Special thanks to the NRA Foundation for their continuing support in keeping this camp affordable for the participants. Please support a Friends of the NRA banquet/fundraiser near you.

Please spread the word, as this will help make it a terrific camp! Precision Air Rifle (Advanced and Intermediate line, if there is enough interest), and Small Bore shooters will all benefit from our great coaches and classes.

Final Election Reminder

One more time let all be reminded that the annual election of club officers will take place at the February 7, 2017 General Membership meeting.  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! 

Man braves elements to shoot poor defenseless paper targets.

John Hoffman decided to brave the weather to go shooting. He had the range all to himself when I left from taking photo’s of the club in the snow.  I requested to post his photo as proof that he braved the elements to have a good day at the range.  Hope you’re range time was productive and that the cold wasn’t too bad.  Our new roof on the cook shack should have provided some protection from the elements, as it seemed to be holding up nicely against the weight of the snow and ice.  We also had a visitor of the four legged type that snuck across the path behind me when I went for pictures of the long range.  They weren’t there when I went down but had magically appeared when I was walking back to the car to get warm.

Elections are Coming

The annual election of club officers will take place at the February 2017 General Membership meeting.  Although that may seem right now to be a long way off, it will be here before you know it.  Therefore, it is not too early to be thinking about who you might want to manage your club in the coming year.

The officers of the club consist of the positions of President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasure, Executive Officer, Outdoor Range Officer, Indoor Range Officer, and three Trustees.  If you would like to be a candidate for one of these positions, or would like to nominate an individual to be a candidate for a position, please contact the club secretary.    

Also at this time, nominations are being accepted for Member of the Year and Life Member recognition.  Recognition of any individual(s) selected by the Executive Committee will occur at the February meeting.

These honorary awards are based on an individual’s service to the club.  To be considered for Member of the Year an individual must be a current member and have throughout the prior year given outstanding service to the club above and beyond the ordinary.  For Life Member consideration the individual must have at least 10 years membership in the club and throughout that time have given sustained and substantial service to the club.

If you know of someone who should be considered for recognition, please contact the Secretary with the individual’s name and your reasons why that individual should be considered for recognition.

Centerfire Defender Pistol Shoot

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.

Rimfire Defender Pistol Shoot

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.
