Funky Locker Room Report
By Gerry Fleming

Time for a report on the Over and Under Match, (formerly the Bridge and Tunnel).
(Over the hill and under the weather).

Controversy and possible criminal activity mars the match and Harry wasn't even present.

First let it be noted that marine Fleming beat marine Andrews in the semi auto match.
This was on Friday after Fleming sold Andrews some "special 9mm ammo".
Andrews "claimed his gun jammed" and couldn't get off 5 shots.

The trouncing was severe 561-530.
Then on Saturday Fleming's clipboard (with calculator) was shot while sticking 2" above the log at 25 yrds.

Immediately Andrews was suspected but no one had seen him.

An investigation by Pete revealed than Andrews works for Kimber assembling scoped rifles (the truth) and was possibly in the woods behind the pistol range.

DNA samples of the bullet fragment and Andrews lunch plate have been forwarded to BCI and we are awaiting results.

Good to see Sal Matos and Derrick Lopez back at the matches.

When I inquired where Bassett was, Sal said he needed further remedial Sgts training and should be joining us in the future.

Derrick who likes to frequently switch occupations took on the role of drill instructor (military match) and so scarred the shooters with threats of expulsion and worse if there were any late shots that the 12 in 20 at the 7 & 15 yd lines averaged 8 seconds.

This of course caused some very low scores in match 1 and shook the shooters nerves for the rest of the match, possibly causing Andrews to fumble his rounds and lose to Fleming.

Let it be noted that Harry, a retired Colonel with the Army reserve failed to show for the Military match and instead went to Ohio.

Fear of Marine shooters suspected.

Time to start supporting our matches or we are going to lose them as only 22 shooters showed for this match.
