We had a good turn out for the Spring CMP Rifle Clinic on Saturday 4/20/19. We had 10 clinic attendees including four new attendees. After a morning of classroom instruction and hands on training and a wonderful lunch provided by the club, the shooters took to the 100 yard range and fired a 50 shot match in some pretty strong winds. Results of the are shown below. Attached spreadsheet also has all past results and Club Records.
