March Mr. Completely e-Postal Scores


Besides being fun, and good practice, one reason we like to do the monthly e-Postal contest is because it is good therapy for Pattie.  Her stroke in 2012 gave her what the doctors call "left deficit."  She doesn't see or perceive things to her left, and fighting that is part of the rehabilitation process.  We have found that when shooting plates she does better if she goes from left to right, and the back and forth movement of this target was a challenge for her.  You can see the effect of the left deficit in the two targets above.  It is eerie the way many of the shots line up vertically between the left and center circles.  She settled down after a few warmup targets and we talked her through the one where she shot 9/10.  Pattie shot all of these off her rest that she uses for rifle shooting, and I think that is OK for someone over 90.

Billll of Billll's Idle Mind, Susan, Pattie, and Merle all entered, and we had a new participant.  Kevin showed us how to shoot a 10/22 at 25 yards.  A big Thank You to all who entered.

Good Shooting, Kevin!  That 10/22 will do well on the April target!

Glad to hear that this helps Patti! In general it's good that she is interested & trying to keep her morale up.

Good shooting Kevin, and welcome to the matches!

Thanks Merle! Bench shooting is fun, but I've got work to do to get better at off hand shooting and with a pistol!

Kevin - and shooting these matches is good practice too. I find it a lot more enjoyable with the variety of targets than just shooting bullseyes. :)
