BPCR makes the paper!
The BPCR provincials hosted June 6/7th at the PCFGA range were quite successful! All present had an enjoyable time, a good shoot, and a great meal thanks to the hard work of the local vollunteers.
The record gazette sports columnist on site had this to say:
As the sounds of gunfire ceased and the points were tallied, Alberta had a new provincial Black Powder Cartridge Rifle Sillhouette champion.
Gerard Miazga hit 23 targets on Saturday and 24 targets on Sunday for 47 points, which gave him a eight point lead over second place shooter Don Werklund with 39. Ron Jordan and Chris Snow each had 37 points, but Jordan earned the third place spot because he hit more targets shooting hand-held at 200 m.
Miazga was the runner-up at the provincial championship last year. In addition to the highest score, Miazga also earned a 10 pigs pin for hitting 10 targets in a row at 200 m, which are shaped like pigs, and a five ram pin for hitting five targets in a row at 500 m, which are shaped liked rams.

Range Clean Up Day a Big Success!!
Range Clean Up Day on Sunday, May 31st, was a productive day despite the moody weather!
The Clubhouse got a lot of attention, with the painting finished, baseboards on, drop ceiling put up, electrical and phone wiring complete and the both kitchen and main areas cleaned and set up. Looks good in there!
The target trailer got a lot of attention too. It was pretty much gutted and reorganized…you could hear that the team working in there was having a blast with the axe! A couple of big bonfires were ablaze to get rid of scrap wood and cardboard and kept some of us warm after the blasts of hard rain that came.
On the ranges, backboards were replaced at 25, 50 & 100 meters, the 400m rail was raised and leveled, brass was cleaned up and collected, repository barrels to store collected brass were rigged and placed beside the clubhouse, berms were treated for weeds, and cross stick boxes were fixed and filled.
Remaining signage was hung and the new roadside sign built (watch for it soon!), and the main gate partially fixed with a new wheel and raised hinges.
As you can tell, it was a productive Clean Up Day and special thanks goes out to the 18 members who came out to lend a hand! There was excellent teamwork, laughter, and an overall good time. Member volunteers are essential to the functioning of the range, so whenever you come across one of them, be sure to say “thanks!”.
