Default Garand Clinic at Fort Knox, KY

Good afternoon. The Meade County Sportsman's Club has a Garand Clinic scheduled for Saturday April 17, 2010 at Fort Knox. This event has sold out for several years and this year should be no different.

Lots of information is below. If there is anything else that I can do please contact me. Wayne McLeod aguy@dennymac.com

Date: April 17, 2010 Location: Scott Mountain Range, Fort Knox, Kentucky.

Eligibility: Anyone 12 years of age or older may participate in the clinic.

Entry Fee: Adults = $40.00 Juniors = $20.00

Make checks payable to the Meade County Sportsmen’s Club (MCSC).

Clinic proceeds support junior high power shooting programs.

Entries: The range capacity is 50 shooters. A roster of all competitors must be submitted to Fort Knox security personnel 10 days before the clinic. Therefore, all shooters must have advanced entries; walk-on registration on the day of the clinic is not possible. Advanced entries must include name, complete address, telephone number, vehicle license plate number, and payment of entry fee for each individual. All advanced entries must reach the clinic coordinator at least 10 days before the match date. Advanced entries will be refunded if notice of an entrant’s cancellation is given no later than 10 days before the match. A self-addressed, stamped envelope must also be sent if the entry is to be acknowledged. The clinic is held on a military installation and subject to cancellation by the Army with little notice; without a telephone number, you may not be advised of any schedule changes.

Mail entries to: Bill Balda, 147-A Doe Run, Frankfort, KY 40601; 800-852-0942, ext 4536.

Rifles and Ammunition: M1 Garand rifles will be provided at the range and caliber .30 M2 Ball ammunition will be issued on the firing line.
If you want to supply and use your own AR15 and ammunition you may do so.

Rules: This is a CMP Approved Garand Clinic and current CMP competition rules will apply. Unless modified by this program, current NRA rules will govern the firing procedures. Open bolt indicators are required (Rule 3.21). All competitors will wear eye and ear protection (Rules 3.19 & 3.20) in the pits. All competitors will wear hearing protection on the firing line while eye protection is highly encouraged while on the firing line. Competitors will score, work in the target pits, and assist the Range and Pit Officers as required. The use of plug type scoring gauges is restricted to the Pit Officer only. No challenges, alibis, or refires will be allowed because of rifle or ammunition malfunctions or inability to reload the rifle in any stage of the match.

Default Garand/High Power Clinic

We will not have a registered JCG match on Sunday following the clinic. There is a 1,000 yard match scheduled for Sunday.
Camp Atterbury is having several Garand/M1A matches this year. They are also a great bunch of folks. Look them up. DennyMac
