65 degrees today with lots of sunshine, again, and a nice breeze, 10-15 mph. Shortsleeve shirt weather…..for some of us. It was a really nice day to be shooting Jackpot.
The scores were good again and 3rd squad out Dale Otis posted a 48 and that perked things up 4th squad out, the “new” fox in the hen house, Leon Houle, posted a 49 for the second week in a row. Great shooting Dale and Leon.
But, as we all know, if it isn’t a 50 straight, the door is open. And in steps Virginia Hines. Yup, Virginia went out there and made all the boys wish that they could shoot like a girl. And she made it look easy. Was in the middle of all 50 targets and hit ’em hard. Outstanding shooting Virginia.
Now, in the weeks past, when someone broke a 50 straight you saw their picture holding a bunch of Perpetual Purse cash and even more cash if we didn’t have a flat of shells to give to the 50 straight winner. Well, in the picture attached you’ll see Virginia holding just the flat of shells. You guessed it. Virginia didn’t play the $3.00 option for the Perpetual Purse. She thought about it 3/4 of the way through the handicap but that was too late. Next time.
Virginia Hines 50
Leon Houle 49

David Maples 43

Ties = Handicap from the front. Troy, I didn’t call the flip….Leo did. :>)
