Centerfire Discussions / Sheldon Charron - Filmaker BR Documentary

Shooters,

We all know BR is perhaps one of the greatest shooting sports, and that everyone thinks they know about, but few understand the game outside of the current competitors. Sheldon has been active in the shooting sports for years and is also active in the filmaking world. Sheldon wants to get the word out about our game, having recently participated in a few shoots, he sees that there is a great story to be told, but it is not getting out to the world.

He has asked for our support in this project, in whatever amount you can spare to get this project off the ground. Check out the go fund me link:

https://www.gofundme.com/f/benchrest-documentary

I will be contributing, and I encourage everyone to contribute in a corporate, club or sanctioning body capacity. The future of the sport could use some assistance and this is but one way to get the word out.

Thanks for considering this.

Rick

Congratulations to Hugh Williamson who is our Alberta Provincial Champion. Good time had by all. A few possible records set by Hugh, Trevor and Mark. Rosebud finally gave us a break and a few teen aggs shot as well. An excellent turnout for a last match of the season, special thanks to our out of town visitors, always a pleasure to host them.

Results attached:

Reminder to everyone our last BRSC sanctioned shoot at Rosebud, will be the Alberta Provincials on Sept 7/8. We will shoot LV 100 Saturday morning and HV 100 Saturday afternoon. We will rotate benches Saturday at the end of the day, then shoot HV 200 Sunday morning and LV 200 Sunday afternoon.

Those planning to camp at the range, or those needing access on the Friday practice day need to contact me for arrangements.

If you haven't already spoken to me, please let me know if you are planning to come so we can be sure to have the correct amount of helpers.

Thanks

Thanks to Mark, Art, Jeff, Frank and anyone else I missed for hosting the BRSC Nationals. An excellent turnout, and a good time was had by all! A picture of Joe Mendham, winner of the 2-Gun and the National Champion, is attached.

Well folks it is hard to know where to begin when thanking everyone who made it possible to host the WBC. The visiting shooters were very complimentary about the range and the organization of the event. The feeling was we raised the bar for future WBC events and we should all take a bow for all that was accomplished.

We literally could not have done it without all our great volunteers and helpers over the last months and even years.

The support from the Rosebud Club and the APRA has been great, we could not have expanded the firing line, and re-contoured the range or expanded the clubhouse without their support.
The support from all our sponsors has also been fantastic, special mention to Korth and Plenty O Patches who stepped up as Gold and Silver level title sponsors.
Hard to count the volunteers who helped out, they made it possible, so my heartfelt thanks to: Tyler and Vic Edmunds, Tony Gauthier, Mark Dumont, Paul Ross, Daryl Skinner, Graeme Meyer, Hugh Williamson, Scott Stevens, Brent Nabozniak, Bob Richards, Lloyd Gilmour, Carolyn Pollock, Ashley Pollock, Larry Ottman, I know I am missing others, and my apologies in advance if I missed you on this list.
Lastly thanks to the target crew and scoring crew, we had nothing but positive comments from all who attended.

Now I am going to catch up on some sleep!

Anyone can come out and watch. No problem at all. Bring your hearing protection, a spotting scope and tripod if you happen to have one, and a camera if you want to record things. Match days are July 17th-21st. Matches will run about 9am-4pm. Official practice days are July 14, 15, 16, I expect most competitors will be there about the same times, say 9-4.  Best time to talk to the shooters is on the practice days. There will be a concession open around the lunch hour.

Here are directions to the range:

Just a note that Canadians have turned in some notable performances in St. Louis. Hugh Williamson won the 2 gun and Tyler Edmunds was 4th in the LV 100. Well done to both.
