To all:


We waited a whole year for an Arizona resident to win the Arizona State Championship only to be robbed once again!

I guess when you have one of the finest ranges in the United States, located in an area that has awesome weather in the winter time, you are going to get a bunch of folks jumping at the chance to get out of the cold for a week and do some shooting.

Once again the "snowbirds" denied the locals from winning the Arizona State Scope Championship.

To all:


There are so many stories to tell about this years Arizona State BPCR Silhouette Championships that I don't know where to start.

I guess the best thing to do is start with who is the 2009 Arizona State Champion.

Surprise, it's NOT Mike Rix!!

Butch Ulsher made the trip from Montana with his shooting partner Mark Griffis and worked his way back into the winners circle by putting together back to back 32X40s to secure the match win.

Saturday was smooth sailing with almost perfect weather conditions and the scores showed it but Sunday morning greeted everyone with gusting winds and chilly temperatures by Arizona standards. Most thought this was going to be a repeat of last year with the strong north winds blowing the targets down but by the end of the first relay everything was back to normal and the wind flags were hanging limp on their poles.

Keeping Butch honest were three Arizona shooters. Ron Calderone, Chip Mate and Jerry Cambern all had their eyes on the "Cactus Trophy" and the first ever Arizona resident win, but Butch is at his best when the competition is tough. Although he gave up the Sunday match win to Ron he managed to secure the overall championship with an aggregate score of 64X80.

JROTC rifle team busts records

Tucson, Arizona | Published: 12.17.2009

On Dec. 5, Flowing Wells High School JROTC buried five years of second-place frustration with a resounding win over the previously unbeaten Tuba City High School rifle team.

It capped off a nationally sanctioned match in which the top six JROTC rifle teams in Arizona -- from outside the Phoenix metro area -- converged on the Flowing Wells campus for a regional championship.

The other teams were from Buena, Dysart and Marcos de Niza high schools and Hopi Junior/Senior High School.

Teams were selected for the match based on a cumulative scoring of five previous state matches involving 12 high schools.

After the day's final shot, Flowing Wells JROTC members Tyler Rico (yep, TRC's own Tyler Rico!), Brett Coldron, Rudy Teyechea and Cody Larger had respectively taken first, third, fourth and fifth place.

The awards ceremony began with Arizona Friends of the NRA granting the $2,400 to the Flowing Wells JROTC program.

The Flowing Wells score of 2,149 is a school and state record. The team is headed to the state championship match Jan. 16 in Phoenix and hopes to move on to the national championships in March.
