The North County Shootout

OCTOBER 7, 2007 – LEOMINSTER, MA – Five contestants were on hand to participate in this annual event. The weather conditions were overcast, cool and a steady drizzle for a good part of the day. Not perfect, but almost any day is a great day for combat.

At the end of round one, Jeff Vader had the early lead posting an 830 point, three cut win. Neil Simpson and Brian Seymour also had round one wins and faced off against each other in round two. Neil managed an airtime win. Lloyd Seymour used a three cut round two win to climb into contention. Going into round three Neil and Lloyd were only separated by ten points. Lloyd got a one cut win over Brian Seymour while Neil managed to do the same in a match with Jeff. Going into round four Lloyd had 1750 points, Neil had 1660 points, Jeff had 1250 points with both Brian and Aaron Seymour just off Jeff’s pace.  In round four Brian and Neil both got three cut wins while in the final match Lloyd got past Jeff with a one cut win. When it all sorted out the final order of finish was Neil (2490pts), Lloyd (2370pts), Brian (1850pts), Jeff (1430pts) and Aaron (1300pts). On this day Aaron took home the Sportsman “gold”.

Thanks go out to Lloyd Seymour who promoted and CD’ed this annual event. Also a special Thank You to Lloyd’s wife, Cheryl, who invited us back to her house, at day’s end, for food and drink. Thank You Cheryl, you treat us way too well.
