Frazier foursome at the Dixie Double

Four of Frazier Simplex's junior shooters traveled to Anniston, Alabama for the annual Dixie Double. This was a two day, international air rifle competition where each competitor shoots 60 shots offhand each of the two days. Because they use decimal scoring for this type of competition, a perfect score is a 654. The best competitors shoot in the 610 to the 625 range. Also different in this competition is how the final is run. In this final, every competitor that qualifies will start out at zero, making it easier for even the last place qualifier to win the competition.
Representing Frazier Simplex was, Christopher Thomas, Thomas Welch, Mackenzie Wagner and John Paul Grabowski. Many of them shot their personal best during this competition.
