Thanks to Work Party

Last weekend work was completed on a general Pistol Range overhaul. The sacrificial shielding protecting the dueling tree and falling plate bunkers was replaced, the bunker roof was repaired, new target boards installed, general cleanup, the outhouse was leveled the and coated with wood preservative.

On behalf of all the pistol shooters, I’d like to thank the work crew.

May 26th, 2019 Rimfire Benchrest Match Results

Despite the cold dreary start with temps just above freezing and the wind out of the north east, 16 hardy competitors attended. Some wore long John’s and others wished they did.

2nd Rod Jack 750 – 43X

3rd Grant Schick 748 – 32X

Although 1st and 2nd place are statistically tied in points and X dots, the first shooter to miss an X dot takes second. The range record for Unlimited Class of 750 – 42X set by Rod Jack July 29th, 2018 fell to Ron McDaniel.
