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.

2017 SMRP - Match 2

Our next match of the Suburban Mid-Range League is scheduled for July 15, 2017. Course of fire is a 3x600. The program is available here: 2017 Suburban Mid-Range Prone League.

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.

2017 SMRP - Match 1

Our next match is the May 27, 2017 (the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend), and will be the 2017 Michigan Fullbore Prone Championship.

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
