Avenal Gun Club
BPCRS Match Results
February 13, 2010


Springtime has arrived at Avenal. The hills are green, the winds are calm, and the mirage will get you if you donít pay attention. 23 shooters enjoyed the sunshine and shooting. A great time was had by all and it was good to see friends who havenít been able to make the trip to Avenal for a while.

Rich Davis was Scope Match winner with a 31. Chris Rogers shot a 27 to take Iron Sight Match winner. Nice shooting!

Congratulations to Jeanette Rogers for shooting a 26 Ė her third AAA score. She moves up to AAA and now she and Chris can battle it out in the same class. It may be a long ride home no matter who wins!

Indoor Gallery Matches: Our monthly Friday night indoor gallery matches are back and entirely too much fun. An informal gallery match that will leave you wondering why you havenít joined us before. Although we prefer vintage single shot rifles with vintage scopes, any 22 caliber rimfire rifle (NO MAGNUMS) with any type of sight is acceptable. Bring along your trusty 22 and find out what this is all about.

Friday Afternoon Pistol Match: Something new weíre adding to the weekend. The Avenal Gun Club has a very nice pistol range and we plan to make use of it. The program will change from month to month but will always be geared towards having fun. Bring your favorite sidearm (rim or center fire) and plenty of ammo (NO MAGNUM LOADS)

Lever Gun Range: Work is continuing on our lever gun range and we hope to be shooting matches later this year. Get your rifles ready or start looking for one. We will be shooting rifle and pistol caliber matches. Later on we will be adding 200 yard 22 BPCR and 22 lever gun matches. These matches will be held the Sunday following our regular monthly BPCR Silhouette match.

The California Black Powder Cartridge Rifle Silhouette Championship Match will be held April 9th through April 11th 2010 at the Avenal Gun Club.

Pre-registration will be required with a limit of 60 shooters each for Scope and Iron Sight matches. Registration forms and fees can be submitted in person at any of the monthly Avenal BPCR matches or mailed. Registration forms with fees need to be received no later than March 27, 2009. We are expecting a big turn-out for this event so please send in your forms and fees in early.

The Scope match will take place on Friday April 9th, 2010, and will be a 60 shot match.

The Iron Sight match will consist of two 40 shot programs, one each on Saturday April 10th, 2010, and Sunday April 11th, 2010.

Aggregate scoring will determine awards for the Iron Sight match.

Our next match will be March 13, 2010. Hope to see you, then.
