Four riflemen met at our range at 0900, Saturday, Dec. 4, to shoot our regular weekly high power match.
Dave Spearing had last week's targets patched, and the snow cleaned out at the targets and at the range shelter. We all thank him.
The temperature was 26 degrees. It was snowing and the light wind was from the north-east.
We all fired the A Course of the John C. Garand Match, as fired at the National Matches.
Dave Spearing won the match with his .30-'06 caliber 1917 Enfield with 89-2X's+91+83=263-2X's. He would have won a bronze medal if he had been shooting at Camp Perry.
Chuck Chernoff fired his '03-A3 Springfield and hit 88+84+82=254. I fired my '03-A3 Springfield, made by Remington, and hit 86+87-1X+68=241-1X. Ron Troch fired his Model 447.62X54R Mosin-Nagant and hit 93-1X+85+61=239-1X.
We all went to the fine Willow Glen Caf for hot beverages after the match. Carrie and Aryana poured and Spearing paid. We all thank them.
On Tuesday night, Dec. 7, five hand gun shooters fired in the 10th week of the 25 week winter league.
George Newton won first and second place in the match with the only center fire scores of 281-4X's and 263-2X's.
Chuck Chernoff was third in the match and first in rim fire with 256-2X's.
Dick Bailer was 2nd in rim fire with 197. I was first in two handed rim fire because I was the only one. Ron Tunney shot for practice.
Don't forget the club's winter trap league, beginning 0900 on Sunday, Jan.2, 2011.
