Anyone else going to the shoot this weekend?

I went and practiced a bit this afternoon. Saw a turkey run across the road as I was driving in. I had fired a few shots and while I was posting a target, a doe walked out of the woods about 30 yards from me. I was firing my next to last shot and another turkey flew over just gobbling away.

For the 4th time Paul "Spidermatic" Griffith won the York Shoot. Same as last year, he gave what would have been one of his prizes, an Ed Rayl barrel to the shooter who finished 150th. What a great shot and great guy Paul Griffith is.

I fired 5 practice shots and had the dreaded two groups. One group of three shots and one group of two, bad thing was they were located 3 inches apart. I put my target in the location of the 3 shot group and my first shot hit an inch off of X-center and thought yeah. Unfortunately my next shot went into the two shot group below for a score of 3. After that the next couple of shots alternated between the top and bottom groups. I had 5 shots go for a score of under 6 inches and the other 5 over 14

In spite of my poor display of shooting I had a fantastic time. I got to spend all day with a great bunch of people and renew friendships made the past two years. Many thanks to Ron Borron, Mel Hankla, Jim Franks, Allen Coon and all the folks who are responsible for putting on what to me is my favourite day of the year...yep even better than Christmas.
