On Saturday, May 27, 2017 the Midland County Sportsman's Club ran the 2017 Michigan Fullbore Rifle Championship.  We had a beautiful day, and twenty-one (21) competitors enjoyed gentle conditions for the match.

The course of fire included ten (10) shots at 300, 500 and 600 yards, followed by a single fifteen (15) shot string at 600 yards.

Our turn-out was sufficient to provide three (3) State Champions:  Target Rifle (the dudes with the slings), F-Open, and F-TR.  Target Rifle was won by Peter Church with a 449-35X,  Pete was chased by Jake Bondy with a 447-19X.  F-Open was won by Marcel Bollinger with a 445-21X.  F-TR was won by John Pierce with a 448-28X, who out Xed John Droelle, who posted a 448-21X.

Left to right:  Marcel Bollinger, F-Open Champion; John Pierce, F-TR Champion; and Peter Church, Target Rifle Champion.
