This weekend ahead favors prone shooters. Saturday and Sunday is the 1000 yd regional. GRRC is hosting a great opportunity to shoot Long Range. With only one 1000 rd rifle range in the state, and actually in states around, It isn't all that often that everyone gets a chance to shoot long range. This weekend we do. Saturdays match is 60 shots prone with Iron sights (3 ea 20 shot matches with sighters). Sunday is scope day (any sights) and I think 2 ea 20 shot matches plus sighters, then a 4 person team match. Most any center fire match rifle is good to go. Some of the teams will be "pick-up" teams, -- so anyone that wants to get on a team with coaching can do so. F-class allows and encourages shooters to shoot scope with rests or bipods and is a class that is becoming very popular. You can enter one day or two days. I wish my 6BR was ready.........

Small bore news: For the second week GRRC had a very good turn out for the Monday evening league. 17 shooters the first week, and maybe even 20 this past week. Four shot in the morning relay which starts 0930 and most shot the 3;30pm to 6:30 relays. larry and Jonell Sawyer shot the top two scores in this weeks 50m match. Gordy Kordowski came to the morning relay and shot his first match in 12 years. I assume that a few muscle aches will follow. I think that Gordy was shooting a nice M-52 Win.
300 m Match--- no news.

Boys, I am inquiring to all of you about Perry for Service Rifle Week, August 3-7th. In short are you going?Who are you riding with? Where are you staying?I have made a reservation for one room for two and a cottage for eight at the Erie Island Inn. Real close to Perry and there is a pool and a golf course (shorty). About $300 for the week of August 1st through 7th am checkout. We need at the very least eight shooters for the team matches on August 6 and 7. That's for two in the pits on 6th, no shooting but you get paid. If you know someone who is planning on going but not on this header (Phil Klanderud) please let me know by phone their intentions. (651)263-4576. June is filled with Leg Matches in Mn. First, third and fourth weeks are legs. Lots of re-scheduling led to this situation. Great warm-ups for Perry. Thanks, Let me know soon .
