Jason Kuchel came 27th in the Queens and adopted Highlander, Steve Durham, did not disgrace himself, taking out many range/aggregate medals. All in all it was an enjoyable shoot. Congratulations to Betta and her assistants (Jean, Kelly(Chit Chat) and of course master of ceremonies Greg Gartner for doing such a sterling job as Chief Range Officer. Sad to see he’s retiring. Not to mention the other Emcee, Bruce Scott – sterling performance, as always.
