May 18th the L.O.W.G.C Rifle Division held our 100 meter Score match albeit three weeks late due to the winter that wouldn’t end. The weather cooperated with mild conditions, a mix of sun and cloud and moderate winds. 14 keen competitors vied for bragging rights in 3 classes. To give an idea of the degree of difficulty, you get 25 tries to hit a half inch 10 ring at 109 yards.
First Place Rod Jack 220/250 .308
Second Place Bill Gabryluk 192/250 7mm08
Third Place Spencer King 147/250 .30/06

There were some real three way horse races in Varmint Hunter and Varmint for Score/Open Classes with the outcome contested right down to the last target.
Three new Club range records were set. 14 year old Donovan Jack shot the first 50 score target in competition in Varmint Hunter Class with an unfamiliar rifle.
Also in Varmint Hunter Class Jacques Choquette set a new aggregate score of 237/250 beating the previous record by 14 points.
In Varmint for Score/Open class Matt Cyr made no mistakes and shot clean with 250 points out of a possible 250 points.
Good shooting! Thanks to the shooters and volunteers who helped make it a memorable day.

Our Sunday April 27th 100 meter Hunter Benchrest match will be postponed until a later date due to our record breaking winter. Shooters will be notified of the new date by phone, after the road is opened. Thanks!
Last week, without Parliamentary input, the RCMP unilaterally reclassified two types of rifles. All Swiss Arms and most models of the CZ858 are now prohibited. This affects approximately 12,000 members in the firearms community and represents anywhere between 10 and 15 million dollars of private property.
We urge you to act on this immediately. Please contact our Member of Parliament, the Minister of Public Safety, the Minister of Justice and the Prime Minister of Canada Stephen Harper. (No postage required) Tell them the reclassification by the RCMP is unacceptable. The current Firearms Act is biased against responsible Canadian Sportsmen.
Please be polite.
1) It is completely unacceptable for the RCMP to make ordinary Canadians into criminals by quietly reclassifying and prohibiting legally obtained properties without any input from the stakeholders and independent 3rd parties.
2) The way firearms are classified and prohibited is deeply flawed.
3) The current firearms act is highly discriminating against sportsmen and modern semi-automatic sporting firearms. The government needs to recognize that semi-automatic modern sporting rifles are a popular choice of Canadian Sportsmen.
