Obituary

Member Jimmy Hinton has died.  He did the Club Tax reports for several years and was one of 7 Honorary Members of the Blue and Gray.  In his younger days, he was a High Power competitor with the Army Reserve.  When I began shooting an M1A, my rifle doubled occasionally.  Jimmy adjusted the trigger for me.  He put a heavy pull on it – 6 or 7 pounds.  Regardless of the pull, I shot my only 10 shot clean, standing with it and became Distinguished Marksman with it.  His contributions will be missed.     James Moses

Project Appleseed Shoot

The all-volunteer instructors of Project Appleseed will present a marksmanship clinic scheduled for the Blue & Gray Range for the weekend of August 25/26, 2018.  Focus of the clinic will be teaching and refining solid fundamentals for prone, kneeling/sitting, and standing positions.  Some early American history will also be presented.  Responsible youth welcome.  Observers are welcome (with ear protection).  The Range will be CLOSED for other activities for this event.
