The matches might not have been held if not for the work of World War I veteran Edward Dobscha of Willoughby, Ohio. Dobscha, a well known rifleman, had been a member of the 1941 Dewar Team and would again win a spot in 1946 as well.

In recognition of Dobscha’s efforts Frank Kahrs, who was the public relations manager for Remington Arms and a former staff writer for the Rifleman, asked James T. Berryman, then the Art Director for the American Rifleman Magazine to create a cartoon for presentation to Dobscha.

Prominent among the 65 or so match participants who signed the cartoon before it was presented to Dobscha were:

*Thurman Randle: President of the NRA and donor of the Randle Trophy
*John Unertl: famed rifle scope manufacturer
*Harold D. Allyn: well known Massachusetts rifleman
*Al Freeland: shooting equipment innovator
*Garret Wayne Moore: 1946 and 1947 National Prone Champion
*Bob Moore: cousin of G. Wayne and the 1958 National Prone Champion at Camp Perry and the first winner of the Lister Cup in 1952 as National Indoor 4-Position Champion.
*Sam Bond: the senior prone trophy at the national prone championship is named in honor of this shooting equipment innovator
*Rans Triggs: 1941 National Prone Champion
*Bill Schweitzer: noted rifleman and benefactor of the sport for whom the national civilian prone championship award is named.
*The Tekulsky brothers, Sam and Erwin: noted New York Riflemen
*The Lacy Brothers, Jack and Jim: Distinguished Connecticut Riflemen
*Francis O’Hare: the son of Paddy O’Hare shooting equipment supplier and shooter in his own right
*Eric Johnson: 1921 National Prone Champion and noted Connecticut barrel maker
*Russ Wiles, Jr.: RIG company president, rifleman, and the founder of the Black Hawk Rifle Club
*Jim Crossman: firearms writer, Distinguished Rifleman, National Match official
*John Wark: Pershing Team member
*Bill Woodring: Perishing Team member, world champion team member and the only person to win three consecutive US national prone titles
*Kay Woodring: first US female international rifle shooter, wife of Bill Woodring
*Marianne Driver: the Grande Dame of US Randle Teams
Vincent Tiefenbrunn: smallbore shooter Winchester-Western/Western executive
*Charles Hamby: noted Atlanta, Georgia rifleman
*“Tiny” Helwig: Winchester employee and noted rifleman
*A.L. Darkrow: mainstay of Akron, Ohio’s Zeppelin Rifle Club
*Earl Saunders: Kentucky rifleman and many times member of the Dewar Team

I’m amazed regarding the penmanship of the signatures…My signature looks like crap…and I hear that young folk aren’t even learning cursive writing anymore….

Enough of my ranting - that’s a really neat picture, made even neater by the well-known folk that signed it! Thanks for posting that!
