Black Friday 5-Stand Fun Blast at Blue Ridge Sportsman Club

Mark your calendars…..

Black Friday 5-Stand Fun Blast

Our final competition of the year is scheduled for 10AM Friday, November 23rd at Blue Ridge Sporting Clays. This is a 100 Target 5-Stand Competition. Due to the shoots layout, no “on station” coaching will be allowed. Given the format (5-Stand) of this competition and it’s coaching limitations, this shoot should only be considered by our more experienced shooters. Please contact me ASAP for more information and if you plan to attend.

This just in… Coach Dave will be at the 3 Bird/Buddy Shoot at Hopewell this Saturday, November 24th at 9am.  Any or all of the MDCBs are welcome to join him. Please send Dave an email ( so he knows to look for you.

iPad Raffle

We have made some progress however we are still behind with our iPad Raffle goals.  If you have tickets out, please make arrangements to turn in your stubs and money as soon as you can. If you need tickets please let me know and I’ll send you some. I really need everyone to come together and support this raffle.

Save the date…. December 9, 2012

We will be drawing the winner of the iPad at our Holiday get together at 2PM on December 9th at Jefferson Sportsmen. To help make the event a little more exciting we will be having our first Mason-Dixon Block Shoot. A Block Shoot is done with a shotgun and you shoot at a piece of cardboard with an X across it, and the closest “bb” to the center wins. Bring your shotguns and come on out and have some fun. As always, snacks and Christmas cookies are always welcome!

Bulk Ammo Order

I am putting together plans for a bulk ammo order. I must have at least 100 flats to place a bulk order and even though I have not selected a supplier, ammo should run approximately $55-$60 per flat (10 boxes or 250 rounds). I have heard back from a few of you but not enough to place an order. If you are interested speak up now or miss out.

This will be the only bulk order we do as a group for next year so if you are interested please send me an estimate of the number of flats you would like. To give you some idea of the amount of ammo you may need, each discipline (Trap, Skeet, Sporting and Olympic) you participate in will require somewhere between 2-4 flats of ammo. I need this information no later than December 9th.

Open Registration

Don’t get left out…we have spots remaining for the 2013 season.  Get your paperwork in ASAP!
