FEBRUARY 3, 2019 - PETITCODIAC - 22BR RESULTS

We had a nice sunny day to shoot. The temperature started out at -14C and warmed up to -6 in the
early afternoon. Winds were light to moderate, so the windchill was not as bad as predicted, but cold enough. And no snow! A couple of the shooters who shot at yesterday's match 
in Lake George decided to pass on this one as their fingers were still suffering from the effects of yesterday's cold temperatures and blowing snow.

Dan G. installed the new "Bennett Blinds" to block the sunglare off the snow for the shooters. They worked well.
Thanks to Barb J. for the delicious sweets and Dan's TimBits. They went well with the crowd surrounding the warming wood stove.
Thanks to all for handling the ice control on the stairs, keeping wood in the stove, target setting and Range Officering. The shoot went fast and all enjoyed it. We are looking to warmer weather next time!
Your Director, Volker T.

FEBRUARY 2, 2019 - LAKE GEORGE GUN CLUB - 22BR

Thanks to Barb J. for sending this report.

"We had a lovely day at Lake George yesterday. Much quieter on the firing line with no distractions. The morning 
relays had sun-cloud conditions with little wind but numbing cold. After lunch, the weather changed with a vengeance. Heavy swirling snow with winds coming in all directions. I'm afraid the Groundhog saw his shadow in 
the morning as the temperature did not improve.


Our thanks to Range Officers- Bruce B., Darryl K. and Barb J. Also to Target Changers- Bruce B., Cecil H. and Barb J. Thanks  to Scorekeepers Dave C. and Carl J. and the Photographer Darryl K. Bruce brought lunch and Barb brought sweets. Congratulations to the winners and thanks to Bruce for keeping the Clubhouse warm to thaw out the frozen trigger- fingers. Thanks, Bruce, for another great shoot in Terry's memory.

JANUARY 5, 2019 - LAKE GEORGE GUN CLUB - 22BR OPEN & SPORTER


Our thanks to Darryl K. who sent this write-up: 
"The match was hosted by Lake George Gun Club and put on by Bruce B.  The weather was unbelievably warm for January 5th - no wind at all throughout the match.  This shooter has never witnessed that before. The wind flags hung motionless throughout the match with no job to do. With this condition there was some very fine shooting by all. There was plenty to eat for all, Bruce B. brought the hot dogs, buns and refreshments, and Barb J. with her outstanding cooking of mince pies, banana bread and cinnamon raisin loaf. Dave C. was head scorer with Carl J. doing the verifying.  Wayne K. and Cecil H. set targets. Range Officer duties were performed by Bruce B., Dave C. and Darryl K. Pictures taken by Barb J. and Darryl K,  I hope I have not forgoten anybody for this great tribute shoot for Terry."
Thanks also to Barb J. who sent this:
"It was a terrific day at Lake George. Organizer and Match Director Bruce B. conducted a great shoot in Terry's memory. Competition was keen with four perfect scores and several shooters with only one error. You will never believe it! NO WIND! The wind flags never moved throughout the match. It was nice to see Jerry J. and Steven S. competing with us. Our friends from Petitcodiac and Minto arrived safely and even Gerard D. arrived from Saint John after taking several scenic detours to find us. Thanks to everyone who brought food, took photos and helped out in any way. Terry would have been proud of our day. Thanks, Bruce."

DECEMBER 10,2018 - THANKS TO HIRSCH PRECISION

We want to thank Peter Dobson at Hirsch Precision for supporting the Benchrest shooting program at Petitcodiac Sportsman Club with a donation of a brick of Lapua CenterX. 

We were all glad to see her excitement when this was won in a raffle by Barb J.

DECEMBER 9, 2018 - PETITCODIAC CHRISTMAS SHOOT

Today was a cold one for sure. Temperatures started at -16C, going up to -8C, and add a bit of wind for the -27C windchill factor! 

But it was sunny, (which made for some sighting challenges due to the glare on the snow and into the scopes). Shooters installed blinders on the shutters to help reduce the glare. 



The wood stove was fired up early, and all arrived in good spirits to end the year with an array of fun targets and hope for a turkey. It was a good shoot and camaraderie was on a high note.


Thanks to all the guys who kept the stove going, set up target frames and posted targets, and assisted with score verification. Too many names to list without fear of omission. Everyone pitched in. Probably to keep moving to stay warm, lol.


We do especially thank Dan G. and the PSC Executive for acquiring approval to reopen the club shooting facilities, which is a big plus for all the club members. There are many individuals from a vast area who support this Club and depend on it for an excellent shooting facility, as well as their other interests in provincial wildlife and environmental pursuits.


Thanks to our two chefs, Bev T. and Joanne S., for  their work in providing a delicious hot meal, and Shelly C. for the sweets. Thanks as well as to Bruce B. for the great baked beans and rolls, to Dave C. for his good as always brown-bread rolls, and to Dorothy McC. for her fine biscuits. It added up to one fine meal on a very cold day.  No doubt it kept all all the shooters in top form to continue shooting in the cold. 


Today's pics were taken by Darryl K. and Barb J. - thanks.


Thanks to John C. who had a very busy routine gathering up all the prizes, especially last minute turkey procurement. And his great job of gift wrapping! Tom N. did a great job getting the clubhouse ready. In conclusion, kudos were given to all of the Rifle Committee members for their help in making this year a successful one. 

And now the list of winners...…….everyone was a winner, but a few left with a Christmas turkey. John M. had THE "Lucky target", Darryl K. was the best "Fly-catcher", John McC. shot the most "Snowflakes" and David C. managed most to stay out of the black on the squares. We wish you all exquisite delight in your taste buds!

And from the Petti shooters, a Merry Christmas to all and Best of health in the New Year!
Your obliging Director, Volker
