Everyone is urged to join us. Let’s have some good participation again this year.

Our annual “Frosty Iron Challenge”, was held on Saturday, January 18th, 2020.  The information flyer for this match says, ” Only a blizzard will cancel this event.” We came so very close to doing just that.  The weather was terrible.  The temperature was 25 degrees, with 20 to 25 mile per hour winds, overcast, and 6″ of snow the night before. Only two shooters came out to participate. Dennis Loertscher was the match winner in Standard Rifle (Heavy) Class, hitting 20 out of 40.  Mike Koehler was the match winner in Hunter (Light) Class hitting 11 out of 40.
