"Many thanks to all the shooters we had join us at the Feb 11th 2017 LRC Warm Up Match. There were 7 new faces to attend LRC Events with an additional 3 Novice shooters who helped RO at last years finale. It’s always great to see so many new shooters being drawn into this game!!
This was truly a winter event and on the brutal side, winds were 5-30 mph from the beginning at 8:30am and only finally let up to the 5-10 mph level after 3:30…. Last squad finished up around 4:15pm.
Temp ranged from about 29’ to 36’ F and station 6 still had significant snow on the shooting line! (It’s the movement stage and it was difficult not to slide when trying to plant yourself on a shooting mat).
A few guys got lucky and were squaded with Donavon F of Big Sky RV, as he shuttled them in a closed cab Kubota ORV! For the rest of us (well I rode my 4wheeler J) had to hike and be exposed to the elements the whole time. I saw a lot of big smiles and I know I had a great time practicing with Brandon! Sure learned a bunch about shooting off a tripod…. Basically I’d much rather not if I don’t have to!!
We all struggled with the wind and the scores showed it, but that’s what this Field Practical Rifle game is all about: Who can judge the wind the best along with solid fundamentals.
Big thanks to Mod Adahy for bringing Radio’s that actually worked!! I now know what LRC will be buying before the big match in July.

Ok, for everyone’s reference a perfect score for last Saturday’s COF would have been 111! So Brandon’s 59 pts = 53%. LRC will be continually doing our best to improve the course difficulty level so top shooters are getting closer to 70% on tough condition days and 90% one days with little wind. We really want everyone hitting more steel, certainly not as much fun when most of your lead is going in the dirt!
Next match is scheduled for Saturday March 18th at 7:30 am and we will be accessing from the match entrance on the south side. This will be our first points event of the 2017 season so hope you can reserve it on your calendars. Round count will be near 100 with Trophies, Cash and some prizes. Asking for preregistration/payment on website and this gets you a 12% discount. Looking forward to seeing everyone again soon! 

Glen Demaray, LRC Director

FORMAT/RULE Changes: Scoring will be Individual, however we are going to run stations like a Team. Basically you can choose one other person from your squad to give you feed back such as wind/missed shots corrections, range/location of targets and even assistance in building your position.
-You may bring a partner specifically for this purpose, the only caveat is they must also be competing in the match.
-There must be at least one other competitor or RO (non-team member) on the spot to confirm impacts in order for any impact call to count to maintain fair play.
-You may choose to run any station with out a partner, but you will forfeit any under time feedback from the attending RO.
-Tripods will be allowed for rifle support on all stations EXCEPT #7 and #8.

Targets: All Reactive steel from 100-1075yards

Minimum Round Count is 80.

Entry Fee is $45 and you can pay on website with CC.
or pay with check/cash match morning. If you have not been to LRC in the past 8 months then you must sign a liability waiver and bring it with you, these can bee downloaded of our events page as well. Directions will be emailed once competitors have made some form of verbal or email commitment! jack.inc.mt@gmail.com

-Here is the Course of Fire: It's exactly the same as our 2016 Finale Event minus station 1(mover) and station 9(UKD on top of hill) plus changes above.
