Ram Bash Wrap-Up

The fifth Ram Bash of the year was held on Saturday, May 26. The temperature started out in the mid seventies and got warmer as the day went on. Some of the shooters were dragging as the day got warmer. As a result scores seemed to be a bit lower than normal. Twenty four shooters showed up for the match. The brownies survived until the third ram.

David Vance came through with a 32 to take first place. Bob Bloyer took second place with a score of 31. Jay Mason won the shoot-off to take third place with a score of 29. Steve Tavenner won the tenth place shoot-off. Doug Crowe won the shoot-off for 15th place.

The next Ram Bash is Saturday, June 23, 2018.
