The April 5th club match will be a great opportunity to dust off your rifle and get dialed in before the Missouri State Championship.
The club matches are a great way for Benchrest shooters to try out F-Class. They are very laid back and there is even a Bench class for the shooters that can't or would rather not shoot from the prone position. Bring your Benchrest rifle and attend one of these matches. I bet you will have a blast! The first one is just 10 days away.
Our first match is this Thursday. I hope to see several of you there.
What calibers dominate that shoot? I would assume the same as 600 yard benchrest? 6BR, 6dasher??? Or do the 7mm dominate? Just curious. Lee

Our next match is this Thursday, June 7th.
I hope everyone had a great Independence Day! We have a NRA Mid-range 88 round match at the club this Sunday the 8th, followed by the Midwest Championship on the Thursday the 12th. I hope to see you there.
I would love to try F Class in 2013. How to I go about it?
There is a NRA 88-round match on October 20th. If you would like to see how it works and what equipment is used, I recommend attending the match as a spectator. It is free to watch and you will learn much more than anything you can read in a book or on an internet forum. If this date doesn't work for you, I will be posting the 2013 match dates sometime in January.
Thanks Ryan. I will come check it out.
