The last day of the aggregate is tomorrow. an English Match at 100 yards. Tarl Kempley is in the lead for the agg, with Kevin Nevius in top five. Good weather with some terrible conditions-mirage and whirling winds.
The team is in high spirits-mostly the local brews, with an occasional gin and tonic to break the monotony.
Lots of formal dinners and protocol.
The Roberts will be shot on Friday at 2PM-9AM EDT. I will report soon after by phone to Erik.
