April Bowling Pin Match results

Gentle Shooters, I am a bit full of myself today. We even have a picture. We had a spectacular turnout for the inaugural Bowling Pin Match of 2024. We hosted 20 shooters, fired 296 relays, and finished before 2:30 in the afternoon. I have to shout out to Cory and Dan, who assisted with scoring and safety duties and were instrumental in keeping the match moving. It is clear to me that some of you were practicing and the scores reflect that. Congratulations to you guys.  The rest of us just showed up for fellowship, a good time and to heckle the good shooters. So, a very successful match. As you know, now that the season has started, we shoot matches because there is no time to practice. So I don’t want to see anything like the picture above that the range. PS. There will be no washouts for 2024. We intend to shoot steel pins in the short range berm on rain days! The next match is on Star Wars Day, May the Fourth be with you!

The Pins are Back

Gentle Shooters, Like the geese that invade my yard, April is when the bowling pins re infest the Airfield Shooting Club range in otherwise bucolic Wakefield, Virginia. And like the geese, the pins will be shot, only not with paint-balls. Yes Virginia, this Saturday, April 6th, the 18th season of Airfield pin shooting kicks off. Rules for the match have not changed and are still here. Set up will be at 9AM. We are looking for great weather and hey, all of your friends will be there. See you at the range. Steven  

March 2nd Work Party / Calling all Pinheads to build new tables

March 2nd, at 9am, will be a chance to get your service hours complete before the renewal period starts. We will be having a work party to build replacement frames for the ranges and to build the pin tables for the upcoming bowling pin season commencing in April. You Pinheads know who you are that shot up all the tables. Also, general range cleanup will be accomplished. We will need leaf blowers, power saws(table saw and/or miter saw), power drills and general hand tools for the projects. We will also need some extension cords to run from the building as power is currently limited at the SRB/50. A bonus would be a power washer to cleanup the concrete at the range and the bathrooms and also the doors on the building. There will be some other small jobs planned if time allows. If you have any questions or have specific skills or tools please reach out to me. Cory ASC Maintenance Officer

December Bowling Pin Match results

Gentle Shooters, We draw to the close of another year of Bowling Pin shooting. Thanks to all of our competitors who come out month after month, set up, tear down, and support and even heckle our shooting community. I have to say that I am not worthy of this group that I find myself a part of. It is pleasure to know and get to shoot with each and every one of you. I learn something every time I set foot on the range with all of you. I hope to see all of you around the range this winter and certainly on Saturday, April 6 at 9:30 in the morning at the stunning ASC range for the next installment of how the pins fall. You final scores are posted below, but stay tuned for the 2023 and all time recap coming to a club newsletter near you.
