled pork sandwich meal served by Carrie Patterson and the Claybusters. Submitted by Richard Heinsohn Secretrary, TSA.
