Tucson July 600 Yard Match Cancellation


This is to advise that the Tucson Rifle Club monthly 600 yard prone match for July 5, 2009 is CANCELLED.  As many of you know, the 600 yard line is currently unusable due to damage incurred last month.  Several work parties are scheduled this week to complete the necessary repairs.  Any volunteer help would be greatly appreciated.  The work schedule is as follows:

There will be work parties on Fri 3 Jul through Sun 5 Jul 09 with Mon 6 Jul as a CYA day.

Start time will be around 0530 to beat the heat.

The mission is to repair the 600 yard firing line.

The plan is:

-Fri 3 Jul - Frame line with lumber, fill and level soil as much as possible

-Sat 4 Jul - Finish fill and level, rake in soil cement, water, tamp, and let cure

-Sun 5 Jul - Spread decomposed granite and finish

Bring landscaping tools (shovels, rakes, wheelbarrows, etc), cordless power tools, and as many garden hoses as you can lay your hands on.

Also bring normal working outside in Tucson in July stuff (water, lunch, sunscreen, hat, gloves, etc, etc)

Everyone will receive a $10 Highpower coupon for each day they work.

I realize the timing could be better but it's due to circumstances beyond our control :-/

When we're done we should have a 600yd line that's as nice as the 200.

June John C Garand Match will be held as scheduled!


Just a reminder,
Tucson Rifle Club's monthly John C Garand Match will be held this coming Sunday 21 Jun 09.
Range gate opens around 0630.  If the office isn't open yet you must still sign-in before you leave for the day.
Squadding on the 200 yardline after the pits are setup; first round downrange at 0700.
Match fee is $10 for adults; juniors and military shoot for free.
Ammunition is available for use in the match: $10 for 60 rounds of .30-'06 M2 Ball.  This will probably be the last month ammo will be available at this price.  Due to a price increase at CMP, starting in Jul or Aug the price will go up to $15.
Several privately-owned rifles and carbines are available for loan free of charge.  Club ammo must be purchased and used.  Contact me if you need one.
Reduced targets to simulate the standard National Match Course are available on request.  Ask for them when squadding.
See you there,
