The first Suburban Mid-Range Prone league was held on Sunday, May 17, 2015.  We had eleven shooters, who had the opportunity to shoot on Silver Mountain targets.  By and large the experience was positive.

The match ran on three targets with four relays and consisted of a 3x600.  We started around 9:15 AM.  All four relays completed at 12:10 PM.  Right around three (3) hours to complete four relays of a 3x600.

Note:  The Suburban Mid-Range Prone League starts on Sunday, May 17, 2015.  We are shooting on Sunday to give our competitors an opportunity to shoot on Electronic Targets.  We will have 2 or 3 Silver Mountain Targets operational for the Sunday shoot (3x600).

If you are available come on out and try the targets.  This is likely the wave of the future, and will eliminate trips to the pits, except for set-up and tear down.

Remember that date:  Sunday, May 17, 2015!!

Match 4 - May:  2015 WMRP Match 4

Six shooters on an almost perfect day to shoot.  Of the six of us, only Jake Bondy shot a score worthy of note:  200-15X with his 6XC.  Excellent score no matter what you used.

Match 3 - April:  2015 WMRP Match 3

No particular news (I was out of town).

Match 2 - April:  2015 WMRP Match 2

Outstanding day to shoot.  Relatively gentle breezes, temperatures in the 40's, sun (quite bright for good sight pictures).  Six shooters enjoyed the day.  Two sling, four F-Class.

Next potential match is Saturday, April 18, 2015.  Watch for an email on Friday the 17th for information.

Match 1 - March:  2015 WMRP Match 1

An interesting day.  The weather man had given up on rain, but when we arrived at the range, there was rain.  Not a lot of rain, but rain nonetheless.  After about a 45 minute delay, we finally got started, and everyone got to try to work the bugs out of their equipment, and themselves.

John Pierce shooting F-TR seemed to make it happen quicker amongst the F-TR shooters posting a 392-13.  Jake Bondy, one of the two sling shooters finished up with another 392, but with only 12 X's.  For the cool overcast conditions both did well.
