1000 yard shoot 18 June
The match for this week-end is a GO-----however, we must provide a road guard on center road because Georgia range will be in use also. A rotating guard, like other rotating duties will work.
Ed Christensen is willing to let us use his place (in Delta Junction) as a camper parking area, so those of you who intend to bring your RVs and campers up will have a parking place without paying any fee.
Please call or send an email to Craig Parker if you are planning to go so that we have some idea as to what kind of attendance we should expect.
The Alaska Rifle Club will host a two day series of Long Range Matches at Ft. Greely, near Delta Junction, On Saturday and Sunday, June 18 - 19. Each day will be a 60 shot for record match. The match fee will be $20.00 for annual ARC members or $25.00 for one day members. You can shoot both days or only one day if you want, but the match fee and club fee for non-members, are the same, they cover both days. Open chamber indicators will be required and will be available for $1 each.
On Saturday, June 18, there will be 20 shots for record (with sighters) at 800, 900, and 1000 yards all slow fire prone. For the prone category you must shoot off a sling but you can use iron sights or a scope (Any Sights). F-TR use bipods.
On Sunday, June 19, the match will be 3 strings of unlimited sighting shots and 20 shots for record in 30 minutes prone slow fire at 1000 yards LR target, and you can use 1 rifle for all 3, or 2 or 3 rifles, using one for each stage if you want.
I have attached the Match Program. I have also attached an Ft. Greely Hold Harmless form that the Army is requiring everyone to sign. This form is different from the Ft. Richardson form. Please print one for yourself and bring it. You only have to sign it once for the year and the club keeps them.
The Army has tightened the rules on bringing firearms onto the base. Because Colorado Range is not on the main base, we do not have to worry about them. If you go through the main gate you must register all firearms.
