Weather was rain off and on today, but conditions were on the whole better and the aggs reflected it. Depending on the bench you were on though, you could still find yourself in the mixing bowl. Stretching out to 200m tomorrow. Should be interesting to see what effect the tall concrete walls have once the bullet passes the end of the wall at 100m.

Well it is all said and done.  Gene Bukys repeats as World Champ and Team USA 1 takes home the gold as well.  Congrats to them.

Congrats to Vera on her top 10 finish in the 2 Gun as well. 

To all the team Canada members, THANK YOU for representing Canadian Benchrest at the Worlds.  I look forward to hearing all kinds of stories and seeing some pictures.

Have a safe trip home and may we se you at a range soon.

Saturday is the fun shoot! 10 shot groups at 200. Considering how challenging things were with 5 shot groups, 10 should be a panic.

Vera was in top form. We are all very proud of her. Kudos to her for her 10th place in the 2-Gun!

That was a tough shoot by the looks of it. Vera did very well, a .231 aggregate in the 2 gun, wins the lv 100 and has a 215 aggregate in the hv aggregate and still finishes 10th overall, what a heartbreak!
 Congratulations everyone and have a great time tomorrow. Don't forget to have some fun while you are out there!

Another fantastic performance by a Canadian to report! Bill Mitchell won the HV 200 Yd 10 shot agg, plus set a record for the smallest group. Closing ceremonies take place tonight.

Great to see Team Canada go out with a strong finish.......

Congrats Bill on the 200m HV 10 shot win and for the new 10 shot record that was previously held by Gammon.

Thanks for clarifying this Bill.  I just figured they would have converted it.

I see though what you are getting at.  You shot your record in the US right??????? at 200 yards, which is measured in inches.

So the WBSF is using to sets of records, Imperial/standard and metric.

Later,  Calvin

Oh and welcome home.

Bill, I am doing the math 42 + 32=74. Take that away and you still have enough room for your loading trailer. How did you sleep ? :)
 So the army guys with the subs didn't stop to frisk you when they seen you walking around with your gun in your hand?

Found this write up on the Worlds. It is in Target Shooter, which is an online magazine. Worth having a look. Starts on page 6: http://content.yudu.com/A1u4w2/tsoct2011/resources/index.htm?referrerUrl=
