Executive Committee Meeting

The November meeting will be held at 6:00 p.m. on November 13th at Ted’s BBQ, 8780 Madison Blvd, Madison, AL 35758 (Next to Krystal).  Those planning to have a meal should be there by 5.00.

Precision Match

Note that the November Precision Match will be held on the 2nd Saturday rather than the 3rd.

John C. Garand Match

The Fall Garand Match will be held on FRIDAY 23 November on the Blue and Gray 200 yard range. This will be a 50 round Garand match, followed by a 40 round carbine match and ending with 10 rounds on the pistol range. Garand Match: $20, Carbine Match: $15, or fire both for $30. Pistol Match: $FREE w/$30 match purchase…or $5 without.   Garands and Carbines must be “as issued” to be eligible for any awards; any safe rifle can be fired in the “out of competition” category. Set up/sign up starts at 0700, first round down at 0800 or when first relay is full. A Match Program will be sent out soon.  All proceeds from this match go toward the M1s for Vets Program.  This match was moved due to the lead reclamation project.   deathbeforef@gmail.com                                                    McAlister

Work Party

The Range will be closed for a Work Party on Oct.27.  If you are able to help out, the following tools will be useful: shovel, garden rake, weed eater, hammer and electric drill/screwdrivers.

NOTE:  Trash barrels always need emptying independent of the work parties.  Let me know how many you have emptied for work time.   Be SURE there are no hot coals in any barrels emptied.           David Howard

Indoor Pistol

The date of the indoor pistol shoots at Larry’s has been changed to the 2nd Tuesday.

Smallbore Match

A smallbore match is scheduled for Nov. 17th.  If you plan to attend and are not on Brian Hunter’s e-mail list, it would be good to notify him on garandmatch@yahoo.com so you can be notified of weather cancellations etc.

Frozen Chosin

The Classic Frozen Chosin match is back at the Dam on the 8th of December.  The Frozen Chosin will be back on the 8th of December with a 50 round Garand Match followed by a 50 round Carbine Match. Both matches will be fired on the 100 yard range like all previous Frozen Chosins.  Match grade as well as rack grade Garands and Carbines can be fired in these matches. All rifles must comply with CMP standards. If you don’t have a Garand and would like to come shoot the match with one, a loaner Garand or two will be available along with ammunition (no reloads in loaner guns) at club cost.  Most any safe rifle can be fired out of competition if you just want to come shoot in the match. Range fees are $15 if you have correct change and $20 if you don’t. Sign up / set up will start at 8:30 and first round down at 9:00.   Any questions can be directed to deathbeforef@gmail.com   Send ‘em early as I don’t check that inbox very often.                                      mac

Project Appleseed 2018 Results

 From Diana Chambers, Project Appleseed.  We had a great weekend, probably the best event I have ever attended.  Out of 11 shooters, we had 8 new Riflemen and 1 re-qualification.  The remaining 2 shooters were not able to attend on Sunday; I believe they would have qualified if they had been able to shoot.  As skilled as this group was, it was their attitudes that made the weekend so pleasant.  They were open to instruction and were very attentive to the history we taught as well.  As always, we are very grateful to Blue & Gray for allowing us to use your facilities for the weekend.  A couple of your members came by but they were very gracious about the range being closed.  We hope that you will consider having us back again next year.
