October 2018 Silhouette Update

The 2018 outdoor summer .22 rifle Smallbore Silhouette shooting season ended on Thursday, September 27th. Attendance was light this year. We had 6 to 8 shooters per evening. Everyone that came out to shoot did have a great time.

 

Our third 80 round monthly NRA sanctioned match for the 2018 season was held on Saturday, July 21st. Johanna Oksnevad was the match winner in Standard (Heavy) Class hitting 40 out of 80. Craig Stevens from Madison was the match winner in Hunter (Light) Class hitting 43 out of 80.

 

This year the Beloit Rifle Club hosted the NRA Wisconsin State Smallbore Silhouette Championships, which was held on Saturday August 18th. Beloit Rifle Club members did very well this year. Club member Tim Jaedike won two State Championships. He is the State Champion in Hunter (Light) Class, hitting 47 out of 80. He also won the State Championship in the Standard (Heavy) Class, hitting 55 out of 80. Club member Dennis Loertscher is the Senior State Champion, hitting 46 out of 80. Club member Johanna Oksnevad is the Woman’s State Champion, hitting 30 out of 80. Great shooting, everyone!

 

Our final 80 round monthly NRA Saturday match of the 2018 season was held on September 15th. Beloit Rifle Club member Tim Jaedike did extremely well in this match, too. Tim was the match winner in the Standard Rifle (Heavy) Class hitting 56 out of 80. Tim was also the match winner in the Hunter Rifle (Light) Class hitting 54 out of 80.

 

There is one more thing I need to note. Throughout this season, Tim shot some excellent scores with his Hunter (Light) Rifle. Three of these scores were high enough to move his NRA Hunter Rifle shooting classification from AAA to MASTER! Congratulations, Tim, on a very successful 2018 season.

 

Thank you to everybody that gave their time and energy to make our 2018 season a success. We need to thank everyone that came out to shoot with us. Thank you to the volunteers at the state Championship and the monthly NRA Saturday matches. Thank you to the grounds crew and the people that worked to keeping the sand berms free of grass and weeds. We have a first class, high quality Silhouette shooting range. Plan to come out next summer and enjoy it with us.

 

The 2019 indoor winter .22 rifle and pistol Silhouette shooting season will begin on Monday, January 7st, and it will end on April 29th. We shoot paper silhouette targets on the indoor range. Come out and join us any time between 5:00pm to 6:30pm or so. Bring more than one gun, if you want to. This is a great chance to practice your offhand rifle and pistol shooting skills. Remember, these evenings are informal and meant to be low pressure fun.  Finally, don’t forget our annual “Frosty Iron Match”, to be held on Saturday, January 19th, 2019. Check the Beloit Rifle Club web page for further details. Our 2018 event was a very nice warm pleasant day. Plan to come out for the day and join in the fun! 

 

 

Be safe and have a great 2018!
