Club Events / Mission - September 2019 Benchrest Group Shoot
« on: September 16, 2019, 08:47:11 PM »
We shot Group at our regular monthly match.  A relatively thin turnout of 7 shooters shot the morning after the first fall rainstorm of the year.  Conditions were almost dead calm, a rarity for our range.  With that said, results were disappointing at best!

Thanks to Joe for preparing the targets and backers, calling the match and doing the scoring.  Thanks to Pete, Art and Joe for running the targets and to Art for organizing the finances.

Next month we will shoot Group again on October 20 - We need the practice!  Hope to see you there.

And the results...  100 yards:


... 200 yards ...


... and the Agg:

Ray is back in action, organizing things, taking our money and calling the match.  Also thanks to Mel, Derek and Man Kay for scoring.

Conditions were fairly mild, although there were some surprises as always.   

Next match is September 18 - Hope to see you all there.   

Here are the results, sorted by class and rank.  Additions and changes to the Equipment List are appreciated. 



...and here are the ongoing numbers for the year-end title.  You have to shoot at least 5 matches to get a reasonable average... 

I believe the spreadsheet is correctly calculating the top 5 - Please bring any errors to my attention!

Mission Rod & Gun hosted a full house of 24 shooters from across Canada as well as the US to compete in the 2019 BRSC Group Nationals.   

Our west coast weather provided 3 different challenges for practice as well at the 2 days of competition - Conditions were interesting to say the least.     

Joe Mendham used his years of experience on the range to bring home the 2 Gun trophy.  Congrats to him as well as our other winners. 

Frank Oblak returned from the North to run the targets and call the match, and Jeffrey Insel did a fine job of scoring.  Many others lent a hand to moving the backers and general setup for the match - Thanks to you all.

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

Next year's match will be held in Calgary - Hope to see you all again.

Here are the results:

Our annual BR50 Championship has been renamed in honor of the late Bob Goehring who was the driving force behind Rimfire Benchrest in the Lower Mainland.  We miss him greatly. 

Ray returned to his position as money taker and match runner.  Ray also did a stellar job of filling the prize table for this event!  Also thanks to Mel, Derreck and Man Kay for scoring.

And thanks to our sponsors!

We welcomed Dave, Mike and Tammy from Vancouver Island - Thanks for taking the ferry ride to participate!

Conditions were quite mild and the scores reflected that. 

Next match is August 24 - Hope to see you all there.   

Here are the results, sorted by class and rank.  Additions and changes to the Equipment List are appreciated. 


...and here are the ongoing numbers for the year-end title.  Once again, you have to shoot all matches to get a reasonable average until more than 5 matches have passed.  How time flies, only 3 more matches this year!

Club Events / Mission - 2019 Jim Latham Memorial VFS Shoot
« on: July 13, 2019, 02:36:23 PM »
Weather was chilly and drizzly for the seventh annual Fraser Valley VFS Championship.  While conditions seemed benign, there were things happening on the range...

As usual, we started at 300 yards followed by 200 and 100 yardages.

Thanks to all our shooters for participating and keeping the schedule tight. 

It was definitely a group effort - Joe ran the match and prepped the targets, Pete, Vlad and Allan ran the targets and Art did the scoring.

Grand Agg:  1st Joe Mendham, 2nd Ted Veale, 3rd Art Harder
100 yard Agg:  1st Aubrey White, 2nd Art Harder, 3rd Joe Mendham
200 yard Agg:  1st Joe Mendham, 2nd Ted Veale, 3rd Mark DuMont
300 yard Agg:  1st Joe Mendham, 2nd Ted Veale, 3rd Dan Zaccanti

Detailed match results:

Once again Mission Rod and Gun will be hosting the BRSC Group Nationals on August 3 & 4. 

Light Varmint / Heavy Varmint, 100 & 200 yards, for a total of 20 5 shot groups. 

Practice day on Friday, August 2. 

If you are planning to attend, please email me (mdumont@uniserve.com) or Joe Mendham (joemendham@hotmail.com) to let us know.

We'd also be happy to answer any questions.

Club Events / Mission - June 2019 Benchrest Score Shoot
« on: June 27, 2019, 12:54:58 PM »
Nine shooters showed up to shoot Score for our June match as a runup to the Jim Latham match in early July.  We shot 200 and 300 yards using the 10 - 11 scoring system.

Spring conditions with moderate switchy conditions. 

Joe prepped the targets, Pete and Vlad took care of running and stripping the targets,  and Art handled scoring.  Thanks to all!

Next match is the Jim Latham Memorial on Sunday, July 7, and don't forget the BRSC Group Nationals on August 3 & 4.

And the results...

With Ray away, Paul stood in as money taker and match runner.  Also thanks to Mel, Derek and Man Kay for scoring.

We welcomed Dave, Mike and Tammy from Vancouver Island, and they proceeded to show us how it is done.  We need to keep telling ourselves that competition improves the breed.  Seriously, we do hope they return soon. 

Conditions were tricky, with shifty spring breezes. 

Next match is July 27, the Provincial Championships - Hope to see you all there.   

Here are the results, sorted by class and rank.  Additions and changes to the Equipment List are appreciated.

Now I have to get myself some more wind flags...

