Palma Alliance™ Postal League Update:

The league is moving right along.  We have 40 shooters signed up, and so far 22 of those are actively participating.  Hopefully the rest of you will start sending scores in soon. 5,160 shots have been fired so far in the aggs, so the data is beginning to shape up.  A few shooters are already getting close to required minimums to qualify for the aggs, and we still have 5 months to go.

I didn’t receive many scores this week.  I know a lot of you were down at the Sinclair matches, and are just getting back home.  PLEASE SEND ME YOUR SCORES FROM SINCLAIR ASAP!!!  That match is a little more complicated for me than most, as there are so many different yard lines and days.  You can save me a lot of work by including in your email your scores broken out by the 3 pertinent aggs.  I believe there were 3 600-yard stages, 4 1000-yard stages, and 2 Palma aggs, so the ideal email would look something like this:

John Q Palma, 2018 Sinclair Fullbore scores:

600: 100-10x,  98-6x, 90-9x (oops)

1000: 143-3x, 148-6x, 150-15x

Palma: 437-16x, 444-21x, 450-53x (new national record!)


Thanks for playing!

Mpls. Rifle Club Smallbore Match Cancellation:

As of Sunday evening, April 2, 2018  there was still 8 inches of snow between the MRC shoot-house and the 50 yard line.  The snow will probably be melted but the range will still be a wet mess and not ready for a match.  As such, MRC is canceling the April 28, 2018 USA Shooting 3-P and Prone Smallbore & April 29, 2018 Prone Conventional Smallbore matches.  These matches will be rescheduled later in the season.
