Our first match of the year is in the books.

We had 21 shooters in attendance.
Some up classed and some of us shot like poo.

Complete results are listed below

I shot one of my worst scores ever.
A personal best!
But I had a good time with friends.

I did hit everything I shot at in practice on Saturday with my trusty old 40-65 and my new to me 38-50
Go figure.

Gordon Clefton shot a 26 with Greg's old 40-70 Sharps and up-classed.
Perhaps you shouldn't have sold it my friend.

It was good to get back down to Ridgway and shoot BPCR Silhouette.
I love shooting there.
A man needs to stand on the firing line at Ridgway and look out.

1000 yards of steel targets.

I've decided to step down as Match Director and announced it during the shooters
I feel like the incoming youngsters have better idea's and can bring a fresh face to the sport.
Our sport needs new ideas.

22 BPCR has been talked about a lot at Ridgway
I'd love to see it happen, but I'm not going to run it.
Ridgway has the facilities and steel to do it.

Yours Truly

Hello Folks,

The May BPCR Silhouette Match is in the books.

We had a beautiful weekend.
No rain.
Little wind.
Consistent sunlight.
Mild temperatures.

We had the type of conditions that made you search for excuses if you had CHS.
Which, some of us did.

Brian Chilson out shot everyone.
Brian spent some time with other competitors fixing rifles and couching shooters
Brian has a penchant for passing on his knowledge and gives it freely.

There were a few outstanding successes.
John Sweka Sr shot very well with his CPA.

We had Sara Letham using a borrowed rifle shooting for her first time.
Her score was good, and her Dad was worried.

Evan Short was in 3rd place in iron sights.

A young man by the name of Joe Hemm was hot on his heels.

Folks spoke about the match, how fast it went and how comfortable it was to shoot at Ridgway.

We Credit Sam Marshall, our line caller, and the Ridgway target setters for that.

We ran three relays.

The match startled at 9AM and was done by 1:30

Our complete results are listed below.

Ridgway BPCR Silhouette
PA State Championship June 25rd and 24th


Sorry to be sending this newsletter out so late.

I wanted to wait until I had news on the camping situation at Ridgway.
Camping WILL be allowed at the range for our match in June for any and all who wish to stay on the High Power range.

There's also lodging at The Royal Inn and up in St. Marys.

Here's a list of restaurants in town.

The Summit has wings, more variety than you can imagine.
Fox's make excellent pizza
The Royal will serve you an incredible Prime Rib.

This month will be the PA State Championship
It's an NRA sanctioned match.

We'll be shooting 60 shots per day for score so folks will be able to earn a 15 chicken pin.
I have plenty of them.
Make sure you bring plenty of ammo.

I'll have the range open for practice Friday for those who wish to practice or need to get sight settings.

Both Saturday and Sunday the range will be open at 8:00 for 40 minutes of practice.
We'll have a mandatory shooters meeting at 8:45 and the match will start at 9:00 AM sharp.

When tipping our wonderful target setters make sure you tip for each day, not all on the first day.
Sometimes we don't have the same group of kids each day.

There will be printed awards for each day plus an aggregate award for the weekend.
We also have some nice donations from our sponsors.

Feel Free to email me with any questions you may have.

Match Director
