79 shooters braved the wind and the rain, but fortunately the weather improved as the day went on. There were some great scores considering the inclement and tricky shooting conditions. Each shooter was presented with a total of 150 targets, including 50 handicap targets just to make things even more difficult.

The overall high team was Twylight Pressure Controls with an aggregate score of 600 followed by Rapid Wireline with a total of 585 targets broken. The high overall shooter was Tyler Mikkelson breaking 137 targets with Dave Wallace in second place with a score of 132. Mike Nielsen was the high senior breaking 131 targets — it’s good to see Mike back out on the firing line again this year.
