Polk County Gun Club concluded the COVID-19 abbreviated 2020 NRA High Power Rifle Season last Saturday, September 19, 2020.
In total we successfully completed 2 matches, July and September. The weatherman cancelled the August match by predicting doom and gloom rain.

Last Saturday could not have had more perfect weather, temperature around 61 degrees all day with overcast skies. We had a competitor/visitor Harold Mauck, from Hutchinson, Kansas. Harold is working on his "bucket list" by competing in a High Power Rifle Match in every state of the Union. Harold picked Polk County Gun Club for his match in North Carolina. He expressed appreciation for allowing him to compete at PCGC and he also expressed delight for the hospitality he was shown by PCGC Members and the camaraderie. As he left, Harold said that next time he is in NC he would like to return and compete with us.

Haley Robinson was the overall Match Winner with a score 789-34x.
1st Master was Harold Mauck with a score of 763-20x
1st Sharpshooter was Sam Summey with a score 713-6x

Greg Ficklin announced that he would be holding the CMP Military and Modern High Power Rifle Clinics the third Saturday Starting in October throughout the Winter months concluding with the Annual Frozen Chosin Korean War Commemorative Match in February. These clinics are a great way to learn the basics of high power rifle competition.

Polk County Gun Club opened our 2021 High Power Rifle Competition Season with our (non-sanctioned) annual club match The Frozen Chosin Commemorative last Saturday February 20. The weather was what would be expected for February (for a change) 25 degrees and quite windy throughout the day. The temperature climbed into the low 40s later on. The match was intended to be shot on the electronic targeting system but the batteries failed on the computer (due to the cold) that is used to control the system. We had to run the match using the old standby system of "walk and paste". There was 11 hearty souls to participate, Patrick McCraw showed up to compete with a Mauser 1898 (circa 1902) shooting the old style open Mauser sight. Patrick certainly gave everyone a "run for their money" including Ken Lore (Match Winner 363-5Xs/400) with his 2nd place performance (346-1X/400). Jim Laietta finished 3rd (338-2Xs/400). Most competitors shot M1s, Russ Templeton shot a CEMTNE.

First I will start off by apologizing to last month's (April) competitors, I just forgot to post the match bulletin. This month's posting will include both results.

Yesterday, May 15th 2021 turned out to be a beautiful day. Our attendance was somewhat depleted due to the Colonial Pipeline shutdown of the fuel supply for the East Coast of the US.

Again, like last month we had some outstanding scores posted.

On Saturday June 19,2021 PCGC held our NRA Service Rifle match. It was a beautiful bright day with tolerable temperature. The Silver Mountain Targeting System functioned better than ever without any significant delays. We had some problems with a couple of electronic viewing devices but they were not associated with the SMT System. I encourage everyone who has one to bring their own Tablet with fully charged battery. I have an 8 inch I-pad and it seems to be large enough for my 73 YO eyes to see enough detail. We had one full relay of 10 members and concluded competition by 11:10 AM.

I want to congratulate one of our Juniors Ethan Fullam (his second match at PCGC) for an outstanding performance picking up 4 percentage points giving him a solid Sharpshooter score. The coaches and Jr members put in quite a lot of time in practice and their performance in PCGC and competition at Camp Butner is certainly evident.

Below is posted the match results in .pdf and Excel format.

Saturday July 17, 2021 PCGC held our Monthly NRA Service Rifle Match. A beautiful but a typical summer day 92 degrees with a slight breeze from the NE. We had 12 competitors, 6 adults and 6 of our Junior Marksmanship Team who are all heading to The CMP National Matches at Camp Perry, OH. I am sure there are several of the adults will also be heading to Camp Perry too. It was good to see Page Arrington and Nelson again shooting with us. A congratulations is in order for Sarah K. for attaining a Master Classification, she also performed well this weekend.

Below is listed the Match Report for July.
