Shooters News for the MN Area - Apr 22, 2014

Rifle matches Eau Claire - Apr 26-27

It's time for a road trip to Wisconsin.  Traditionally the first major Rifle Matches of the season have been held at the Eau Claire National Rifle Club.  This year is no exception.  Saturday Apr 26 ECNRC will kick off the season by hosting a Mid Range Prone shooting match that will be shot from their 600 yd line. Each of the four 20 shot matches to be fired will allow 2 sighter shots, so bring at least 88 rds (and a few extra).  The first two matches are to be fired with "Any Rifle, Any Sights)" (NRA rules), and the last two matches are "Any Rifle, Iron sights" for sling shooters.  F class shooters will fire all 4 matches under the Belly Benchrest rules.

Service Rifle shooters take note -- The first, all important, EIC "Leg Match", will take place at GRRC on Sunday May 4th. If you want to earn points toward the Life Time award of a Distinguished Rifleman's badge, you need to shoot in Leg matches.  Those that aspire to this lofty goal can practice their skills Saturday May 3 at GRRC in the Bob Hall Memorial OTC warm-up match.
