    We had a perfect weekend for our match. The weather was picture perfect. Thanks to all who showed up, we have not had this many competitor's in quite a few years. Thanks to all that helped out with working on tergets and running the shooting line. Welcome to new comers to this match Todd Campbell, Dale Engstrom, Jim Kluskens, Judd Spayde, and Art Stone. Congratulations to Jodi Decker, she has done the "Hat Trick" and is our 3 time (in a row) Mid-Range State Champion in Scope Class! Now for the impossible. We have a new Mid-Range State Champion in Iron Sight Class, Bob Elka. Bob Rifled his own barrel, he also designed and made his own bullet mold. During the match at 600 yards, Bob shot his own bullet design through his own rifled barrel and hit his spotter (which was dead center in the "X" ring) and drove the plastic spindle in the middle of the spotter right through the back of the target without hurting the spotting disk!!! Bob shot (2) of the highest  matches (3&5) he also shot the highest aggregate  and only dropped a total of 24 points for the entire match, again with his own barrel and bullet!!!!  Jim Kluskens came the farthest to shoot with us and we are very greatful. Jim is one of our many Match Sponsors this year and last. He owns Distant Thunder Shooting Products. Jim shoots a Hepburn that he completely built himself (From a block of steel) and he also makes his own front sights and even more impressive, his own rear soule sight!! With his own rifle and sights Jim shot both a 100-7X and a 100-6X at 200 yards!!!  Not to be completely out done,  I built an elevetion knob graduated in 1/4 MOA for newcomer Art Stone for his Pedersoli rear sight. It was by far a simple project compared to the other fellas, I just don't have talent enough to keep up with the other guys. All of us custom build lots of stuff for our competition rifles, which makes this quite a great group of people to have the privelage to hang out and have fun with. Saturday night we had a drawing for "Door Prizes" from our Match Sponsors for this event;                                                                                       Buffalo Arms                                                                                                             Dixie Gun Works                                                                                                       Graf & Sons                                                                                                               Montana Vintage Arms                                                                                              Pacific Tool & Gauge                                                                                                 Redding Reloading                                                                                                              Starline Brass                                                                                     Treebone Carving                                                                                                      Walters Wads                                                                                                             Again when purchasing shooting supplies if possible please consider our Sponsors first. Sunday we gave out a new type of awards, trophies and medals. Hopefully everyone liked them as they save a lot of time. One major glitch Sunday, some idiot, (okay it was me) couldn't seem to manage to add up the scores and forgot all about match 4 in the first attempt to come up with a results sheet. Luckily Greg Vest noticed it and we managed to correct the totals before the end of the match. Bob Elka and Jodi Decker both set new State Records during this match. Bob Elka set a record in the "OPEN CLASS" 200-300-600-600-300-200 yds. he inched out Paul Behe who had 573-27X in May 2013, Bob shot 576-16X May 2015. Jodi inched out herself in "WOMENS" 10 shot at 300 yds. She had 96-4X in May 2014 and this year shot 97-1X May 2015. Congrtaulations to them both.                                                  BOB ELKA 600 YD. SPINDLE SHOT. THE MAN, THE MYTH, THE LEGEND.
