Thanks 90 shooters, S.O.s, score-keepers – everyone – for dealing with the heat and making today’s match great.
Ricky and Kay announced officially today that the 2nd Coins for Children Charity match is scheduled for Saturday, September 6, 2014. Tarheel Targets signed on as another sponsor offering a dueling tree for the event. We’ll have more details on a special page here at H2O in the next few days.
The Harnett Region Friends of NRA is raffling a Mossburg Night Train III .308 rifle with 4×12 scope. Tickets are $10.00 each or 3 for $20.00. Contact us and we’ll arrange tickets for you.
Eddie & Sandra: There are a few more cans and Andy and Shari said they would add a few more – give Andy a call to make the pickup arrangements.
If “J” would like to make public the video of the Blackhawk mishap – please let us know where it is posted. Putting “truth” to that “legend” would be a big help to all of the shooting community and all of the instructors at H2O. Send us a link if you should decide to upload it. And – again – we are very not-happy that it happened at all – but, happy that you were not seriously hurt.

Here’s what the weather.com says about next weekend for the match: Let’s hope it stays that way! If you can – and want to help – come out Friday and help us clean up and setup for Saturday’s match.
Last year we had 86 scored shooters (and lots of spectators and volunteers) who helped make the 1st Annual a giant success. We would love to see all of you (and more – bring your friends!) next Saturday.
The match is ON. Because of the heavy rain Thursday and Friday there will be little movement required in the stages. The range is drying out quickly and the weather is supposed to be beautiful by lunch-time.
Registration/Orientation from 9am to 10am – shooting starts at 10:00 am.
Don’t forget to set your clocks forward tonight/tomorrow morning!
Thanks everyone for squishing around in the mud with us today, and thanks again Allen for all of your hard work.
