Club Events / Mission - February 2019 Benchrest Score Shoot
« on: February 14, 2019, 01:03:19 PM »
Six hardy shooters showed up to shoot Score for our February match.  Temperature was around minus 9, about the coldest I can recall for one of our matches. 

Conditions were bright and mild to begin, picking up for the 200 yard targets as the clouds moved in setting the stage for the afternoon snow that was to follow. 

Joe prepped the targets, Ted showed up as a non participant to run the match and let Joe concentrate on shooting.  Ted and Vlad took care of running and stripping the targets, Art handled scoring.  Thanks to all!

We upped our game to 5 targets at each range, and switched to 10-X scoring from our usual 10-11 version. 

Congrats to Art for the win.  Joe was close on his heels and would have won it under the old scoring system!

Next match is Sunday, March 10 and we'll shoot Group.  Have to start prepping for our registered BRSC Group Shoot on May 26.     

And the results...

Club Events / Mission - January 2019 Benchrest Group Shoot
« on: January 07, 2019, 04:28:50 PM »
We shot Group at our first match of the year.  We also shot 5 groups at both 100 and 200 yards (rather than our usual 4), as per benchrest convention. 

The storm that passed through Saturday night on its way to wreak havoc on the Coquihalla had largely dissipated by Sunday morning, and conditions were much better than forecast.   

Nine hearty souls showed up to compete.   
 
Thanks to Joe for preparing the targets and backers, running the match and measuring the targets.  Thanks also to those who helped set up and retrieve the targets. 

Next month our regular shoot is on February 10, and we'll be shooting Score.  Hope to see you all there.  If you plan to come, please email me (mdumont@uniserve.com) or Joe (joemendham@hotmail.com) to reserve your spot. 

Now that we shoot 5 groups at each range, the Bughole program happily provides us with better reports.  Congrats to Allan and Art for small groups at 100 and 200 yards respectively. 

And the results...

Club Events / Mission - December 2018 Benchrest Score Shoot
« on: December 04, 2018, 04:04:06 PM »
We shot Score at our regular monthly match.   

We were treated to a lovely late fall day, with conditions only rising a little for the 200 yard targets, certainly enough to blow you out of the 10 ring (ask me how I know!) 

10 of our regulars showed up to participate. 

Joe prepped the targets, Art & Joe ran the match, and Art scored.  Running and stripping the targets was very much a group effort!

Congrats to Ken on his win and great shooting at 100 yards.

Next match is Sunday, January 6 2019 and we'll shoot Group.  The 2019 schedule is complete and is posted on the club website.   

And the results...

Club Events / Mission - November 2018 Benchrest Score Shoot
« on: November 16, 2018, 03:34:32 PM »
We shot Score at our regular monthly match.   

We were treated to a lovely fall day, with conditions only rising a little for the 200 yard targets. 

8 shooters showed up to participate, and we welcomed two new shooters, Dustin and Noah. 

Joe prepped, ran and scored the targets, ran the match, and helped out our new shooters.  No wonder he didn't participate for some targets.  Art handled the $ and the safety briefing. 

Congrats to Art on the close win!

Next match is Sunday, December 2 and we'll shoot Score again - We'll also have our usual year-end gathering at Mission Springs after the match. 

And the results...

Club Events / Mission - October 2018 Benchrest Group Shoot
« on: October 21, 2018, 08:49:11 PM »
We shot Group at our regular monthly match.  A full turnout of 12 shooters got spectacular weather, with beautiful sunshine and calm conditions, although some small switches caught me at 200.
 
Mark shot the rail - Probably should have removed the results, but thought you might find it interesting.  With more conditions, the playing field gets a lot more level!   

Thanks to Joe for preparing the targets and backers, running the match and measuring the targets. 

Next month our regular shoot is on November 11, less than the usual month away.  Hope to see you all there.  If you plan to come, please email me (mdumont@uniserve.com) or Joe (joemendham@hotmail.com) to reserve your spot.

BRSC - Benchrest Shooters Canada / Mission - 2018 BRSC Nationals Results
« on: August 06, 2018, 05:03:16 PM »
22 shooters came from all across Canada as well as the US to compete in the 2018 BRSC Group Nationals at the Mission and District Rod and Gun Club.   

