WAC High Power shooter excels again
As you all know Paul Larson won the Grand Senior category at the National High Power Matches held at Camp Perry this year. This was quiet an accomplishment after being away from the sport for years and resuming shooting with a completely different type of rifle than what we used back in the 80's & 90's.
Let me add a little history about Paul for some of the newer members. Paul is a former President of WAC and was the first President of the FSSA. He was instrumental in personally constructing and paying for some of the existing amenities at the range. He also is a Distinguished Rifleman that he earned through the CMP shooting an M14 before the AR15 took over. A feat in itself.
He has now added another feather in his hat. He set a "Grand Senior National Record" at the midrange prone match at Malabar this month.
Paul still continues to support WAC as he always has. He still does RO duties even when not required to. He helps me with anything related to High Power when called on and speaks highly of WAC at any range he shoots on.
I am personally very proud of Paul because he has been a loyal friend for 25 years and was one of the only two that took me under their wing many years ago to make me a High Power competitor.

WAC shooters at the Pro-Am Championship
July 14 2013 Frostproof FL - The Pro Am is a 300+ shooter competition showcasing the best of the country in action shooting. While navigating the course of fire, all steel targets are knocked down using par time scoring. Each competitor has a set amount of time to knock down as many steel as possible. It is a fast game of strategy, skill, and accuracy.
Once again our Junior action shooting team scored high showing their dedication and skills. Seth Clagg and Jason Katz both placed well in the competition with a 164 and 192 respectively. Although I don't have his score yet, Evan Gerlipp made a good run also.
Several action pistol shooters participated giving a strong presence of the WAC in this sport. Congrats to Dan Benard, Daryl Dickerson, Daryl Roush, Steven Clagg, David Padovan, John Beach, Jay Corn, Keith Dilworth, Shannon Smith, Kristen Aanerud, Scott Noyes, Irene Hayden, Frank Gerlipp, Jordan Ward, Jack Chonsky, April Branam, Ryan Schrader, Sean Schrader, Frank Gaughen, and Cliff Walsh. There were more but I haven't received the complete list yet.
Persevering through the rain and mud we all had fun at the match and made well known the passion and skill of the Wyoming Antelope Club shooters.
