If you take a close look at the match results below, you'll notice a couple of interesting things. First of all, you'll see that we had nine shooters on Saturday, and given all the rain and nasty weather we've had lately, that was a great turnout. We were expecting the range to be very muddy, but as it turned out, it wasn't bad at all.

Next, and more importantly, you'll see that the scores between first and second place are separated by exactly 1 X. If you've ever looked at the SR-1 targets we use, you know that the X-ring is not much bigger than a quarter, so that is not an easy shot at 100 yards with an M1 Garand. So congratulations go to Chris Hymen for his score of 278.04 to win the GSM category.

We were finally able to get our first match of the season in on June 20. It was a bittersweet match as we said hello to everyone, commemorated one of the founders of DEGS, John Wallace, and said goodbye to Richard Martinez who is transferring to Quantico as he furthers his Marine Corps career.

Our overall match winner was Joe McMillian who turned in an impressive 289-4X. His score surpassed all other competitors with the Garand as he earned the 2020 John Wallace memorial cup.
