It’s sad that the matches aren’t as well attended as they used to be. I’m surprised really. The venue and its organisation was superb.John0313 wrote: ↑Sat Dec 31, 2022 7:13 amAhh, the good old days! Those shooting service rifle (or “Highpower” as we called it back then) now can’t believe that the matches at Quantico were so well attended that we would fill up range 4, and the overflow went to Range 3 - all 4 relays! I think we had more shooting at the Mid-Atlantic Match back then than now shoot the Nationals. Very sad.
The social life was pretty good too. One of the parties that we attended after the competition was finished.
The huts that we stayed in. Definitely not the Hilton but the price was right. $5 or so bucks a night IIRC.
I was in fine form when this photo was taken. Drinking OP rum …and then one of the locals introduced me to Moon Shine
And that’s it
