Shooters News for the Minn Area -  Sept. 10, 2013 

 The Week Ahead
  Mpls. Rifle Club is once again the focus of the shooting community this weekend. Mark Rohmann and his Highpower crew has another great weekend of shooting lined up for Over The Course shooters starting off with a 100 shot OTC match on Saturday Sept 14.  The first two matches of the day will be the Standing match ( 20 shots offhand) and the Sitting Rapid Fire match (two strings of 10 shots, each fired in 60 sec).  These matches are fired from the MRC's shade covered 200 yd line. Shooters then move back to the 300 yd line for the Prone Rapid fire match, and then two 20 shot Prone Slow fire matches.  That's right, you get to double up on prone slow fire and we all need more practice at that. 
 Then after the match, the MRC guys will host another of their great Barbeque throwdowns for all the shooters.

The Minnesota State Offhand Championship will be fired Sunday, Sept 15th, at MRC. Competitors will fire 5 matches of 20 shots Standing to determine who will be the 2013 State Offhand Champion. With it's covered and somewhat sheltered 200 yd line, MRC is the perfect place to shoot Standing matches.  Click Here for match Bulletin

Last Weekend
9/11 Memorial mid range Championships at NWGC

From Eric Rhode
Hi Jim,
....Wick asked me to email you a pic of the 
results board from this weekend. Was another good weekend to shoot at 
Northwestern. Hot & steamy on Saturday and cold and windy on Sunday. The wind 
wasn't worth much as per usual at NWGC, and some good scores were put up.  As you 
can see from the board, Stacy showed us all why he's "the man" when it comes to 
prone shooting.

Thats right Stacey fired six of the 8 matches Clean including the last 5 matches in a row, and dropped only one pt in ea of the other two matches. Congratulations also to Steve Knutson, State Champion, just a couple pts back with another great performance and a 1594-93x score.

From Mark Havlik:    (Read this*!)
The link below is an article in the CMP newsletter about Tim Boyle and Mark 
Schoess. I'm surprised this hasn't made the local rounds yet. I would have sent 
it sooner but I've been a bit distracted.
  (Mark's wife has cancer and both are in our thoughts)
Mark  H. 
Thanks Mark H. for sending that in.  It is a great story. 
Mark Schoess is indeed a great hero to all of the Minnesota shooting community.
