    Will be there and am shooting doubles for the first time. Having a good time with the club. This will be my first full season since I started just a few months ago. Hoping to get my act together and one day earn a buckle!

    Glad to hear you are going to try doubles, they are a lot of fun.

    What the club does is anytime doubles. So, if you shoot singles early then shoot doubles after you finish singles. If you are shooting singles later then shoot doubles before singles.

    Around 9 am there will be a sign up sheet on the table in front of field 3.

    There are two ways to win a buckle. The first is the 12-point buckle. A member wins a point for winninng, tying or having a score equal to or above the average winning score for that event. The second is a class win based on the average of your best 9 scores throught the shoot year. You compete in the class or yardage group that you start the shoot year with even tho you may advance during the year.

    Good Luck!!

    Out of curiousity, what usually happens when it rains? Do you guys reschedule the event, cancel it completely, or just shoot thru the rain if its not raining too hard?

    Also, how do you notify members ahead of time if its been cancelled or rescheduled, email?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Hi Bonzai272:

    If the weather is bad etc we take a vote among those that showed up. In the past I remember two times where we shot in light rain. My scores actually went up!

    Here is what our rules say:

    "A consensus among the participating shoothers will determine the modification, postponement, or cancellation of an event due to inclement weather, darkness of other causes"

    Just got back/finished cleaning the guns - what a fun day, irregardless of the rain! Have a nice dollar coin sized bruise on my left cheek (layering up changed my mounting methinks - never had a bruise from the BT until today). Doubles was awesome. Overall, I didn't shoot as well as I wanted to, but nonetheless, good times!

    Thanks all,
    Ray

    Imagine having fun in the cold and wet!

    Did OK in singles but it was very wet during doubles. Put a tissue in my pocket to wipe the rain off my glasses but my ammo belt prevented access.

    A padded shirt, heavy sweater and a slipery jacket made mounting difficult so it became a learning experience.

    I'm glad it went.

    Great wet day at Redlands. Terrific club regardless of the weather.

    Shot my best singles 97 in C class, and was first loser to 98's. About 7 others had 97's as well.

    Hope it rains at my next shoot :)

    Looking forward to the next shoot.

    We had a blast out there shooting doubles in pouring rain!

    A question came up...say you are an A-class singles shooter but a B-class doubles shooter. Which HOA class do you fall under when it comes to earning a buckle point?

    Singles Class determines your HOA.

    Your HOA class is the same as your singles class. "A" class for HOA would need a score of 185 or greater to earn an over average point, sometimes referred to as OA point. Obviously you might win with a lower score and also score a point (win point). They both count equally for annual buckle purposes.

    This was the first time in over three full target years that it rained during one of our shoot days. I hope it's another three years.

    Have fun,
    John
