Many thanks go out to you, Joe, Allan, Art, the target crew and Keith, for hosting the Nationals on perhaps the hottest days in recent memory in Mission. The heat played a role in that along with trying to shoot well, you had to stay ahead of the heat exhaustion! Congratulation to Hugh for being our National Champion for 2022!

Here are a few photos.

The rogues Gallery shot is L-R:
Allan M, Mike P, Steve H, Rob S, Mark D, Doug S, Hugh W, Tyler E, Rick P.

All, please be advised that the Lethbridge Fish & Game Association is hosting the above shoot after a 2 year pause. This shoot has deep roots in Alberta and with their newly renovated firing line it promises to be a great time. Course of fire, rules, and registration details are attached to this post.

Great photos, thanks Mark!

Richard Nicol has written a detailed account of his experience at the Jim Latham shoot and has given us permission to post this document which was originally posted at his home Club. I think you will enjoy it. Thanks Richard! PDF file is attached.

Very pleased to report that Tyler Edmunds is your Stampede Shootout Champion for 2022! Tyler was steady the whole weekend in a well earned win.

Also happy to report Mark Dumont was second with a terrific "road" game.

Thanks go out to the numerous out of town shooters who made the effort to get to Rosebud in these times of high gas prices among other escalating costs. Further go out to the Rosebud Club and the helpers as well. See attached results and I will post an equipment list as soon as it is ready.

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.
L-R Hugh Williamson, Wayne Miller, Dean Weger, Rick Pollock, Vic Edmunds

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!
