The Week Ahead for Shooters -- June 8

The Week Ahead for Shooters -- June 8th
Over the Course (OTC) shooters will be heading north to NorthWestern Gun Club this coming weekend to participate in the Triple Header of OTC matches happening there June 11, 12, and 13th. That's right--Three days of 80 shot OTC matches just 2 1/2 hrs north on the shore of Hunter Lake at one of MN's nicest rifle ranges. Getting on the road by 0530 in White bear Lake gets me there in plenty of time to sign in. Nice camping facilities are availiable and there are usually post match get together's to wet one's whistle and discuss the days shooting. I find that the Americ Inn in Cloquet is the best place for me to get a comfortable nights rest. One day or Three days- come up and shoot. Slide show of last years match -- click here  --
