Saturday turned out to be a great day to be on the range and we had a great turnout for our 2018 John Wallace Cup match in memory of founding member, club historian, and unofficial armorer, John Wallace. Competitors in the cup match must use an as-issued M1 Garand with surplus ammunition, and the course of fire is the same course we shoot each month. There are no practice relays allowed in this one, so your first relay must be with the Garand, and that will be your entry into the cup match. Shooters not competing for the cup are welcome to shoot in the Vintage, Modern, Unlimited or other categories as always.

We had near perfect weather and a full complement for our April match as we welcomed a number of new shooters and a few former members to the firing line. The competition was stiff but Tony Simonetti persevered over 18 other shooters to win the Garand match with a 280-1X. Dewey Hales took top honors in the modern military category with a score of 288-4X. In the Open Individual Category, Richard Martinez took top honors with his National Match M-1A and a score of 294-14X.

Apologies in advance for the pun, but we started off our 2018 match season with a bang on Saturday: beautiful weather, a great turnout, excellent marksmanship...what more could we ask for? Congratulations to Tony Simonetti for his win in the GSM category with a score of 278.04. Great job also to new president Chris Kurek, who won the Modern Military category with a 276.02. A big "thank you" to everyone who made it out--hope to see you again next month. And if you didn't make it on Saturday, we'll hold you a spot in April! See below for our complete match results.

We closed out our 2017 shooting season with another outstanding match. It started out bitter cold: 26 degrees at about 7:30am, but it warmed up nicely as the day went on. In addition to all the familiar faces filling the relays, we had four new shooters on Saturday: Richard Martinez, Tyler Spring, Joseph Grabbert and Bob Balcerski. And one of the new shooters, Richard Martinez, was the match winner in the Garand category. Congratulations! And congratulations also to Dewey Hales for his win in the Modern Military category.

Happy holidays and happy new year to everyone! I hope to see you all on the range again soon!

What a match we had on Saturday! Great turnout, great shooting, great weather--who could ask for anything more? Congratulations to GSM match winner Tony Simonetti, who shot a 277.03 with his 1903A3. You may have noticed that Chris Hymen also shot a 277.03, but he came in 2nd place. Everyone knows that X-count is usually the tiebreaker, but what do you do if that doesn't work? Look at the standing scores! And if those are the same, compare the prone rapid scores, and so on. Great score from both shooters!
