July 10, 2017 Update

The 2017 weekly outdoor Silhouette target shooting season started on Thursday, May 4th and continues until Thursday, September 28th. We get together every Thursday night at around 5:00, start the match at 5:15/5:30ish and we are usually done by 6:45.  We generally have 8 to 10 shooters each week. Everyone is encouraged to participate.  Bring your .22 rifle with Standard or High Velocity ammunition.  You don’t have to be a great shot.  Come out and join us. You will have fun!

Our first 80 round monthly NRA sanctioned match for 2017 was held on Saturday, May 20th. It was a cold, rainy, windy, ugly, miserable day.  Attendance was sparse.  Due to the weather, it was decided to only shoot a single 40 round match. Tim Jaedike was the match winner in Standard (Heavy) Class hitting 20 out of 40. Tim was also the match winner in Hunter (Light) Class hitting 26 out of 40.

Our second 80 round monthly NRA sanctioned match was held on Saturday, June 10th. Greg Engel was the big winner this weekend. Greg was the match winner in Standard (Heavy) Class hitting 65 out of 80. He was also the match winner in Hunter (Light) Class hitting 56 out of 80. Also, Tim Jaedike scored a “Grand Slam”, hitting 10 out of 10 chickens. Congratulations, Greg and Tim.

Future monthly Saturday matches are scheduled for July 15th, August 19th (State Championship Match), and September 16th.  Again, you are encouraged to come out and join in the fun.  Also, members, you can get in about six easy work hours if you come out and help for the day. Any questions, contact Steve Schmalz at 608-362-7172 for more details.

Have a safe 2017!

There were 14 regular shooters with a rifle and 6 with a pistol. Larry Abbott had the most improved average with a rifle, increasing his score by 2.75 points over the season. With a pistol, Dennis Loertscher was most improved with a 2.33 point increase.

Tim Jaedike had the highest individual score with a rifle, hitting 34 out of 40 animals. Tim also hit 10 animals in a row with his rifle twice this year and 5 animals in a row 10 times. Great shooting, Tim! With his rifle, Dennis Loertscher hit 5 animals in a row 8 times. Larry Abbott and Katlin Skoien each hit 5 animals in a row once with their rifles. With a pistol, Dennis Loertscher hit 5 animals in a row 8 times. Dick Morris hit 5 animals in a row with his pistol once.

Thank you and congratulations to everyone that participated this season. I would also like to thank Dennis Loertscher for being our statistician and keeping track of scores and averages again this year.
