OLD BOLT GUN MATCH:

Our annual Old Bolt Gun Match will be held January 4, 2014. The course of fire will be the usual 50 shot High Power Course that we fire each month. To be eligible for awards, competitors must fire a military rifle with issue sights and stock. ANY military rifle OTHER than the M1, M14/M1A or AR15 may be used. Those wishing to shoot for practice may fire any rifle. This is not an NRA match and scores will not be forwarded to the NRA.

2014 HIGH POWER MATCHES:

There has been a serious decline in participation in the High Power Matches over the past year or two. In 2014 we plan to hold the John C. Garand matches and the work parties on the first Saturday of the month. The other dates will be practice matches with a $5.00 charge to cover the cost of targets. If participation picks up we will resume NRA Approved matches. The Retro, M1 and Old Bolt Gun matches will be conducted as previously.
