 Range Work

Range mowing has begun.  Normally this will be done on Wednesday afternoons, but conditions may require other times.  Mowing has priority. If you get there while mowing is in progress, wait until the mowing is complete or come back another day..

Work Party

The Range will be closed for a Work Party on April 30.  If you are able to help out, the following tools will be useful: shovel, garden rake, weed eater, hammer and electric drill/screwdrivers.

Donation

Many thanks to Ray Meyers for his donation of several thousand rounds of 22 LR to the Pot Shots Junior Club.

 May 28 High Power

Blue and Gray Benchrest(ish):  The upcoming event at the dam on 5/28/22 will be an experimental, (let’s see how this works out) benchrest match fired on the 200 yard range.  The course of fire will be 20 rounds in 10 minutes.  There will be two centerfire categories – .30 cal. Service rifles (no scope) and anything else.  We will also have a category for rimfire rifles.  This match will be fired from the three concrete benches, so you will need to furnish whatever you need to complete your course of fire (bags, stool, etc.)  If you had rather shoot on the ground, prone, we will accommodate you in this match.  The service rifle category will fire on the MR-52 target, while all other centerfires will shoot on MR-31 centers.  The rimfires will shoot on the 200-yard rimfire target (whatever number it is).  You can fire the course as many times as you like, using the same rifle, or a different rifle (or two.or more).  Range fee is $5 per match.  Setup will start at 7:30 and first round down will be at 8:00.  Questions?      deathbeforef@gmail.com        mac

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
