The sixth Winter Mid-Range Prone Match will be held on Saturday, April 29, 2017. The weather guessers forecast mid-40's and party cloudy. Should be a good day.
It will be a 2x600, and start squadding at around 9:15 AM. The match will be conducted on electronic targets. As such, you will not be required to spend time in the pits. Program is here: 2017 Winter Mid-Range Prone League Program.

We had a decent, sunny day for Match 3 of the Winter Mid-Range Prone League. Moreover, we had the best turn-out of the year with ten (10) shooters.
Jake Bondy was the high Target Rifle shooter (sling shooter), with a 398-23X. John Roethlisberger was the high F-TR shooter with a 397-26X besting John Pierce by three X's. It appears everyone is starting to get into practice for 2017.
They appear to be of a notable F-TR shooter wearing a shooting jacket, slung up, and firing an Any Rifle. When we left Midland the competitors were still in shock.... We are withholding his name to protect his reputation.
