We had a wonderful day for shooting. Bright, high seventies to low eighties for temperature, calm winds. Unfortunately, this resulted in a low turn-out (only six shooters). However, leveraging the electronic targets meant with two relays on only one sling target. We started at 9:00 AM, and finished shooting right at 11:00 AM.
A single notable score was a 599 fired by Chris Whitney using a .223 Remington. A very nice performance.
After three weekends in a row for the Winter Mid-Range Prone League, we conducted the first of the Suburban Mid-Range Prone League matches. Twelve (12) shooters came out for the first of these for 2017. They enjoyed a brisk, but sunny morning. However, they were challenged by a heavy buffeting wind that rocked scores across the board.
The High Any Rifle (Sling) shooter was Jake Bondy, with a 594-31X. Notably, Jake cleaned the first string with a 200-14X. An absolutely outstanding score in the wind we experienced today.
The High F-TR shooter was John Roethlisberger with a 589-28X. Given the wind another outstanding score.
The first Suburban Mid-Range Prone League Match will be held on May 6, 2017 at the Midland County Sportsman's Club.
It will be a 3x600, and start squadding at around 9:15 AM. The match will be conducted on electronic targets. As such, you will not be required to spend time in the pits. Program is here: 2017 Suburban Mid-Range Prone League
The sixth Winter Mid-Range Prone Match will be held on Saturday, April 29, 2017. The weather guessers forecast mid-40's and party cloudy. Should be a good day.
It will be a 2x600, and start squadding at around 9:15 AM. The match will be conducted on electronic targets. As such, you will not be required to spend time in the pits. Program is here: 2017 Winter Mid-Range Prone League Program.
