Default NC Reduced XTC and MidRange State Champs Oct 31/Nov1

A little cut and past from the old forum! Matches are a week away now and we have several more sponsor goodies at the match now, including a Whte Oak Armament NM AR15 upper, a Rock River Arms NM A4 AR 15 upper, a Giraurd trimmer, Creedmoor Hardback Cordura Coat, RRA complete NM AR15 lower, RRA stripped lower, ParaOrdnance stripped lower, RRA NM 2 stage trigger, Turner leather sling, Berger bullets, Sierra bullets, Lapua bullets and brass, Hornady bullets and a lot more! Almost everyone, if not everyone, will go home with something!

We also have some custom plaques for overall and class winners. Food will be served both days.

Should be a lot of fun, just like last year.

Hope to see some of you there...though we are down to about 10 firing positions per day left open as our preregistered shooters have exceeded last years competitors already.


The old cut and paste post from the old forum.

I know this isnt vintage specific, but vintage rifles are more than welcome to attend and we have a class set up just for them. So here is the info! Hope to see some of yall join us!

Hey folks, its with great pleasure that I annouce our North Carolina Reduced Course (2/300 yard) XTC and 300 yard Mid Range prone State Championships that will be held again this year at Catawba Valley Rifle Club and cosponsored by the Lake Norman High Power Club on the last weekend of October. Oct 31/Nov1

The matches will be the weekend of Oct 31/Nov 1. Its a 2 day, 2 part state championship sanctioned by NCRPA and NRA (paperwork sent in but havent heard back yet but we should be fully registered just like last year). On Saturday, Oct 31, we will shoot an 800 agg XTC match. Its 200 and 300 yards, with pits. We are limited to 3 relays of 18 shooters, so a max of 54 shooters for either day. We start shooting Sat at 8am sharp. After the 800 agg, we will have a cookout thats included in the match fees. Any legal HP rifle is good to go. Optics ARE allowed but you wont be eligible for awards. Will have an overall winner, high match rifle, high service rifle, high vintage, and high class winners for any class with 5 or more preregistered competitors. We give out some nice plaques and the state champion gets the big trophy as well for the year and its passed down to the next winner and the last years winner's name gets added to it.

On Sunday, we are running another state championship, this one is a midrange prone only match. 3 strings of 20 shots with sighers at 300 yards on the MR 63 target. First string is iron sights only, the next two strings are ANY sights, so bring your optics if you want. Will have an overall winner, a high match rifle and a high service rifle. And any class with 5 or more preregistered competitors get another award available. We are having a pancake breakfast at 9am on Sunday, during that time we are awarding Saturdays awards, holding the door prize drawings, raffle and live auction. Shooting on Sunday starts at noon, sharp (we cant shoot on Sunday before noon, thus the morning activities).

Match fees are $65 for BOTH days if registered before Oct 1, its $75 after Oct 1. As this is a limited number of competitors match, preregistering is a must as thats they only way to guarantee a spot on the line and we do anticipate filling the line well before the match weekend. Match fees cover shooting, food on both days, door prize drawing, etc.

Prizes - Here is where our match is different. Our prize pool is amazing. We have door prizes including Rock River Stripped AR15 lowers, ParaOrdnance AR 15 stripped lowers, RRA 2 stage match triggers, Turner slings, ammo, Berger bullets, Sierra Bullets, Hornady Bullets, gun cases and more. Raffle items will include a complete National Match Rock River AR15 lower, Creedmoor Hardback shooting coat, and there will be a live auction for a full blown White Oak Armament NM upper with pinned sights. Raffle and live auction proceeds and all proceeds from the match go directly to fun the high power program at Cat Valley and to support the LNHPC junior program. This match funds our programs for the year and almost all, if not all, competitors will walk away from this match with something more than just a results bulletin! Last year, everyone walked away with something off the table.

Location - Cat Valley is in Conover, NC, which is just outside of Hickory. The range is 5 mins off exit 130 on I40. We have a Super 8 motel in Conover with rooms at $50 per night (or that is what some competitors are reporting to me now). If someone wants to "camp out", I think we can arrange something there too that would put you 40 mins from the range.

