I do miss living on Bailey.
Often helped on Estabrook Ranch as well as Sutherland Ranch
Loved shooting at Buffalo Creek Range
Wish camping at BCR was still a option still.
We still camp for the 4th of July Highpower and Service Rifle Championship matches. They do an EIC pistol leg that week now too..
It is one of the prettiest ranges in the country. We are lucky to have it.. :-)
Bump up for a great match.
Weather is solid and sign-ups are high, this should be a great day..
We had a record turn-out of 18 shooters for this match which is really great. The weather was awesome and the wind was "kind" to most. :-) I have uploaded all the scores and they can be found at this link below.
Thank you to everyone for setup, tear down, running the match and the clinic. Without all the extra hands we could not pull these off.
We have two more matches this year at Colorado Rifle Club. You can find the details and the registration here. I hope you all can make it out again
Remember in today's day and age we need as many people on the line as we can get. Try to spread the word and get more people out shooting..
"load and be ready!!"
