After much debating about continuing or canceling THE TRADITIONAL EARLY MARCH MATCHES, I'm sorry to say that due to existing conditions created by Ol' Man Winter upon the range, the March 2014 Small bore & Air Rifle Silhouette matches at Factoryville Sportsman's Club will have to be cancelled (for the first time that I know of over the last 5 years).

Even with some sort of warmup, the amount of snow and ice melt will create a swamp effect out there, and even if I manually clear the berms of snow now, it's just going to be too much.

We will be looking to see you at the April 13 Season opener.

Re: 2014 Factoryville Pa. Smallbore & Air Rifle matches

Hello shooters!

Just a reminder that FSC will be shooting Air Rifle and Smallbore Silhouette this Sunday, May 11th. I know it's tough being Mother's day.

9:00 - 9:30 is practice, followed by Air Rifle, followed by smallbore at approximately 10:30-10:45.

It has been suggested by a few that there should be separate practice sessions for each, if it's the feeling of the majority, it can be adjusted for June and moving forward, send me feedback so I know.

Thanks!

Re: 2014 Factoryville Pa. Smallbore & Air Rifle matches

Hello all,

Just a reminder we will be having our Smallbore & Air Rifle Silhouette matches Sunday, June 8th.

A slight change to the schedule:
9:00 - 9:30 Smallbore Silhouette practice
9:45 SBS matches start, ending approx 11:45

12:00 - 12:30 Air Rifle Silhouette practice
12:45 ARS matches start, ending approx 1:30

Also a head's up, I'm looking to relinquish the Silhouette match director stuff next year, or even sooner if someone is willing to come on board. It's not really that hard to do in it's basic form, but with all the other things on my plate, I have to start pulling back on some things.

Everything is basically setup already and is turnkey for a smooth transition, will provide a list of sources of supply for pins, targets and other things though we do have a good inventory as of now for both Smallbore and Air Rifle. Whomever is interested let me know. One would have to be a FSC & NRA member.

Re: 2014 Factoryville Pa. Smallbore & Air Rifle matches

The Silly Silhouette rolls over from last month, chickens and pigs are $9.00, turkey and ram are $15.00.


Practice for ARS approximately 12:00 - 12:30, with the match starting shortly thereafter ending about 1:30.

Re: 2014 Factoryville Pa. Smallbore & Air Rifle matches

Hello all,



Next Sunday, Sept. 14 will be our next Silhouette matches at Factoryville.


9:00 - 9:30 Smallbore Silhouette practice with 2 40 round matches following, $10.00 for both matches, under 16yrs old and new shooters free. Silly Silhouette prize is $9.00 chicken & pig, $15.00 turkey and ram.

It's possible that the September match may be the last one of the 2014 season as the October match may be cancelled due to some scheduling conflicts. When confirmed I'll make sure to let everyone know.
