Winter Offhand – December 9, 2023

For most of the week it looked like would be shooting in a windy downpour today, but we ended up with a very good day for a match.  It was cloudy and a bit dark, but when we started it was 55-degrees and by quitting time it was 62!  The wind stayed out of the south and our south tree line sheltered the 100-yard range very nicely.  Not a bad day at all for December.

We had a good turnout – thirteen shooters; we ended up shooting two relays. 

Mike King topped the scoreboard for the day with a dominating 390-3X, followed by Mark Walters with a 379-6X,  Third and fourth places were close – with our guest from Toledo, John Pickens, and our Junior Mia King both shooting 374’s.  But John Creedmoored Mia with a 4X vs. her 3X.  Jeff Beierke closed out the top 5 with a 370-3X.

For the year to date, Mike King leads with a 765-15X, Mark Walters follows with 753-10X, then Marshall Rohrbach with 747-13X, Mia King with 743-9X and Gary Mabis with 706-3X.  We have three more matches to go and the season championship is still in play!

Our next match will on January 13, 2024.  After that match we are planning Brunch With the Juniors – a Junior fundraising project.  We will have a biscuit and gravy breakfast with coffee and pastries.  We will also have the first session of our Junior Rifle Raffle – a donated Winchester Model 94 in caliber .30-30.  It is a beautiful rifle refinished and blued by Mike Toscos. 

Come out and shoot with us – or just come out for Brunch
