September 15,2018, in spite of the approaching hurricane Polk County Gun Club held the final NRA XTC match of 2018. 6 hearty souls competed with one really hearty lady from our bench rest venue who agreed to "call the match" and act as the match director. The competitors braved a 19 mph wind that seemed almost constant except sudden nulls. The wind was about 22 degrees off of the axis of the range but did a job buffeting the competitors. The high score for the day was 750/800 which, with the conditions, was a really good performance. Rain hit us, backed by the wind, during the last 30 minutes. We completed the match with the 300/600 slow fire prone in the rain. True to form the rain stopped right at the end of the 20 minute period. We actually had 5 complete the course of fire, Jim Laietta had to withdraw due to rain induced equipment failure.
Myself and Jim Laietta (co-chairman High Power Rifle Committee) would like to thank Shelly Gudger who called the match, this is her first introduction of Across the Course High Power Rifle competition. She did an excellent job calling the match.
The "race" for season aggregate awards, as you will see, was narrowed to 6 competitors who shot 3 or more matches.
I will get the awards made for presentation at a later date.

On Saturday April 20, 2019 Polk County Gun Club held their first NRA Sanctioned across the course high power rifle match. We had 10 competitors who braved inclement weather and a deficit of participants due to this being Easter Weekend. Several of our regulars had spouses who were in very ill health were also absent. We pray that those ill persons have speedy recoveries. PCGC will be running an aggrate competition of the three best scores through out the season as we did last year. We will award three medals for each of the three top finishers for each NRA classification. In addition, to hopefully increase attendance, we are adding a non-NRA category of stock as issued AR and M4 and will make awards to the top finisher of each class in this category.

Here is the results from the April match.

On May 18, 2019 PCGC held the second High Power XTC Service Rifle Match of the summer tournament.
I apologize for being tardy in reporting the May scores. Jim Laietta and I have been working diligently to get the Silver Mountain Electronic Scoring system equipment together. The biggest effort so far is building the uniform size target frames and getting the plastic hardware mounted to them accurately. We intend to put some more effort on Friday to get this completed.

I want to thank the 11 competitors who came to PCGC to participate in match. We hope you can find the time to compete with us in the June match, We will not hold a July match due to interference with the National Matches at Camp Perry and Camp Atterbury but we will resume the summer tournament in August. Posted with May's results is a tabulation of the scores for the Summer Aggregate (best three out of five matches).

Saturday June 15,2019 PCGC held our monthly XTC (Across the Course) Service rifle match.
It was a beautiful day weather in the mid to high 80s with a slight wind blowing.
We had 16 competitors, Dwayne Lewis brought some new comers from Camp Valor organization, Chris Blankenship came up from the coast, and Travis McCoy was a first timer at PCGC. Welcome gentlemen we are glad to have you. Many of our university students we able to attend too. 5 of our competitors shot scores above their classifications, my congratulations to all in your progress to the next classification level.
PCGC is getting closer and closer to getting to the point that we can use the new Silver Mountain electronic scoring system that we recently purchased with NRA Foundation Grant. It is our fondest hope that the system will be up and running by the match in August, the only stumbling block is the match directors learning to operate the system smoothly. We plan to spend July in practice matches. Thomas McManus has graciously volunteered to be a guinea pig and be a test competitor.
Below is the results of Saturday's match.
