Our 3rd Annual Veterans Day Funshoot is coming up this Sunday! All proceeds from this fundraiser go to Wreaths Across America. This organization places wreaths on the graves of the veterans at National Cemeteries, our wreaths go to San Joaquin Valley National Cemetery.
The day starts with the High Power Rifle Match, $15 per relay – each relay is about 50 rounds and consists of 4 stages.
About the same time we have the Pistol Funshoot, $5 per relay – each relay is at least 48 rounds and consists of 8 fun stations where you get to shoot various types of targets (there is an extra 9th station that takes extra rounds).
Then starting at noon is the Trap Funshoot, $15 per shooter, try your skills at various shooting games: sliders, wobbles, follow the leader, chips, etc…
This year the members from the Oakdale VFW Aux will be BBQing up some hotdogs and polish dogs for lunch (additional donation), starting at 11am.
Hi cowboys and cowgirls,
We had another beautiful day of shooting down by the river. Welcome back to those that we haven’t seen in awhile. Congrats to Steeltown Duke and
J.W. Trader for getting a clang with every bang. We’ll be back tomorrow for Wild Bunch. Grab your 1911’s and come play. Our next cowboy match will be Sunday April 28th. See ya on the range.
Hey cowboys and cowgirls,
Thanks to everyone who came out to shoot with us on a beautiful dry day. Congrats to Rum Walker who was our top dog and shot the match clean. Woo Hoo! Also shooting the match clean were Jimmy Frisco, Shenandoah, and Wolf Creek Bodine. Wolf Creek shot his last match with us for awhile as he and his lovely lady are off to a new house and club in Idaho. Happy Trails pard, we’ll see ya up north. Our next match will be on Sat April 6th, and Wild Bunch will be Sun April 7th.
Our sport, the shooting sport, is one of the safest hobbies because of basic common sense rules supervised by Range Safety Officers. To help more of our members join that elite group Manteca Sportsmen Inc. is sponsoring another official NRA RSO certification class.
NRA Instructor, Club member and Chief Range Safety Officer Richard “Dick” Reizner will lead the class sharing his 60 plus years of shooting experience. Dick said, “While the information the class provides is important, the RSO’s attitude in passing it on is what really makes the range safe for shooters.”
The two sessions will be held at the Manteca Sportsmen Inc. range, 30261 Airport Way Manteca on March 10 and 17 from noon to 5:00 PM (must attend both sessions to complete the course).
The cost for club members is $35, for non-members it is $150. The class is normally priced at about $180.
Here are the scores from yesterday’s match. It looks like it was a pretty good turnout since quite a few of our regulars were off shooting the State Wild Bunch. Thanks for coming out. Congratulations to San Joaquin shootist who was the top shooter for the match. It looks like Shenandoah was the only one to get a clang with every bang. Good shootin’ pards. Our next cowboy match will be Saturday May 5th, with Wild Bunch on Sunday the 6th.
