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.
1st Hunter Calder 232 – 3X
2nd Rod MacDonell 216
3rd Brian Prouty 216
Varmint Hunter Class
1st Al Smith 230 – 3X

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.
“Kenora’s Tim Wehner and Jennifer Findlay competed in the Calforex Cup in Red Deer, Alberta this past weekend, and have come home with medals around their neck. …. Wehner took the time to thank the Kenora Nordic and Biathlon Club, as well as the Lake of the Woods Gun Club for their support.”

On behalf of myself, our children, and grandchildren, I would like to give a big thank you to the members of the LWGC that put this memorial shoot together in memory of Gord. He would have been very proud. What a great send off! We will all miss him.
