December Rimfire Ram Bash Results

Small FXRGC sealJanuary 2, 2018 - The Rimfire Ram Bash was held on Saturday, December 30.  The weather drove attendance down.  It was quite cold, starting out at about 25 degrees and got into the thirty's by the end of the match.  There was a coating of snow over night forcing us to use orange paint to see the rams at 100 meters.  We had a light turn out with only 10 shooters on this holiday weekend. We still had a few shooters from Cavalier and West Virginia. We even had one new shooter join the group, I believe from West Virginia, Dwight Seldon.  The brownies were devoured by the end of the match. 

David Vance took first place with a score of 32.   There was a three way tie for second and third places. George Harris, John Marhefka and John Johnson all shot a score of 29.  After a lengthy shoot off, John Johnson won second place and John Marhefka took third place. Bill Jenks won 10th.

The next Ram Bash is Saturday, January 27.  This will be a regular Ram Bash at 200 meters.

Air Rifle Program

FXRGC sealDecember 18, 2017 - Got a youngster who wants to learn to shoot and earn marksmanship classifications? Got a few minutes free on Tuesday nights? Air Rifle program imageThe Air Rifle Program might be for you. Our target audience is youngsters aged 9 through 19 but adults are certainly welcome to try their hand. Youngsters younger than 9 are allowed, if in the opinion of the match director, they are capable of safe gun handling.

All shooting is with air rifles at olympic size targets at 10 meters, governed by the Winchester/NRA qualification program. Each qualification level achieved is rewarded with a certificate and a medal.

We start with the fundamentals of marksmanship and safe gun handling. The shooter fires from a supported (sandbag) prone position and progresses through mastery of the prone, kneeling, and standing positions.

A $2 fee is assessed for each range session. This covers the cost of targets, air (rifles are charged from a scuba tank), pellets, and awards.

Come on out and give it a try. Inform any of your friends who might be interested. For more information contact the program coordinator at air.rifle@fxrgc.org.

[UPDATE] Fairfax Highpower Spring League

Small FXRGC sealDecember 2nd, 2017 - A slight change to the previously published dates:  The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) just published a revised schedule for the Eastern CMP Cup and CMP Games.  For those not aware, this is a HUGE match and a goodly number of our HP shooters attend religiously.  Unfortunately that revised schedule presents a conflict with Spring League match 2 (Apr 27 and 28).  So we're moving match 2 to the previous weekend (Apr 21 and 22).
 
So the spring league schedule is now:
Mar 17, 2018 - work/shoot
Apr 7/8 - match 1
Apr 21/22 - match 2
May 5/6 - match 3
May 19/20 - match 4
 
The calendar on the Fairfax RGC web site has been ammended to show these dates.
 
Regards,
Dan Gray
HP Match Director
