    Default Fort Rich 600 yd shoot Saturday

    Match Program Full Distance 2012.pdf

    I am looking for 1 or 2 more people to haul the trailer to Ft Richardson and back to Birchwood. The two people who are doing it now are (mostly) only going to able to attend Sunday matches this year.

    The Alaska Rifle Club will hold a NRA High Power Rifle 80 round match on Saturday, May 5 on Ft Richardson at the Pedneau range. Sign up time is 8 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. Please read the attached Match Program for directions. 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. This year the Hold Harmless form is good for Ft Richardson and Ft Greely.

    Please let me know if you are coming. Because the number of High Power shooters has been so small we barely have enough to meet the Army requirements run the range. We need a minimum of 9 shooters.

    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!
