High Power Rifle Comments Off on High Power Match for August 12th, 2017

I called off the High Power Match.  I am thinking thunderstorms will abound about the time we are ready to shoot.  I have notified all the shooters that usually show up.  If you would put a notification on the website, I would appreciate it.

Regards,

Dave Craft

WPGC Rimfire Steel Match Scores for 02 AUG 2017

Rimfire Steel Comments Off on WPGC Rimfire Steel Match Scores for 02 AUG 2017

Hello Shooters!

Well, the weather was great for the match.  Not too warm, a little humid, contrary to what the weather guessers at Weather Bug projected.  We had a great turn out with eleven shooters.  I’d like to welcome Perry Fridley and Longhorn Louie to our little group.

Everyone shot well, so congrats to all.  Special kudos to our winners; overall low score was Don Fenton, who also took the Open Class and Bryan Hood came in second overall and beat the Limited Class.  Scores are attached.

Next match will be on WED, 06 SEP.  Same time, same range.

WPGC Rimfire Steel: WPGC Rimfire Steel Match Announcement for WED, 02 AUG

Rimfire Steel Comments Off on WPGC Rimfire Steel: WPGC Rimfire Steel Match Announcement for WED, 02 AUG

Hello Shooters!

Ok, first things first.  I want to thank Slim for covering my last two matches.  Our next match is on WED, 02 AUG.  Weather Bug says it’s going to be in the 80s with humidity at less than 60%.  So, it should be a good day for shooting.

Now for some housekeeping.  The WPGC has recently established a Google Group for our communications platform.  So, the Rimfire Steel Match emails will be coming from that group.  On 13 JUL, I sent out invitations to join the group; not everyone on my email list responded.  For that reason, I am sending our two notices; one from the “old” group and the other through the Google Group.  If you only received the email from the “old” group, please let me know so I can ensure you are added to the Google Group.  Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during this transition.

Ok, here is the rest of the normal information:

Refer to http://www. westpointgunclub.com/shooting- programs/rimfire-steel/ for a description of these matches and equipment requirements. In addition, the Open class will be available.
