APRIL MATCH RESULTS
April was a good month for matches at Fort Harmar. We held three matches last month; IDPA, .22 silhouette and the cowboy match. All of these matches are great fun and open to everyone that wants to come out and enjoy the sport. All of FHRC matches welcome beginners and first time shooters. There is always someone at these matches willing to show you the ropes and explain the rules. If you have any questions about a particular match, just contact the match director. Their contact information can be found on the Fort Harmar website at www.fortharmar.com

For The Couples
There will be a couples pistol match held on Saturday June 1 from 10am to 3pm. Bring your significant other out to the pistol range for a day of shooting. All shooting will be done from the standing position with minimal movement and no holster work. This match only requires your pistol, 150 rounds of ammo, eye and ear protection. This will be a great match to introduce your life partner to the shooting sports. There will be experienced shooters and safety officers there to help everyone so being a newbie or first timer is no excuse. Come out and enjoy the day. Cost is $10 first time through and only $5 if you have so much fun you want to shoot through again. Please contact John and Sharon Lankford for details at 740-373-4574.

Shooting Olympic style
If you see Mike Steinel around the ranges, stop and congratulate him. He did a fantastic job out in Colorado last month shooting for a spot on the Olympic team. Mike demonstrated maturity and coolness under pressure beyond his years by finishing 19th out 104 in air rifle and 34th out of 71 in small bore. A majority of the shooters he competed against were college team shooters but Mike held his cool and finished very well for his first time at an event like this.

Fort Harmar and Glock Buckeye State Ballistic Challenge
Will be held July 26, July 27, and July 28
