Noteworthy event

The York contingent arrived home this morning after shooting the very challenging Fort Benning 3 gun. Paul Nowotarski, Gary Swope, Brian Cashman, Jim Sheehy and myself all had a blast, and all shot respectably. The match was demanding and fun. We shot pistol, rifle and shotgun (sometimes all together) stages that included rifle out to 420 yards, and up to 22 slugs at a time, and trenches, and barbed wire and all kinds of crazy stuff. We got to shoot a SAW machine gun, an M203 grenade launcher and we got to ride in a Stryker.

But the big news is that our very own Greg Jordan (aka wonder boy, aka slumber boy, aka scarface) finished a very close to winning 3rd overall in a really tough field of competitors. He picked up a Remington/Bushmaster ACR off the prize table for his efforts. And he made it into the FNH shootoff where he won the first round beating Clint Upchurch and won a FN SLP shotgun. He lost the second round by the narrowest of margins to the guy who won the whole shootoffs.

His hard work really paid off and he is on his way to the top. A 3rd place finish will only encourage him to work even harder than he already does. Congratulate him when you see him.
