On a nice, but surprisingly windy day over Memorial Day Weekend, the 29th of May 2021 the Michigan Fullbore Rifle Prone Championship was held. Sixteen hardy competitors fired in winds of 10-20 MPH with sudden gusts.
A glimpse of the wind this morning. Midland County is normally a relatively protected range. Not so much today. That flag was pretty consistent, but we suffered from varying gusts throughout the day.
Our State Champions this year are:
Larry Remsnyder, F-TR 440-15X, Marcel Bollinger, F-Open 444-21X, and for Target Rifle, Jamie Root 440-17X.
After today’s competition the competitors were treated to a Birthday Party luncheon in the block house at the range. Ray Gross was celebrating his 18th anniversary of his 39th birthday. Thank you, Nora Kay Folts, Ray’s significant other.
The next match at MCSC will be the second Suburban Mid-Range Prone League (a 3×600) on June 5, 2021. Program is: 2021 Suburban Mid-Range Prone League.
