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.
