Bogue Chitto Matches Suggestion

Philip,
I was discussing these matches and attendance with another SGC member and decided one of the issues is the summer heat. Would anyone consider setting targets up the day before( I could volunteer as others I'm sure) and prepping other necessities? We wondered that with this done, could we get people there at 0700 and start shooting at 0730-0800? Personally I'd much prefer to be done before 1100 or earlier and use the morning hours to our advantage. Let me know how I can help or at the very least discuss this.
Thanks,
Racine

While I agree heat is an issue; this is why we start earlier June - September, and in the past have not scheduled matches in September unless at the 100 yd covered range on Hwy 98- the bigger issue is that in the past 2 years attendance has dropped to very low levels: we only had 5 show up for the State Championship, and it was even advertised on state-wide radio!! On the other hand, if there is a person to whom the officers wish to give the combinations / access , and he/she / they are willing to go to Bogue Chitto the night before to set up targets, prep the pit supplies, etc., I think that is great. I myself usually would not be able to do this as I usually am not home from work until after 5 pm, and the range is 26 miles from my house.
Please pass your idea along to Doug Bowser, Mike Lowe, etc. I have nothing against any club member who wishes to help with the work! Usually I get there with my son and we end up doing the majority of set-up. Good idea.

I got a message from Mr. Bowser that neighbors are the concern about shooting early. Perhaps we can discuss this with the officers at the next club meeting. Several clubs I have belonged to have a start time of 0800 so I don't see where that wouldn't be reasonable especially out in the countryside where Bogue Chitto is located. Of course this would have to be discussed with the lands owner. Either way I don't see where being able to set up is not doable the afternoon before to facilitating an 0800 start?

I agree, it is just a question of who will have access / responsibility. I don't think anyone is close enough that an 8:00am start up - at Burns - not at McComb where there are neighbors - is going to be a problem, perhaps Doug was thinking of the McComb range.

Please let me know the outcome. I run the F-class matches at Bogue Chitto and during the hot months we would like to get a earlier start also. I had asked Doug a couple of years ago and he said we could not start before 9:00 am, I agree with you that I don't think we are that close to anyone to disturb them.
Thanks
Bill

SNIPER RIFLE MATCH: JUNE 5, 2010

What: We all have read stories of the Snipers of WW2 and Viet Nam. Simo Hayha (505 confirmed kills in 91 days), Vasili Zaitsev and Carlos Hathcock are all familiar names to most riflemen. I thought it might be interesting to have a match designed to test our skills in this type of shooting. It will be a hit or miss situation, close only counts in horseshoes.

Southwest Gun Club’s Burns Range at Bogue Chitto, MS., Exit I-55 at Bogue Chitto (Exit 30), drive East through town, cross over the railroad tracks and continue to the first crossroad (Pricedale Road), turn left and go 100 yards to Hunter Road, turn right and drive approximately 2.2 miles, look for a large gate and triangular reflector on tree on the right side of the road.

When: June 5, 2010, signup starts at 8:30 AM, shooting starts at 9:00 AM

Rifles allowed:
UNLIMITED: No weight limit, bipod or rest OK, telescope of any power, caliber .243WCF minimum.
INTERMEDIATE: 15 pound weight limit, bipod or rest OK, telescope 24 power or less, any CF rifle
SPORTER RIFLE: 9.5 pounds or less with magazine and sights, telescope of 10 power or less, bipod or rest may be used, caliber .243WCF minimum.
SMALL CALIBER SPORTER RIFLE: 9.5 pounds or less with magazine and sights, telescope of 10 power or less, bipod or rest may be used, any centerfire caliber may be used.

Equipment: Rests, bi-pods, rifle coats, gloves, and spotting scopes may be used. Any safe trigger may be used.

Course of Fire:
200 yards: Unlimited sighters in 5 minutes time limit on SR-3 target No shots for record
300 yards: Unlimited sighters in 5 minutes time limit on SR-3 target
1. 20 shots 25 minutes on SR-3 Target
600 yards: Unlimited sighters in 5 minutes time limit on SR-3 target
2. 20 shots 25 minutes on SR-3 Target
3. Aggregate is score of match 1 & 2
Scoring: In the sporting rifle classes, a hit in the black is 10 points, a shot in the white is a ZERO. We will count the X’s fired in all classes to break ties. If identical X count is achieved, the highest number of X ‘s at 600 yards will determine the winner.
The SR-3 target was chosen because it is 19”. This is approximately the size of a man’s chest.
Fees: $10.00 for Adults, $7.00 for Juniors. Shooters must provide pit services.
