Four airgunners participated in the Morro Bay Airgunner's October 2019 FT match. I was keeping an eye on temperatures/winds/climate to note what to likely expect at the 2020 Nationals to be held at the SLSBA range one year from now. Skies were clear with temperatures in the high 50's while setting up (around 8-9am). Winds were variable. Temps were cool/comfortable throughout the match increasing to about 74F by noon. We usually have a mixture of Hunter/Open/Freestyle at these small matches, and we don't usually separate by Division/Class. I set very easy offhand and kneeling targets to get everyone's confidence up. Vince and I cleaned the standing and kneeling shots, but the winds got us on some sitting shots. We have been having matches here for 7 years and have yet to see someone clean an entire FT course. My two misses were on 1" targets in the 40-45 yard range. Those 1" (25mm) targets can be very difficult in the wind.
