LARRY COON’S AUGUST NEWSLETTER

Rim fire shooters had little to complain about in August.  Not too hot and not too windy.  No perfect scores this month but Jerry Wick had a 249 in the 10.5 lb class.  The word this month was tie.  Jim Thompson and Mike Johnston tied in the Sporter class with 244.  Jim Thompson and J.J. Coe tied in the 10.5 class with 246.  Steve and Kim Frakes tied in the 10.5 lb class with 244 and Jerry Wick and  Steve Frakes tied in the unlimited class with a 244.  And, Kim Frakes and J.J. Coe tied in the unlimited class with 246.  Ties were broken by whomever had the most X’s. We thank Capt. John Hutchins for scoring the rim fire match.

The word for the day on August 10 was rain as the shooting started in a sprinkle and, by the time we got to 200 yards we had to take a rain delay.  It paid off for a couple shooters though, as scores were very respectable.

Bob Cotton fired a perfect 250 with 18 Xs at 100 yards and 247 at 200 yards for a score of 497 21 X’s.  John White fired 248 at 100 and 240 at 200 for a final 488 8 X’s.

The range looked good and the target crew, consisting of J Chaney and T Jones, did a remarkable job considering the rain.  It would be appropriate to mention, however that the golf cart did run out of gas which meant a long walk to 200 yards and back.

We haven’t mentioned it recently, but we would like to remind you to use the club’s web site.  Ken Hawkinson has been doing a great job of keeping scores, etc current and it’s all there for you to check out on your computer.  GALESBURGRIFLECLUB.COM Should get you on line with no problems.  Check it out if you get a chance.

September Match Dates:

Where has the summer gone.  It’s time to think about the Club’s annual picnic already.  It’s been set for Sunday, September 14 which means the center fire match will be the day before, Saturday, Sept 13.  Don’t forget, center fire shooters…Saturday in September.

The rim fire match will be the usual first Sunday, September 7.

John Hutchins

Thank you John Hutchins for scoring the rim fire match.

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.
