There will be a High Power 80 round match will be held on _*Saturday*_, April 16 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.
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.
Volunteer needed: Neither of the two people who normally haul the trailer to the range will be able to make the match. I am looking for someone to volunteer to get the trailer from Birchwood Shooting Park, bring it to Ft Richardson and take it back to Birchwood. Call or e-mail me if you can help.
Hope to see you there!
