1961 Grayling Cross the Course Match

06 Oct 2015 6:58 PM | Lusty Cebula (Administrator)

Peter Church found this amongst the late Noel Sugden's material.  Of note is the number of persons shown on the competitor list (309).  Along with the number of persons who were competing in this particular match.  

The results are eighteen pages long.  Notably, this was all hand typed, probably on a manual typewriter.  Maybe they had a adding machine to help with the calculations, but this was almost fifteen years before the first hand calculators, and about a quarter century before the IBM PC.

Look it over and enjoy the nostalgia.

    Very cool, ran down the list I new 31 of these shooters only 3 are still with us. Nice to see my old friend George Forstrum post a 100 with 19 in the first 600 yd match.

    I see match 5 and 11 were 20 shots at 1000 yards, very cool!

    Also Bill Neuman on there, I wonder how he is doing, haven't seen him in a couple years or so.

    I remember some of those shooters from when I was shooting up in Grayling or Camp Custer in the late 1970's and early 80's.
    Can't imagine how much work it was to put on that match.

    I was looking over this 1961 listing of shooters. I think Noel kept this one for a special reason. I noted two shooters;

    Bernice Sugdon Tyro
    Peter Church Marksmen

    Could this have been Bernice’s first match?
