Dog Days Bowling Pin Match Results

Gentle Shooters,

We had a nice mix of veteran and new shooters at the match this month. Overcast conditions made shooting much more tolerable than expected for August. Thanks to all of our veteran shooters who pitched in with timing and scoring duties to get all of the competitors in and us off the range in a timely manner. Our next match is Labor Day Weekend Saturday September 3rd. until then, celebrate or weep over the scores below.

Dog Days Bowling Pin Match

Gentle Shooters,

How about attending a fun match this Saturday Morning. If you have never been to a bowling pin match, you have the opportunity to fix that this very Saturday, August 6th at 9:30. The matches are action packed and a lot of fun. Basically, you shoot full size bowling pins off a table with handguns at 25 feet with the shortest amount of time winning. There are reduced targets for .22 and we even shoot pistol caliber carbines. More information on the matches can be found here. The match is at the Airfield Shooting Club range in Wakefield. For directions, see our about page. For specific questions about our match, please email our resident adjunct chief assistant pinhead at stevengordon@cox.net.

See you Saturday,

Steven

Freedom Bowling Pin Match Results

Warm and Gentle Shooters,

It definitely was the Fourth of July weekend at the range and shall we say the temperature didn’t disappoint. Regardless, out intrepid shooters fired 235 strings today with a large number of five gun competitors. I would be remiss if I didn’t offer a shout out to one of our original match directors, Cort Tompkins, who dropped by today to shoot the match. We have five Saturday’s in July, meaning you have an extra week to practice (or get enough gunpowder into your new .38 Special load to actually move your pin off the table) before our next match on August 6th. Until then, celebrate or weep over this month’s results posted below for your viewing pleasure.
