NC: 72nd Annual Black Hawk Open Prone 3200 Report

by Tommy Steadman

Below (and attached in a JPG file) is a snapshot of the winners and the final score board at the 72nd Annual Black Hawk Open SB prone 3200 fired at the Asheville Rifle and Pistol Club, Asheville, NC, on May 26-27. The 37 competitors who fired for record on Saturday and Sunday enjoyed beautiful spring-like weather. But despite the mild weather, conditions were tricky nonetheless – especially at 100 yards — because Asheville has no wind flags and shooters had to depend solely on windmills at the firing line and whatever other natural indications of condition they could detect. As a result, there were no 1600s in either aggregate. Kent Reeve the won metallic sight aggregate with a 1598-125x and Dave Cramer won the any sight aggregates with 1599-144x (Charlie Kemp, Mark DelCotto and Ed Foley also posted 1599s in the any sight aggregate).

The tournament winner was Dave Cramer with a grand aggregate score 3196-253x and took home the lion’s share of the bling and largess. This was Dave’s third Black Open win since 2003.

Immediately below is a compilation of the winners sent this morning by Edie Reynolds.
