GRRC 22 silhouette match September 5th & 6th

Due to a screw up the dates on the flyer are WRONG! The match is the 5th and 6th of September, NOT the 15th and 16th, that is the Friday and Saturday after Labor Day! Hope this doesn’t screw any thing up for you, but I just noticed it earlier today. Please let your buddies know. Sorry, but no match on Sunday as it is the clubs picnic and we will be letting club members shoot a little practice round to see if we can get them interested.

Any questions call me.



GRRC Long time member Robert Barth

This Sunday is the club members All Around Match. We will meet at the shotgun range at 9AM. We will start the match with a round of trap. Practice rounds are available for $5 a round. After trap we will move to the Black Powder range for the rifle and pistol parts of the match. There is 40 shots with rifle and 40 shots with pistol at a variety of bull and novelty targets. There is an iron sight class and any sight class which allows scopes. There are no caliber restrictions but either .22 or .17 rimfire has been the most popular in past years. So muzzleloaders to AR-15’s are eligible. These are all slow fire events so you can shoot at your own pace. If you don’t get your target finished during a relay you can leave it up and finish it next relay. As long as you get your 8 targets shot by the time the mosquitos come out you are good. Prizes will be awarded at the July membership meeting so you don’t have to hang around waiting for someone else to finish.  There will be targets available to practice on Saturday or during the match on Sunday.  This is a fun low key match designed for camaraderie between club members and a chance to meet other members. The match is only open to club members but feel free to bring kids, grandkids, wives, girlfriends or friends along. There will be targets for them to shoot. FUN in the operative word on Sunday so show up and join in.

The Match costs $15 and includes 1 round trap.
$5 Practice rounds of trap.
$.25 per practice target.
