4-H South East 4-H District Shoot needs (5) ASC Volunteers for June 26th

We are looking for 5 ASC Members who want to volunteer to help RSO for the 4-H SE District Match on Saturday, June 26th, 2021.

They will assist on the 50 and 100 yard rifle ranges. If we have more than 5, then I can stagger the shift times and a few can assist with setup/teardown before or after the match.

They will earn time for ASC service hours and it would really help the SC 4-H Swampshooters out.

I know it is early, but I would like to know by mid May (5/14/2021).

Please email Fletcher Duntan if you are interested in volunteering (fletcherdunton [at] gmail.com).

April Bowling Pin Match Results

It turned out to be crisp but lovely day for a match at the range. I guess a few of you are still practicing or scrounging up ammunition. For the nine of us who did attend, we go to see a little of everything including some spectacular early season failures. In addition, today’s contestants witnessed a new club record for clearing five pins from a table. Art Schoner now holds the club record for a 2.38 second relay. Congratulations. For the rest of us, the good, the bad and the just plain embarrassing results are listed below. See you next month at the range.

Are They Doing That Bowling Pin Thing Again?

Yes Virginia, yes we are. We are pleased to announce that the 2021 Bowling Pin Match season kicks off this Saturday, April 3rd at 9:30. As always, the match is at the ASC range in bucolic Wakefield VA. The 2021 tables are built and the pins have been procured in the off season. If you have ever wanted to shoot on brand new tables, (we have seen you shoot so trust me) this is your only chance this year to do so. The rules have not changed for 2021, but it never hurts to refresh yourself. You can find them along with the the directions to the match at www.airfieldshootingclub.com. And of course, our resident assistant chief adjunct pinhead is always available at stevengordon@cox.net for those more perplexing questions like should is use a 9mm for carbine. (not if you want to beat Art)

See you Saturday

Steven
