The weather on Saturday, November 28, in the year of COVID will exceed Winter League Minimums. Therefore we will shoot.

The Annual Foul Weather Rifle Match will be held on November 28, 2020 at the Midland County Sportsman's Club (MCSC) stating at 10:00 AM. We will start squadding at approximately 9:15 AM. Please note this is one hour later than normal.
Get away from the family at Thanksgiving (assuming your family is courageous enough to gather this year). Come out to MCSC and enjoy cool, clean air, and shoot a rifle match.
On November 7th in the year of COVID, the Midland County Sportsman's Club ran their annual Halloween BSA Charity Match. Venturing Crew 7772 provided score keepers and assisted in target set up and tear down.
Eleven (11) competitors took part in the match, eight (8) were F-Class and three (3) were sling shooters across three categories.
The match was able to provide $840.00 to the Venturing Crew, which will provide operating funds for 2021. We especially would like to thank Bret Solomon from Solomon Diving, John Pierce from Pierce Engineering, Charles Hayes, and the couple of shooters who turned down their change from a $50 payment for entry fee.
On November 4, 2020, the Grand Rapids Club fired their first match of the 2020-2021 season. Five competitors attended and began the league for the new season. Then on November 7, 2020 the Howell Gun Club ran their first Snow Country match of the season. Six competitors attended. Great start for the new season.
This season will see the start of decimal scoring for the league. Instead of a total possible score of 600, it will be possible to shoot a 654. So we should see quite a number of scores over 600. However, we should see some real differentiation between scores, especially for F-Class.
