We wrapped up the 2014 East Texas Championship yesterday with 69 shooters in attendance out of the 81 that paid up.
We shoot three different size clay pigeons at 400 yds. The conditions were the worst of any match we have held at Pine Valley. Overall the scores were down compared to past matches. However, there were those who knew where to hold the crosshairs in the ever changing wind and they came out on top. We enjoyed a ribeye steak lunch and had a drawing for 40+ prizes donated by many vendors.
Friday was practice day and we served gumbo for dinner afterwards.
First place received a Nightforce 12x42 BR scope donated by Stick at S&S Precision and Fast Back Trucking LLC.
