Grenville Match Report

August 15th, 2021

After a lengthy delay, here’s a quick write up on the match in Grenville.

We have a solid turn out of 12 shooters in both Hunter Piston, PCP and WFTF Piston. An interesting fact, 10 of the shooters were in a piston class! A first for the club to see so many piston shooters. My bias plainly on my sleeve – outstanding!

The match was a great success with “Cold Line” Hemming only have to call out once! Another first with so few issues (not there is often very many).

The day dawned clear and cool for mid-August. No one was complaining either! The mosquitos were few and far between too!

The biggest challenge were the shadows. It added a wonderful challenge to a course which saw a good number of reducers out to max range. A worthy course for a wonderful day.

We had everything wrapped up and away by about 2:00 PM.

A big thanks to the Grenville Fishing and Game Club for hosting and the volunteers – Tim Mac, Dave C, John B and Blane L – for their hard work to get everything ready for an outstanding day of shooting. Thank you!

HAHA: 28 August 2021 Match

HAHA Field Target Match Report

August 28, 2021

Last Saturday proved to be great day for our second field target match of 2021. Warm temps, no rain and some shifty HAHA winds provided the perfect backdrop for our match. Ok, maybe I exaggerate with it being “warm”. It was 41C with humidity and some call this damn hot!!!

Twenty-one shooters started arriving early Saturday morning making set up smooth and quick. After a brief shooters meeting, the match started on time. Despite having 10 groups of 2 and a single, we managed to finish by 2:15 and had the course cleaned up quickly thereafter. The match director was a bit tardy tallying the scores and there was a HUGE desire to get into vehicle air conditioning so shoot offs were not held for the two first place ties that happened!

A special thank-you to the volunteers who showed up early to cut the grass (Jeff) and get the range ready for the day. These events can only run smoothly/on time with volunteers. Please remember to thank them and consider helping at an upcoming match.

Congratulations to our division winners and co-winners:

Len and Lanny – PCP Open co-winners

James – PCP WFTF

Rob and Tony – PCP Hunter co-winners

Brian – Piston WFTF

Marc – Piston Hunter

Some pics – HAHA. Good luck to those attending the Canadian Championships at the Grenville Club September 11,12. Hope to see everyone again at our September 25th match here at HAHA

HAHA: First Match for 2021

HAHA Field Target Match Report 

July 24, 2021 

The first match of our Covid delayed season is now in the books.  The weather was warm with rain showers (which were heavy at times) and some shifty winds.  I think we were all very glad to be sheltered from the rain by the overhead structure on the rifle range yesterday!   

In total, twenty-three shooters attended including four new shooters.  Welcome Rob, Ryan, Tom and Mike – hope to see you back for our August 28th match.  Thank-you to our veteran shooters who took these new hopefuls under their care and showed them the sport we love. 

Also, a special thank-you to the volunteers who showed up early to cut the grass and get the range ready for the day.  These events can only run smoothly/on time with volunteers.   Please remember to thank them and consider helping at an upcoming match. 

Congratulations to our division winners:

Grenville July 2021 Match Report

July 11th, 2021

Match Report

It is a great pleasure to write this post!  We finally had our first match of 2021!

With the recent openings we were able to get together at the Grenville Fish & Game Club.  A big thank you to the club for moving forward and allowing us to hold matches!

Big shout out to JPB for the outstanding pics.  If you haven’t seen his post check it out.

14 shooters come from the local area and as far away as Toronto and Bradford.  Thank you all for the coming out and some rather early starts!  A special shout out to our first-time shooter, Richard Turgeon.  Look forward to seeing you, and everyone else at the August match!

It was a great day for shooting with everyone arriving by 9:00 AM and on the site in range shortly afterwards.  We started out with reasonable conditions and bright sunshine on the site in line. 

The shooters meeting started at 10:15 AM and we were on the course by 11:00 AM.

Being typical Grenville as soon as we went in the forest the wind vanished and the sun cast lots of shadows.  Then the humidity started followed by the mosquitoes… it got so humid even the mosquitoes went home… not us thought.  Everyone persevered and had a great shoot!

We were cleaned up and awards presented by 2:30 PM and everyone on the road by 3:00 PM.

The biggest thank you to everyone that came out!  We were excited to host you all and look forward the next get together – August 15th.   Stay tuned to your email and the forums for more information.  Also, for those down Hamilton way, there will be a match at HAHA on July 24th.
