AUGUST 11, 2019 - SURETTE CHALLENGE - RESULTS


This match was originally scheduled for August 10 but was held the following day due to inclement weather including thunder storms.

Thanks to Michelle for sending the results and some pics of the match.

"I'm very glad we rescheduled from Saturday to Sunday, the weather yesterday was severe and quite a bit of hail as well.  This morning was a bit chilly, but quickly warmed up.  The cloud/sun mix made for some interesting conditions.
Both Ken Kyle and Kris Feng were in attendance today, and both are leaving tomorrow for Ottawa.  We wish them luck and safe travels!"

Ron Surette, with help from Michelle, organized the match and was the match director and Chief Range Officer. The match was shot at 300, 500 and 600 meters on the ranges in St. Antoine.

All matches will be held at Batouche Range on electronic targets. Shooters are required to bring a wifi-enabled device (tablet, smartphone, laptop, etc). 

A BBQ lunch will be provided on all three days. 

These matches were originally scheduled to be in PEI, but due to unforeseen circumstances with the DND Alexandra Range availability, they have been moved to New Brunswick. If you have already registered for PEI and can still attend, you will receive a refund for the reduced match fee.

Please extend this invitation on our behalf to your team members, coaches, assistants and guests. Pre-registration is required for both matches. RSVP to myself by responding to this email. Attached is an official invitation letter for those travelling across the border. Hope to see you all in NB,

JULY 20, 2019 - THE GAUTREAU 600 - RESULTS


Thanks to JC Gautreau for sending these results and pics.
It was a hot day on Saturday in St. Gabriel for the Gautreau 600 with 14 shooters attending.
Debbie Gautreau made a wonderful Barbque and everyone had a wonderful time shooting, eating, rejuvenating friendships and making new shooting friends.
The mirage and heat were definitely difficult shooting conditions and the winds were not particularly helpful in peaking through the mirage - a few puffs here and there hardly cleared the mirage. 
Shooting took place over 600m with 3 relays of 15 (possible 225V45).

RESULTS - TR CLASS AT 600m:
Ron Surette - 220V21
Ken Geddes - 210V14

RESULTS - FTR CLASS AT 600m:
J P Canuel - 221V22
Tony Pham - 221V21
J C Gautreau - 218V13
Paul Bost - 216V19
Andrew Justason - 215V16
Nelson Lebrun - 212V19
Annie Pettersen - 212V16
Marc Langelier - 206V15
Perry Wright - 204V12
