The Second Annual Downeast Challenge is in the books, with a lot of easygoing Open Rifle Sessions through Thanksgiving (Maybe more if its a mild start to Winter). It does seem like yesterday we were waiting for last of the ice to melt and the Spring rain to end so we could get out on the range.
We saw some great shooting across every High Power Rifle Discipline. We witnessed some extraordinary skill and results. Best of all we saw many new shooters, some we saw week in and week out throughout the season and saw them improve dramatically. We look forward to seeing their progress next year.
All of our Rifle Committee Members embraced significant changes the last few years. We helped lead the way in New England to bring Electronic Targets to our range. After two years we can't think of a shooter, first time, very new and even National Record Holders say they would go back unless they had too!
We have seen a dramatic growth with the AR-Tactical Class in High Power, anyone can shoot affordably. For Precision Rifle we are adding NRL 22LR year round - an affordable option for PRS style shooting. Best of all (young or old) if you have a magazine fed 22LR you can come have fun. We think these will be popular and a great way to bring more shooters to our facility - All Events are open to the Public.
We want to open up these rifle options, since they are attracting more long time as well new rifle shooters. We will continue to support our existing shooters, and keep experienced shooters engaged and competitive (And maintain the BIG BONUS they provide - their knowledge and experience they so willingly share).
Affordability and Fun our our doctrine, but we will continue to support excellence. We are a membership driven club, but we are open to the rifle shooting community as whole. Our range is open for them at any of our events, practices and training sessions. All rifle shooters are welcome at our Range period. We hope to coordinate and partner more closely with other clubs and ranges throughout Maine and New England.
2020 will be a great year thanks to the Shooters.
We have found this to be one of our most popular and perfect Season Wrap Up Event. So we are going to Establish the Downeast Challenge Region beginning in 2020. We hope to see you on the Range!
