April 2017

Dear Shooters,

Only a couple of more weeks until the start of the 2017 season at the Ridgway Rifle Club! Our first match of the year will be Sunday April 23rd. This will be a standard 40 shot match. Carolyn and I will arrive Friday the 21st and will have the range open Saturday for practice.

We won't be shooting any "extracurricular" matches this month. I want to see the range and the improvements that have been done over the winter. Plus, I'm way behind the curve with my casting and loading.

Be sure to bring warm clothes and rain gear for whatever Mother Nature decides to throw at us. We'll provide coffee and donuts, and the club house has potable water. Bring your lunch.
Match-Day Info

I've been watching the weather for our match this weekend.
Depending on who's rolling the weather dice it may be "Partly Cloudy" with a chance of rain or heavy afternoon T-storms.
I won't cancel a match because of rain, but if T-storms roll through during the match, I'll have to.
We can't have the target setters out in a field filled with long steel rails during an electrical storm.
As usual, Carolyn and I will be there Friday afternoon to set up and the range will be open Saturday for practice/sight in.

On a side note, I'm also bringing a nice old Swede CG-63 to try out at the longer ranges.
You have to love a club that has 401 steel targets set up for ones shooting pleasure.

Craig

Hello Shooters,

The first BPCR match of 2017 is in the books. Congratulations to Brian Chilson, match winner with a score of 33. Dave Heeter took 2nd Open with a 32, and John Sweka was 3rd Open with a 25. (Note that Shaun Latham also scored a 25, with chickens as the tiebreaker.) In Scope, Brian Chilson was on top with a 33, followed by Greg Lauver with 23 and Lester Henry at 22. See below for complete results.

We had a total of 23 shooters and 25 rifles, which is a typical turnout for April, but unusual in that several of the "usual suspects" were unable to attend and instead we added 3 brand new shooters to our ranks along with some returning newcomers from last year. It's been fun helping people learn and watching them improve. On that note, congratulations to Brian Wakefield for up-classifying to A.

It was a gorgeous day. The previous day's practice had been cloudy and chilly, but we enjoyed a day of blue skies and warm sunshine. Winds were light and variable but mirage was definitely a challenge, especially at the ram line, which can be seen in the lack of 5- and 10-pins.

As always, thank you to everyone who helped with the match, from range work to administrative help to emptying the trash. A special thanks to those who coached the new shooters. We couldn't do it without you!

Hope to see you all at our next match on May 28!

Sincerely,

Craig Duncan

Our May match is a little over 2 weeks away! This month has sure flown by. I can't think of a better way to celebrate Memorial Day than by spending time with friends shooting BPCR Silhouette at Ridgway.

We should see some big changes at the range this month. There should be some new bunkers for the target setters. Work has been progressing down at the 200 yard range. There will be 10 banks of animals to better support CLA Silhouette. Makes me think I should load up some 375 Win cast bullet loads and let Carolyn try some chickens "up close." :-)

As usual we'll be arriving the Friday before, sometime after lunch, to get things ready. We always appreciate people who help us paint and set targets. Typically most of them are lying in the dirt when we arrive. Except for the chickens - I wonder why that is??

Last month we had gorgeous weather and got sunburned. This month, we'll probably want bug spray. We'll provide coffee and donuts, and the club house has potable water. Bring your lunch.
