Friday October 24, 2014 was Day One of the Pyramyd Air Cup, held at the Tusco Rifle Club, 2132 Midvale Mine Road SE, Dennison, OH. This is a spacious facility with many undercover shooting positions and was well chosen for the event. Pyramyd Air had obviously put a lot of time and effort into making this event a success.
As predicted, the weather was perfect, sunny and 64 degrees. It is just what was needed for a weekend of air gun competition!
In the morning, the Practice Range was open from 9:00AM for sighting in and trying out demo guns. There were plenty of targets and space to shoot them.
The Pyramyd Payday Challenge was held in the afternoon. Competitors in the Payday Challenge tested their skills by shooting targets at varying distances. Every one that participated shot the same three air rifles, that really made it a fair challenge!
Each shooter had a total of 10 shots.
– 2 Shots on the 50 yard target
– 3 Shots on the 75 yard target
– 5 Shots on the 100 yard target
All targets were 1.5-inch Kill zone field targets. Each target knocked over counted as 1 point, with the most knock downs winning. And the winner won $200.00 from Pyramyd Air.
As you can see, there was a good turnout of shooters and a good time was had by all on Day One.
Day Two – Saturday – will see the Offhand Competition in the morning followed by the first half of the Field Target Competition and the Saturday evening banquet.
