Air Rifle Competition – February Meet

What: Air Rifle Competition – February Meet
When: Sunday, February 25, 2024
Practice starts at 12:00 PM
Competition starts at 1:00 PM
Where: DCC Clubhouse, Lower Locker Area
Join us for our annual air rifle competition in the lower locker area of the DCC. We will meet on the fourth Sunday afternoon in the months of January, February, and March starting at noon:
– January 28, 2024
– February 25, 2024
– March 24, 2024
We shoot air rifles with lead pellets at paper targets at the 10-meter range with a backstop. Each month will feature 5-6 targets with 5-10 shots at each target. Scores will be tallied each month, and the winners of the three-month competition will be announced in the categories of rifle/scoped, rifle/iron sights, and pistol.
The purpose of this event is to promote the safe handling of firearms and to hone individual marksmanship skills. It is also something that can be done at the Club when most fair-weather paddlers like me are not going to be on the water. Beginning each month will be a review of safety rules. Children are welcome with their accompanying guardians. Chairpersons this year will again be Al Pierce and Clyde Collins. The range will be warmed up and open at noon each month for practice and sighting -in your gun, with competition starting at 1:00 PM. The competition will last approximately two hours, depending on the number of participants. There will be a limited number of spare guns available if you have not acquired one yet.
Order a long sleeve pocket T-shirts or hats with “DCC Air Rifle Team” on them from the DCC Merchandise store.
Most importantly, soup or chili and other snacks and appetizers are usually brought in by participants each month!
If you have any questions at all, call or contact Al Pierce at 937-361-2898. If you can, let Al know if you are interested in participating by RSVPing. This is not mandatory. Thank you!