I cant promise you that you will shoot great or win, but I can promise you that you will have fun and you will find that we run a quick and efficient match, and we wont have any line nazis messing with you. This may be a "reduced course" match but the folks that show up to shoot it take it very seriously and competition each year is pretty fierce (we had one new national record set last year and had 2 shooters all but break the open record). The target frames are slick and easy to run. We also use a UTV pulling a trailer as a "shooter shuttle" to haul all competitors back and forth from the pits, so line changes are quick. We also try to give out nice awards to those that shoot well. Its a great way to end the year and all proceeds go to two great causes...our range and our kids. Please come out and join us!

If anyone wants additional information, questions or a PDF copy of our match program, just email me at mudcat@charter.net and I will forward you one. I can also give you George's address for sending in your preregistration forms and match fees.

Look forward to seeing some of yall joining us!

John Friguglietti

Default Match Results!!

These are cut and pasted from the National Match forum so there might be some hanging sentences and such.....

Saturday's 800 agg XTC results:

Thanks Kent. Kent is right, we had a heck of a fun time today notwithstanding the weather. Lots of good scores, especially considering the less than dry conditions (its always fun holding your hand over your front sight between shots during offhand to keep the lens from getting wet as some idiot...that would be me...forgot his super duper RightSight rain shade!) I think everyone had fun, Bob Wallace called a great match and George Northam has the pits running great. Both our club, LNHPC and CVRPC put on a great show. We lost almost a quarter of our preregistered shooters due to weather but they are the ones that missed out.

FYI, Kowa 27X LER eyepieces can get filled with water if it rains enough on them...mine did. Just finished hitting it with a hair dryer to dry it out for tomorrow's prone match. Guess its been treated too roughly over the last 6 years or so of use.

Tomorrow is the 300 yard prone championship, which is separate from the XTC we shot today. Below are the prelim scores I just received from Bob via email. Sorry for the format mess (cut and pasted from excel) and Asa or other admins, if you can move this thread to match results now, that would be appreciated.

Congrats to
John Friguglietti - Overall State Champion
Steven Lunsford - MR champion plaque
John Teachey - SR champion plaque
Charlie Kish - Senior champion plaque
William McCraw - Junior champion plaque
Liz Herrman - Expert champion plaque
David Ficklin - Sharpshooter Champion plaque

Sunday's results from the Bruce Teachey MidRange Prone Match (3x300):

Just sat down at the office and had results come in overnight from Bob (why he was up at 4:50am, I dont know!) but here is the rundown from the Bruce Teachey Midrange Prone 300 Yard Match shot yesterday (our State Championship).

And another pic, one of my favorite, me getting to award my good friend Doc (Greg Scott) his Sharpshooter Champion plaque. Not sure what that look signifies, but its interesting!


And, I dont have results to post yet, but Steven then turned around and won the midrange prone match today with a 600-45x, edging out Kent Reeve at 600-44x. Steven had us all watching in the spotting scopes to the last shot as he needed a 200-13x to win and he only snagged 4 Xs in the first 10 shots, then shot a 10 for shot 11, then proceeded to shoot X clean the rest of the way out, including blowing out the golf tee (we use golf tees as spotters to avoid shattering plastic spindles) on the final shot for his last X, to win the match. Exciting!

I also think we had another National Record set today (had one last year set during our match) as Doug Armstrong (you may know him as the guy that recently legged out using only an M1) shot a 200-19X. He used a Palma rifle with irons, but shot during an Any/Any match, so I am not sure which record he tied or broke, as the case may be.

Dr Gregory Scott won the Sharpshooter class shooting a score that beat all experts and all but one master. Scott Fletcher won the service rifle class with a 593 with some lousy light conditions.

Will do a better write up with scores as soon as I get them from Bob but those are the ones my very tired self can remember at this moment. Needless to say, my tiredness is not regretted...on the contrary, this weekends matches were some of the most fun shooting and match hanging out that I have ever done, notwithstanding the rain, mud and today, the cold.

More to follow later.....me tired.....
