I'm fairly sure the 4th from the left, kneeling, is Russ Hooks and the 2nd from right, standing is Eric Keel. Several of the others have familiar faces but I can't put names to them at the moment.

Not sure, but the fellow top row right, looks like Barry Darr, a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away. No offense intended Barry. I met you at the first Coors match in 1982. Same galaxy, just a few years later.

If anyone could supply more information, range and possibly more names etc, I'm sure some beside me would be interested. Thanks

These are some of the details from "ARMS AND THE MAN" that go along with the Election Day Match;

"H. M. Pope whose remarkable shooting after the unfortunate incident which deprived him of all chance for first honors, has already been referred to, shot a Stevens-Pope 33 caliber with a 220 grain bullet muzzle-loaded, 32 inch No. 4 weight full octagon barrel with palm rest. The powder charge was FFG King's Semi Smokeless with No. 1 Du Pont Rifle Smokeless as a priming charge, and Peters No. 2 primers, his bullets were cast 1 part tin to 22 of lead. The rifle is mounted with a Stevens 5 power crosshair telescope. S. B. Adams of the Myles Standish Rifle Club of Portland, Maine was an interested spectator, his club anticipates an active indoor season and will undoubtedly have strong teams in the field with rifle, revolver and pistol. Those familiar with previous Election Day matches will recall the introduction of the telescope sight in 1903, which was allowed by a close vote of the competitors. Last year three competitors were provided with telescopes, Pope, Ross and Humphrey, the winners of first third and sixth places. A strong sentiment in favor of this form of sight has been apparent during the present year and as a result thirteen of the entries used it while a number of the remaining competitors expressed the intention of investigating the telescope proposition in the near future. Dr. Hudson has been in possession of two telescopes for some time past, one with crosshairs and the other with an aperture, but is not as yet prepared to abandon the peep and aperture sights with which he has accomplished such remarkable results. Regarding the palm rest, which at times has been the subject of considerable discussion, L. P. Hansen of Jersey City, NJ not only attests to its value as an aid to steady holding but also in regard to its right to be recognized as a legitimate device in connection with a rifle. But it can be said that it is not gaining in popularity with those who use the more practical military and hunting rifles and are loath to adopt it. The physical conformation of the individual determines largely the advantage to be gained by the use of the palm rest. We have in mind one rifleman who owing to his relatively short legs long body and short upper arm finds it impossible to rest his elbow on the hip even with the aid of a palm rest.

Dr. Hudson on the other hand, finds that the hip rest position without the aid of a palm rest is the most natural one for him to adopt a slight extension of the forend allowing the rifle to rest on his fingertips at the proper angle. H. M. Pope is similarly built, and though he uses the palm rest, the length from the fore stock is unusually short."

Interesting about the scopes... mostly 3X to 5X, with just one lone 6X listed in the bunch.   Smiley
