These matches will be open to ALL who wish to participate...
In addition to Hunter benchrest and SB Silhouettes the club has added a series of military matches for 2003. There will be a total of 18 events geared toward current and prospective members. 5 of these shoots will be centerfire Military matches.
The purpose of these competitions is to bring people together that share an interest in collecting and shooting these types of rifles. My hope is that all who will participate will enjoy the companionship of other shooters and have fun taking part in the matches.
Dates for these are set for:
Jan.11, Feb. 08, Mar. 15, Nov. 15, and Dec. 13. These are all Saturdays,
