Tucson 600 Yard Match - December

Tucson Smallbore Prone Results - December


Our monthly smallbore prone match was held on December 11, 2005, at Tucson Rifle Club. Six shooters attended in chilly, overcast weather but with minimal wind conditions. Complete results are on the attached Excel spreadsheet.

I am happy to announce that we have received approval to continue our matches for 2006. Our schedule will remain on the second Sunday of every month.

To summarize our 2005 season, a total of 20 shooters participated throughout the year, with an average of seven shooters per match. I had hoped to average nine or ten, so please consider attending more often and try to recruit a companion. Our match entry fees were just enough to cover the TRC range fees and one year's worth of targets. Thanks to all who attended and encouraged me to continue the program in 2006.

Our next match, therefore, will be on Sunday, January 8, 2006. See you then!

Greg Fallon
Match Director
