   Entries are slowly filling up the roster for the Overlord Memorial Cup Regional NRA Action Pistol Championship and the Cardinal Cup Va State NRA Action Pistol Championship matches at the end of September.  Get your entries in before the September 8th deadline if you plan to shoot with us in case we fill up as has happened in the past with some shooters being turned away.  These are the largest AP matches east of the Mississippi and the third largest in the U.S.

   The prize tables will be visited by random drawing, so everyone has a chance at the "good stuff".  Anticipated prizes will exceed $10,000 with over half that already received.

   Work was needed on B range (Practical/Bullseye/Rimfire Benchrest) due to "bullet erosion" on the crossties from Bullseye and Rimfire Benchrest matches.  The replacement of those was projected to take 2 days to complete and the range was originally to be closed on August 19th and 20th.  More volunteers than anticipated showed up to get the work done!

   Due to the talent and commitment of John Vinblad, Jeff Bertrand, Gary Gallion, Steve Kalinski and Clark Spencer the "two day" project on range B of tearing down the old crossties and replacing with the new timber took five hours.  The crew worked diligently in the 95+ degree weather in order to complete the project.  The work is 95% complete with the need to allow the lumber to dry, seal it, and paint numbers on the designated the target areas before the matches next month.

   Thanks again for a job well done.
