We enjoyed a very good turnout for this special match.

It was nice to see some new shooters, and I`m pretty sure they enjoyed themselves. The winds were pesky, but thankfully the humidity was down from what we have had to deal with lately.

Here are today`s results!

1. Andy M. 197-20V ($250)

Re: Danny "DarkEagle" Memorial Match results

Thanks to everyone for coming today. It was a GREAT shoot.

There were at least 5 guys right down to the wire.

The second set of targets and the 4 wheeler to swap them was greatly appreciated and made the shoot go very smoothly.

Danny would be proud - I am sure he was watching today - maybe he had a little something to do with the wind

I am thinking we should make this an annual event if there is interest to continue.

Thanks again for all those who helped and for those that participated!

It was a great day for sure. Watching Andy hammer those shots out like it is easy is very enjoyable. We all know it isn't easy, he just makes it look that way.

Thanks again to everyone involved in putting this match on.

Great shooting everyone! Sorry I missed the match! I had a screwed up weekend schedule wise. See you at the next one.

Re: Danny "DarkEagle" Memorial Match results

I remember a time when two fathers and two sons would attend rifle matches with the fathers proud to see their sons do well.

I was very proud to watch my boy win yesterday.

I only wish it was still the four of us.

Re: Danny "DarkEagle" Memorial Match results

Much thanks to Dan to Nancy Shumway, Scotty Woodward, and John Anderson. We were treated to an extremely well organized and run event; a truly fitting tribute to Danny and the huge potential our sport has lost in his passing. Knowing Danny, I am pretty sure he's smiling.

I would really love to do this again.

The awards went to precisely the right people, and I am pleased to see that Danny's Teammate has carried on in both of their fine traditions. Scotty conceded nothing, and his achivement is indicative of his usual tenacious approach to puttin' 'em in there. John's work shows a culmination of experience, fine craftsmanship, and marksmanship excellence of a degree that I could only covet.

Everybody brought their best game. Despite a bunch of (perhaps too many) wind flags, the wind separated the winners from the rest. Volatile, deceptive, and unforgiving; it was exactly the kind of conditions where Danny would have conquered, and Andy did.

For the rest of us, it was a dose of reality. In the real world, true 1MOA guns and shooters make their appearances only fleetingly. That's what this target was designed to prove, and its simplicity is deceptive; just as it should be. The truth can always be found on the target, as Danny once told me.

For myself, I left everything on the target, and by the time things wound down, I had very little left. I, too, felt the absence of many good colleagues. As usual, I also learned something as part of the exercise. I would have broken out of jail to be there. Hell yeah, I'll do it again.

Re: Danny "DarkEagle" Memorial Match results

For 18 shooters, I would have expected a few more comments, if only to say thanks to the organizers. They ran us quite a show.

Count me in.

I usually shoot when I'm not busy but would make sure my schedule is clear if this becomes an annual event.

As we talked about at the shoot in remembrance of Danny - I'd drink a giant shake to that!

Sure miss those days.

He is gone but not forgotten, we break ground tomorrow for the shop.
