John C. Garand Match

The Fall Garand Match will be held 29. September on the Blue and Gray 200 yard range. This will be a 50 round Garand match, followed by a 40 round carbine match and ending with 10 rounds on the pistol range. Garand Match: $20, Carbine Match: $15, or fire both for $30. Pistol Match: $FREE w/$30 match purchase…or $5 without.   Garands and Carbines must be “as issued” to be eligible for any awards; any safe rifle can be fired in the “out of competition” category. Set up/sign up starts at 0700, first round down at 0800 or when first relay is full. A Match Program will be sent out soon.  All proceeds from this match go toward the M1s for Vets Program.  This match is subject to being moved or cancelled as the lead reclamation project progresses.   deathbeforef@gmail.com                                                          McAlister

Work Party

The Range will be closed for a Work Party on Oct.27.  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.   Be SURE there are no hot coals in any barrels emptied.           David Howard

Project Appleseed 2018 Results

 From Diana Chambers, Project Appleseed.  We had a great weekend, probably the best event I have ever attended.  Out of 11 shooters, we had 8 new Riflemen and 1 re-qualification.  The remaining 2 shooters were not able to attend on Sunday; I believe they would have qualified if they had been able to shoot.  As skilled as this group was, it was their attitudes that made the weekend so pleasant.  They were open to instruction and were very attentive to the history we taught as well.  As always, we are very grateful to Blue & Gray for allowing us to use your facilities for the weekend.  A couple of your members came by but they were very gracious about the range being closed.  We hope that you will consider having us back again next year.
