June 13th Regional Course Match Results

On 13 June 2020, BWSA held an 800 point regional course match.  We had 43 competitors.  Nick Till took the win with a 770-23X.  This match was part of the Civilian Marksmanship Program “Home Range Appreciation Series”, and qualified all competitors for T-shirts and class awards from the CMP.  We were back at it on Sunday, 14 June with a 500 point CMP “Excellence in Competition” leg match.

June 2020 CMP Regional Course Match Results

39 competitors, 9 of whom were already distinguished and 30 still in search of points for their Distinguished Rifleman’s badges.  We had enough non-distinguished competitors to award points to 3.  The top leg went to Andrew Griggs.  He earned 8 points, and these were the final points he needed to earn his badge.  6 point legs went to Tom Collins and Paul Matney, who are both well on their way.  The overall match winner was Hanne Brantner with a 491-11X.

Our next event will be a mid range prone match on 27 June.  The match format will be a 3×600, meaning each competitor will fire 3 strings of 20 record shots from the 600 yard line.  Sling and F-class targets will be available and the event is open to anyone.  This match will be fired on Shotmarker electronic targets.  No pit duty will be required.  Come join us for a relaxed morning of prone shooting!

Shotgun reservations are no longer needed

Shotgun is open Sundays 10 am – 4 pm.  Reservations are no longer needed.  We  now allow walk-ins.  Clubhouse is open only for purchasing lines, using the restroom, washing hands, and purchasing from the vending machine.  You will need to sign up for a spot to shoot and determine then if it is for score.  Listen for your name when it’s your turn to shoot.  We will have tables and chairs outside for you to socialize.  Please remember to social distance from fellow shooters who do not reside with you.  We will keep you informed of any changes as new directives come out of Lansing.
