CMP Match report

Posted by Raymond Goin on September 15, 2014 at 6:05 PM Comments comments (0)

The September Foosland Sportmen's Club CMP clinic and match was a great success. 22 shooters showed up for the clinic and match with 8 first time competitors and two women. The classroom session provided basic marksmanship and rifle operations for many service rifles including the Garand, 1903 A3, M1 Carbine, M1A and AR-15. Participants learned the two key principles of marksmanship and the process of build good shooting positions. The weather was outstanding and the lunch provided was too. Did you get some of the dessert!

 

 

 

 

First time competitor Dale Engel topped the competition in the Garand class with a 238-2X score. Nine other shooters competed in the classic battle rifle completion and shard the history of shooting these rifles with Dan Rawlings, Tom Woodroffe and Tim Dazy posting good scores over 210 points (70%). Dale also shot a 219 using an 1903 A3 Springfield in the second relay.

 

 

 

 

The Modern Military class of AR 15 rifle shooters had nine competitors. New shooter Cain Kiser posted an outstanding score of 88-1x in the offhand stage using a 16" M4 carbine. Tim Dazy showed what happens when you shoot more often by posting a personal record 273-5x. Tim has competed in three matches this season and seen his scores increase in every match from 220 in April, 265 last month at Leroy and now a 273 today. Julie Gustafson was the top woman shooter with some very good prone scores.

 

 

 

 

The high score posted on Sunday sets a new FSC club record of 292-13x for the 300 point match. The results are shown in the attached document.

DNR Hunter Safety class

Posted by Raymond Goin on August 24, 2014 at 10:30 PM Comments comments (0)

     The Foosland Sportsmens Club again hosted a DNR Hunter Safety class. We had 41 students on Saturday. One of the students was unable to attend the class on Sunday. Some of these folks traveled 45+ miles, each way, to attend both days of this class.

     Lunch was provided for all in attendance. Champaign County Pheasants Forever donated  the beverages for the entire weekend class.

     40 students took the test and all 40 passed, and recieved their GREEN HUNTER SAFETY card. It was a great class and we had a lot of compliments on the club and grounds.

     At the end of the program every student, 16 and under, was given  a raffle ticket for a prize drawing. Each walked away with a special outdoorsy item.

     Special THANK YOU go out to the Volunteer Instructors that help to pass along their passion for the outdoors. Curt Sinclair, Tom Bates (and Piatt County Double Beards), Wendy Brock, Amanda Goin, and CPO Trent Reeves. Without their help we could not do this program.
