Freedom Bowling Pin Match

Gentle Shooters,

We are having a Bowling Pin Match Saturday July 2nd at 9:30 AM at the pastoral Airfield Shooting Club range in stunning Wakefield Virginia because America. I can’t think of a better way to fire up the Fourth of July weekend that with your favorite guns and your favorite friends. I know that I will be debuting a new optical sight and reload for my 38 revolver. Anyone who has attended a match where I am trying something new can attest to the entertainment value in my overwhelming frustration in the next installment of “what else can go wrong.” That alone is worth the cost of admission. Rules for the match and directions to the range are available on our web site at www.airfieldshootingclub.org. Specific questions and concerns along with the more general insults may be hurled at stevengordon@cox.net. See you at the range

June Results- 22LR Bench Rest Competition

A huge thank you for those who came out to the range on Sunday and participated in the first Rimfire Bench Rest event.  The turnout was fantastic, we had great weather and loads of fun.  I learned a lot being my first time as a match director but just thinking about it, I would say it turned out better than expected!
Stay tuned and keep an eye the calendar!  I’m sure we will more 22LR events to come!  See you at the range!!!

Work Party

Work Party

It’s time to clean up and do a little range maintenance.  Given time, and enough members show up, I’d like to tackle the following items Sunday starting at 10:00

  • Pressure washing the outside of the restroom building.
  • Cleaning both the 50-yard and 100-meter ranges.
  • Sealing both ranges’ roofs.
  • Repainting the red safety lines
  • Sealing the wall between the ranges (if enough members show)
  • General range and grounds clean up to include the trash immediately outside the gate.

Priority will be given to the work on the ranges as to allow the Swamp Shooters access at 1:30.

We will need:

  • Ladders (both step and extension)
  • Gas powered pressure washers
  • Garden hose
  • Telescoping painting poles for sealing the roofs. (We have the brushes and adaptors)
  • Gas/battery powered leaf blowers
  • Telescopic pressure washer wands for use on the roofs.
  • Tools to facilitate safely removing the trash by the gate (rakes and hoes).  There may be reptilian inhabitants.

The forecast is for temps in the 90’s and thunderstorms in the afternoon.  Bring plenty to drink and if the rain forecast holds true, we’ll have to delay the roof work. 

So come out and clean up and improve your ranges.  Remember both ranges will be closed from 10:00 when the Swamp Shooters take over at 1:30. 

Thanks, and I hope to see you on the range,

Thursday Help Needed

I’m looking for people interested in spending a little time on the range this Thursday. A dumpster for Sunday’s work party will be delivered inside the range area sometime Thursday. All that will need to be done will be to direct the driver to leave it in the correct location. I’ll give 2 hours of service for each half day (for less than 10 minutes light labor). Ideally, I’d like a volunteer to be at the range in the morning and one in the afternoon. I’d like the morning person there NLT 830 and the afternoon person leave no earlier than 3 (or until the dumpster is delivered). I will get a call 30 minutes prior, but I live more than an hour away. If you live close by the club, and can be on standby (for half or whole day), that would be great as well.

I will coordinate the desired location, phone numbers and names after I get the volunteers.

If you’re able to help out, please contact me at XO@airfieldshootingclub.org.

Thanks,

Art Schoner
