Ram Bash Wrap-Up

The first Ram Bash of the year was held on Saturday, January 27. The weather was great for January. The temperature started out about 40 degrees and was about 60 by the end of the match. It was a little windy but sunny. Twenty seven shooters showed up for this beautiful day. The brownies survived until about half way through the match.

Brady Sabelli had an excellent day and took first place with a score of 35. David Vance won the second place shoot-off and Bob Bloyer took third place. David and Bob both had scores of 34. I won the shoot-off for 10th place. Ed Cunningham won the shoot-off for fifteenth place.

The next Ram Bash is Saturday, February 24, 2017. I will miss the next couple of Bashes since I will have heart surgery on February 16. John Marhefka will probably be match director for both of those matches. He should be contacted for any information after Feb. 15.

P.S., someone left a box of brass at the match. Let me know who left it. Also Ed left his towel.

Dwight Hlustick.
