And no, a 1996 Winchester model 70 is NOT allowed even though it has military roots with the Mauser….Match Directors have final say, and will loan you a rifle if needed.
Sanner’s Lake Woodstock Match Report – July 2017
A hot and hazy summer afternoon
didn’t deter the diehard shooters who came out to the July Woodstock match at
Sanners Lake, with two relays once again required to accommodate all the
classic rifles. The benches were wall-to-wall
with an assortment of antique iron including an interesting Egyptian FN-49, a
trifecta of classic Lee-Enfields, a Swiss K-31, an ‘03-A3, plus a more “modern”
M1A. And, of course, the standard gaggle
of Garands. As usual the action was as
hot as the weather, with a tight race for top shot across the benches. Chris M and his ‘03A3 turned in a blazing
100-3X to take the top spot in the individual category (and also set a new
Woodstock Match SR-21 target single score record!), but that wasn’t enough to
stop Ron Fe who kept putting rounds right down the middle to take the top
prize in the combined score category with a killer 289-9X. See the detailed results in the July Match Report.
Congrats to all the shooters for bringing the heat in the heat! Next match is on 17 August, see you there...
