    Winds:

    South at 28 mph

    Gusts to 42 mph.

    .

    Broke 23 out of 25.

    The wind did not blow the shot pattern onto the clay target for the other two.

    That's a great score for wind like that.

    Where were you shooting??

    Hammer, you should have missed those two targets on the other side. Then you would have had a 25!!! Oh, Well next time. Breake-m all. Jeff

    I shot a 94 in singles one day in wind like that.....oh wait. It was sustained at 40 and gusts to 59. The handicap was fun too.

    I recall one day when I was younger the wind stopped blowing in Oklahoma....half the population fell down 'cause they were so used to leaning into it.

    It's really fun when the north wind is blowing hard enough that you need to shoot the targets out of self defense. If you miss one you better duck because its coming right back at you!
