Wow what a day!!! Well we did it we shot our first Sanctioned USBR Match and
it went off without a hitch, with 7 strings, 18 shooters posting 27 scores. I
would like to thank all the Scorers, Ro's, MD, Judges, Book keeper, everyone
that made this possible, without such a dedicated group this would not be
possible. We had personal best and a new Club Record set today Anedra out shot
me in Sporter then shot her personal best in Custom with a score of 232-4X I
shot my personal best and new Custom Class Club Record with a 242-4X and I think
Gene set a personal best as well in Sporter. Congratulations to all on some fine

Charles Bailey and Jenna won the gift certificates to Bill"s. The Money cans were won by Charles, Charlie and Harry. Jay, Jenna, Mitch, Cecil and Bradley won all the door prizes. I think we had 8 shooters who shot Black Death targets and the speed shoot. Carl won the Black Death and I can't remember who won the Speed Shoot.

Well, I missed this match. I went trout fishing. Had a great time, the wind blew, but we managed to get our limits. Bud Lawry ran the match for me and as usual did a great job.
We did have a world record shot. Don Gartin broke the plinker .17 world record set by Sean Fry of 226/2x by shooting a 226/4x. Congratulations to Don. Sean just set his record on April 16th.

It was a rainy ole West Virginia day with five shooters braving almost cold temperatures for this time of year, but in attendance none the less for the first USBR Rimfire match of the year. Myself being the scorer, I perhaps felt colder then did the shooters. Mart Cunningham came within a point and a X of tying the unlimited record... by the way he was short on ammo and only fired ONE sighter shot on the UL target. He is a great shooter and a fine gentleman, look for him to grab this record at the W.V. State championships this July. At any rate the fellowship warmed my heart and a good time was had by all........LW Moore reporting

A nice day for shooting. Not too hot and not too windy. We had eight (8) shooters, with three (3) classes represented (no plinkers). As stated previously, there must be two (2) shooters in a class to qualify for prizes, so none were awarded for Custom (sorry, Al - I'll join you with my Anschutz next time). While no one was up to their previous high standards of last year, Mark lead the way in Unlimited, and Tom, after a sub-standard first string, was near his usual good work in the Sporter class. We had a good time and know where we need to do our work.
Look forward to seeing everyone at our next match on May 17.
Thanks for coming out.

Attached are the scores for the last two matches. These last couple of weeks have been really busy and I did not get time to send the scores from 4/9/09. We had a nice turn out on our Thursday shoot. The weather is getting better and the shooters are starting to come out from hibernation.
We had another World Record shot. Sean Fry shot a 226/1x in the .17 plinker class. The old record was also held by one of our shooters, Chuck Fox, his record was 224/2x. Sean was using a Savage model 93R17 (.17 HMR) with a Mueller Tactical Scope (8.5x25x44 AO mildot). Now I always make sure to check our plinker shooters to make sure the scopes are not set higher than 9 power. Sean bought the rifle from Bi-Mart for $169.00.
Well gentlemen I have been shooting my rifle in the last couple of matches. What a learning experience for a pistol shooter. I have had a Russian Voskof for several years and just now starting to shoot it. Not doing really well yet, but I will learn.
By the way it is great to see a clubs from Brazil, shooting with us now.
Kolin, the certificate will be in the mail tomorrow for your signature.
Have a great week and I will not be shooting next week as I am going fishing. Bud Lawry will be running the match for me. Have a great week and good shooting to you all.

Today's episode of "As the Powder Burns" was to be the special Easter edition with special guest author the Easter Bunny, unfortunately his vehicle was stopped at the border crossing and he was taken into custody by Homeland Security agents for the possession of unregistered gift baskets containing biological components. The FDA has also brought charges for illegal importation of chocolate dairy products and un-inspected poultry products. Animal Rights groups are also expected to file a civil suit claiming the use of marsh mellow chicks unduly influences children to think of chicken as a food product thus endangering the population of wild chickens by over harvesting by unscrupulous chicken hunters. The ACLU has already filed a claim that the use of the image of baby chickens to celebrate a religious holiday is a violation of the separation of church and state as the regulation of chickens falls under the pervious of the Agricultural Department. A spokesman for the Easter Bunny says his client denies any wrong doing and that this is a clear example of societies unfounded fear of furry animals. The four hundred and twenty members of the Easter Bunny's family could not be reached for comment. Neighbors of Mr. Bunny described him as a quiet rodent who kept pretty much to himself. No other details are available at this time.
Our competitors were not aware of the unfolding events of the day so the match went on as usual. At the end of the match when the news broke the group expressed their concern for Mr. Bunny and offered best wishes and praise for his work and the hope that this would not adversely affect the following days holiday festivities. The match was dedicated to the Easter Bunny and we all hope that he will be released from his undisclosed incarceration location soon.

Some day we are going to have a match day with good weather. When we do the scores will probly be terrible. The weather was cold and windy and we had some great scores shot. We had a good turn out, 17 shooters who shot 37 targets. There were also 6 Jrs this month.
If you were there you would know 189 was for. Harry shot a great score and I managed to give him a pretty hard time. We all had a good time despite freezing. Cecil,Jay and Mike will hopefully have to run the next match. If Mitchell advances to State again this year in UIL comp, Amanda and I are going to be there since it is his Senior Year. Till next time keep it in the 10.

Well we had rain, hail, and wind. Well as you can see by the scores. I brought out my rifle to start shooting it for awhile. Now I know why I am a handgun shooter. We had a guest shooter. Bob Landreth came down from Aberdeen to shoot with us. He said that he came down to get out of the rain (refer back to first sentence). We had ten shooters and the match went well. Bob Kadow
