Last Match for 2010
Update for 2019: No match this year. Difficult year for the farmers with corn still unharvested and muddy conditions. Maybe next year.... Weather update 6:00 AM--temp is 23 degrees and we have about one inch of new snow. Not a game breaker, but it complicates things. Should be clearing, gusty and warming throughout the day. Drive carefully. This Match Is On for December 30, 2018--dress warmly. We will have a propane construction heater in the small room and hand warmer packets. Should be 36 degrees, very little snow. May not be a crowd, but you won't be alone. 2018 INFO: Match is Sunday Dec 30, 2018. The weather forcast is cold enough to preclude rain and mud in the (harvested) field. The match will not be sanctioned...otherwise much as past matches. Be sure to check this post just before you leave for the match. Most info is the same--driveway is off the gravel road (I Drive South), so you don't have to make it up the big hill, improved (some covered) firing points and impact berms.

We will shoot the standard CMP course of fire but just 5 shots in rapid--then double the rapid score for the total. M1 Carbines will shoot into the 100yd berm. Hope to see you there. Good Shooting.......

Match went off well. Actually was 22 degrees with a north wind. We filled the line three times for 29 matches fired. High points were a new club record of 283/300 courtesy of Master McSorley's 1903 and a fine 98/100 in a M1 rapid prone by a shooter firing a M1 for the first time. Scores will eventually show up on CMP Competition Tracker. Thanks for participating. That's it for 2010. Good Shooting.....

"First relay is at 10:00AM Show up anytime before dark"

I like that schedule.

The 2011 match went off well--scores are posted in competition tracker. High points were the weather--sunny dry and high 40s--good as it gets for Michigan in December, excellent turnout--we shot till dark. No new record, unless you count our resident Distinguished High Master and his McCoy M1--which we didn't count.--98-3 97-2 97-2 292-7x. McSorley could have bumped the club record up--started with 97, 97, but darkness overtook him and his usual OH didn't happen....88. He still won the match with his 1903. We fired a sniper match--four shooters shot with the regular relay at 200 through SP, then 10 shots at 300 (with no sighters there)--Won by Brian Quillen 193/4x with his 1903 A1 replica. Thanks to everyone who came and all those who helped make it possible. Good Shooting.......

Can I revive this for 2012? Ceresco, I had hoped to see you at another event, but my schedule won't allow. Is this on for 12/26?

Looks like I'll be making the trip down tomorrow Phil. Bringing the 1917 and my "new" to me '03. By chance is the Doberman available to entertain my daughter, as I can't find a sitter?

ceresco 12-25-2014 07:59 PM

Glad you are going to make it, Art. I was going to leave the Doberman home since I didn't have a sitter for her. Maybe I'll bring her.... Good Shooting......
