.22 Rifle Biathlon
If you are interested in trying this sport, please contact me. We will have a training day during the May 2nd Trail Plate activities. The format will be a very easy bike ride followed by a trip to the rifle range. You will shoot 5 rounds standing, 5 rounds prone, and back to 5 rounds standing. Your rifle will be posted in a rack and not carried on your bike. As you return to the shooting range, you will retrieve your rifle and move to the shooting line, fire your 5 rounds and place your cleared rifle back in the rack. This is a total timed event, penalties will be added for missed targets. We will need some volunteers to help score and keep time, so bring the family. We will try to make this a fun day at your club. Info Tom Olden 471 7925 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Steel Challenge will begin again on Friday, May 2nd and will continue every Friday until September 18th. Mark your calendars so you can come out and shoot some steel!
