To all the volunteers who turned out for the club
work day on March 17, 2002!
GARAND DAY MATCH MAY
reason we call it Garand Day instead of the normal John C. Garand is that
we are welcoming all shooters to try this fun match. You don’t have to have an M1 to shoot. Part of the course of fire is “rapid fire” so your rifle
will need to be capable of a reload during the 10 round strings and have
iron sights. Course of fire
is all shot at 200 yards. (Ammo not provided)

and tornado warnings were the byword of the day. To quote Jerry Boydstun, Match Director: “If I hadn’t
been in charge, I wouldn’t have been there”.
Lets hope for better weather next month.
the Match Director, Richard King, reported they finally had a good day for
shooting. A real challenge
was presented to the “funny guns” by using a 300 yard target for the
500 and 600 yard lines. A
2-1/2” X ring may have caused some second thoughts for the “big gun”
shooters who missed the match despite excuses such as work and prairie dog
Quinn, shooting an M1A, won the Semi-Auto/Irons with a 191/186 edging out
David Wilson who ran a close second.
New shooters may not always be new shooters.
DeLatte (aka new shooter) won the Tactical / class with a 199/193.
Hope no one bet with him. Richard King shooting a .222 mag. took
the Custom and Any/Any with a 198/192.
reports the “rack” M1s want their own class and the Black Powder
shooters want to join in the fun. The
April 14th match will see the addition of a 300 yard stage.
Mid Range matches have rapidly gained in popularity over the last two
years. It is the ideal way
for a shooter to become introduced to the sport of rifle competition.
If you have a rifle that is just sitting on the shelf and you want
to shoot, grab some ammo and come on out.
