Looking forward to another weekend at the Central Whidbey Sportsmen's Association this weekend. http://www.cwsaonline.org/ Weather is looking a little damp but we will persevere. See you on the line.

How was the weather better than expected and worse at the same time? Less rain - more wind. 11 patriots braved the cold to come out and learn about marksmanship and their heritage as riflemen.

Despite some equipment issues Travis pulled out our high score of 224 (226 w/.30 cal). Even though the forge only turned out 1 Rifleman (nice job Travis) we also got a new Red Hat and Orange Hat. Congratulations Will for all of the hard work. Thank you Frankie for stepping up.

There was marked improvement by our youth shooters. When they really buckled down and focused on the 6 steps they shot well. When they rushed through the AQT - well, marksmanship suffered.

Port Townsend is just a ferry ride away if you want to try again next month. Otherwise; I trust we will see you guys in 2018.

I managed a few pictures - https://photos.app.goo.gl/sCrbUp87TNAKUTXn1 Flipper will post up the Rifleman and Instructor pictures soon.

Another great weekend at Coupeville!

Thank you to all the shooters that came out and persevered through the wind and rain. Even though Travis was the only person to leave with a new patch, I saw improvement from everyone on the line. Between now and your next event dry practice is your friend. Remember the six steps of firing a shot and work on your transitions.  I look forward to seeing all of you at future events.

Also, Matt... Blue loctite.  ;D
