We closed out our 2017 shooting season with another outstanding match. It started out bitter cold: 26 degrees at about 7:30am, but it warmed up nicely as the day went on. In addition to all the familiar faces filling the relays, we had four new shooters on Saturday: Richard Martinez, Tyler Spring, Joseph Grabbert and Bob Balcerski. And one of the new shooters, Richard Martinez, was the match winner in the Garand category. Congratulations! And congratulations also to Dewey Hales for his win in the Modern Military category.

Happy holidays and happy new year to everyone! I hope to see you all on the range again soon!

What a match we had on Saturday! Great turnout, great shooting, great weather--who could ask for anything more? Congratulations to GSM match winner Tony Simonetti, who shot a 277.03 with his 1903A3. You may have noticed that Chris Hymen also shot a 277.03, but he came in 2nd place. Everyone knows that X-count is usually the tiebreaker, but what do you do if that doesn't work? Look at the standing scores! And if those are the same, compare the prone rapid scores, and so on. Great score from both shooters!

Here are the results from our October match. Congratulations to Dewey Hales, who swept both the GSM and Modern Military categories. His GSM score was 281.07 and his Modern Military score was 293.08. Not only that, but his MM score was enough to beat the previous club record, coincidentally also held by Dewey. Congratulations!

Looks like the weather has finally turned in our favor. Last Saturday was a great day to be out on the range. It started a bit foggy for the first relay, but the fog was about gone before they finished their sighters. And by the time the second relay started, we had clear skies and cool(ish) weather. Who could ask for anything more! Congratulations to Dewey Hales, who swept both categories to take home both the GSM and Modern Military gold pins. And welcome to new member Robert Edwards.

It should come as no surprise to anyone that Saturday's match was another hot and humid one. August is pretty consistent that way. Still, we had a great turnout and some stiff competition in the modern and vintage categories. First of all, a big "welcome back" and congratulations to Chris Kurek, who won the GSM gategory with a score of 267.03. And in the Modern Military, Dewey Hales brought home the medal with a score of 292.10, setting a club record in the process.
