The Range will be closed for a Work Party on Oct. 26th. 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 credit. Be SURE there are no hot coals in any barrels emptied. David Howard
August 31st 100 Yard Match
The August match is a 50 round National Match Course that will be fired on the 100-yard range with set up starting at 7:30 and first round down range at 8:00. This match is open to any safe rifle and will be fired like the 100-yard matches have always been, with all targets set on one backer and only a single trip down range to score. There will be some awards with High Scoring Iron Sighted Rifle being the big (meaning only) payout. Fee for this match is $15 exact change (cash only) …if all you have is a 20, then your fee is $20 as no change is available. This match should be done by 9:30, so if you are in a hurry or want to beat the heat, get your crusty rifle out of the closet and come shoot this match with us.
Smallbore Prone Match
A Smallbore Prone Match will be held at B&G range 12 October, starting 0830. F Class shooters as well as prone shooters are encouraged, record shots are fired single shot. The match will consist of three 20 round targets at 50 yards, three 20 round targets at 100 yards, each target with a time limit of 20 minutes, for a cumulative total of 120 shots for record with unlimited sighters on the sighting bull. Shooters are encouraged to bring their own wind flags to supplement the limited number of wind flags placed forward of the firing line. Bring your own Pop up to shoot in the shade. Generally matches are finished by 13:00. An e-mail indicating interest in the match would be helpful, in the case of a weather cancellation. Brian Hunter
