    Default Tamaqua Rimfire Sporter match

    On March 5th the Tamaqua Rifle and Pistol Club will be holding a Rimfire Sporter match. This match is open to the public, membership in the club is not required. A free practice match will be held at 10:30am, followed by sign up for the afternoon match starting at noon. This is 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. It is 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. The March 5th match is unsanctioned but future matches will hopefully be sanctioned with the CMP if there is sufficient attendance to convince the club to file the paperwork. In addition to open iron sights, aperture/scope sights, and tactical 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 entry fee for the afternoon match is $10 for adults, $5 for juniors.

    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 this year will be held Saturday August 5th at 9am. There will be no matches in October or November due to a schedule conflict.

    This sounds like a good deal of fun. I wish I wasn't out of the area for the August match, or I might consider the drive out to you guys!
