But that did not deter 13 shooters from attending, including Calvin Yanchycki, President of Benchrest Shooters Canada, reigning 2013 Canadian Nationals Benchrest Champion in aggregate for smallest 5 shot group and winner of the 2013 Manitoba Provincials. Calvin made the 4 ½ hour trek from Brandon to attend our Benchrest for score match.

There were a few high points that made the day very interesting. 13 year old Donovan Jack from Emo really beared down on his last target, scoring 243 which boosted him into second place in Sporter class ahead of his dad and the other adults.
A couple of shooters who rarely compete showed up with some serious equipment and made for an interesting 4 way battle in Unlimited Class. The lead changed hands with every target shot but in the end Phil prevailed.
A big thank you to the competitors who came out to support the Club and the Division thanks all the volunteers who performed their duties during the match to make it a success.
Our next match is a 200 meter Hunter Benchrest match August 25th.
Thanks to everyone that came out and made our first ever Zombie Shoot a success! We stopped the Zombies in their tracks 🙂 Here are a few photos from the invasion.

Updated with new date!
The time has come my friends. The zombies that escaped from Alberta have arrived in our area and now is a call to arms to deal with the situation.
Two zombies were spotted hitchhiking through Manitoba last week and are presumed in our area. The ringleader of the gang, and the third in the trio was spotted at our gun club on two occasions and once at one of our long time member/executives home on Tetro Road.
The threat appears real and this is a call to our members and the general public to deal with this issue.
Saturday July 13, at 11:00am is showdown time. This will happen at the hand gun division range. Members and the general public are invited. Range Safety Officers will be in attendance and all are invited. Even if you have never fired or handled a firearm an Instructor will guide you through the shooting process.
More info to come!
The Board of Directors would like to give special recognition to one of our sustaining members, Lee Blyth, for his contributions to the Club. This time Lee and crew gave up the better part of their weekend replacing our tired Club house roof.
