River Bend Gun Club's 2017 Centerfire Benchrest Matches -- Schedule
See schedule attached; also, see www.rbgc.org for more information (including directions).
Per Jim Andress, "RBGC matches are open to the public. Matches typically begin at 9:00AM, so arrive early. Cost for non-registered matches is typically $20. RV parking is available."
At some matches, Jim pays money to the winners -- so, don't risk leaving money on the table by not being there.

Jan '17 Match Results
We had ten shooters at the 100/200 yard group, club match at River Bend today, including Mark Roper who, as far as I know, made his first appearance at a RBGC "club" shoot, and long-absent Steve Sanford. The in-the-shade temperature was about 52° when we started shooting and about 70° when we finished; it was a NICE day.
Jim Andress paid money to the winner of each match. Mark Roper shot the small group in three of the ten matches; the other small-group shooters were: Jim Andress (2), Roger Avery (2), Charlie Hood (2), and Scott Dittman (1). Mark had the small group at 100 yds with a .131; Charlie had the small group at 200 yds with a .224.
Scott Dittman won the 100 yard agg with a .2930; Roger Avery won the 200 yard agg with a .2431, and he won the grand agg with a .2923 -- beating Jim Andress by .0075 in the grand. I assume Roger took home the most money for having won the grand agg.
We're shooting score next month on the second Saturday -- come shoot with us.
Feb '17 Match Results
We had 14 shooters at the 100/200 yard UBR score match at River Bend today, including three new-to-River Bend shooters: Bob Baker (who came over from AL with Rick Fox from Nashville), Fred Niemiroff, and Jeff Tirpak; also, long-absent Ben Foster joined us. The in-the-shade temperature was about 43° when we started shooting and about 58° when we finished; the wind was negligible.
Dave Rabin and Charlie Hood, both shooting in the custom class, tied for the high score in the 100 yard agg with a 260; Bob Baker, shooting in the unlimited class with an "overweight" bag gun, had the high score in the 200 yd agg with a 257 (that included one target with a perfect score), and he had the high score for the grand agg with a 516 -- nine points ahead of the next closest score. I assume Bob took home a wad of money for having been the "Top Gun."
It was a nice day!

Matt Owens, from AR, probably gets the award for having come from farthest away. Roger Avery was there earlier in the week but had to leave when he got word that his mom died -- condolences to Roger.
The weather was chilly; it was about 35 when we started shooting and didn't get much above 57 later. As usual, Charlie and Cheryl Hood prepared a BBQ lunch for everyone.
A note about the 100 yd HV Small Group - Charlie Hood shot a .029 with a .30BR; however, the match director disagreed with that score -- nevertheless, Steve Lee is going to submit it for a possible world record.

Sunday update -- We had 25 shooters today. The weather was damp and very chilly; it was about 39 when we started shooting and barely made it to 45 by the time we quit. Again, Charlie and Cheryl Hood prepared a BBQ lunch for everyone.

Apr '17 Match Results
Today, we had the best club match EVER -- thanks to Phyliss Avery and MiJa Hill who provided lunch for us. Phyliss brought a chicken and sausage casserole, and MiJa brought BBQ. Thanks to both of you. The bar has been raised for club shoots!
Now for the shooting report. We had 12 shooters at the 100/200 yard UBR score match today, including new-to-River Bend-club-shoots shooters Steve Hill from SC and Kate Dittman (Scott's daughter), and long-absent Miles and Chris Gibby. The temperature in the shade was about 41° when we started shooting and about 66° when we finished.
In the 100 yd agg., Joel Danzig, shooting in custom class with one of Lester Bruno's guns, won with a 257; Roger Avery and Dave Rabin tied for second with a 256.
In the 200 yd agg., Joel and Miles Gibby tied for first with a 242.
Joel won the grand agg with a 499 (and I assume took home the most money); Dave Rabin finished second with a 496.
Kate Dittman won both yardages and the grand agg in factory class with a very nice 479 -- and no, she was not the only shooter in factory class.
It was a nice day!
