Spring 2018 – 100 Meter Score Match

Rifle Division Holds Spring 2018 100 Meter Score Match

Sixteen competitors attended the April 29th Hunter Bench Rest Match. The best part was the tailwind gusting to 50 k. It was strong enough to blow over wind flags. This had to be the most challenging 100-meter match yet as far as wind conditions. Hunter Calder from Fort Frances won Hunter Class with a borrowed rifle in his very first Benchrest competition. Also, Al Smith the old varmint hunter from a way back won Varmint Hunter Class with a rifle unfamiliar to him.

All scores out of 250 possible points.

Hunter Class
1st Hunter Calder 232 – 3X
2nd Rod MacDonell 216
3rd Brian Prouty 216

Varmint Hunter Class
1st Al Smith 230 – 3X
2nd Katelynn Jack 227
3rd Jacques Choquette 225

Varmint for Score/Open Class
1st Dwayne Cyr 249 – 5X
2nd Calvin Yanchycki 248 -13X
3rd Phil Nick 247 – 10X

Thanks to the competitors who traveled from near and far. Thanks to Rod Jack and family for pitching in with the PA system and barbequing and running targets. Thanks to Official Scorer Al Carlson who had a good handle on the scoring duties, and thanks to RSO Dave Neilan and the referees for helping run a smooth event.

Announcement

Annually, at this time of year since 2013, the Biathlon Division have groomed their trails and have commenced snow training. Training sessions normally last about 45 minutes.

The plan is to maintain a plowed road from the highway to the club house and provide ample parking.

The road leaving the Club House parking lot will be barricaded to vehicle traffic to protect the groomed Biathlon trail from damage.

Please walk on the left side of the groomed trail which is solid like a sidewalk for easy walking.

There will be a plastic snow boggan provided for hauling your equipment to the firing line to shoot.

Good luck to our Biathlon Division athletes. May they meet their goals in 2018 and I am looking forward to hearing about their successes and achievements in the media.

Thanks for your understanding.

Monday – Pistol has priority
Wednesday – Rifle has priority
Thursday afternoon – Biathlon has priority

All other days/times are on a first come first serve basis.

Again, thank you and we wish each and every one of you a Merry Christmas and all the very best in 2018.
