    Default 20 shots for record at 300, 500, 600 yards NRA Mid-Range Prone match on Sunday

    Sunday, April 28 at the Ft. Richardson Pedneau Range Open to Public

    Beforewe have the match I need to know a couple of things.

    1. Who is planning to show up? I need as least 9 people to say: Yes, Iwill show up and shoot.

    2. Of the people showing up, who has an current OIC/RSO card?

    3. I need a volunteer to go to Birchwood and get the trailer either Friday orSaturday before the match and take it back afterword.

    I went out to Pedneau Range last week and there is one to two feet of snow onall of the firing berms. So bring a snow shovel. Please letme know by 2pm Thursday so that I can let everyone know if the match is a go orno go.


    The Alaska Rifle Club will hold a NRA Mid-Range Prone match on Sunday,April 28 at the Ft. Richardson Pedneau Range. Sign up time will be 8AM to8:30AM. This will be a 60 shot for record match with unlimited sighters. The match fee will be $20.00 for annual ARC members or $25.00 for one daymembers. Open chamber indicators will be required and will be available for $1each. I have attached the Match Program.

    There will be 20 shots for record at 300, 500, and 600 yards all slow fireprone plus sighters. For the mid-range prone category you must shoot off asling but you can use a scope or "Any Sights". F class &F-TR use bipods.

    The Black Powder Cartridge shooters are invited too. We set up the matchso that Black Powder Target Rifle shooters' score will count forclassification. All the disciplines have a mid-range format and this makes fora good multi-discipline match.

    Everyone is required to sign up in the parking lot adjacent toPedneau. I have attached the Hold Harmless form that the Army isrequiring everyone to sign. Please print one for yourself and bringit. 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 Pedneau is not on the main base, we do not have to worry aboutthem. 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 nopersonal 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!

    I am an experienced shooter but haven't done much mid/long range shooting. Nor am I currently familiar with all the rules for the match type you are describing.

    My question is; how tolerant of new guys is this type of event? I am definitely willing to learn.
