MORE IMPORTANT !!, we had 11 firsttime (to this match) shooters***. (Check out Chris Sebal's second string score, he tied for second place in this string of fire! This was his first match)

This is "Chip" Sherry with a borrowed .223.
This match required three "relays", that is three shooters were assigned to each target. One was shooting, one was scoring and one was "inthepits", working the targets. This is the first relay shooting, Chris Sebal is nearest, shooting. Next is Doug Fye, shooting and Allen Wagner (seated, in the yellow shirt) scoring for Doug. Beyond Doug is Tom Schall, shooting with Bud Vermier scoring for him. After shooting, the shooters will go to the pits, the scorers will become shooters, and the guys/gals in the pits will turn into scorers.
This is relay two. Allen has moved into the shooting spot, while Tom Schall has gone to the pits and Marty M^{c}Donnell, who was in the pits, has come to the line to score. Bud Vermire discovered he had no ammo, so his spot is empty, soon to be filled by me. I had not intended to shoot, but why pass up the empty spot?
And now we've come near full circle, with Marty M^{c}Donnel shooting, Doug Fye scoring, and Allen in the pits.
This is Bill Hallam, a displaced Australian, shooting a custom Stolle actioned rifle in 6.5mm x 284.
