Depending on Mother Nature, we are planning a New Year's Eve Rifle Match at the Midland County Sportsman's Club.

Be sure to watch this site to determine if the match will be held.  Weather in Michigan tends to be variable and could cause cancelation.

On a cool, but sunny day we had seven (7) shooters competed in the Annual Foul Weather Rifle Match on November 28, in the year of COVID. With seven shooters this was the second highest participation in the past several years. Probably because it was close to a nice day for November in Michigan.

A sunny November day in Michigan:

High F-Open was Donald Hicks with a 397-24, Jake Sauve was high F-TR with a 397-17, and the only sling shooter was Leo Cebula with a 392-13.

And for a little perspective, a picture of me (Leo) congratulating Jake Sauve (Brad's Son) for being high Junior in one of our state matches in around 2009-2010 time frame.

And a picture of Jake and I, yesterday in November 2020. I think he grew a little, and it looks like I lost a couple pounds.

As a rule this match is the last outdoor match of the year, with the possible exception of a New Year's Eve match. We will wait a few weeks to decide whether or not shooting on New Year's Eve would be possible. So, watch this site for an annoucement.

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.
