There will be a BBQ on the Saturday after the shooting is completed. The club will supply the side dishes and soft drinks. The shooters should bring their own steaks, burgers etc to grill.

Friday practice day and BR201 is available for everyone. Out of towners and non-members let me know in advance if you plan to participate in this so we can arrange access on the Thursday and Friday.

Last thought, I will have an area set up for a BR swap meet, so feel free to bring BR related items you wish to display for sale.

It is very helpful for us to know in advance who all is coming to this shoot, to arrange helpers and support to make the match run smoothly To that end please let me know if you are attending, unless we have communicated already.

Great to hear Calvin, and kudos to everyone involved in hosting the BR101 at Selkirk. The biggest challenge is in finding equipment. Time for everyone to look in their safe and see what they can part with and sell to someone new getting in the sport.

Equipment list is attached.

A sample of the rail guns on the line this weekend.

Well we got this shoot in just before it starts raining for the next 4 days, so we are feeling very lucky! It was a great weekend of shooting the unlimited class. If I recall this is the only place in Canada shooting unlimited class BR. We had 13 shooters out for our first shoot of the season. A good time had by all. Hugh Williamson was the big winner with Vic Edmunds takin second place. At times windy especially on Saturday, Sunday morning was fairly calm for the first 2 targets then the wind got going.

Notable performances from a number of shooters with 8 screamers being shot and a possible BRSC record shot by Wayne Miller with an .053" in Unlimited 5 shot at 100 yds.


Unlimited 10-Shot 200 yds:
Vic Edmunds - .420"
Rick Pollock - .400"
Vic Edmunds - .408"
Hugh Williamson - >422"

Unlimited 10-shot 100 Yds:
Rick Pollock .191"

Unlimited 5-Shot 100 Yds.:
Wayne Miller - .053" (a possible BRSC Record)

Unlimited 5-Shot 200 Yds:
Dean Weger .243"
Rick Pollock - .160"

Results attached below, and bottom picture is of the the Shooters  and their screamer certificates they earned today.

Yesterday Hugh Williamson, Wally Pollock and, myself went to the LFGA grand re-opening of their facility. This coincided with National Range Day and the 99th Anniversary of the founding of the Club. Check them out at:

Numerous renovations have taken place, notable for bench shooters is the extension of the Range #2 which is the Benchrest range. It now includes an expanded firing line and 16 concrete benches.

 A big shoutout to Dave Fisher and his crew for the fine work they have done to make this possible.

Benchrest is alive and well in Lethbridge!

A good time had by all. Thanks to the Rosebud Club for making the range available for the day, and especially thanks to all the coaches, Rob, Tony, Hugh, Vic, Tyler, Bob, Larry.  Hope to run it again next year.

Calvin, good on you guys for organizing this. You may be surprised by the response. I know Calgary and Rosebud are oversubscribed at this point and we have to turn some folks away simply due to lack of coaches.

A remarkable group was shot by Greg King at an NBRSA registered shoot in St. Louis on April 3rd using an HWP barrel. A stunning .083" in HV 200 yds, which has been submitted for consideration as an NBRSA record. Well done to Greg King!

Club Events / BR101 Clinic at Rosebud Range May 14, 2022

The Rosebud Silhouette & Benchrest Club is pleased to announce it will hold a Benchrest 101 Clinic on May 14, 2022 at the club. This is our first chance to resume these clinics after having to cancel the 2020 and 2021 clinics, and are we ever glad to be back and offering this clinic.

This clinic provides an introduction to competitive Benchrest shooting. The focus will be on short range (100-200 yd) group shooting using center fire BR rifles.

This clinic will appeal to the accuracy enthusiast who is serious about entering the world of competitive BR shooting. The Clinic will provide the first step of many steps in learning to shoot BR at a regional, national and international level. The clinic is available to shooters who have not taken the clinic in previous years. You do not have to be a Rosebud member to attend.

The Clinic takes the better part of a full day, so you will need to plan accordingly. We will start at around 9:00 AM with part of the morning taken up in the clubhouse discussing the basics of Benchrest shooting, such as suitable cartridges, rifles, reloading, the match format, among many other topics. We will also use the morning to set up wind flags and bench rest equipment such as front rest and rear bags.

There will be a 30 minute lunch break and then in the afternoon there will be informal shooting instruction on the rifle range. Students will shoot using state of the art BR rifles and rests, wind flags, and all other associated equipment. This will also be a good time to see what cartridge reloading at the range is all about, and to see what how to keep clean a rifle bore to BR standards.

For this Clinic the coaches will supply the rifles and ammo, along with all the other equipment necessary to shoot a match. A coach will be assigned to each student. There is no need to bring your own rifle or sand bags etc., the coaches will provide that. Note the coaches are current and past members of the club who shoot at the Regional, National and World level. These folks have been there, done that and got the T-shirt so to speak.

All you need to do is bring your hearing protection, eye protection, lunch and refreshments. We expect to be done at about 4:00 PM.

Depending on availability of spare rifles, coaches etc we will likely limit this to about 20 shooters. I would recommend people sign up early.

To register please contact me at the e-mail below, or feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
