Brutal, just plain Brutal.  16 shooters.  Son Carl won light gun score and took 4th in Two Gun overall.  I took 5th in 2 gun overall.

37 degrees and crosswind 18-25 MPH gusting.  Saturday was cancelled; rain and snow.  Match 1 and 2 were Sunday but we only shot Match 1.  Heard it was even worse at Match 2 in the afternoon.

Long underwear and snowmobile suits were the dress of the day.  Shot the Savages as the new rifles we have weren't ready.
