After the Precision Shooting Board of Directors meeting in Johnstown NY on August 23--some interested parties met with John Delsalvio and Harold Miller from the Pine Tree Club and plans have been firmed up to conduct a registered 2 day Score Shoot at the club in 2009. they plan to run as the 2009 NYS Score Championship. Dates will be coordinated to optimize the attendance.

They will do this first match as score as the rebuild to the range facilities did not yet include moving backers.

They have a new covered firing line with concrete pad and 35 benches.

I hope that the place is filled and overflowing for the tournament at the Home of Modern Benchrest Shooting.

Will one day be one yardage and the second day a different yardage? Or, will one day be LV and the other day be HV?

Thanks Jim. For those of us that have shot at Johnstown it is wonderful news-it is a special place. The Pine Tree Club is benchrest's version of Fenway Park.
