AVENAL GUN CLUB
Don Rogers Memorial Match 2011
Dear Friends and Fellow Black Powder Silhouette Shooters,
The 10th Annual Don Rogers Memorial BPCRS Match will be held on October 8-9, 2011. This event is hosted by the Avenal Gun Club in Central California. In October we expect Indian summer weather with pleasant days and cool nights.
Last year this event drew 44 shooters making it, once again, the largest two day BPCRS match in California.
Pre-registration will be required this year with a limit of 60 shooters. Registration forms and fees can be submitted in person at any of the monthly Avenal BPCRS matches or mailed. Registration forms with fees need to be received no later than October 1, 2011. Please call Jerry Hartwig at (559) 285-3407 to make any other arrangements.
The match will consist of two 40 shot programs, one each on Saturday and Sunday. Aggregate scoring will determine awards.
NRA Silhouette rules and classifications are used. Awards are presented to Match Winners and also First, Second, and Third in each class for scope and iron sights. BPCR 5 and 10 pins will be awarded. Target setters are provided. Entry fees are $20.00 per day for AGC members and $25.00 per day for non-members.
Door prizes will be distributed in a drawing following the match on Saturday instead of Sunday. Everyone who shoots the match will have the same chance at winning.
We always have some great prize items.
The range has non-potable water and rest rooms. Camping on site is available. Dry camping is free, electrical hookup is $5.00 per day (AC use is an additional $5.00 per day). Motels are about 9 miles east in Kettleman City on I-5 and in nearby Coalinga. The Sommerville Almond Tree RV Park is 15 miles north on I-5 and can be reached at (559) 935-0711.
The range will be open for practice, free of charge, on Thursday, October 6th and Friday, October 7th.
Friday evening we will shoot an indoor gallery match in town. We prefer vintage rifles and scopes but any 22 rim-fire rifle (no magnums please) with any type of sight is allowed.
On Saturday evening (October 8th) there will be a no-host potluck at the clubhouse. Bring a family favorite, covered dish and spend a relaxing meal with friends.
Please accept our invitation to attend. Avenal is an experience beyond the shooting. The food is great, and the company is second to none. Come early, enjoy the friendship, and have fun!
