SHOOT CHAIRMAN Paul Pruss . . .e-mail:

Due to Covid-19 pandemic restrictions, this match was a "shoot-n-scoot" affair in which competitors completed their matches, submitted their targets and went home. The usual comaradarie of a leasurely lunch, chat, scores and trophies had to be ommitted due to restrictions.

Stan Gurski reported that there were 17 shooters including one woman competitor, a great turnout. The weather was perfect. Who could ask for more?

Following registration, all shooters were assembled (social distancing applied) and givin the match rules, and social distancing regulations.

Contest rules required shooters fire 10 rounds in 2 minutes at a standard SR21-C target placed at the 100 yard line with exceptions for some of the Black Powder Matches.

This year there were twenty-two (22) rifle contests in the course of fire with a few new events.

A quick tour of the benches disclosed that competitors had brought a variety of U.S., British, and Russian, rifles. Photos indicate Krag, Springfield, US M1917 Enfield, at least one Flintlock Musket, a Trapdoor, and at least one Mosin-Nagant 91/30.

Once again, at least one match was entered and no target turned in. We had a trapdoor on the line, but no score turned in by its shooter.
