Shooters News for the MN area - Aug 16, 2011

The Week Ahead
Highpower Championship weekend again --- 
The NRA Regional Over the Course Championship and a Service Rifle Leg match will be held this weekend at the Elk River Sportman's Club this Saturday and Sunday. On Aug 20, Saturday, the match will be the Individual Championship -- a 80 shot OTC match.  This match will have an Offhand stage shot at 200yds, a sitting Rapid fire stage also at 200 yds, followed by a prone rapid fire stage from 300yds, and finally 20 shots prone slow fire from 600yds. The prone slow fire phase of the Team match will also be shot Sat.    On Sunday, the 21st, the team match will continue with the Rapid fire, and the Offhand stages at the start of the day, and then be followed by an Excellence in Competition Leg match for Service Rifles, which will probably start around 1100 hrs.   
  I know that the range is in excellent condition, and as usual, the targets are in good shape. This will be a great match.  See you there?

Small Bore
For the Dedicated prone shooter, on Sunday, Aug 21 there will be the monthly Sm Bore 1600 match at Mpls. Rifle Club. Shooters will be firing matches on NRA targets at 50yds to 100yds. This match should be good for everyone's ego as these NRA targets are notably easier to score on than those intimating UIT targets we shot on two weeks ago.  If you need some prone practice for Highpower, this is as good as it gets.  F-Class and Senior scope shooters always welcome.

Last Weekend
International Friendship match:
  From Stacey Tamulinas

"The Swiss Rifle Club of Minneapolis hosted the International Friendship match between the Gopher Club and the Zuckenriet Shooting Club.  As usual, this was a very casual match on the extremely hard international 300M target. The Club was also competing against Vancouver and Los Angeles Swiss Rifle Clubs in a separate postal match. 
    For next year, I must notify local shooters that they are eligible to compete and win some nice medals by achieving a 90% score with a "standard rifle"(European rules - heavy Trigger -no diopter, etc). If you don't make the medal the first time you get to try again. 
    Attached are a few photos for your viewing pleasure.  The after-match debriefing at the North Woods Bar lasted almost as long as the match.  We did manage to solve most of the problems in Switzerland and the USA.
