LARRY COON’S SEPTEMBER NEWSLETTER

 

 Rim Fire Report

The final match of the season saw twelve shooters gallantly sitting at their benches with the temperature and the tensions rising. It was going to be close.  Some scores were very close and the outcome would be decided today. John Chaney won both the Sporter and the 10.5 lb. class while

Steve Frakes had the high score in the unlimited class.

Our congratulations to these three and to all the competitors who participated in the rim fire program this season.

Center Fire Report

The Sept. center fire match was shot on Saturday because of the annual picnic which was held the next day.  Bob Cotton won the flat stock class with a 498 26 X score.  He had a perfect score at 100 yards but lost 2 points at 200.  John Hutchens also had a perfect score at 100 yards but he dropped 9 at 200 for a score of 491 20 X’s.  John Chaney came in third with a score of 474 7 X’s.

In the round stock class it was

Travis Phillips with 484 8 x’s, John White 465 2 x’s, Tom Jones, 462 2 x’s and Kent Murphy with 452 1 x.

This ends another season of rifle competition at the Brush Creek range  All that remains is the annual awards dinner which will be coming up later this fall, probably in October.  We’ll send you a notice via email when the date is set.  It will also be available on the Galesburg Rifle Club’s web site.  Check it out.  Our thanks to all those who participated, scored the targets, etc. for making the 2013 season successful. The range is in the best shape ever and we’re told that more trees are to be removed to enlarge the parking lot. 

Don’t forget to mark the first and second Sundays for next summer’s matches from April thru September.

FOR PLANNING PURPOSES:  Our mowing is done on Thursdays, approximately twice each month. If the weather is wet on Thursday this may get moved around. Bill Devena has done a very good job this past year and ONLY asks that the range be closed while he is mowing. With his equipment it usually only takes about a hour.

For a map and directions, see the Contact Page.
