Note for you "hearty" folk, there is a Winter Mid-Range Prone match at Midland on February 1. Program is here: 2020 Winter Mid-Range Prone League Program
The Midland County Sportsman's Club will be running their annual Winter Mid-Range Prone League again this year. The matches are unlimited sighters, and twenty (20) shots for record at 600 yards on electronic targets (Shot Markers).
As in years past, weather will dictate whether or not the match will be run on any particular date. However, no longer will temperature be the primary reason that matches will be canceled. Due to the large tent we are able to fire on points three (3) to seven (7) from a heated tent. However, we will cancel in the case of rain to preserve the targets and electronics. Additionally, hazardous driving conditions may cause cancelations, too.
The dates chose are: February 1, and 29; March 14 and 28; April 4, 11, and 25.
On December 31, 2019, seven (7) stalwart competitors attended Midland's Annual New Year's Eve Rifle Match. We enjoyed snow and cold temperatures, but were protected by Midland's tent. Of our entries we had three (3) F-Open shooters, two (2) F-TR shooters, and two (2) Target Rifle (sling) shooters.
The winning F-Open shooter was Tony Dekelaita with a 391-9X. Unfortunately, due to a clerical error the bottle of Champagne was given to the second place shooter, Don Hicks, who had a 389-12X. Tony we apologize. We'll fix it in March when we start the winter league.
The winning F-TR shooter was Charles Nelson with a 366-6X, and the winning Target Rifle shooter was Ray Gross with a 397-19X.
Some local color:
Eight shooters at Howell today. More scores:
January dates: 2 at Grand Rapids, 11 at Howell, 18 at Monroe, 25 at Muskegon.
Program is 2019-2020 Snow Country English Match Series.
Don't forget the Midland "New Year's Eve Rifle Match" on December 31, 2019 (last chance to shoot in 2019!). Program is 2019 New Year's Eve Rifle Match.
Once again we will test Mother Nature, and plan a New Year's Eve Rifle Match.
This will be a 2x600, and be fired from our heated tents on the 600 yard line. We will not cancel due to temperature (we ran at -5 F one year). However, extreme driving conditions could cause a cancelation.