Temperatures rose throughout the two days of competition and the Mission mountainside took full advantage to present us with challenging conditions.   

Hugh Williamson proved the wind was his friend by winning both 200 yard aggs as well as all three combined aggs, Light Varmint, Heavy Varmint and Grand. 

Thanks to our target and scoring crews - Couldn't have done it without you!

Special thanks to all competitors, especially those who traveled to attend. 

Looks like we'll do it again next year, as long as the club brass will give us the range - Hope to see you all again.

Here are the results:

Club Events / Mission 22 Rimfire Benchrest - July 28, 2018
« on: July 29, 2018, 04:45:44 PM »
Our July match is our yearly Tournament, with prizes galore.  Bob proclaimed this year "the year of the hat". 

The weather was warm, and the conditions quite mild.  Bob trounced the field, winning the match as well as every target.  He also shot a nearly perfect 2450 on his first target, but there are still more worlds to conquer.  Ray prevailed in Sporter. 

Good to see Nev out again, along with new shooters Jay (a Junior) and Leo. 

Thanks to Bob and Paul for running the relays, to Bob for doing all the scoring and to Ken and Werner for doing the arithmetic.   

I was a little slow with the Equipment List forms, please let me know if there are any serious lies or omissions that need correction. 

Here are the results...

Club Events / Mission - 2018 Jim Latham Memorial VFS Shoot
« on: July 10, 2018, 09:49:31 PM »
Weather was beautiful for the sixth annual Fraser Valley VFS Championship.  We started at 300 yards before the mirage got bad enough to hide all bullet holes later in the day, followed by 200 and 100 yardages.

Thanks to all our shooters for participating, filling out the Equipment List forms and keeping the schedule tight. 

It was definitely a group effort - Joe ran the match, Art prepped the targets and Art and Sue did the scoring.  The young ones (Adrian and his friend) did the target running.   

Grand Agg:  1st Mark DuMont, 2nd Ken Lyth, 3rd Art Harder
100 yard Agg:  1st Mark DuMont, 2nd Denis Lapierre, 3rd Bob Goehring
200 yard Agg:  1st Ken Lyth, 2nd Joe Mendham, 3rd Mark DuMont
300 yard Agg:  1st Ken Lyth, 2nd Art Harder, 3rd Joe Mendham

Detailed match results:

« on: June 25, 2018, 09:03:11 PM »
Our May match brought mild conditions and some fancy scores. 

Thanks to Bob and Dave for running the relays, to Bob, Mel and Art for scoring and to Gord P for sorting and tracking the targets. 

The Equipment List section of the score sheet is looking a lot better - Thanks to all for taking the time to fill out the forms!

Congrats to Bob for the win in the Benchrest class.  And in the sporter class, Tim Peters managed to defeat Ray!  We need Nev back to swell the ranks of Sporter and to give tim and Ray some competition!

Here are the results...

Club Events / Mission - June 2018 Benchrest Score Shoot
« on: June 17, 2018, 04:21:53 PM »
We shot Score at our regular monthly match as a prep for the Jim Latham Memorial VFS shoot next month.   

Conditions were good at 100, then wilder at 200 before settling down. 

Mark your calendars for the Jim Latham Memorial VFS Shoot to be held on July 8 - Score shooting at 100, 200 and 300 yards. 

And the results...

« on: June 03, 2018, 08:43:26 PM »
I managed to miss the April match, but here are the results transcribed from the scoring sheets. 

Good to see that the spreadsheet agrees with the manual results, and that it is still possible to do them by hand!

Our May match brought tricky spring conditions.  Benchrest and Sporter classes each had their own relay to equalize the weather effects. 

Thanks to Bob and Paul K for running the match and to Bob, Mel and Art for scoring. 

We'd also like to welcome Danny Woodrow to his first time out. 

The Equipment List section of the score sheet is looking a lot better - Thanks to all for taking the time to fill out the forms!

Congrats to Bob for the win in the Benchrest class, and to Ray for the win in Sporter.  We need Nev back to give Ray some competition.     

Here are the results...


Hope to see you all at the next match on June 23.

