Winter Adult Indoor Archery League Begins Monday, January 9th, 2023 @ 6:30pm

This is just a fun indoor archery league for practice, with cash prize at last session!  The Adult Archery League will run on Monday evenings from January 9, 2023 through March 13, 2023, begins at 6:30pm, ages 16 and above, must provide own bow, arrows with target points only, and other equipment.  We will be shooting at foam 2D targets, paper targets also available.  There is a $25 fee due at first session ($2 reduced range fee per week, and cash prize at last session).  Please contact Archery Chairman Brian DuBois at (413) 770-7861 for questions and more information.

Winter Indoor Pistol League Begins Thursday, January 12th, 2023 @ 6:30pm

The in-house Winter Indoor Pistol League will commence IN PERSON on Thursday, January 12, 2023 at 6:30pm and continue every Thursday for 10 weeks until March 16th.  It will feature both rim fire and center fire pistol matches, and rim fire rifle competitions.  There will be 3 events in all.  The cost will be $40.00 for one event and $5.00 for each event after that.

We will start at 6:30pm shooting the rim fire rifle match.  Each shooter will shoot 30 rounds at a 50 ft. small bore rifle target (A-17).  Shooters may lean against the front of the port and rest their elbows on the top of the port.  Rifles may be equipped with scopes.

At 7pm, we will shoot an NRA gallery rim fire bullseye pistol match.  Each shooter will shoot 10 rounds at a standard 50 ft. slow fire target (B-2), 10 rounds at a standard 50 ft. timed fire target (B-3), and 10 rounds at a standard rapid-fire target (B-3).  The NRA gallery match is shot one-handed; however, we do allow a two-handed class for our league for those who would rather shoot in this manner.

There will be a combat match when the NRA gallery match is finished.  Shooters will fire 25 rounds into a silhouette target at three different positions.  The ammunition used will be any centerfire pistol cartridge.
