Anniston, AL -( The 13th annual Western Creedmoor Cup was held at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility in Phoenix, Arizona 14-18 October.

Warm weather greeted the competitors at the beginning of the matches with temperatures reaching toward 100 degrees. The desert weather can be a bit unusual and a rare storm did appear during the matches bringing rain and lightning which caused an hour delay one day, and a brief but strong sand storm that hit the range shortly after cease-firing on another day. None of this took away from the fun and enthusiasm of the competitors or the match staff.

The Cup matches kicked-off with the 4-man team match. A total of 13 teams, 9 service rifle and 4 match rifle competed. California Condors-Fisher, a service rifle team, posted the high overall score for the match – 1544-31X, while Remington Huntsville won the match rifle team posting a 1529-43X. Individually, Fritz Hempelmann posted a very nice 391-10X.