First, just wanted to thank Jeffrey Insel, who stepped up to score the match after a last minute call.  (Paul, our regular scorer, was caught in Kelowna with a light aircraft and bad weather - A better than average excuse!)

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. 

Weather was interesting - High on Saturday was 13.5 degrees, with 16 mm of rain.  High on Sunday was 23.1.  This sort of weather change made for some interesting conditions.  As Joe pointed out, there were some small groups, but there were some real clangers as well.  It's also interesting to compare the conditions to those from the Heavy Iron shoot in Calgary.  Next year, we have to plan our shoots for different weekends!

With Ray away, Paul stood in as money taker and match runner.  Also thanks to Mel and Derek for scoring and to Gord P for organizing the targets.

We welcomed Micheal (a junior, Gord Dale's nephew) to the competition - Hope to see him again! 

Conditions were wet, cold and rainy.  The pros shot through it, although the rest of us mortals took a bit of a hit!

Next match is June 22 - Hope to see you all there.   

Here are the results, sorted by class and rank.  I managed to copy most of the equipment list, additions and corrections accepted.

Here are the ongoing scores working towards the trophy for the "best of 5" shoots over the year.  For now, if you only shot 1 of the 2 matches your score will average out to one half your single score.  This should start to make more sense once we get more matches under our belts.  Please report any errors in transcription or arithmetic ASAP!

Club Events / Mission - April 2019 Benchrest Group Shoot
« on: April 30, 2019, 08:50:12 PM »
We shot Group at our regular monthly match.  A full turnout of 12 shooters were treated to a lovely day, with calm conditions to start but getting increasingly tricky as things warmed up. 

We actually had to turn away a shooter, and plan to go to multiple relays at a single distance if the popularity of the event continues to increase.  I'll remind everyone it's important to let us  know you are coming, and to also let us know if your plans change. 

Thanks to Joe for preparing the targets and backers and calling the match, to Art for organizing the finances and to Paul who showed up to measure all 120 targets.  Also thanks to those who ran and stripped the targets. 

Congrats to Joe for his sizzling .085 target at 100 yards, easily best group of the day!

Next month we host our yearly BRSC Registered Group Shoot on May 26 - Heavy Varmint, 5x5 shot groups at each of 100 and 200 yards.  If you haven't told us you are coming, please get in touch.  Hope to see you there.

And the results...  100 yards:

The match was very much a group effort - Thanks to Ray for administration, and to Derek, Art,  Mel and Man Kay for scoring.  Great to see Man Kay back!

Conditions were a little tricky with the tail end of the storm that went on to dump snow on the BC mountains and much of Alberta.  Scores weren't quite as shiny as last month!

Next match is May 25 - Hope to see you all there.   

Here are the results - The Equipment List is looking much better - Thanks all for filling out the forms.

Match will be held Sunday, May 26 at Mission Rod and Gun starting at 9am.  Setup begins at 8.

Heavy Varmint, 5 x 5 shot groups at each of 100 and 200 yards. 

Practice day is Saturday, May 25 starting at 9am.  The club cafeteria is open both days.

This is a BRSC registered shoot, so you must be a member of Benchrest Shooters Canada to participate.  (If this is your first BRSC registered shoot, this requirement is waived.  BRSC also recognizes NBRSA members.) 

Please get back to me (mdumont@uniserve.com) or Joe (joemendham@hotmail.com) if you plan to attend, or with any questions, comments or concerns. 

Thanks to you all for your support, and hope to see you May 26th.

Mark and Joe

First match of the year, and first match without Bob.  We all miss him, but managed to pull it together. 

Gord has donated a memorial trophy in Bob's name to be given out for high score in our July tournament - Thanks Gord!

The match was very much a group effort - Thanks to Mel for organization, Ray for phoning all participants (nice to talk to a real person) and handling administration, and to Derek, Art and Gord for scoring. 

We welcomed Dominic as a new shooter - Hope to see him again. 

Congrats to Paul on the win in BR, and to Ray for the win in Sporter.  Also congrats to Mel - After a slow start, he pulled off best target of the day.   

Next match is April 27. 

Here are the results - I need to pester everyone for the Equipment list next month!

Club Events / Mission - March 2019 Benchrest Group Shoot
« on: March 18, 2019, 08:58:19 PM »
We shot Group at our regular monthly match.  A full turnout of 12 shooters got what should be the last sub-zero match of the spring.  Conditions started quite mild, but as usual picked up for the 200 yard distance. 

We'd like to welcome 4 new shooters - Jim, Tony, Chad and Matt - Hope they had fun and that we'll see them again. 

The old guard stood down to give everyone else a chance to play.  If the turnout continues to grow, we may have to shoot relays and only a single distance per match - Other suggestions are welcome.

Thanks to Joe for preparing the targets and backers and calling the match, to Art for organizing the finances and to Paul who showed up to measure all 120 targets.  Also thanks to those who ran and stripped the targets. 

Congrats to Pete on winning the Grand Agg and 200 yard match and to Mike for his 100 yard win and best group of the day. 

Next month our regular shoot is on April 28, where we will shoot Group as a runup to the BRSC Group Shoot on May 26.  Hope to see you all at both events.   

And the results...  100 yards:
