The Salem Pistol and Rifle Club in Upstate NY will be hosting the East Coast Regional Air Rifle Benchrest Championship on Aug. 4-5. I know it's three and a half months off, but I'm posting this now so everyone has plenty of time to make plans to attend what I hope will be the first of many chances for the AR BR crowd to get together for a weekend of good shooting, good food and most important of all, a chance to get together with old friends and meet some new ones!
This match will be the venue for Team USA East, as well as individuals, to shoot for the World Postal Championship under WRABF LV and HV rules at 25m. We will also try to have classes for most types of rifles and depending on demand and time hope to be able to do some 50 yard and/or meters shooting.
We are still in the process of planning the match, but hope to have some pretty decent door prize drawings and will have trophies for at least the top three places in each class.
The Salem P & R club has 16 concrete benches plus covered areas for cleaning behind the firing line. We are located one hour north of Albany, NY, 3 miles from VT. The closest GPS address is 429 Black Creek Rd., Salem, NY 12865(house across the street from the range). For anyone traveling to the area and wishing to spend more time in the area, we are just 30 miles from Saratoga Springs and the thoroughbred horse race season will be in full swing. Lake George, a popular vacation spot is also nearby, as well as picturesque Vermont.
