Jim Latham Memorial Score Match - Sunday, July 2, 2023
« on: June 18, 2023, 03:20:37 PM »
Mission and District Rod and Gun will host our annual Jim Latham Memorial VFS match on Sunday, July 2. 

The course of fire will be 20 Score rounds at each of 100, 200 and 300 yards.  Bring 80 rounds or so if you preload.  Awards to third place at each yardage and the Jim Latham Perpetual Trophy to the winner of the Grand Agg.  Your chance for fame and glory!  We will shoot the 300 yard match first to allow for shot spotting in summer conditions.

This match has very few equipment rules - No muzzle brakes and no rail guns.  F-Open rifles are more than welcome!  Jim was always a fan of
cross pollination in the shooting sports...

Safety meeting at 8:45, Match begins at 9:00 am sharp and we should be done by 4:00 pm or so.

$40 entry fee - Clubhouse is open if you want to purchase lunch.

Pre registration is required, so please email me ( or Joe ( if you plan to attend and with any questions.

Joe & Mark

A slim turnout of only 6 shooters shot the match, but that 6 included 3 previous winners of the Latham Cup.  Conditions were fairly mild at 300 yards, but things picked up in the building high with fierce mirage and switchy winds as the day went on. 

Special thanks to Richard Nicol, who made the trek from the Republic to the South. 

Thanks also to Pete who ran the targets, to Art who scored and collected our money and to Joe who called the line and provided technical assistance.

Congrats to Art, who took a convincing win in difficult conditions - Fine shooting!

Winners at the various yardages were:
300 - Richard Nicol 1st, Art Harder 2nd, Mark DuMont 3rd.  (Tie broken between Richard and Art.)
200 - Art Harder 1st, Allan Mantler 2nd, Mark DuMont 3rd. 
100 - Art Harder 1st, Mark DuMont 2nd, Allan Mantler 3rd.

Results sorted by the Grand Agg numbers follow...

Watch this space for further updates - Richard has promised one of his more detailed reports!
