I made the trip to NWGC Sunday morning to shoot in the EIC Leg match. I found myself questioning my sanity as the weather went from light mist to heavy rain the entire trip. Northwestern Gun Club is a beautiful facility, and I've always had an excellent time shooting there. I was pleased to find the sky, while still overcast, was the brightest it had been all morning when I arrived at the range.
When the smoke cleared, and all our soggy equipment was put away, Jeff Jezierski (Distinguished) was declared match winner with an excellent 487-13X. Randy (Ocho no Bueno) Blaha took the Silver Medal and the Bronze and only Leg with a 472-13X(?). I took my second Bronze Medal and second first leather of the season with a 470-11X.
It should be noted that Randy shot an 81-0 in standing, then finished the match firing a 198-?X at 500. Randy shot an 8 on his 17th shot, thus the new nickname. This is Randy's second EIC and his second Bronze Leg of the year.
