Special thanks once again to the Shongum Sportsmen's Association who made this shoot posssibe.

This shoot was sponsored by Shongum (and NJACC Member) Stan Gurski.

The great lunch, of Hot Dogs & Kraut, Chili, HAGUS, and drinks, prepared by our Chef Chuck Collins worked out perfectly for the shoot. Due to poor weather forcased for the day, we had less than 10 shooters. Stan ran the line, and Tom Plante the scoring.

The weather was better than expected, but we had a small turnout. The day was threatening, and some people ran into rain on the way to the range and went home. However, the sky was only overcast, the sun acutally came out, and we had dry shooting conditions.

Bob Weis had delivered the frames on Saturday, so we were all set for a great competition

Shooting started around 9:30 with a decision that the weather would hold.

Just before lunch, Andy G. injured his right hand which resulted in a quick trip to the Hackettstown Hospital E.R. where he was treated and released. A Full Report is in our Members Only section .

Shortly after Andy left for the hospital, the match resumed. Several shooters gave up, went to lunch and then went home. Three shooters finshed the last rifle match before lunch. Scores were then completed and trophies in the Rifle Divison were handed out.

The emergency fouled up the lunch schedule, but there was plenty of food to go around. Newt brought in a HAGUS, as he promised. Not much of it was left, so many must have at least tried it. Chuck did a great job of filling in for Joe Lutz.

Steve S cleaned up on the handgun range, while several different people won in the rifle events. Steve won Allied Revolver (Colt 45), Allied Pistol (1911 Colt), Small Pistol (1903 Colt), and Stocked Pistol (Artillery Luger).

An error in scoring occurred, found in creating this report. In Match #2, Belleau Wood, Andy G. shot an 86 which is the winning score. The trophy was awarded to Rich H. who shot a 63. If Andy wants another trophy, Stan will order one for that match.

Andy also won Rifle with Bayonet. Due to his injury, Andy has been informed that his trophy will feature the "Purple Heart Medal".

Rich H. won the "Central Powers Rifle" Match using Stan's GEW98.
