I hope everyone had a great Labor Day Weekend! Some doubted that we could successfully pull off a major work party concurrently with a Bowling Pin Match (Steven!!). I thought, despite my poor shooting, that both were tremendous successes and wanted to thank all who participated in Saturday’s activities. The work party crew did a great job building beautiful new frames for every possible position on the ranges. Let’s do our best to keep these frames intact! If you find someone, carelessly or otherwise, shooting the frames, please point it out to them. If the problem persists, please contact the Provost. Speaking of the Provost, I’d like to extend a special Thank You to Mark for running a well-organized work party, allowing us to run the Pin Match as usual.
I’m tentatively planning a range clean-up work party for some time next month. I’m planning on weed/brush trimming and general clean up.
Verizon Fios has resurrected my internet service and so now you may have your match results. Congratulations to Dale Mullin on taking his first five gun aggregate win. I’d like to point out that we actually had a tie for second place in Major this month. I don’t remember a tie ever before. We certainly didn’t know about the tie at the end of the match, so there can’t be an Olympic moment where folks joyously share the silver medal. Besides, we are Americans and there have to winners! Well it is my circus so it’s my monkey and by decree, the winner is Brian Howell. His fastest string was almost a half second faster than the loser. Here are all of the results for the match
And so another summer draws to its unofficial close this weekend. To celebrate, your friends at the Airfield Shooting Club will be hosting our monthly pin match. We are expecting dry weather and not too hot. All of your friends will be there and for one of us, this is a bit of a bachelor party. So come wish our mystery shooter well before the big day. Arrive by 9:30 in the morning at the ASC range in wonderful Wakefield. Directions and match rules are posted on our web site at www.airfieldshootingclub.org. Our chief assistant adjunct pinhead is always available at email@example.com for specific questions.
Need service hours? Tired of hassling with old dilapidated frames? Come out and support your club and earn some service hours next Saturday September 4th at 10:00. We will be rebuilding all of the frames and replacing some of the pipes in the ground. So, bring your basic carpentry tools, including (but not limited to) circular saws and miter saws, and drills/drivers. Send me a note at XO@airfieldshootingclub.org if you happen to have a power post hole digger, or auger, that you’re willing to bring. Please be aware, in order to get this done as soon as possible and minimize range down time, this work party will run concurrently with the September bowling pin match, so bring your eye and ears!
I hope to see you next Saturday, for one or both activities!
This Saturday, August 7th please join your friends for another fun filled installment of how the pins fall (or don’t!) We will hold our monthly pin match beginning at 9:30 at the bucolic Airfield Shooing Club Range in beautiful Wakefield VA. Come see if anyone can dethrone Art and his magic carbine. If you need to brush up on the rules or need directions, they are available at airfieldshootingclub.org. For specific questions, complaints or brickbats, please gently reach out to our associate, adjunct, chief assistant pinhead at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sometimes a pinhead, like a pin itself, is knocked down but not completely out. In this case, they are still able to deliver results. Art would be crestfallen if I didn’t mention he set another record with his carbine. You know this isn’t going to happen every single month, right? For the rest of us, there is always August. The scores are below and we will reconvene next month.
Just a reminder that we will have a Bowling Pin Match on Saturday, July 3rd at 9:30 at Airfield Shooting Club range. The forecast calls for showers, so check you’re email and/or the website in case of bad weather. Rules for the match, as well as directions to the range are available at airfieldshootingclub.org. Individual questions may be directed to your assistant pinhead at Art.Schoner@airfieldshootingclub.org.
Thanks to all of our gentle shooters who came out to shoot the match. It was quite warm and humid, but our contestants posted some nice times as captioned below. Our next match will be Saturday, July 3rd.
