Edited and hopefully no more errors:
Had only three (3) shooters come out for the second Winter Mid-Range Prone League match. Given the zero (0) shooters that came out for the first match, I think we need to rethink February matches.
There are no scheduled matches in March, the next scheduled date is April 1, 2023. Program is: 2023 Winter Mid-Range Prone League Program 2
The Midland Country Sportsman’s Club will be running the Winter Mid-Range Prone league again this winter.
The first match was to be on February 4, 2023. However, no one attended.
The next match will be on February 18, 2023. Due to a lack of personnel to run matches in March, the subsequent matches will be held in April:
April 1, April 15, and April 29. Hope to see you at the range.
Program is: 2023 Winter Mid-Range Prone League Program 2
Here are the January and February results to date:
Next matches are Grand Rapids – March 2, Monroe – March 11, Howell – March 11, March 25.
On a remarkably warm day for Michigan at the end of December, ten (10) competitors came out for the annual New Year’s Eve Rifle Match.
Beating a surprising number of service rifle shooters, Kyle Matzelle fired a 394-17X to lead the category. For F-Open, Mike Ruhlman was the only competitor; he fired a 393-12X. Charles Hayes was the only F-TR competitor and fired a 383-10X. There were two (2) Palma Rifle shooters, and one of them cross fired two times, allowing Leo Cebula to post the high Score of 383-9X.
We will announce the matches for 2023 shortly. However, it is likely that we will allocate every weekend in March and April as potential matches. Watch this spot for details.
We will be running the New Year’s Eve Rifle Match again this year. As in the past the course of fire is a 2×600 on electronic targets.
We will begin squadding at approximately 9:15 AM.
Remember watch this site for information about whether the match will be run or not. Whether this time of year in Michigan can be threatening. If it appears we will be having a bomb cyclone, tornadoes or fiery hail, we will cancel this match.
A couple of days late, but available nonetheless: Final Results of the 2022 Foul Weather Rifle Match.

As some of you noticed during the past week to ten days semno.org has been up, down, and sometimes simply non-responsive. This was due a hacker attack that caused semno.org and five other related sites to be infected with a Bot.
It required a good deal of effort to first remove the Bot, and secondly to repair the damage that it caused.
However, we are back up, and running. We now have new firewalls that hopefully will prevent another infection.
On a cool, maybe cold day (one shooter’s lady friend was wearing enough winter gear to go skiing), 15 shooters competed in the fifth of the Mid-Range Prone league matches for 2022.

Three (3) Any Rifle shooters were bested by Peter Church with a 596-28X. Lastly, Tom Feige lead the service rifle shooters with a 570-15X.
