Default Any Garand shooters out there in Iowa?

The Iowa website is stagnant, does anyone read it at all?
I look at the Iowa site anytime online. you fellow Iowans need to use this resource.

It seems to me to be a great place to meet other Iowa shooters. And with some serious shooters, perhaps Iowa could field a team to Camp Perry.

I keep an eye on this portion of the website from time to time. I know a few people on the forum from Iowa but they are not very active posters.

There were some shooters from my area wanting to get together sometime back(Cedar Rapids). Never heard anything back.

We have 4 service rifle matches at Oak Hills Gun Club in Blue Grass Iowa this year. Dates are April 10th, June 12th, August 14th, and October 9th. First shot at 9, we ask everyone to be there and ready to go by 8:30. I realize its in the eastern part of the state but we do have a decent turnout and have some pretty good facilities.

We are having an informal garand shoot at Matsell's Bridge shooting range this Sunday (4/3/16) at 2:00pm on the 200 yard range if anyone wants to attend. The address is: 3745 Matsell Park Rd, Central City, IA 52214. There is a range fee of $10 for anyone who does not have a yearly pass and it is paper targets only.

Well crap. I forgot all about the shoot at Matsell.
Drove from Rockford down to Cedar Falls to meet a buddy at Black Hawk and got there and it was under water.
Was gonna shoot my new Garand I received just last week.
Could have made it to Matsell on time, but spaced it off.
Poopy, poopy, poopy.

Just got home and am cleaning guns on the deck. There ended up being three of us. 6 Garands, 2 carbines (one from the recent CMP release), and a 1903a1. Everyone shot from the bench at 100 and 200 yards. It was a little windy so we're blaming all our groupings on that. :-)

Good times. Thanks for putting that together Mr. Larrison.
