Shorter days means “back to school” and “back to the range”. Which leads us to the subject of the September meeting and newsletter.
As Labor Day falls on the first Monday of the month, we will have the first General Meeting of the year on September 8, 2014 at the indoor range. Starting time is, as usual, 8:00 pm.
The SPL and NFPL shooting league teams are forming, and the Western New York Smallbore Rifle League is also forming.

The August 2700 Tournament was modestly attended, but was well run and we received a number of compliments. Good weather prevailed and we were privileged to have the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association (NYSRPA) Bernard Dwyer Memorial Award for High NYS Sharpshooter at the National Championships presented to Clarence Shooting Club member Mike Schlabach during the match. The preliminary results and some photos of the event are below.
Thank you to each of the Ten X Members, volunteers and competitors who made this past Sunday’s tournament one of the best attended and best run matches in recent memory. Your humble scribe also congratulates all of the match winners and all of the new shooters who came out.
The preliminary results are to be found here. Beware, this is a PDF file.
Questions regarding the scores should be sent to the Match Director, Keith Gaylord (kwgaylord at gmail.com). The final results will be mailed to NRA on Monday 6/16.

It is the Club’s policy to put on hold General Meetings during the summer so this meeting may be the last until September.

2. Target frames to be put up for both the 25 and 50 yard lines.
3. The target post (socket) on position 10 is [...]
