100 Yard Outdoor Range & 50' Pistol Range

10:00am - 3:00pm


The Shoot

The weather started out cool and overcast, but quickly warmed up and dried out to give us a perfect day for or match. The shade presented by the covered fireing line made the sun tolerable. More than 20 shooters participated in the event. We had use of the 100 yard outdoor range until 3:00. So we broke for lunch at 12:30. Once again, Joe Lutz did a great job preparing our traditional Memorial Day Lunch of Hotdogs w/chili or kraut, baked beans, and of course SPAM.

Joe had actually forgot about the Spam he had in the oven. He ran out of hotdogs before he realized he had a couple of tray of spam cooking. In the end, we had plenty of food.

Following lunch, we conducted our Memorial Day Ceremony with Taps and 3-Round Volley Salute before returning to the firing line.

The Shooting Line was managed by Stan Gurski and the Score Keeper was Tom Plante.

The new targets were used again this year. The 5-ring targets were scored 1-5 & X. X's were used to break ties. The standard target was also used for the Sniper Rounds.
