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.

On Saturday, November 2, 2019, we held our annual Halloween BSA Charity Match on the Midland County Sportsman's Club. The day looked worse than it was. On the drive up there was spotty rain.  When we arrived at the club there was spotty rain.  However, it cleared off and other than being a bit cool (I define a "bit cool" as I didn't feel like I needed gloves) it was a decent day to shoot.

We had a disappointing eleven (11) shooters, so we were finished by noon.  F-Open was won by Bret Solomon with a 597-37X.  F-TR was won by John Pierce with a 593-30X, besting Doug Boyer by 2X.  Target rifle was won by Mike Quillinan with a 597-34X.
