My Groundhog match experience

First off..Let me thank Chris Matthews for building me a great gun!!

Now then

Many thanks to everyone who helped me out on my treck to Pa. for the groundhog shoot. Mark and Lynn. I cant even begin to thank you enough for the great hospitality you shown me and my Sons. You folks are the greatest. To say you went above and beyond would be an understatement. I look forward to future visits.

Jason, Had a riot! Hope the finger is feeling better. It was a pleasure to meet you. Great sense of humor my friend. I liked that. You are not the uptight type!! My boys enjoyed your humor and willing to help. I also cant thank you enough. Finding a spotter for the oldest was great. Thanks a million.

Frank, hmmm...now where do I go with this one. Talk about a great person! A big giant bear with a wonderful personality. It was a pleasure to meet you and get to shoot with you. I felt like I've known you for years. Thanks for all the help.

Boyd, I was great to meet you and your little girl. Yup...She can shoot. Hope we get to do this again sometime.

Derek...Man, I wish you had got there earlier...It would of been fun to see the 2 LSR Sisters going neck to neck. My kids were cracking up the whole way back to camp because they said you, Mark and Me are like little kids at the range. Had a riot and hope to do it again sometime.

Abe...President of the club. More than helpful with everything and a great guy. Made me feel right at home and welcomed my Non-resident membership. It was great. I plan on visiting again soon. Thanks for everything.

I'm sure I forgot several people...If so, it was great to meet you. Everyone was so helpful and the gods honest most wonderful folks I ever met in my whole life. What a great group. We had a riot and am anxious for our next trip.

Oh...How did I do?? I think I did well. I'll let the others judge. I ended up with a 138 total score out of 150. The LSR did great I think for a first time LR shooter I felt very confident. With the help from the above all went well. Wind was a #$%# at 500...man, that was violent. The 500 is where I dropped most of the score.

Anyway...I'll have some pics in a day or so.

I cant say enough how much we enjoyed ourselves and welcomed the great hospitality of everyone.

Thanks

Joe

Re: My Groundhog match experience

Joe....I truely hope that you and your sons had a great experience while in PA...It was a pleasure to meet you and both of your sons. All of you handled yourselves with lots of class while on the shooting line, which is not easy when everyone is looking right at you trying to help..instead of first timers you guys looked like you attended every match held over the last two years..I hope it was all worth your time, I'd like to "thank you" again for making the trip..you guys sure looked like you had a great time in the hills and hollows of central PA..I'd also like to "thank" all the guys from the match who did a fantastic job making everything go as smooth as possible for you and yours..it truely is a small world..you looked and acted just like the entire crew..all of them are gentlemen and ladies..the conditions were very tuff at 500 yards, sorry about that, but it was no PPC day this week, I had only one little 67 grain bullet hit the target and those $1500.00 spotting scopes couldn't see a hole during my relay..oh well.. Remember..you and yours as well as everyone else are always welcome at the Mifflin Co. Groundhog Matches..they are truley awesome !! It was a pleasure to meet you !!!
