Due to increasing interest we will continue to have the Sniper matches immediately following the high power matches every 4th Sunday with exception in April. April’s match will be the 5th Sunday which is April 30. Registration will be approximately 12 noon. Arrive at the high power range about 11 am and join us for a lunch break and BS session. We will fire up the grill for burgers, dogs or chicken wings, etc. Just throw in a few bucks toward the cost of the viddles since we buy this ourselves.
Leave your firearms in your vehicle until we go through our safety meeting and sign in. We will sign in at the high power range. Range fee is $5 for shooters that fired the high power match and $10 for everyone else. This pays for range fees and target costs. Bring at least 50 rds of ammo or more if you have it. We have a few mats and spotting scopes but if you have a piece of carpet, blanket or anything to lay on bring it. If your rifle is not equipped with a scope that will allow you to see bullet holes at 100 yards bring a spotting scope if you have one since we only have 3 or 4. We will spot for you if need be. Email me if you plan to participate so I can prepare enough targets.
Sniper matches will be at 100 yards, all prone or whatever position chosen using slings, bipods, rests, a log, dead horse, etc. or a combination. Please do not use a real dead horse. That was a fun example to make the point that any support that may be available for a sniper is OK. Scoped rifles will be needed since some of the targets are reduced to resemble a 1600 yard shot at a bad “object”. The targets will have + points for good hits and – score points for shooting the good “object”. Example below.
We have a new Range Officer Schedule program! Lately we have had a lot of hack attempts to the main website. That is pretty normal these days when using WordPress as the content system. Although we will continue to use WordPress for the main page, news and general content, we will soon be using a new sub-website to manage our membership.
In this new system, we hope to smooth things out and reduce the issues of the past. Consistency is a big problem. Names are being entered many different ways and the workload to fix them is too much. The reports are inconsistent making the credit system impossible to manage. The new system is much more consistent in names and reporting. Names and email addresses will be automatically entered using the stored profile.
Simplicity is another advantage. With the new system, it is only one click to pick a volunteer date/time. No more typing your name, email or phone number. Even better….No more duplicates!
The new system will be accessible via the membership database that was implemented a couple of months ago. You will no longer long in to the main website but rather this link
Using the email we have on file as your login, you will have access to your profile and if you are a Range Officer, you have access to the schedule. Take a Look as soon as you can. We plan to implement May 1st.
For a short time, the email reminder feature will be disabled. Be sure to check the schedule regularly
