    Are you ready for the most fun since you took off your training wheels? Can you ride a bike? Can you shoot a pistol? Do you want to ride a bike and shoot a pistol? If yes, then you're at the right place... the place for a bike-N-shoot race.

    I'll be doing this about once a week, in order to encourage more turnout for the event.

    After being mudded out 2 times in a row, we held the 9th Bike-n-Shoot on Saturday, Aug 6th. We had 6 participants, including 3 newbies, 2 adults and 1 youth. In spite of the recent rain, the course was dry, and the dust was kept down. James M. and I mowed the range area, and the first ¼ mile or so of the course, but didn’t check the whole course, and discovered on race day, that a significant part of it had waist-high weeds from the recent rainfall. Probably should have mentioned the need for the riders to bring a machete for use on the first lap.
    The dried grass, however, proved too much for Lynnes allergies, and she was forced to retire with a nasty asthma attack.
    New youth rider Max Simikat is moving over from BMX to BNS, and rode the event on his Mongoose BMX bike, and shot using a .357 pistol. I imagine there is now some agitation for a suspended mountain bike, and, since I let him try mine, a Ruger .22.
    Results:

    No. Name Miss 1 Miss 2 Miss 3 E.T Total hits Finish

    7 Paul K-S 5 3 2 52.49 5 1
    8 Jim Schultz 3 5 5 61.06 2 2
    39 Cliff Collins 3 3 2 70.37 7 3
    40 Jordan K-S 0 2 0 72 13 4
    41 Max Simakat 3 4 5 99.5 3 5
    34 Lynne Collins DNF-Asthma 6


    Miss 1,2, and 3 is the number of targets missed on each leg. E.T. is in minutes. Note that Jordan is a youth rider, and had he not thrown a chain, which Cliff graciously helped him with, he would have finished 3rd. Youth riders have had the option of shooting a .22 rifle, with open sights, but this looks like too much of an advantage. In the future, unless there’s a big demand for rifles from the youth, they will shoot pistols, just like everybody else. I’ve seen Jordan shoot a pistol. This will not be much of a handicap for him.
