  • We held our first smallbore match this Saturday, a prone 1600. We had shooters from Indy, Lafayette, and WI. The weather cooperated and everyone had a great time. We're hoping to grow this program, its really an enjoyable part of shooting sports. Thanks to Cameron Zwart, Head Coach of Grand Valley University, for running the match and making our smallbore program happen this year. Thanks to our fellow member Whitney Everest for starting the program and running it for a number of years. He's still the guy to beat at our club:)
