Come shoot 600 yds Fort Richardson Saturday
Competitiors required to score other shooters pull targets in the pits
There will be a NRA High Power Rifle 80 round match will be held on _*Saturday*_, August 27 on Ft Richardson at the _*Pedneau range*_. Sign up time is 8:00 AM - 8:30 AM. The match fee will be $20.00 for annual ARC members or $25.00 for one day members. Open chamber indicators will be required and will be available for $1 each. Remember, 80 rounds for record, two sighters at each position and the possibility of having to shoot an extra string. Bring enough ammo. Everyone is required to sign up in the parking lot adjacent (South side) to Pedneau Range. I have attached an Hold Harmless form that the Army is requiring everyone to sign. Please print one for yourself and bring it. You only have to sign it once for the year and the club keeps them.
--> We have reached the part of summer where people have a lot of different thing going on so I would like to know how many people are planning to come to the match this weekend. The Black Powder Target Rifle people are invited too. If I receive less then 12 responses I will have to cancel the match. I need to know by 4pm Thursday so that I can tell Range Control whether or not we will be coming. I will send out an e-mail Thursday evening letting everyone know if there will be a match Saturday.
The Army has tightened the rules on bringing firearms onto the base. Because Pedneau 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.
The Army range control has taken a firm stand on range rules. There will be no personal vehicles other than the emergency designated vehicle on the Range. So, either you have to carry your equipment or put it in the emergency vehicle.
Hope to see you there!

The August 27 High Power Match is CANCELED.
When I sent out the e-mail announcement I asked for a reply from the people who were planning to come. Unfortunately, only three people replied to say they were coming. So I am canceling the match.
See you at the next match,
