The SMGC will allow active duty military to shoot this weekend at a $5 per day rate in order to provide a practice venue for the Western Divisional Matches.

The Saturday Course of Fire may be slightly modified on the day of the match.

Assuming enough military shooters show up on Saturday (02/27) who want to practice 200/300/500 yards on the 5V target in preparation for the Western Divisional Matches, the course of fire will be modified as follows:

1. Live fire will begin at 200 yards using 5V targets for the respective military participants.
2. Shooters will move back to the 300 yard line at which point the Mid-Range prone participants will begin shooting (Mid-Range 300/500/600 begins). Military shooters who want to use 5V targets will do so on the 300 yard line.
3. Shooters will move back to the 500 yard line and it will function just like the 300 yard line. MR participants will shoot as normal, military on the 5V (if desired).
4. Shooters will then move back to the 600 yard line to complete the 600 yard stage of fire for the MR match. Military shooters may opt to fire at the 600 yard line (if desired).

The Sunday Across the Course Course of Fire will remain 80 rounds, 200/300/600.

In addition,

There will be several pullers available for hire on a first come first served basis.

The rate is $20.00 per relay/shooter, a tip if always good if you get good service.

Pullers will arrive at 0650-0700 for those wanting to be first in line.

Will the match be called if there's rain...or will you shoot no matter what?

I am watching the weather continuously and at this point I'm not convinced it will amount to anything that will affect us.

Of course if it's a deluge we'll call it, but it's not shaping up that way.

Looks to me like it'll be like the past couple of storms where we might put Gortex on for a half hour or so. Be sure to bring those tarps or ponchos though.

See you on the Range,

Tomorrow is a go. All personnel are on board and there are a number of Marines showing up as well.

See you all at the Range, be sure to bring covers, tarps, gortex, ect.
