The 2nd annual West Coast Piston Field Target Championships were held this last weekend on the SLSBA/Morro Bay Airgunner field target course. Weather was in the 70's for the entire weekend, sunny on Saturday and overcast on Sunday. This is a springer/piston-only match where the FT community breaks out their break barrels, side-levers, under-levers - any springer or nitro piston gun, for a fun weekend of field target. 19 competitors took up the challenge.

Saturday's course was set with all full size kill zones (40mm), giving even Basic Break Barrel shooters, and new shooters a chance to hit a few targets. The average difficulty factor on Saturday's course, without wind, was about 19T. The sunny day brought mostly quarting winds from the northwest. Most lanes have some wind exposure at various times of the morning. There were positionals and a few 50+ yard targets to challenge everyone. Saturday's match had some great scores with Kelly Hawe, Jim Poh , and Terry Eannetta at 53, 52, and 51 points respectively. Jeff Carmello, Son Lu, and Mark Kauffman were close behind at 50 points each.

Sunday's course was more difficult with a dozen reduced size (15mm and 25mm) targets. The average difficulty factor on Sunday's course, without wind, was about 24T. Winds were mostly coming from the southwest on this overcast day. Everyone was squaded by scores with their next closest competitor from the previous day. SLSBA club member John Bergquist competed on Sunday only, and shot the top score of that day with a 51. Kelly Hawe's 50 score was enough for the overall win. Son Lu, also at 50, moved up a couple of spots to take second. Mark Kauffman took third as well as high scoring Senior. Darren Taylor was the high score in Basic Break Barrel.

The next West Coast Piston Championships is planned for August 18 & 19th, 2018!
