The Range at Harlan will be closed on Thursday, August 1st from 12:00 Noon until 5:00 P.M. The youth shooters from the X-Count organization will be using the range to see what it is like to shoot outdoors where wind, light, bugs and weather conditions effect their small-bore shooting.
X-Count is an Olympic Class training center for air-rifle competitors located near Speice on the north side of Ft. Wayne. For more information about them:

There were a lot of things going on last Staurday that
competed with folks coming to the Match.
I know that several of our fairly regular competitors had a match at
their home club, the State Cowboy Action Match was under way, the Three Rivers
Festival was an attraction, Doc had to go judge a horse show and Gary had
shoulder surgery. But – we still had an
even dozen folks show for the match.
We had just about as nice a day as you could ask in
mid-July. It was warm, but not punishing
(at least not until we were finished) and we had a wind from the west just
about all day. I want to thank everyone
for coming out. The match went very
smoothly with no issues or hiccups at either the firing line or in the pits..
We made awards on a different basis for this match, using
NRA classifications. Aggregate Class winners were:
High Master/Master: Mike
King 775 – 26X
Expert/Sharpshooter: Randy Jahn 749 – 14X
Bunting 665 – 4X
In the stage matches, results were:
Match 1 Offhand Jim Jackson 189 – 2X
Match 2 Sitting Jim Schieltz 199 – 12X
Match 3 Prone
Rapid Mike King 198 – 7X
Match 4 Prone Mike King 198 – 10X
Our next match will be August 17th – the THIRD
weekend – to miss conflict with the NRA High Power matches at Camp
Atterbury. This will be the Mike Gingher
M1A Memorial Match, shot from 300-yards in the M1A Match format. We will shoot in M1A and “Other rifle” classes,
so everyone is welcome with whatever rifle you choose to shoot.
