Keep in mind that those people who take the time to attend the meeting will be the ones who have the say on who will run your club for the next year. If you want a voice in that process – and every member should – come to the meeting and cast your vote. Let your voice be heard!
It was another good turnout of shooters – including two new shooters – at the Short range on the morning of January 28, 2017, for the scheduled Centerfire Defender Pistol Shoot.
At the ten yard line in front of each shooter was a single target frame with two bulls-eye targets. Here each shooter laid out ten rounds, loaded five, and fired at each target as instructed by the match director. Then they loaded and fired their remaining five rounds at the targets as instructed.
Then each shooter moved to the twenty-five yard line their remaining forty rounds of ammo. Here they had in front of them four bulls-eye targets. Here each shooter loaded five rounds and fired at the targets as instructed. They repeated the process of loading and shooting five rounds as instructed until all forty rounds had been expended. Each shooter went through the program twice for a total of 100 rounds fired.
After all, the total bullet hits were counted, shooting honors for this event went to:
1st Place Tim Delgrosso
2nd Place Neil Dozler
3rd Place James Krehmke
As said many times, my thanks to all those who came out, helped with set up and tear down, and took part in this fun shooting event. And has also been said many times, those who stayed away missed out on a lot of shooting fun and great pistol practice. So mark your calendars and come on out and give this fun shoot a try.

It was another good turnout of shooters at the at the Indoor range on the evening of January 10, 2017, for the scheduled Rimfire Defender Pistol shoot. As the shooters took to the firing line in front of them in the target holders were four different colored bulls-eye targets. As instructed by the match director each shooter loaded the announced number of rounds and fired at the targets in the order given – round and round and up and down, side to side, back and across, etc. – until they had gone through their first fifty rounds. After the first round of shooting was concluded, the targets were replaced, the shot ones scored, and the shooting fun continued for another fifty rounds. When all the targets scored, and the range cleaned up, shooting honors for the evening’s fun went to:
1st Place Jim Garges
2nd Place Allen Freeman
3rd Place Doug Harp
As said before, my thanks to those who came out and enjoyed the evening’s shooting fun and challenges. And as before, those of you who stayed home missed out on a lot of shooting fun, great pistol practice, and really good fellowship. So mark your calendars as this shoot is held every month. Come on out and join in the fun.

At each general membership meeting, the member number of a member is drawn from the BIG barrel. If that member is current on his/her dues and present at the meeting, then they are rewarded with money. The amount is based on what has accumulated in the POT-OF-GOLD up to that time with a maximum of $500.00. If they are not present then they get the crying towel. At the January meeting, member number 2056 belonging to Bruce Bennett was drawn. He was not in attendance at the meeting and so lost out on collecting $500.00. So, Bruce, it is boo hoo and the crying towel to you. The pot for the next meeting will remain at $500.00.
