|D-day June 6 1944 Lest we forget!|
It's Long Range time! Dig out your long range match rifle and head north a few miles to Gopher Rifle and Revolver Club for the Long Range High Power Regional Championship. This weekend, June 9th and 10th, both Sling Class and F-Class shooters, will be vieing for honors at GRRC. Each day, Sat and Sun, they will be firing 3 matches of 20 shots with unlimited sighters from the 1000yd line in the individual matches, and then split up into teams for the final 20 shot match of the day. Coaching is allowed in the Team matches and this is a great opportunity for newer shooters to learn from the top shooters that will be there.
Saturday's match for the Sling shooters, will be all "Iron sights", but on Sunday all matches will be fired with "Any sights" allowed. F-class shooters are allowed to use scopes and rests in all matches.

Note: Remember f-class is part of this match.
This coming Sunday, June 10, it is also time for the Mpls. Rifle Club to hold their monthly 300 Meter match.
From Brian Shiffman:
"Pre-registration is now open for the MRC 300 meter match to be held next Sunday, June 10. First relay starts at 10am and a second relay at noon.
Send email to me with your desired relay. I will confirm receipt of your email with your assignment as I receive them.
Standard rules for 300 meter shooting apply: match bullets, only. Entry fee is $15 which includes state tax."

It was encouraging to hear that Post 435 had more than 20 beginning shooters sign up for their Service Rifle Clinic last Saturday. Clinic director, Mark Havlik, was scrambling around on Fri., trying to line up a few more coaches to help out with this large number. I'm sure that Mark put on a good event for the new folks in our sport. These clinics are important, as we all know that most Highpower shooters start as Service Rifle shooters.

A worthy cause:
From Kurt Borlaug:
" Boys, As you may have heard (or not) GRRC is hosting an M1 For Vets Match on 14 July, 2012.....that's THIS JULY 14th. This is becoming HUGE and we are calling in favors from the Mn. State SR Team. Our club Fathers have been extolling this match and the attendance could be seriously LARGE. So I am asking any team members to show your support by attending this match as helpers. We are having two 30 shot matches as well as a Sniper Match. I cannot guarantee any of us will be able to participate in these matches but come prepared. If you know any other HP shooter who could lend a hand, let them know too.
As you know the M1 For Vets program helps returning soldiers who are disabled compete at CMP events, as well as fund their program. With that said we are expecting a big turnout of new shooters so that means pit help, line help and lots of extra scorecards!
GRRC will be furnishing food and a great time will be had by all.
Please reply and adjust your schedules accordingly......after all, the people this is for have much more adjusting to do than any of us will ever have to do!
Thanks, Kurt Borlaug"
From George Minerich, MRRA Pres.
Please find attached the result bulletin from the May 20 Prone Smallbore match. I’ll be sending it to the rest of the shooters tonight. I figured that you may need some filler for your next email blast.
Thanks for all the support!
