July Smallbore Metallic Silhouette scores posted

Next mowing date is set for 8am Monday morning, July 26th, weather permitting. 

One of the mowers suffered substantial damage to the left front caster and tire. The Caster shaft ($205) was bent as was the tire mounting bracket, a part of the assembly. This caused the wheel to rub the bent mount causing the wheel bearing failure damaging the rim to the point that it will not hold a bearing. Immediately parking the mower could have possibly saved the tire ($102). Replacement of the damaged parts over $300.

Both of these machines were returned to the dealers at the beginning of the season and given a thorough inspection correcting all worn or damaged parts.

Treat these machines with respect, you are not mowing a manicured lawn, it is a field with ruts, holes and rocks. All will  cause damage and shorten the life of these machines.

IDPA Matches have resumed. We  have a crew that has contacted Tom for the set-up and S.O. help. Set-up starts at 7am, match will start at 10am. We will have 5 stages. We will not have lunch available from the Boy Scouts as in the past.  See you at the match.

Due to loosening of mask mandates in numerous states, and consistent with CDC guidelines, MDRC is revising their COVID-19 mask requirements to:  The wearing of masks is optional at the IDPA and Steel Challenge matches (but encouraged if you have not been vaccinated).

Smallbore Silhouette have started and will continue on the third Sunday of each month. Setup will start at noon and Registration at 12:30pm. Shooting to commence at 1:00pm.

Another improvement:

Restroom door is now online. No more fighting with the key. You will be able to access the restroom with the same card used for the gate. Bench House door will follow later this spring.
