First shots went downrange at 8:06 AM to begin this year's Regional. Temperatures ultimately reached the upper 80's but it was the humidity that you could really feel. The recent storms in the area could not deter 51 shooters, many on their way to Camp Perry, from enjoying the sunshine and calm conditions.

Jim O'Connell jumped out to an early lead with his 196 offhand. Closely following him were Iowans Larry Walraven and Bill Besgrove with their respective 194 and 193. Illinois honor was upheld by Bob DelCotto shooting a 192 while Oklahomans were represented by Kent Shomber's 192.

Jim's Tube gun was working well as he delivered the only 200 in sitting. Walraven fell short with a 197 to remain in second while DelCotto dropped two here. Kent Shomber also had a 198 while Besgrove gave up four. Montana native Nick Mowrer surged forward with a 199 to find himself in sixth overall.

At the 300 yard line O'Connell finally gave up his hold on match wins although he still retained a six point lead.  DelCotto and O'Connell both had 199's but Bob had 11x's to Jim's 9. Jack Bockman was the only other shooter with a 199 here.

Going back to 600, O'Connell had a six point lead on DelCotto. Walraven was seven back with Mowrer and Besgrove nine points off the pace. At this distance O'Connell returned to his winning ways by only letting his 17th shot leak out for a nine. Jeff Dimon and Bob Levine both had 198's while Mike Melendy, Cliff Adams, and Joel Sylvia dropped three.

Jim O'Connell finished strong earning a NRA Gold Regional medal, brand new White Oak Armament service rifle upper, and a certificate for a credit towards Camp Perry fees. Bob DelCotto was second and Nick Mowrer was third. Jim's score of 794 was only one point shy of his own Senior national record.
