Default Ft. Hill R&P Club 9/ 26+27 EIC Match report

Hi all
My Son and I drove from near Cleveland, Ohio to the Ft. Hill Rifle & Pistol Club(FHRPC) in Oldtown, Maryland, to participate in 2 EIC rifle matches on September 26th and 27th, 2015:the Saturday match was a 80 shot match, and Sunday was a 50 shot match.

First of all, both matches where safe and professionally run "across the course" matches.

The group of 39 non-Distinguished shooters on Sunday was the largest ever at FHRPC, and 4 Leg Medals were given out! There was a nice awards ceremony after each match.

About the awards...Maryland has VERY restrictive gun laws compaired to Ohio. Along with a laminated certificate to winners in each catagory, FHRPC gave them a stripped AR-15 LOWER RECIEVER with there own cool logo engraved on it!
That's a lot better than a plaque, and shows a lot of "backbone" by the leadership of FHRPC, in my opinion!
Maybe other clubs will follow there lead?

One young man went Distinguished because of this match. Congradulations to him! As his photo was taken and award was given, he was hit from behind with a 5 gallon cooler of water! THAT should be a good photo.

This has got to be the most efficiantly laid out range I have ever seen. Especially considering it is between 2 hills!

Ft. Hill Rifle & Pistol Club: A very memorable time for both of us. We will be back.

Here is a link to there website: http://www.fhrpc.org/

I'm glad you hear you all had a good time. I'm a member, and try to help out the professionals that run the matches as much as I can. As I'm still chasing the badge , I can't really get too involved. I'm also the lucky chap that won a lower with the "poker hand" raffle.

We have had 2 people leg out on our range this year alone, and probably less than 10 in the 20 + years we've had the range.

I can speak with great confidence that the match director's are very interested in hearing feedback from the events. I will pass this along to them. Lucky for us, one of are hard holders has his FFL and was able to do all the paperwork to make sure all of our awards were legally transferred ( at no cost).

Hope you see you next year!

Roy

Don't get discouraged by the cut scores at Fort hill. They have been running way above average. I shot a 471 at perry, and that was good enough for a hard leg. My 471 last week is not even leather. Aloreman got that.

We do lots of 3x600 matches, and nra 800 matches, that's good practice but much lower pressure.
