On May 25, 2019 the Michigan Fullbore Rifle Prone Championship was held. We had twenty competitors who chanced a poor weather report and came to shoot. Fortunately, we had nice weather, some overcast, gentle winds. However, it did rain. Shortly after the targets were put away we had some sprinkles.
Of the Twenty (20), we had nine (9) F-Open Competitors, four (4) F-TR, and surprisingly seven (7) Target Rifle (sling) competitors.
The Winner and State Champion for F-Open was Marcel Bollinger with a 445-18X. F-TR was won by Steve Goyette with a 437-14X. Target Rifle was won by Leo Cebula with a 447-21X.
