    Default Tamaqua Rimfire Sporter matches

    Starting March 5th, the Tamaqua Rifle and Pistol Club will begin holding rimfire sporter matches. Currently scheduled for the first Saturday of most months from March through November. They are a good introduction to formal rifle competition without the equipment investment, and are a good practice for your squirrel rifle before you put it away till fall. Shot at 50 and 25 yards from three different field positions (standing, kneeling or sitting, and laying prone) it includes both slow fire and rapid fire stages. They are currently unsanctioned, future matches will be sanctioned with the CMP if there is sufficient attendance. In addition to the three classes covered by the CMP, we are also running an 'unlimited' class for any rifles that don't quite make the specs such as 22 uppers and conversions or fun guns like the gsg stg44.

    The morning of the March 5th match there will be a free 'half-course' practice match starting at 10:30am.

    Weather channel, accuweather, and wnep are all over the place with their forecasts for tommorow afternoon. Just cloudy, isolated showers, or showers. In the event of rain in the afternoon at the range, the match will be postponed until next Saturday, April 9th. In any case should at least be in the 50s by afternoon so about 10 degrees warmer than last month that chased alot of people away.

    The last match of the season will be held on Saturday August 5th at 9am instead of 1pm. There will be no match in September or October this year due to scheduling conflicts.