Thanks to all who participated - Some drove a fair distance!

Too many people involved in organizing and running things to thank individually, but a great job done by all. 

Conditions started quite calm, but typical spring weather was running by the time we got to 200 yards - The 200 yard scores reflect that. 

We were missing our ace photographer Paul, so this is a pretty plain post!  Feel free to add anything you may have on your phones!

The 100 Yard Agg:


The 200 Yard Agg:  (I see I had mistakenly set this up as Light Varmint - It was, of course, Heavy Varmint!)

Club Events / Mission - April 2018 Benchrest Group Shoot
« on: April 10, 2018, 09:20:10 PM »
We shot Group at our regular monthly match.  Weather was unsettled, with light, switchy winds often running uprange. 

We welcomed Kerr Mcconnell, a new shooter, as well as Mike and Paul who returned.  Sounds like a bug may be biting... 

Thanks to Joe for running the match and measuring the targets, to Art for preparing the targets and backers.  Thanks also to Sam's nephew Adrian also showed up to help with targets and data entry.  We're hoping to recruit him for next month's registered shoot.   Adrian was seen practicing after the match - We need new shooters with good eyes!

Next month is our annual BRSC sanctioned Group Shoot on May 6 - Hope to see you all there for both events.  If you plan to come, please email me (mdumont@uniserve.com) or Joe (joemendham@hotmail.com) to reserve your spot.

Club Events / Mission - March 2018 Benchrest Group Shoot
« on: March 12, 2018, 03:24:36 PM »
We shot Group at our regular monthly match.  After a cold (well, for us) and wet winter were treated to a glorious morning, complete with a few inches of melting snow on the ground. 

The match turned into an epic struggle between Art Harder and Denis Lapierre - Denis owned 100, while Art owned 200.  In the end, Denis took the Agg by .0051.  Congratulations!

We welcomed two new shooters, Mike Daurie and Paul Higgins - We hope they become regulars. 

Thanks to Art for running the match as well as preparing the targets and backers and to Sonya and Allan for running the targets. 

We shoot group again next month on April 8 as a runup to our annual BRSC sanctioned Group Shoot on May 6 - Hope to see you all there for both events.

We shot Score at our regular monthly match.  After what seemed like a solid month of rain, the weather gods treated us to a glorious sunny day.  As always, the change of weather brought chilly fingers and a few small wind challenges. 

Thanks to Art for preparing the targets and backers, to Joe for running the match, to the target runners, to Sue for scoring and to Sonya for data entry.

We're back on March 11, shooting Group as a runup for a busy summer season - Hope to see you there.

Club Events / Mission - December Benchrest Score Shoot
« on: December 05, 2017, 08:49:48 PM »
We shot Score at our regular monthly match.  10 hardy souls braved improving weather but dropping temperatures to be greeted with relatively mild conditions.  Most of us managed to regroup at Mission Springs Pub for our traditional year end lunch, which I certainly enjoyed. 

Art managed a very successful debut for his new gun by winning the match!  Also congrats to Ted, one of our recent recruits who came in second. 

Thanks to Art for preparing the targets and backers and running the match, to the target runners and to Sue and Sonya for both scoring and data entry.

Another year in the bag - Back again in the New Year on January 7 - Hope to see you there.  Exciting things happening in the coming year, including the 2 day Bench Rest Shooters Canada Group Nationals at Mission in August as well as the ongoing runup to the 2018 World Bench Rest Championship in Calgary.

As always, feel free to contact me (mdumont@uniserve.com) or Joe (joemendham@hotmail.com) with any questions, complaints or comments. 

And the results...

Club Events / Mission - November Benchrest Score Shoot
« on: November 19, 2017, 08:44:10 PM »
We shot Group at our regular monthly match.  9 hardy souls braved the winter weather to be greeted with relatively mild conditions, although those last few points did prove elusive!  We even had a couple of ties to break.

Thanks to Joe for running the match, to Art for preparing the targets and backers, to the target runners (I was loading and missed all the names, although I think I saw a newbie or 2 pitching in!) and to Sonya for both scoring and data entry.

We're back again on Sunday, December 3 - Hope to see you there. 

And the results...
